Hard to believe Amherst Media hasn't published a pregnancy photography book before now, but Jennifer George made it worth the wait for it. I saw Jennifer speak in San Diego in 2004 and was inspired by her instantly. She's a professional on the exterior, but her heart seeps from her images and into her art. In addition to the simple beauty in the cover photo, the images inside the book represent far more of the digital artistry that I remember from her program in SD, and she shares the how-to's for their creation both during the session and in the post production. Any photographer who attends seminars and workshops should so appreciate the value and content of the knowledge in this book for the amazon price (and she's taken all the notes for you!) Outstanding...

I really learned alot from this book. I enjoyed it from start to finish.Their is alot of helpful ideas about posing and making sure the client is comfortable all at the same time. Chapter 8 was really interesting when showing you how to be creative to make your finished product. I really loved this book!

I continue to gain insight from this book. The contemplative, tranquil images inspire creativity, as one gains insight to the photographer's perspective and expertise. Her frankness in sharing technical skills both behind the camera and in her use of Photo-shop and marketing is extremely helpful to any professional or aspiring photographer. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in taking your photography to the next level or just searching for inspiration.

While the tips contained in this book might be helpful for some, I found the style of photography used for all the examples really off-putting. Everything is very similar - soft focus, lots of haze, lots of loose fabric, lots of lying-down poses. The book could really benefit from a little bit of diversity, as this style of maternity photography is definitely not what many women want. The mothers I've worked with have wanted more natural, family-style photography, while the examples in this book border on the "such a private moment the viewer feels uncomfortable intruding"-type. The pictures of newborns superimposed over the women's bellies were just WEIRD. Perhaps this is a gimmick that sells well for the author, but I found it super-creepy and definitely not something I would want to share with friends and family. I found this title really disappointing and will be looking for other guides to more natural, fun, family-oriented pregnancy photography.

I thought the book will deal with photography itself, and how to take pictures and bring more good tips on studio photography , but that only a small portion of the book. The book deals mostly in marketing, it's nice but not what I was looking for

Reviews were mixed, but I was looking for new ideas. It took me about five minutes to run through and realize it wasn't what I was looking for.

I gave it two stars as a review from a professional photographer's viewpoint. I would assume that the higher reviews are from those just beginning - so base whether you purchase this book on that. If a beginning photographer, then worth purchasing. If already a pro or semi-pro photographer, you're better off skipping this one and perusing the net to stimulate your own ideas.

I'm experienced in photography but moving more into maternity photography. I was hoping this book would be more focused on maternity photography rather than photography itself. I ended up skipping through most of the book as I don't need to relearn the rule of thirds. Maybe if those sections were more focused on maternity photography then it would have been useful. Was lookin for more information in germs of clothing choice, poses, location and lighting of maternity not general lighting techniques. Probably a better book for those just beginning photography.

I saw Jennifer George at Tri Community a few months ago. What an inspiration she is. A true artist encouraging others how to dig a little deeper and explore, to reach and do something new...to try something different. This book was on my list in my Amazon cart to buy. I bought it from Jennifer that night, truly blessed and amazed at "timing"...as I was shooting my 1st maternity session a few days later! As I have gone through this book, I love the simplicity, the specifics and detail. Again, I am very inspired by the artistry and stories or HOW and WHY...the realness of Jennifer to share transparently what is taking place and how she or the client may have felt or the emotion being manifested and most importantly the relationship developing. Respecting this special time in a woman's life and getting to be a part of it are a gift. I have been using this book and referencing it for many reasons. It is very helpful to me with the sketches of how the lighting was set up or where natural lighting was coming from, what to look for ect. Thank you AMHERST ...we need MORE Jennifer George books, she is a great teacher and her writing is easy to follow. Jennifer, CONGRATULATIONS on a WINNER of a BOOK. I will definately be recommending it to fellow photographers.
Blessings to you!
