This is where your most incredible journey will start! This is your own miracle.
The bond between you and the baby inside you is something that cannot be expressed in words until you actually experience it.
This time is not only about your growing bump, but also about the intimate relationship you have with your partner and your children.
I love capturing the tenderness of a mum looking down at her belly. When dad is there to caress mum's cheek hugging his most precious gift. When there is a toddler touching the belly with an inquisitive look. I simply love capturing this emotional time in a woman's life.
I don’t have many photos of my mum when she was pregnant with me. I wish I had more! But do I have one when she was decorating the Christmas tree ( I was born in January) with the help of my older brother. You get the sense that they weren't simply waiting for Santa, but for something bigger and better to arrive and just I love it!
I would suggest booking your maternity session around your 20th week. You will have your scan at that time and find out important information about your baby. You will have the time to know your photographer and to start planning your maternity session the way you prefer.
I will invite you to the studio for a chat and a cup of tea. All your questions will be answered and you can see the dresses available to you as well as the studio space where it all happens.
You will be then more comfortable the day of the maternity photography session
The best time to photograph your bump is anywhere between the 28th and 36th week. Your belly should be showing beautifully and hopefully, you shouldn’t be too tired yet. You can wait longer if you wish but babies are unpredictable and you might feel exhausted at the end of the session.
Your partner, children, and pets are all very welcome and highly recommended to join you in the session. They will help to make it much more memorable and personal.
