We join Mark in the studio to observe as he guides you through how he shoots a full maternity session with our wonderful model Charlotte. Starting with the basics and then gradually building the session to finish with the creative twist that will really make your sessions stand out from the crowd.

In the final part of this session Mark we move onto the both the more personal images for the client, and the final creative sequence, that really makes a session stand out from the competition. Initially we see mark shoot some fun and funky images using some simple props brought by the client to represent her partner who is a DJ. Mark adds a little extra creativity to this sequence by vary the shutter to introduce movement and energy into the images. Mark then shoot some simple and sensitive images with some personal mementos that are important to the client, before finally brining the creative twist, introducing harder lights to shoot some fantastic shadow shots to really get away from the normal, everyday maternity style that a client might expect.
