We think of maternity shootings as a way to create lovely memories of the special bond between mothers and babies, even before giving birth. The way they look at their belly, the softness of their touch, the smiles at the thought of what will be in few days or months... a life changing experience, that deserves to be remembered forever, even in its early stages.Read More
We planned an engagement session with Alessandra and Marco a long time before their wedding day, but in the meantime, a good news came: it would have been not only a couple session, but also a maternity photoshoot. We couldn't have been happier to shoot the first memories of a soon to be family of three!Read More
We have been to Martino's birthday party every year since he was two. Last summer he blew out five birthday candles.
We have witnessed first steps and first swims, we met new brothers and sisters (remember the lovely Teresa? ) and every year, all these kids never fail to teach us the real meaning of candid pictures. No poses, no rules: just life between 3-4-5 years old kids, completely careless of our presence and casual in front of the camera. The way it should be.
Thanks Sara, Andrea, Valentina and Paolo for this amazing opportunity.
Actually we don't love the name "maternity shooting" because you seem to lose something. That something is the feeling that, even if there's only two people and a baby bump, the people in front of you already are a real family. You can see that from Novella and Matteo's eyes, when they are looking at each other, and it's a shame you couldn't hear them talking of their soon-to-be daughter.
Beatrice was born exactly one week after this shot. We know that she will be so much loved, because she's born in a huge and amazing family - we know them so well, after one engagement session and two weddings - and we can't wait to meet her in person.
As a friend said recently, she's a lucky girl because her parents made her the greatest gift: they truly and deeply wanted her.
