I mean maternity shoot, but this really is much more than that.
Dan + Emily’s wedding is one of the reasons that we are where we are today. Their’s was the second wedding that we ever shot together. Though it was many moons ago we still remember it well. It was where we first discovered that a wedding film really was more than just us capturing the day and setting it to music. It was where we discovered not only how to tell stories, but why we tell the stories in the first place. They give some family and friends an opportunity to relive memories, and others the opportunity to experience them for the first time. Needless to say that Dan + Emily hold a pretty significant place in Driftwood’s history.
I will be completely honest with you here, I have never seen a maternity shoot that I liked. I’m sure that there are some really great ones, I’ve just never seen any that I didn’t find cheesy. When it came to working with Dan + Emily again however, it was an obvious choice.
Pregnancy is about so much more than just a belly. Its about the time spent in anticipation and excitement. It’s about the couple partaking in a joy that is completely their own, yet extends far beyond them. I wanted this shoot to be at least as much about Dan + Emily’s interactions as it was about the fact that her shape has changed.
So without further ado, I give you Dan + Emily’s maternity photos.
