As motherhood approaches, you are nurturing new life. Your body is providing a protective place where your baby can develop; it’s a true wonder of nature. In a society where we’re constantly weighing up if we’re too curvy, too tall or short, there is a moment of realisation. None of that matters; your body is amazing!
That beautiful bump is one of many changes to your body. You may also notice that your skin is more radiant and your eyes sparkle. In addition, your smile comes more naturally as you think about the baby you are bringing into the world. This is why, when people ask ‘are maternity pictures worth it?’ the answer is a resounding yes!
As a mother of two, I treasured those 9-months when my babies were tucked up inside. The growing bump, hiccups and kicks were signs that all was well. It is the first step in a life-changing journey and a time to celebrate womanhood. What better way to document this moment than with a natural maternity photoshoot?
As a woman and a mother, I understand how important it is to make you feel relaxed, comfortable and in control of your body. My maternity photoshoot sessions are personalised to you. If you are not used to being the focus of attention, it can seem a little strange at first. I promise that you will soon feel at ease and happy with the natural images I’m taking.
I find the best maternity photographers are those that allow the session to evolve, tailoring it to what feels right in the moment. On that note, if you would like images with your partner and other children, this is no problem, they are an important part of this story too!
A maternity photo session can be booked at any stage of your pregnancy, however, it usually takes place in the month leading up to your due date. In these final weeks, your bump is in full bloom and you will be glowing.
This is also the time when you are most likely on maternity leave, so you are more rested and it is easier to find an ideal time to come to my photographic studio in Bledlow Ridge, Buckinghamshire. It’s just a short drive from High Wycombe, Thame and Aylesbury and you’ll be welcomed into a haven of quiet calm in The Chiltern Hills. If you prefer, we can head out and create a simple outdoor maternity photoshoot.
What you wear is up to you, what’s important is that you are comfortable and feel good. Some mothers to be love a loose, floaty dress, others something more fitted. During the maternity photoshoot, you may want to change outfit or reveal your bump in its natural glory. The choice will be yours, but consider this as an option when you select a maternity photography dress or top.
In the final stages of pregnancy, you deserve to feel special. At a time when putting your shoes on becomes a major undertaking, trying to take a good photo of yourself isn’t easy. You want more than a blurry reflection in the mirror to mark this precious time.
I offer the experience and the images you deserve. As a professional photographer, I have what it takes to capture you at your finest. To arrange your session, bookings can be made by contacting me from your 20-week scan. Details of my maternity photo package prices, and what’s covered, are shared on my website.
