How often do you see a maternity shoot that makes you start crying with laughter? Well, this might be the one. Inspired by Alien, Todd and Nicole Cameron had the idea for the funniest (but also the scariest) maternity shoot I’ve ever seen. Photographer Lila Carter turned their idea into reality, and I bet that the resulting photos will make your day.
Alabama photographer Faith Grace was recently hired for a maternity photo shoot. But when her client discovered she is gay, she decided to fire her. As if it weren’t enough, Grace received pretty unpleasant text messages from the client, reading that “she doesn’t want her child to be influenced by people like her.”
A story I recently saw in one Facebook group is an example how NOT to treat your client, EVER. After a maternity shoot, photographer Desiree Genera publicly bashed on her client Katrina Ortiz. She recorded live Facebook videos, calling her out for her looks, among other things. And it all started with a simple message.
After the shoot, Desiree gave Katrina the date when she was going to deliver the images. When Katrina contacted her on that day, to make sure the photos would be ready, Desiree completely lost it. She first sent angry messages to Katrina. And then, she recorded a few live videos, thrashing Katrina for “rushing her” and calling her out for her “fat thighs, stretch marks, cellulite, and the wig.”
A photo of the most popular pop star on the planet has broken all the Instagram’s records. Beyoncé’s maternity photo reached 1.4 million likes half an hour after its publishing. At the moment I am writing this, it has 9.1 million likes and counting. This makes it the photo with the most likes on Instagram, ever. While photographers are doing whatever they can to reach Instagram likes and followers, it seems to be something else that brings the audience. The photo did bring tons of likes on one side, but on the other – it received an equal amount of criticism. But does the number of likes has anything to do with photography?
Simon Schaffrath, a photographer from Germany, and his wife decided they wanted to do some pictures for the announcement of their first baby!
They plan on naming him “Theodor” and I absolutely love and appreciate the creativity that Simon put into each and every photo! Painting the scenery on his wife’s body using non toxic materials and the style of photography Simon used really creates a scene that seems to lay out a recommended life plan for the little guy!
Enjoy the images after the bump… I mean jump. [Read More…]
Sometimes an idea, a thought, a life changing moment is so complex it seems impossible to put into words… well this is exactly that. I sit here as if in front of a blank canvas, unsure how to truly explain everything.
For the last 9 months I have struggled with my postpartum body. Unlike with my first pregnancy, in which I bounced right back and in fact liked my body more, with my second pregnancy I barely recognize this new body I’m living with. My abs are separated from my pelvic bone to my sternum, I have an umbilical hernia in need of repair, and I’m currently in physical therapy due to back problems stemming from my abs being weak. I have stretch marks. I have sciatic nerve pain in my bottom. All this came out of left field after my perfect first pregnancy.
