Pregnancy is a milestone in the life of a woman who will become a mother. A suspended moment, precious and ephemeral. Doing a pregnancy photo shoot is both a memory of your life-carrying body, but also the beginnings of your child’s story.
Organizing his first pregnancy session on the French Riviera raises many questions. Of course you have never done that, and every photographer has his own way of doing things. Today, I’m going to explain to you how a pregnancy session on the French Riviera is going with me.
But first let me show you this gorgeous pregnancy session on the French Riviera we did at sunrise with a radiant and brave couple!
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR PREGNANCY SESSION ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA?
It’s important to prepare your pregnancy session on the French Riviera for beautiful photos!
– Have a good night’s sleep and hydrate your skin well during the days before your session.
– Do a manicure! Your hands will certainly be highlighted on some photos! (Ditto for the future daddy!).
– Go for flowing clothes for pretty wind effects (a fluid long dress will do).
– Make arrangements for the landscape you will choose. If you opt for a beachfront pregnancy session on the French Riviera, opt for a light-colored light dress and open shoes and why not a nice hat as an accessory. It would be weird to see you with a down jacket and mountain shoes.
– For photos with apparent belly, prefer a beautiful lingerie or a beautiful shirt.
– If your dress is white, consider wearing flesh-colored lingerie with or without straps depending on the dress.
– Make a little natural beauty or take the opportunity to appeal to a professional makeup artist.
– Coordinate the colors of everyone’s outfits for a more harmonious look and give preference to pastel and bright colors.
– Come light (do not clutter a big heavy bag for your session).
WHY MAKE ITS PREGNANCY SESSION ONT THE FRENCH RIVIERA OUTSIDE?
The first reason, THE FRAMEWORK! No studio offers the landscapes that we are lucky to have on the French Riviera! Isolated and wild seashores as well as magnificent mountains!
The second reason, THE LIGHT! Are we talking about our sunsets or not? Yes, of course, we talk about it! We are lucky to live this natural show every night. Light is the essential instrument of the photographer and no studio flash is able to imitate that of a sunset.
The third reason: it’s easier for you to be comfortable and in your little bubble when you are quiet in the arms of your love contemplating a beautiful landscape than in a closed room with me all ready to you and no place to move. There you can walk and relax.
It’s for all these reasons that I only do OUTDOORS pregnancy session on the French Riviera.
WHERE TO MAKE MY PREGNANCY SESSION ON FRENCH RIVIERA?
To choose the location of your pregnancy session on the French Riviera, it would be best to find a place that brings back you memories. That’s why I let you choose this place. However, think about an unfrequented location to make your session more enjoyable. It’s never easy to be comfortable with an audience. But if you have no ideas, no worries, our beautiful region is full of beautiful natural places deserted at sunset time. I will suggest some ideas and listen to all your suggestions and desires.
Each season has its charms: the winter and its misty and mysterious landscapes, the spring and its flowery fields, the summer and its evenings with the mild temperatures, the autumn and its orange colors.
WHEN TO MAKE MY PREGNANCY SESSION ON FRENCH RIVIERA?
The ideal is to make your pregnancy session on the French Riviera between the 7th and the 8th month. Your belly will be well drawn and will stand out perfectly in the photos. Also, you will, normally, still be physically fit enough to move around without any problem. And then the longer we wait, the more we take the risk that baby arrive before we have planned. ^^
