Picture Perfect Practice | Meghann Maguire Photography

Well I'm back with picture perfect practice. I only just made it. Thanks to Jade for the accountability! While shooting this month I find that I naturally shoot with a lot of negative space and don't look out for different ways to put balance into my images. I think thats whats really great about doing little projects like this, it gets you thinking and trying other compositions while shooting. I get so stuck in doing the same things.

Jade my partner in crime has a wonderful blog post here explaining what we were doing this month.

The kids were trying on their costumes for book week when I noticed the cool shadow in the back ground. I played around so I good a nice balance. Balancing with the shadow.

Balancing with shadows. I think the top one works better.

Here is a good example of moving yourself just slightly to get more of a balance. There's no real balance going on in this picture. Take a look at the next image.

Just by moving myself to the left, I was able to get a balance with the mushrooms and from the top and bottom edges.

This was such a cute moment, my husband showing the kids how we used to record music. I was trying to balance with the two tapes in the same thirds.

A moment in motherhood captured - Launceston photographer

Im in my last stage of being a stay at home mother, with a child at home full time. I’m not sure if I’m ready to move onto the next season of life. I’ve been fighting with the idea to hang on just a little bit longer by having another baby. I know this is ridiculous and you have to stop and move on at some stage, And with three children already my hands are pretty full. 

I wish I had documented my pregnancies differently to the love heart hands, purple ribbon around belly, holding babies monogram over my belly. I’m pretty sure I even dressed up in a country type outfit. What the?? This really is not me at all. They don't remind me of anything of what it was like to be pregnant or how I felt.

I painted an interactive mural for my daughter. That mural is no longer there as we did some major renovations and had to destroy that wall. I wish I had documented my time preparing her room.

Motherhood moments with Trish - Launceston photographer

Motherhood is such a challenging and rewarding job. The moments go by so quickly, and they grow up faster than you can catch up. Here are some behind the scenes of motherhood moments with Trish. This session was so sweet from the start to finish.

This is what Trish said about having a session with me:

Just loved my session with Meghann, having it in my own home I felt no pressure, we just did our everyday day to day stuff while she moved around in the background capturing images of how we spend our time. Meghann has a friendly relaxed manner which makes you often unaware she is even there snapping away, but the imagines she captures are amazing and so natural. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting family photography done.

Moments in motherhood-Launceston photographer

Eek I'm so excited to share with you my first moments in motherhood session from my model call out. I have met some amazing mums through out this process and have heard some wonderful stories. We all have a different stories that lead to the same... we are all warrior mothers!!! This has become the theme that we are celebrating. You are beautiful, strong, smart and amazing. Sure the spit up on your shoulder is the latest scent, you're still trying to loose the baby weight, your hair is always messy and track pants is what you spend your weekends in. But you are still amazing and beautiful. You are a WARRIOR MOTHER. You are doing a spectacular job at raising those tiny humans.

I"m offering the opportunity to get your photos done in a more organic way. I want to preserve your motherhood story as it is now, in its truest form. This means we are not going to go stand in a field or the beach and pose for photos, but we are going to capture your EVERYDAY.

Sometimes you develop new friendships in the most unexpected ways. Tracey was a fan and found inspiration in what I was offering. She is now a friend who has put belief in myself in ways I can not explain right now. But it will give you the chills. We have started working on a project together called Warrior Mother. (I will be going into more detail of this very soon) I just love the feeling of this session. It makes me clucky and reminds me of how it felt to have a little baby staring back into my eyes, the pure love and joy. 

Ok this blog turned a little sloppy. Sorry, but not sorry ;)
