Luela Kaba Photography Finds Inspo from Emily Ratajkowski’s Recent Maternity Photoshoot

When it comes to maternity photography there’s two ways you can go:
natural light or studio light
Both are beautiful and both have different looks.
Studio lighting has more of that high fashion feel where natural light is more every day life style look.

Emily Ratajkowski is a perfect example of both of these shoots. Her first shoot was studio lighting so it had a more edgy feel where this recent shoot gives you an idea that she could be right in her house next to a window.

Dance & Photography

By Blog

Dance, the way to my soul. It started when I was 5. I fell in love it from the very beginning. Every beat just made me move. I continued dancing all the way through college. I loved every minute if it I just wish I would have gone further, but that takes me here to this blog. Today here at Luela Kaba Photography I got to work with a young dancer here in Phoenix. Her grandmother reached out and wanted to gift her some photos as a Valentine’s gift. I was so excited to work on this project. I started dreaming from the very moment she reached out. What poses, what outfits and lighting. I knew I wanted something delicate and beautiful. Found the most beautiful pieces for her. We worked together in the studio to achieve all the different looks and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The fabrics and lighting was everything I had imagined in my mind. Put dance and photography all in one and we are in for a long session of art making. It doesn’t get any better.

It’s a result of the ability to create life paired with the feeling of overwhelming love.

Inspiration from Gigi Hadid’s Pregnancy Shoot

By Blog

Why Luela Kaba is Obsessed with Gigi Hadid’s Maternity Photoshoot



“Growing an angel,” Gigi Hadid captioned a series of new portraits showing the expectant mother holding her baby bump. Shot by the model’s “angel friends” – photography duo Luigi and Iango, with the help of stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and make-up artist Erin Parsons – the pictures indeed have an ethereal feeling to them.

Wearing a floaty sheer mini dress, Hadid looks peaceful and reflective in the monochrome photos. “Cherishing this time,” she said in another post. “Appreciate all the love & well wishes ♡ will never forget creating these special images with my friends.”

We are deeply inspired by the Gigi Hadid Maternity Photoshoot here at team Luela Kaba Photography and want to shine the spotlight on the gorgeous super model and her photos.


“a few more from 7.26 🧚,” Hadid captioned the first gallery of pictures. Fashion photographers Luigi and Iango took the shots of her. She was styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and her makeup was done by Erin Parsons. The supermodel wears a sheer, flowy, green dress with a natural makeup look.

“Obviously I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more but like, I’m pregnant through a pandemic, like obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world,” Hadid started. “That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus, that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

“I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it’s been very cute and exciting and I’m trying to document it well because I’ve heard a lot of people say obviously make sure you don’t miss it,” she continued. “And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it, and I feel like right now I just want to experience it, and I write in my journal a lot, and I just don’t want to worry about waking up everyday during my pregnancy and like worry about having to like look cute or post something.” Gigi hadid shared on social media.

It’s been an interesting pregnancy journey for Hadid and Malik: Hadid admitted that the initial announcement wasn’t something they were a part of, saying, “Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support, so thank you.” Then on an Instagram Live, she responded to a fan wondering why she didn’t have a baby bump. “This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion. From the side it’s a different story!” (She later clarified that she’s not disguising her baby bump and that she’s “proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.”).

Hadid also hasn’t been shy about her love for Zayn Malik, posting a photo of the two just a few weeks ago with the caption “baby daddy :)”

We do not claim the rights to any of the Gigi Hadid Maternity Photos, we simply are very inspired by the photoshoot and hope to capture a similar feeling in our upcoming Luela Kaba Photoshoots.
