Maternity Photo Shoot with Karlee

Karlee is a Central Coast model and was after some indoor maternity photographs so contacted me and we worked out a date that was suitable to both of us. I have access to a photographic studio in Woy Woy, Studio 35. This is a fully equipped studio with makeup area, toilet facilities and provides a comfortable place to shoot.

I hadn’t worked with Karlee before so prior to a shoot like this a level of trust needs to be developed. Kylie had searched out my work and felt comfortable with my style. This is such an important facet of capturing photographs such as these. Before the shoot Karlee and I had swapped ideas so that on the day of the shoot, the images that we captured were what we had both envisioned. This is an important part of any shoot and I like to have a mood board of work before the shoot commences so that that the shoot is as smooth as possible.

Being a professional model, Karlee was easy to work with and we captured some wonderful images, however, the most important thing was that there was communication before the shoot.

The shoot was relaxed and as it progressed, we were able to communicate other ideas. When photographing anyone, communication is the key and to capture the photographs you have in mind, open discussion prior to the shoot is very important.
