Maternity portraits when it’s your second child aren’t really all so much just about your belly, it’s a bit of a guest appearance not really the star performer.   I always start your session with a little pre-ramble.  Some tips.  Some tricks.  I give direction as we go, as much as we can with an almost 2 year old in the mix.  In the end it really requires a lot of trust and a willingness to play along. That’s where the real magic happens.
