Post-Pregnancy Body Confidence

By Blog

Accepting the Beauty of Your New Body

 

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Somehow, women are capable of growing a whole new human being and manage to keep it safe at the same time. We, women, celebrate the arrival of a new life to a family and we praise the opportunity to undergo such a journey. Why is it then, that we cherish and admire all aspects of welcoming a child besides the female body. 

Almost every mother has experienced a change in body shape or complexion since pregnancy. Because of this, it’s become a standard topic of conversation to depreciate oneself of their worthiness, and solely based on a post-pregnancy body. Luela Kaba and her team utilize maternity and motherhood photography to give women a chance to feel completely empowered. There’s a certain strength that comes from women and women only where they have to muster the ability to push a whole person from their bodies. With that being said, it’s a talent that cannot go unnoticed.

Book a maternity or motherhood photoshoot today and feel the beauty all women should be praised for.

A Brief Guide to A Successful Pregnancy

Relaxation & Self Care During Pregnancy

 

Taking care of yourself during pregnancy is the best way a woman can start her journey through motherhood. Self-care during maternity increases the chance of a healthy baby, a healthy home, and even a healthy relationship with your significant other. This can be done through daily check-ins or a set-in-stone routine. Nonetheless, maternity care is essential throughout the nine months of pregnancy.

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

When it comes to self-care, your partner or spouse has a huge role in a mother’s wellbeing. Keeping up with vitamins, meals, medications, exercise, cravings and much more may seem like a lot but with proper planning and organization, it will soon become second nature. Once you get used to the routines and the cravings, make sure you’re ready for any surprises. As we all know, pregnancy is the reasoning behind lots of unplanned late-night trips to the convenience store; a task that tends to fall on a very non-pregnant partner. But the trips are made anyways; why, because we care.

All of this aside, it’s important to remember that a mother and their partner are a team. While each could do their job on their own, it’s much better together. While this may not always be the case, a woman should never have to feel alone in pregnancy. So while the world is turning ridiculously fast and your belly is growing at an ungodly rate, know that everything will turn out just as it should. While you’re at it, we think it’s a stellar idea to book a maternity photoshoot with Luela Kaba. You never know, it might just lift your spirits.

Rydel Lynch On Her Navigation Through Motherhood

By Blog

Rydel Lynch Has Some Advice For Mothers… And We’re Listening!

Singer and recently proclaimed mother, Rydel Lynch, has kept us all on the tip of our toes as she brought us along her journey through pregnancy. Finally, she’s shown us her adorable baby boy! Not only has motherhood been a new concept for the star but she’s managed to learn a thing or two that could definitely help other new moms – and soon-to-be mom’s as well! Word on the street is that if you give your newborn a breastfeeding schedule from the get-go, there will be much less mid-day snacking from the baby as well as a decent decrease in sleepless nights. This immediate schedule teaches the baby’s body when to be hungry rather than feeding on breast milk whenever they want to. This concept seems revolutionary, other moms should test this out and tell us what response they get! Better yet, if you’ve used this tactic on your child when they were young, let us know so we can get another word for it. Implementing this at such a young age seems genius and well-thought-out. This encourages structure at such a young and impressionable age, and that’s what matters most. Rydel continues to share her insight on motherhood and how she’s finding her way about it on her various social media: Instagram, Tiktok, etc. You can also follow this beautiful new family through her four brothers, mother, father, and extended cousins.

Word of Mouth and Why It’s So Important

Any business owner knows the importance of a close-net community. That’s why we like to create a close connection with our customers ensuring that they feel supported and pleasant throughout their experience with Luela Kaba and her creative team. Without the continuous reviews, shared experiences, and recommendations, a business is as good as gone. Products may be great, and a skillset maybe amazing, but what is it without an audience to showcase it all to?

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

In maternity, motherhood, family, or boudoir photography, it’s easy to drown in the sea of photographers, especially in such a populated area like Scottsdale or Los Angeles. That’s why we rely on our customers and their genuine excitement! To truly get a good review to our name, we have to perfect our customer service. Perfect it to the point where they’d willingly go out of their way to rave out of excitement how much fun they had as Luela Kaba’s model. How do we do it? We make you feel special. Out of all the clients we’ve had, each one can easily remember the day they had a maternity, motherhood, family, or boudoir photoshoot with Luela Kaba. It took up hours, meaning they had to clear a whole day’s worth of scheduling so they can focus on themselves. Do you know what most people call that? Self-care.

That’s the word. Self-care. It’s the reason why anyone spends too much money buying clothes, or eats some yummy, but slightly unhealthy, food. You do these things to treat yourself. And hopping along happily is Luela Kaba’s maternity, motherhood, family, or boudoir photo shoot. This form of self-care has been recommended by many upcoming mothers and even some competing companies. Don’t believe me? See for yourself at Luela Kaba’s praise page!

Fabrics, Backgrounds, and Tones:

Why does it Matter?

