In early January, I had the 31-week pregnant Shirley in front of my lens. It turned out to be a really fun pregnancy shoot, which took place in a forest & park in Londerzeel. Shirley enjoyed the photo shoot, she loved getting to wear the different dresses & paying extra attention to her baby belly.

That Shirley enjoyed her pregnancy to the fullest is certain. She got all peaceful from looking at her belly & seeing her baby moving in her belly. Like any pregnant woman, Shirley obviously had a craving, hers was bell pepper chips. She also regularly went to lunch and breakfast with friends, but could also enjoy being home quietly and enjoying our new home.

When I ask Shirley if she was stressed before the shoot, she says the following: “Yes in advance a little bit. Why? Because I wanted to do well and had never been in front of a lens before, yet I wanted very nice pictures and was afraid I would never look good on them. I was also a little stressed because I didn’t know Joke and didn’t want to waste her time. She did put me at ease from the beginning and gave me tips!”

When I ask Shirley about tips for future moms who are also planning a shoot, she says the following: “Above all, don’t stress. I was a little scared beforehand because I had never been in front of a camera before but joke puts you completely at ease. What you need to do above all is to ENJOY and look forward to the amazing end result.”

Shirley has since given birth to a beautiful daughter Marie-Lou. Congratulations!

I thoroughly enjoyed the maternity shoot & of course am happy to share some of the results!

Thanks Joke for the fun shoot ! You really made me feel at ease even though I thought beforehand that this would have felt very uncomfortable. I’m sure a nice result will come out of it. You have beautiful dresses and very nice ideas for taking photos!

I also really enjoy making a beautiful video of each photo shoot.
