Maternity photography records an amazing time in yours and your babies’ lives, you carry your baby for 9 short months, so lets record this time for you to remember. This may be the start of your family, it may be a continuation of your family, it is most definitely a precious time and worthy of recording in stunning images for you to treasure.
A couple of weeks ago the gorgeous Laura came to see me in my home studio in Bognor Regis (West Sussex), Laura was amazingly due the day after her photoshoot!
Maternity photoshoots are best towards the end of your pregnancy (although I wouldn’t usually suggest quite so close to your due date as this one was as baby can sometimes make an appearance early!).
Neutral clothing usually works best, although I now have a selection of clothing that we can use as well (All images from this shoot used my clothing other than Laura’s own jeans and white t shirt).
Why not record your pregnancy with a gorgeous maternity photoshoot? These can be booked at any time during your pregnancy, and are best planned for around 3 or 4 weeks before your due date, allowing us to capture your bump at it’s best and not risk baby coming early and before we do the shoot.
Clothing can be provided for your photoshoot, and you are more than welcome to bring any clothing or props you would like included in your session as well. Partners and children are also welcome to come along to your photoshoot and are encouraged to be involved so we can record this time for the whole family.
Maternity photoshoots are £65 for an hour (either studio or natural outdoors), images are then purchased separately at your viewing session. Please contact us for more information about pricing or to book a photoshoot.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of having Debbie and her lovely family in the studio for a maternity shoot. We managed to get lots of photos of the whole family as well, including big brother. We had a bit of fun with my photobooth props (which also kept big brother amused during the shoot).
Please do feel free to contact me if you would like any more information about maternity photography. I work from my home studio which is based in Bognor Regis. Current prices for maternity photography start at £50 for an hour of either studio or natural outdoors style.
Last week I had the pleasure of taking some maternity photos of the gorgeous Coral and her husband Matt. This was a special shoot for me because they are one of my wedding couples from 2 years ago. Coral had a few ideas of what she wanted from her maternity shoot so we ran with those, and I added in a few as well. It is a lovely way of working, because the couple get the photos they want, but as the photographer I can also add them in some photos that they didn’t know they wanted, but that they will love.
Coral was 37 weeks pregnant for her shoot, which was perfect as her bump was absolutely blooming, but not so close to due date to risk baby coming before we could get the photos taken.
Even more exciting is that I get to do their newborn photos when baby is here as well, and I can not wait!
This was a standard studio shoot using both cream and black backgrounds, but I can also do natural outdoors shoots if that suits you better. For a maternity shoot it can sometimes help if you bring along any items you have bought for baby already, such as …….. Baby shoes, scan photos etc.
For more information and prices about all types of shoot please see my pricing page. Maternity shoots can either be standard studio shoots (1 hour) or natural outdoors shoots (from 1 hour).
