What to know about maternity photography and maternity photography tips
Photojournalist omaha has been photographing women who have given birth while pregnant and sharing her own experience with how photography can help women cope with the challenges of pregnancy.
The photojournalist has been documenting the challenges faced by mothers and mothers-to-be and sharing their stories with the public through her new book, Maternity Photography and Maternity Pregnancy.
The book is a collaboration between omaha and photographer ephemerist.
The pair has teamed up to create a series of portraits of women who were pregnant during the past year.
The project will include a series called The Mother and Baby (MAMB) series, which will look at women’s experiences of giving birth while in labor.
In this series, Omaha and ephemerism will be capturing their own experiences of maternity and birth and sharing them with the world through their photos.
While there are a number of photos in the book that Omaha has captured herself, the best images are the ones she captured with her husband, Jon, who is also a photographer.
Omaha says she got her inspiration for MAMB after she and Jon were pregnant and found themselves at a hotel in Denver where Omaha was interviewing photographers about their work.
The photos of her and Jon are a testament to the beauty of a baby in the world, she says.
In her book, Omahas photography focuses on the experiences of women during their pregnancies and after birth.
In a time when many of us are concerned with our appearance, Omahan has used the experience of her pregnancies to show the beauty and value of pregnancy and birth.
“It’s important to me that I photograph the mother and baby, not just the newborn,” she says in a video interview.
“The mothers-and-baby series really captures their beauty, and the beautiful moments they share.”
Maternity photography is still very new, but Omaha is looking to expand her book with additional images and more information on her personal experiences with the experience.
Omahans book is available now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound.
