‘A picture speaks a thousand words’ – Pregnancy is intimate, beautiful and amazing time for many expecting parents. Weather it is Baby Nr. 1 or Baby Nr. 5. The awesome wonder of the experience is just the same, and it only often happens less than a hand-full of times in a woman’s life. As a skilled maternity photographer, I aim to draw out the beauty and femininity of pregnancy, no matter how you are feeling, to make your experience intimate and beautiful by using fabric and movement to enhance the standard photos which are also included during your session.
You are beautiful, embrace the incredibly special time as your body changes and grows another human inside you. This is truly a miracle of life and we would love to capture a special moment in this journey with you. There’s no need to worry about your belly, the great thing is that pregnancy tends to hide those bits which you may be more conscious of, this is a time to flaunt your belly and be proud about this maternal state. This session is a wonderful time to capture siblings and the wonderful family unit before baby arrives, your children will thank you for it, as will the new arrival once he/she arrives.
Whether you decide to gift yourself this amazing session or if you plan to include Dad and siblings, it is a fun session with lots of laughs. Even the kids will love it. I guarantee creative ideas and suitable poses that are just right for you. Apart from the session being a lot of fun, this is a gorgeous time to bond with your partner and/or children.
Dad’s tend to bond after the birth, but during this session, they will no doubt feel included and celebrated before they welcome baby into the world. 9 months is a blink of an eye during the lifetime of parenting, and this moment is truly one to celebrated and remembered for years to come.
We recommend booking your maternity session between 32 weeks and 35 weeks. You are more than welcome to book your session before or after this time. You know your body better than anyone else so if you see that you are carrying heavier or lighter earlier on in your pregnancy or different to previous pregnancies, you are welcome to book according to how you feel.
Maternity sessions predominantly take place in the studio using studio lighting equipment. I tend to use a black backdrop and a single studio light which enables me to create flattering and dynamic lighting to enhance your beautiful belly. I cannot create the same on location.
I also offer an ‘On-Location’ option as well either at home or a location of your choice. We will be able to discuss these options at the booking stage. I schedule these shoots either very early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the light is much softer and far more flattering. By booking a session inside and at home, you are limiting the lighting source and conditions and may require lighting equipment to create adequate light in order to produce the quality of images that I deliver to my clients. But we can explore that more at the booking stage.
