Behind the Camera, How Does It Work?

 

The end result of a photoshoot only shows so much of what’s really going on while on set. When engaging in a maternity or motherhood photoshoot, there’s many aspects that we have to consider: comfort for our model, hair, makeup, and when doing a motherhood shoot specifically, comfort for the baby. Above all, we ensure a fun and safe experience for the model and child. Take a deeper look at the video below to see a bit of what life is like behind the camera!

As shown above, it’s all about testing the waters. With each client, we love to try something new by mixing stunning fabrics with matching backdrops to make for the perfect shot. When taking another peek at the video above, you can see how the model used two different looks; both contrasting in aesthetics, but equal in style. Along with that, there is time and dedication put into making sure that every client feels, unlike the rest. How else should one do that other than through an all-custom photoshoot?

In addition to keeping an eye out for the right fabrics, background, hair, and makeup looks, it’s important to note that Luela Kaba’s photography is entrusted with young toddlers and children of all ages, including newborns. Experience in motherhood has made photoshoots run smoother as we are prepped for any and all possible mix-ups or messes. Having experienced team members is beneficial to the all-around atmosphere on set. Creating a judge-free zone we intend to make sure all women feel completely comfortable in their own skin.

Finding Your Female Community

By Blog

Building Your Support Network

Finding a community of women who share your interests and hobbies can seem pretty difficult. However, thanks to social media and word of mouth, its possibilities are endless. This blog is going in a different direction. We’re going to show you a few ways you, a mother, can grow your network and find more mothers within your area. 

  1. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

First up is the obvious point, social media. What’s crazy about this one is just how useful it can be. While it’s super easy to get lost in Facebook Marketplace and cute viral videos, it’s beneficial to utilize social media for what it’s best known for: networking. Search keywords such as “Mothers” and “Phoenix” to find some groups in your community. After looking for a group that best represents you, reach out and initiate some striking conversation. Let us know what happens.

  1. Word of Mouth

The best advice yet: people know people. Word of mouth is a dated but useful way to spread some news. Moms can be some of the world’s most talented talkers. With that being said, let’s take advantage of that and make use of some of the opportunities we hear on the street. New events mean new people, and that’s a free ticket to knowing even more people.

These two methods are the backbone to finding your way around any community. Personally, we can tell you from experience that Luela Kaba Photography has made great use of both tactics. Ultimately, it’s a guaranteed guide to being the woman everyone knows around town. Isn’t that what everybody wants?

A Brief Guide to A Successful Pregnancy

By Blog

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.

Let’s Talk Gender Reveals

By Blog

Gender Reveals:
Are You a Minimalist or an Extremist?

Working with aspiring parents, we admire the opportunity to watch a family grow right before our eyes. Between Luela Kaba’s family, motherhood, and maternity photoshoots, it’s bittersweet to watch a client go on to live a beautiful life with their new family! However, Luela Kaba and her creative team are one big family; and our clients are our extended family. With that being said, revealing the gender of a bun in the oven is one of the biggest moments of soon-to-be parents! So here are some ideas as far as how creative you can get.

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

When it comes to gender reveals, it can go two ways, (1) a minimal gathering with close family or (2) a grand kickoff with the whole crew! But in this case, let’s start with the first.

Minimal, Small, Meaningful:

For a small gathering with family only 10 people are really necessary. This makes room for easy flowing conversation, lots of photo opportunities, and isn’t too difficult to cater to. You could reveal the gender by doing any of the following:

  • Cut a cake! The filling of the center would be the color designated to each gender.
  • Pop a balloon! There could be confetti with the designated color within it.
  • Set a smoke bomb! Have a friend who has previous knowledge of the gender decorate the smoke bomb so that there are no spoilers.

Grand, Plentiful, Dramatic:

Having a huge party for this kind of announcement seems like loads of fun! So many loved ones would be there to celebrate, mingle, and welcome your parenthood with open arms. Lots of candids would be taken and that would be the perfect opportunity to tell your little one “That’s your third cousin! That’s your fifth auntie!” and so so so much more. The atmosphere would be through the roof and as parents-to-be, you would be surrounded by endless support and love. You could reveal the gender by doing any of the following:

  • Fireworks! As the sun goes down, this would be a perfect opportunity to see some beautiful visuals while finding out the gender of your baby.
  • Team games! Have the guests split up into teams and engage in an activity that would reveal the gender of the baby.
  • Pinata! Use a huge pinata and have that release party confetti in the color designated to each color.

Hopefully, this helped open up a whole new world. If not for the memories, do it for the amazing photography that could come from it! Don’t forget to book Luela Kaba for maternity, motherhood, family, or boudoir photography.

By Blog

How to Prepare for a Maternity Shoot

As a maternity, motherhood, family, and boudoir photographer, it’s incredibly common that our clients feel the need to go overboard with preparation the day before. While there is some that you can do, there’s no reason for anyone to lose sleep over it! So, fear no more, the following words will teach you how to properly prepare for a maternity photoshoot.

luela photography maternity photoshoot phoenix arizona

For starters, it’s important that you are in the right state of mind. Don’t forget that this is a form of self-care and it is imperative that you realize that we are doing this for you! It’s alright to get cold feet, but I assure you that our team is welcoming and so excited to get glam with you! Play some music and get yourself in the mood, after all, this is a day meant for pampering. Once you’ve gotten yourself hyped up and ready to go, go ahead and get your nails done. Make sure any tiny imperfections that you’d want out of sight, are handled! This includes manicures, pedicures, and unwanted body hair. We want you feeling pristine!

Next up, pack your bags! Make sure you have anything and everything you might need, especially because these are long sessions, so you want to be set. Bring some comfy maternity clothes and make sure you’ve brought any vitamins, or medication you might need so there’s no personal stress. If you want, bring some personal support with you. If our team isn’t enough of a hype team, then you can bring your partner: a built-in DIY hype team. No matter what, don’t forget to remember your worth, and then add tax. 😉

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.
