This maternity session was in Newcastle with this family of four, who were about to become five. I think maternity sessions are the perfect way to celebrate your family now as it is before you welcome a new addition to the family. Sometimes the sessions are just of a couple who are expecting their first child, and sometimes a family who has children will have the maternity session done for the first time. Some people choose them as it will be their last time they are pregnant and want to capture this special moment to be able to look back and reflect on what that time was like being pregnant.
Kids this age can normally want to do their own things on a shoot. We are in a new place, mum wants them to behave ha ha. My sessions are generally directed by the kids! I try to include activities that they may like to do and to keep them active while still getting great images for the family. Some sessions I just chase kids and try to get them at what they are loving in that moment. These boys were great and loved checking out different spots at the beach and being with mum and dad. At the end they got to go to yoghurt land!
