As a new Mum – to – be, capturing your family’s memories in photographs will often start with a maternity session. Pregnancy is one of the most magical times of your life and the beginning of your baby’s journey. I want to capture all the joy, promise, and hope of bringing life into the world, for you. Your body is changing while doing the most miraculous job of growing life. And I personally believe that a woman is never as beautiful as when she is carrying new life.
If you prefer a comfortable shoot at my studio, I have a vast array of backdrops that compliment the stunning maternity dresses and gowns I supply. If you prefer an outdoor shoot, I love reflecting the seasons and our connection to nature in maternity sessions. Your little one may not be here yet, but their existence and growth inside you is interrelated to the changing seasons of nature. You will be photographed in the bluebell woods, an autumn forest, a flower field – all depending on the season. Each year as the weather changes, you will reminisce through your images and be transported right back to this wonderful time during your pregnancy when you were just so excited to meet your new little one.
For these sessions, props are minimal, as we celebrate the true natural beauty of your bump and the shape of your body. I have a selection of stunning maternity gowns in a variety of colours and styles for you to choose from. You and your partner, if you would like to include them in (some of) the images, will have a 90 minute slot with me. There is ample time for two outfit changes. This gives us the opportunity to create a lovely varied gallery for you. The session fee to book a Maternity Photoshoot is £39. For this, you receive the session, as well as a beautiful 12 x 8 frame mounted print of your choice. Approximately 2 – 3 weeks after your session, I welcome you back into the studio for your ordering appointment, where you will view your stunning images and make a decision on which products and packages you’d like to purchase. Products and packages start at £199, with interest free payment plans available on all orders over £500.
To book a maternity photoshoot, I suggest contacting me when you are about half way through your pregnancy, so we can get a tentative date down in our diary for your photoshoot. We will shoot your maternity session when you are between 28 and 36 weeks pregnant. I look forward to discussing your colours choices of gowns and dresses with you, and to creating beautiful images for you.
