I just want to start off by saying, this was a first for me. I was surprised to see an inquiry come in with a motorcycle maternity session theme and was intrigued. When we spoke about the session I was shown a few inspiration images. I was sure we could kick it up a notch and give it a little bit of attitude. We stuck with moto-inspired outfits for mom and dad, but also gave her a little bit of sparkly pizazz to match the bike.
As they are expecting a baby boy, and dad wanted mom to wear blue, we also did a few softer shots of mom. We kept the session in tones that perfectly matched the bike. I think they nailed it! Their original inspiration images were in more of a park type of setting, so we kept to that. But, we were also able to bring the bike onto a smaller road to give it a little more edge.
During calls, I often get asked a lot if the client has to figure out the location for their session. That responsibility is absolutely NOT on you, the client. Of course, if you have an amazing farm or access to an incredible location, that is always wonderful to know! However, most people have no idea where they should go for a shoot. This is totally normal, but that’s why you have me.
I scout locations regularly to see what works and what time of the day is best to shoot in. There is no need for you to worry at all about that.
I typically don’t post black and white versions of my portraits. However, some of the images from this motorcycle maternity session were begging for that dramatic contrast.
