Let's Talk Maternity Photos

I have a love/hate relationship with maternity photos.

Some I see are like really, really amazing and make me wish I had done them.  Like these.

Tastefully done.

Simple.  Cool.  Classy.

Then you see some that are just not cool.

Terribly set up.



Just ick.

Borderline porn.

I will not post a link to icky ones as I don't want to upset anyone.

But I'm sure if you are reading this you know exactly what I'm talking about.

I know a lot of it has to do with the photographer.

Most really good photographers are not going to take untasteful, tacky, dorky, cheesy, pornish photos.

But a lot of people who think they are photographers do and these are the ones that bug the living crap out of me.

If you are going to do a maternity session you should hire a true professional to do them if you want to look back years from now and still be wowed by them.
