If you’re anything like me, you feel incredibly awkward in front of a camera. Even when my Instagram husband is taking my picture casually at home, I feel so stupid. What do I do with my arms? Should I look at you or down? Does my face look mean? Should I smile with teeth? Why is it suddenly so hard to remember to breathe when I’m smiling? Does this sound familiar at all?
When it came time to taking my maternity photos with Laurel + Prairie Storytelling Photography, I did some research, sought out advice, and relied on my photographer to help me, which is how I came up with some simple tips to follow as you prepare yourself or your family for a photo shoot.
