Top 5 maternity photographers in Chennai

Are you pregnant and ready to do a photo-shoot of your baby bump? Who are the best maternity photographers in Chennai? This compilation gives you a list of some of the best pregnancy photographers in Chennai, with contact details and a look at what they offer.

Pregnancy, one of the most beautiful of experiences in a woman's life, was hitherto looked upon as something to conceal. Women weren't comfortable showing their big pregnant bellies. They walked around covering their growing belly behind layers of clothing – as if bringing life into the world was something to be ashamed of.

Modernisation has brought with it some welcome changes. Married couples have taken to celebrating their pregnancy with much aplomb. And why not, pregnancy is one of the most beautiful phases of their married life. It is a life-changing moment that takes them closer to parenthood, by the second.

It's a beautiful journey for the mother-to-be, as a new life takes form in her womb. And as the little life grows inside of her, the woman's body changes form, until it is evident to everyone who sees her that she is with a child. Maternity photographers capture and immortalise this magical phase through candid photographs. This trend has been a big hit among moms-to-be the world over. Yes, you can take a camera and click away, but if you want creativity in your pregnancy photographs then you would have to engage the services of a professional maternity photographer.

So, if you're a mommy-to-be, living in Chennai you can have your pick from among the best pregnancy photographers in the city. Here's presenting a list of some of the best maternity photographers in Chennai.

Mommy Shots by Amrita

Mommy Shots by Amrita makes it to the top of the list and for good reason. Amrita is unquestionably among the best when it comes to capturing the precious bulge that announces a baby is on its way.

Looking at the images gives the impression that the hand behind them, knew what had to be done. Every image is a beautiful story being told. I could sense a connect, and can well imagine how pleased the new parents-to-be would have been with the results.

Amrita focuses on maternity, newborn, baby, toddler and family photographs. She creates a vivid imagery through the photographs she clicks, putting life into her work. The images she clicks have a visual impact and would be definitely be treasured by the parents. Her photographs tell a story – as can be seen in the image below, which captures the tender emotion of love between the young soon-to-be-parents. Who wouldn't want a pic so lovely – it can take the pride of place in one's living room.

The photographer offers various packages that capture different stages of your baby's life.

Yellow Bird Photography

The snippets of information shared on the Yellow Bird Photography's official website indicate the professional approach of the people behind it. Located in Adyar, the studio is set on a 3000sqft property, sectioned into units for different genres of photography. Additionally, the studio offers a comfortable private area where clients can relax in-between shoots. Special facilities are available in the studio, to ensure babies and children have ample entertainment to keep them comfortable and relaxed, through the long photo-sessions.

The studio is managed by a team of skilled professionals, headed by Hari Narayan. They excel in new-born, infants and kids photography, and also undertake maternity photo-shoots.

The USP of this team of pregnancy photographers in Adyar is the keen involvement they show in their work. They meet the parents-to-be to know what they have in mind. They discuss relevant topics such as the subject, costumes, and location, presenting ideas and lending an ear to the demands of their clients.

The Yellow Bird Photography keep the images as real to life as possible. They work in a well-controlled studio environment as well as in open spaces, using natural light to create masterpieces.

They offer different packages –

What I like about the studio is the choice of packages available for the maternity photo-shoot sessions. You can, of course, explore their website to get comprehensive details about the different packages, but here is a gist of what they offer –

Harsha Sajnani Photography

I believe that there is a methodology, in training. When a skill is learned at a professional level one imbibes the finer details of the subject taught through theory and practical lessons. Harsha Sajnani featured here falls in this bracket of professional photographers. She is listed here because her photography skills were mastered in a classroom environment. To her credentials, Harsha has a Visual Communication degree with photography as specialization. A professional photography course gives her an edge because she doesn't just aim and shoot, she understands every little aspect of photography such as lighting, background, aperture, filters etc.

Harsha Sajnani set up her photo studio in 2015 after the birth of her daughter. Her bundle of joy acted as the catalyst, which is a good thing because it gave Chennai moms-to-be a talented photographer, who can memorialize their maternity days through her lovely clicks. Harsha believes that "photography is all about capturing life and its moments". She couldn't have put it better.

The young photographer enjoys capturing new-borns, toddlers, and families and of course the beautiful baby bumps of proud moms-to-be. Harsha's portfolio can be viewed on her Facebook page.

A new concept, in India, but one that has been accepted, especially by the young, married urban population.

Recently I came across another photographer who is giving pretty good photos one a competitive price range. He claims to be specialized baby, newborn and toddler photography. He has some moderate set of props, which is definitely better than a roadside newborn studio, but not as rich as Yellow bird. But comparing the price point, they are shooting at 5k with props!!
