So drawing a smiley face on the belly is a no no?
As a photographer, it is important to be caring and understanding of your subjects needs and feelings. Since you've never done this before, here are some common useful tips to help make things go smoothly.
- Keep things lite and humorous. It helps to jokingly use terms like "Pregnasourus Rex" or "Big as house".
- Comment often on her "color", or "glow" and of course her girth, and the size of her feet.
- Show interest in her pregnancy by pressing your ear to her belly, usually doing this without asking is best for the "pleasant surprise" factor. Ask her about morning sickness, and mucus plugs.
- Pack pickles, ice cream, and banana & peanut butter sandwiches to offer if she needs to stuff her face.
I'm sure the forum will have more experienced members that will offer some tips as well.
