IS IT SAFE TO HAVE A MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOT – DELHI NCR MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION
When a woman gets pregnant, it’s a path of rebirth of woman herself. And the best way to remember that phase of life is to capture the memories through lens. But when planning for a maternity photo shoot a lot of questions and concern goes through the mind. And the most important one is it safe to have Pregnancy Photo Session done?
I am a Professional maternity\pregnancy photographer and doing maternity photo session for last 5 years. My home studio is in Gurgaon and I cover pregnancy photo shoot clients from Delhi Gurgaon Noida and other NCR region. In this article I will answer this question to ease out your concern.
In a one liner answer – YES it is absolutely safe to get a photo session done during pregnancy.
In our social system we have many myths and stigmas around pregnancy and we try to avoid everything which might have a slightest remote chance of hurting the baby. And living in India with easy access to so many elders J , giving free advice creates a hysteria around maternity photo shoot. Photo session during pregnancy time does not create any harm to the baby or mom. Photography technology does not emit any rays or waves; it actually captures the light reflecting from the subject.
In order to rule out the myth, its good to know that how does a camera work. You can go through this page by Dummies or Gadget Review on “How Does a Digital Camera Work”. On these links they have explained in very simplified manner about the functioning of a Digital Camera. In brief, a camera (Digital or Old film style) simply captures the light emitting from the scene on a light sensitive screen (digital or film). So when shutter is closed, no light is entering to the camera but when you open the shutter by click of a button, it captures the light coming from the scene and put it on a light sensitive screen and creates the image out of it. So it is not emitting any rays of waves for any of its functioning so there is no way a photo session can creates any harm to pregnancy.
So ignore all these myths about pregnancy photography and come over to my studio to capture life time memories.
