Monica & Diven | Maternity & Baby shoot

5th October 2015

Diven and Monica are a great example of the type of couples that know exactly what they want and are open to thinking outside the box. As a mum to be Monica contacted us to capture her bump and was open to ideas we suggested. For Obsqura, this was something new so we wanted to make sure we would do her and Diven justice by making the suggestions count and finding a great location for the shoot. 

We worked on a theme together and chose the appropriate outfit that would complement the colours and location. As an added touch we recommended she finish off the details with a flower head piece to really set with the theme and finally on a warm august evening we headed out to Ashridge estate and began our shoot. This shoot was a bit nerve racking as this was the first time we chose to shoot some of the images on film. Playing around with the classic medium for the past year had taught us a lot of its properties, colours and how differently film behaves in contrast to digital negatives. Suffice to say since working with film we came to a consensus that we will be incorporating it into many more in the future.

The second part of the story took place when their daughter was born. Again as diligent parents, Diven and Monica took all the necessary steps from gathering wicker baskets to headpieces to really spoil us with the many choices of accessories. The entire project has been incredible fun with a relaxed atmosphere and we cannot wait to add more mums-to-be and babies to our portfolio. 

We hope you enjoy this small snippet of images from both shoots and we look forward to hearing from more parents who would like images of their young ones captured.