When it comes to photography, Luela Kaba keeps a keen eye on what a perfect portrait must look like. Finding and keeping harmony between fabrics, backgrounds, and tones is the secret to pleasing the viewer. Keeping a clear, flowing connection throughout the photo makes for a complete and satisfying photo, leaving the photographer, the model, and anyone who sees it on a very happy note. Throughout a maternity photoshoot, it’s important to establish a continuous aesthetic throughout the session. This is when we acknowledge and implement the preferred style of the model, or in most cases, the mother. While encompassing effortless beauty, maternity photographer Luela Kaba praises the method of communication. We choose our models’ fabrics, backgrounds, and tones based on what they’ve expressed to us and what vibe we pick up.

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

Based on our analysis and rundown with our model, we then come to a conclusion about which types of fabrics we will use, what colors they will be. All of this and more begs us to ask the question “What do we want the audience to feel?”. Depending on the answer, we pick between flowy fabrics or still fabrics and covering fabrics or revealing fabrics. Once we’ve gotten there, next up is the color. What tone do we want to set. Are we looking for a dark and mysterious tone? Let’s put our model in dark eyeshadow, dark lipstick, and maroon flowy fabrics.  Looking for a light and airy tone? Let’s put our model in a natural look, paired with nude lipstick and white minimal fabrics. 

Why does it matter? Our clients satisfaction is very important to us. Covering maternity photoshoots, motherhood photoshoots, family photoshoots and boudoir photoshoots, it’s important to know the wants and needs of every client, and down to a personal level too. Book Luela Kaba for your next session, and let us get your custom fabrics, backgrounds, and tones.

Analyzing Our Favorite Shoots

By Blog

Our Fav Shoots and How We Do Them

Growing up, we were all told how unique each of us are. How each and every person is different from anyone else, bringing different qualities and personalities to the table. When it comes to maternity photography, there is a different perspective that goes with each and every client. Creating custom fabrics, backdrops, and tones for each shoot, it’s important to be able to tailor to the wants and needs of the mother. In today’s blog, we will be analyzing the ins and outs of each client and how we satisfy their wants.

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

In maternity photography, and specifically this one, it’s vital to pay attention to the 3 most important aspects: fabrics, tone, and the mother.

  • Fabrics. As you can see here, after some meddling, we decided to settle with some semi- bright tones to counter our client’s rich complexion. This complemented the subject of the photo and brings the eye to a focal point. Matching the fabrics with a headwrap brings together the whole photo as well as captures the mother as the centerpiece. This makes for a beautiful full-circle moment.
  • Tone. The tone, or mood, of a photo is especially evident based on the colors of the fabrics as well as the backdrop. Using warm colors, we create a welcoming setting, a feeling that newborns all tend to call upon when first feeling the touch of their mother. Whilst creating the perfect combination of the two, it’s imperative to make sure they don’t swallow the light for the subject. 
  • Our beautiful mother. In the photos above, we wanted to capture the mother’s grace and poise. We set the fabrics to be draping elegantly behind her, making for a regal aesthetic. We take the pure beauty standing in front of us and simply tailor the accessories to fit her. Showing off a stunning side profile, we take all of the best angles that perfectly highlight the perfections of each and every client of ours. These same aspects go with any other maternity, motherhood, family, or boudoir photo shoot.

5 Ways To Feel Your Best During Your Maternity Session

As a little gift to all of our moms, whether you’ve experienced a photoshoot with us or not. Here’s some advice on how to feel your best when taking your maternity photos, from yours truly. 

  1. Pre-shoot Prep!

    When it comes to any photo shoot it’s important for the model to be prepared and thus feeling her best. Make sure you’ve taken any necessary steps. If preferred, some might include a manicure and/or pedicure, a trip to the hair salon, and even a body hair removal! Remember, these are all suggestions, and all mothers must do what they feel is necessary to prepare themselves for their photoshoot.

  2. Communication!

    It is super important for a model to feel understood during their photoshoot. The best way to ensure this is through full transparency and communication. If there’s something you want to be changed, let us know! If you want more of something else, tell us! Maternity photoshoots are meant to be a result of teamwork, and (just like parenting) it takes patience! 🙂

  3. Come in comfortable clothing!

    Being in glam isn’t easy. So it’s completely okay to come in comfortable clothes and let us do the rest. A photoshoot with Luela Kaba makes for a comfortable and enjoyable experience, so once you’re on set, you’re in our hands. Relax!

  4. Don’t forget to set time aside

    A photoshoot session with Luela Kaba can take up to four hours, so make sure you don’t have a jam-packed day. We want to make sure everyone is in a positive mood so everything can run smoothly.

  5. Be positive and be confident!

    Remember to take it easy on yourself. When it comes to self-love we have to embrace our imperfections and remind ourselves why we are doing this. When you look back at these photos, all you’re going to see pure happiness and overwhelming love and excitement, so enjoy it!
