CELEBRATE YOUR JOURNEY!

Congratulations you're pregnant! Why not celebrate your growing baby with a maternity portrait session? It is a great way to capture your journey into motherhood and is an intimate memento for the future. Carrying a life is an incredibly positive and harmonising experience, and a maternity portrait session will remind you of your journey and of the changing curves of the body during this special time.


YOU WANT A RECORD OF YOUR PREGNANCY BUT MAYBE YOU DON"T FEEL AMAZING...

We totally understand! Your body has changed and taken on a new little life inside. Even though this is a miraculous time you don't always feel amazing and glowing... This is where we can help you - we specialise in making mums-to-be bloom in front of the camera, looking and feeling your best.

Maternity photos are an incredible record of your child growing inside, supported and nurtured by you. Whether this is your first or fourth child each pregnancy is unique and we would love to capture that for you.

We understand that the growth and newness in your body might make you want to shy away from the camera. But our expertise in posing and lighting will capture images of this special time that you can treasure and show your future child how you were there for them from the beginning.

We hope that reassures you a little? If you're ready we can get you booked in, or drop us a note and we can chat more...


YOUR EXPERIENCE IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS


1. BOOKING

Once you have booked your session we'll have a chat to discuss the portrait styles you would like, how best to prepare and how you may want to display your final artwork. This can be done over the phone, via email or in person - whichever you prefer.


2. PORTRAIT SESSION

Your session will be tailored to you and together we'll decide on your outfits, colours and styles. We'll ensure your session is fun and exciting but relaxed and comfortable too. With our expert posing and lighting skills we will create a beautiful series of portraits which you can treasure forever.


3. VIEWING & ORDERING

You will be invited back to the studio typically one week after your session to enjoy a beautiful presentation of your stunning portraits on our large screen.

It's a delightful and relaxed ordering session - what you fall in love with and choose to purchase is entirely up to you.


YOUR QUESTIONS

  • How pregnant should I be?

    We recommend scheduling your session for between 30-34 weeks but this can obviously be different based on your circumstances.

    The aim is to capture you while you have a beautiful shaped bump but aren't feeling too tired.

  • Can my partner/child join in?

    Of course! It's a special time for your whole family so they are very welcome to join in.

  • How should I prepare?

    Some ladies like to go for a full makeover and hair styling while others like to keep it natural.

    Remember your nails will be in your portraits too, so polished or bare are both fine but try to ensure they are clean and tidy.

    Finally, hydrate as much as you can as this will help your skin look amazing.

  • What should I wear?

    We have a variety of dresses, shawls and hats available for you as well as lots of different colour sheer materials and flowers.

    You are very welcome to bring your own selection of clothing - remember that close fitting will show off your bump best.

    Please bring a nicely fitted set of underwear with you and, if you're considering implied nude shots, then a pair of nude knickers is very helpful.

    Typical props to bring along are baby shoes and a scan photo, but you can bring anything you would like to make the session personal to you.

  • Do I have to get naked?

    It's entirely your choice! You don't need to decide until you're in your session and there's no pressure either way. If you do choose to have nude or implied nude portraits we maintain your privacy and dignity at all times. We have a changing room and clean fresh robes available for you to use.

    We've never had a lady regret doing nudes but we have had several regret not doing them - just something to consider...

    Nothing is shared online without your permission - they are your portraits and your privacy is guaranteed.

  • Can you photoshop me?

    Yes... but with the posing skills we'll teach you and the lighting techniques we'll use we won't really need to!

    If you have any scars, tattoos, stretchmarks etc that you would like us to remove just let us know. Though we think they are beautiful and are a part of your story so, unless you request it, they will be left in. You've earned your tiger stripes and it's ok to be proud of them!

  • How much does a session cost?

    A £95 non-refundable booking fee is required to secure your session, however this is then deducted from anything you purchase.

    ~ your portrait session with personalised styling

    ~ your private viewing 7- 10 days later in the studio
