maternity & NEWBORN photography
Do you want soft and feminine maternity photos that make the most of beautiful natural light?
My sessions are not posed, but instead I give your lots of direction so that you will look and feel comfortable and beautiful. I focus on your connection with your baby and your partner/other children. These will be photos that you will look back on and smile. The session will be stress free, relaxed and not rushed. You can have your session outdoors or in your home. You will receive advice and tips for stress free styling on what to wear for you and everyone in the family so you look and feel stylish.
when should you have a maternity session?
The general recommendation is that you have your maternity photo shoot when you are between 32 to 36 weeks pregnant. For expecting mamas with twins (or more), schedule it for around 26 – 32 weeks as twins tend to arrive much earlier. Your belly will have a lovely full shape, but you won’t be too bloated and uncomfortable, as is often the case in the last few weeks.
sunset maternity sessions
Sunset sessions are always held in the last moments of golden sun soaked evenings. Lasting approx. 60 mins, they are shot one hour before sunset at outdoor location all the way up until the sun is gone. During these times the sun is low in the sky, producing a soft, diffused light that is much more flattering than the midday sun.
Please be aware that these sunset sessions fill early, make sure to book well in advance as they are generally booked for a weekend date. For more information and some FAQ.
lifestyle maternity sessions
These are shot in your home using natural light to capture those little moments that mean everything to you. My sessions are candid and relaxed, focusing on the connection of you and your partner and other children. Nothing is more important to me than maintaining an open heart and mind and capturing the unique personalities that make up your family. Sessions will typically be 60 minutes long and is usually scheduled for mornings.
Depending on the location you have chosen, the next step is to choose your clothes. This can be an exciting step as many women will know what ‘look’ they want for their photos. Whatever your style, choose clothing that is comfortable! For lots more clothing tips and inspiration, have a read of this blog post.
