There is no better way to round-off my Month of Maternity posts than to give a little insight into what a session in my private studio is like. The most important aspect of a successful maternity session is COMFORT. After having my own kids and working with so many pregnant mamas-to-be, I have learned this and have strived to create a space where my clients feel comfortable and safe. But the space is only part of it – they must also feel confident in their photographer.
Miette Photography’s Signature Style
I have been a photographer for over 20 years and have been lucky enough to work in a few different photography fields. All of my experience has shaped my current style, but especially my past in fashion photography. My experience in high fashion has really helped me create my timeless, classic, clean style, with a modern edge. I always do my best to avoid trendy looks that will look dated in 10 years because I want to create images that you will be proud to show off for many years to come.
The Private Studio
My biggest tool for creating a comfortable session is my private studio. I have spent a lot of time creating a space that is easy to be in. The studio is bright, airy, welcoming and comfortable. During your shoot, the space is all yours. There is a private entrance, private bathroom, fully stocked fridge and plenty of room to move around and feel at ease.
The more comfortable you are, the better your photos will turn out. I am really proud of the space I have created, and the reaction it gets. Everyone who comes in for a shoot is immediately impressed and at ease. My experience and portfolio may be what brings people in but it is the comfort of the space and the overall experience that really helps create the look I am going for – a strong, confident, comfortable woman.
