P is for Pregnant. There is no reason why a woman who is pregnant can’t be photographed in a glamour portrait or even nude. Yet there are those in society who don’t hold this view.
Years ago when we were writing a book about boudoir photography, we included an image of a nude pregnant woman holding a teddy bear placed in such a way to create a mostly implied nude. The editor, who was a woman, totally freaked out and refused to run the portrait in the book. She never could give me a good reason why she wanted to remove the photograph—there were plenty of other nudes, implied and otherwise on its pages—but I’m guessing she felt squeamish about it.
Some clients feel that way too and while interested in an intimate portrait would prefer not to focus on their pregnancy but more on creating a sexy portrait of a woman who just happens to be pregnant. If you checked out the link (below) to our other blog post on maternity portraits, your can already see that just like at McDonald’s you can have it your way.
We photographed this and other subjects several times during their pregnancies, partially, at their request, to document their physical changes but also to try different approaches to see the many ways that intimate portraiture is flexible and is not just pose 1, pose 2 and big hats and hairdos. It is, as its name clearly states, intimate and portraiture and is also infinitely flexible in the way that only truly creative images can be produced. This is just one of them…
So you can see there are all kinds of ways to make a maternity style intimate portrait. You can do it as we have in this other portrait of the same subject or as we photographed her (above) on this particular day. As with everything we do at Blue Moon Boudoir Photography, the session is tailored for your needs and desires. We have only one goal, to make the most attractive portrait of you as possible to show the world and yourself a truly beautiful you.
