Okay so I have booked three weddings for the month of September/November...Which will also be my 7th and 8th of pregnancy. The clients have booked full day packages (sun up to sun down)...What I am worried about is this: my past two pregnancies, I had what my doctor called "pitting edema" (I am pretty sure I spelled that wrong) which is when your legs and feet (sometimes other limbs) swell so big that any pressure on the skin will make an indent that stays for a few minutes. I will be on my feet ALL day. My question is this...Should I mention anything to the brides that I may need to sit down due to the problem? How do I say it without causing them to worry about getting their pictures? I don't want to worry them or make anyone think I will be the handicaped photographer on their wedding day! Would it bother you as a bride? Or would you be understanding? Personally, I would be okay with it. But I do know people that would just rather try to change photographers...
I wouldn;t say anything unless it happens. Every pregnancy is diff. unless you know this will happen. I would just be open wit them about it. Let them know that their photos will not be compromised you will still get every special shot. If they feel at that time they would rather go with a diff. photographer wish them luck i know it's hard to book a good photographer with such short notice I know I would rather go with the excellent pregnant one who may have to sit down from time to time then settle for a mediocre one who is available. Do you have anyone else that takes photos with you? an assistant or whatever? That would help. Can you take picture while sitting down?
