Crystal & Frank

   Crystal is a wedding photographer here in the Scranton area and Frank is my Chiropractor. Yesterday, was actually the first time Crystal and I have met. We have talked many times via email and Facebook, but we have never run into each other before she asked me to do her session. One of the things that saddens me about being a photographer is that we rarely get pictures with us in them. We spend all our time behind the camera and very little in front of it so I was more than happy to give these images to Crystal when she asked. Later this week, I may even post some pictures of my family that were taken of us recently, but for now I’m happy to give the gift of photography to a photographer. Being a Scranton maternity photographer I know how meaningful it is to have this part of your families life documented in a way that you are proud of.

Crystal & Frank came to my home to begin their session and we spent a bit of time getting to know each other in person before the session started. I love getting to know couples before I work with them. Maternity photography is a very intimate experience. A soon to be mother is full of emotions that they have either never experienced or not experienced all that often so getting to know my subject before I pull out the camera is an essential party of my process. Getting people comfortable with me and getting comfortable with my subject is where the magic really happens. I often tell people that creating a comfortable environment for the photography to happen is the most essential part of my process. Once people are comfortable they are free to just be who they are and my job is very easy. I know that sounds strange to hear from a maternity photographer, but taking the pictures is the easy part of my process and vision for how I want the session to turn out. Collaboration between both parties is what makes the magic happen.

Here are a few images from their session that I fell in love with. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

     I love everything about this next image. This abandoned home a block away from my house was the perfect location for this shot. I am so thankful that we walked through the woods to find it. The old abandoned boat was what I was originally looking for and was happy when we walked up on this old house as it made the perfect backdrop for this next series of images.

 Being a Scranton maternity photographer is a fun job when I get an adventurous couple to work with. Both of these wonderful people were a pleasure to work with.

Preparing For Your Session

 

Nothing makes a woman glow more then carrying a child and here at Darkershadesofbrown Photography we want to help you remember that period in your life by offering creative photography for you to document it. You are about to do a very special and, for a few of you, once in a life time photo shoot! It’s worth it to take some time and prepare for it and finding Scranton maternity photographers to fit the needs of a modern mother to be is a tough task. Our goal in the portrait studio is to let you be who who are and capture the beautiful mother you are about to be.

On the day of your session, plan to relax and take it easy. Getting your hair and/or makeup done is a nice treat for yourself, and will definitely contribute to a more polished look. Choosing your outfit the night before and taking a nap on the day of the shoot will make you feel well-rested, relaxed and attractive.

A couple of hours before your session, remove any clothing that may cause lines or marks on the body.

Scarves, shawls and soft fluid fabrics make wonderful wraps for maternity portraits. Bring them along. Fabrics that cling to your curves also work well. Jeans and tops with subtle or no pattern will provide for a more contemporary look. I love all dresses, vintage and modern. The only thing I am not a big fan is whites. White is a difficult color to photograph during a natural light session. Off whites, pastels or bright tropical colors are better choices.

Keep accessories to a minimum since these can distract from a portrait.

Before the session, please discuss with me what you want them to be soft and intimate? Romantic? Contemporary? Classic? All this should be handled in the studio or via email at your consultation

Let me know about any birthmarks, scars or tattoos you may have. Do you want these left on final prints or removed?

Once the photo shoot begins, relax. Enjoy the intimacy and beauty of the moment. Revel in your glow. The most beautiful woman is the one about to become a mother.

Photographing baby bellies is just fun! There is no other way to say it without the words “it is a great way to spend an evening with a camera” coming out of my mouth. I have worked with Stacia & Kevin a few times over the years. We photographed their wedding a few years back and this year we actually photographed Stacia’s brother and his beautiful wife. At this point I feel like I know this family really well. When Stacia contacted me and told me she was pregnant I was really excited to be working with them again. One of the best things about being a photographer here in Scranton is seeing families grow over the years. Nothing makes me happier then seeing people come back to me to document important events in their life. I Can’t wait to see Stacia & Kevin come back in about a month so that I can get this little one in the studio for their newborn session.

One of the things we offer in the studio is the option to book your maternity and newborn session as an all in one package. For details about how you can do that with us head on over to our contact page and ask us about how you can get the discount applied to your time with us. We love being able to document both your maternity and newborn session and giving you memories that will last a lifetime.
