At the consultation a few days before the portrait session, we’d found out that these two loved to laugh, joke, and have fun-- in fact, Jean said, most of their snapshots were of them laughing! Naturally, they wanted the pregnancy photos to reflect their personalities and they’d looked all over Orange County to find just the right photographer. The way they related to each other, I just knew taking pictures of this couple was going to be fun!

THE MOMMY TEST
I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter. She picked up
something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that. "Why?" my daughter asked.
"Because it's been lying outside, you don't know where it's
been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied.
At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration
and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"
"Uh," I was thinking quickly, " All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test.
You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was
evidently pondering this new information.
"OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test
you have to be the daddy."
"Exactly" I replied back with a big smile on my face and joy
in my heart.
Today we celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers both past and present. It is only through their hard work and perservience that the US has become one of the greatest countries in the world. Job well done!
Up until that time women were expected to hide their pregnancy under oversized dresses. But now women can celebrate being pregnant. They can share the wonderful transformation they are going through. Clothing styles have change tremendously. No longer are expectant mothers hiding under enormous sheets of fabric, but instead are showing their changing shape and growing belly. Because of these changes in fashion and photography, women can show as much or as little as they want and feel good about it.
This new genre of photography has also been culturally transforming. What used to be avoided by both expectant mothers and photographers is now celebrated. Women are now encouraged by their friends and family to have professional maternity portraits taken. It’s even grown to a point where families are budgeting for it when planning their family.
And seeing beautiful photographs created by professional maternity photographers, women now feel more comfortable in sharing the beauty of their own pregnancy.
At Blue Moon Photography we offer so many choices for expectant moms. It doesn’t matter if she is looking for a conservative portrait that shows that simply reflects shape of her belly or if she’s looking for a fine art nude, we offer something for every woman.
Regardless of the style of photography they choose, they know they will look totally amazing. With our knowledge of lighting we can shape the light and shadows to create the most flattering and beautiful images of each mother and child. Oh, and those stretch marks, blemishes and uneven skin tones that sometimes occurs? They can magically disappear with some of our expert retouching - at no extra cost.
