These can last up to one to four hours and are very relaxed with plenty of time for a cup of tea. Please feel free to bring along any special baby toys or newborn shoes for the new baby, which you would like included in some of your portraits. Also any other items personal to you which you feel may act as complementary props for the shoot.
This is a special session so a little bit of pampering before your shoot always works wonders. Having your hair and nails done or even taking the time to have a relaxing bubble bath gives you a few hours beforehand to relax and feel amazing.
Every pregnancy is different, but as a rough guide you should book your photoshoot for somewhere between the 30th and 36th week of your pregnancy when your bump is clearly showing but not so close to your due date that standing for long periods may be uncomfortable or little one risks putting in a surprise appearance.
The important thing is that you need feel comfortable, but there are some items of clothing worth bearing in mind if you have any of these to hand.
Pre-pregnancy vest/tank tops, maternity camisoles, or fitted tops are worth bringing along as these can be pushed up above your belly, and the same goes for pre-pregnancy jeans. Shirts work well, either your own or your partners, as these can be unbuttoned over the belly. Empire style dresses look beautiful and show of the expectant mother’s belly nicely. It is also a good idea to bring along a set of nice underwear.
Whether you prefer to keep things discreet and show your pregnancy curves through a full length dress or you decide on something a little racier, I’ll arrange the poses and lighting to make sure that you look fantastic.
Maternity photo sessions can take part in my studio or at a pre-determined venue chosen prior to the shoot.
