As bump shoots go, this is well outside of the box!! Powder paint and rainbows – it’s incredibly new. We’re seeing it at weddings and engagement shoots, and of course trash the dress shoots, but this is the first time I’ve seen it on a maternity shoot! I love how happy mama-to-be Kat looks, how at ease and at peace she is, and how maternal. The setting is perfect; well you know how chilled Brighton is!
It was actually Kat’s dad who booked this with Anna Pumer Photography as a christmas present, and she said she would never have got the shoot herself. What a cool dad!!
“I loved the rainbow powder paint wedding photos Anna had done; it got me thinking that I’d love to do something with coloured fabric/rainbow lashes/coloured powders… An explosion of colour… The traditional ‘black and white belly hugging’ photos were not what I had in mind!”
Anna tells me that Kat said on the day that the bright colours were to represent her being strong. I love that visual representation of strength, that deeper meaning for the colours…
