Congratulations on the news of your pregnancy! Not only is this an exciting time but one that you will soon be looking back once that beautifully blooming bump is gone and you welcome your new baby. The special bond that you have already been forming with your baby is such a precious time and one that is becoming increasingly popular to photograph.
Maternity sessions are typically scheduled in at around 30 weeks. However, all pregnancies will be different, and you may wish to do it before or after this point, depending on how you are feeling and the visibility of your bump. Carolyn here in these photos is around 21 weeks. Her bump is small but visible and she has gone past the point of feeling sick but is yet to have a big heavy bump that is uncomfortable.
These sessions can be offered on location (weather dependent), or at my home studio in Tilehurst. I aim to create stunning portraits that you will look at, feel great about and treasure forever. I can provide the clothes for the shoot or you can select yourself, I love white and recommend soft light colours that will compliment the naturally light studio setting.
I always encourage partners and children to get involved in the photoshoot and have a few photos taken too. Even the dog is welcome to get involved as you can see below with Carolyn's spaniel Molly...
The sessions are scheduled for up to one hour and I will guide you with natural poses to ensure you look and feel comfortable.
If you would love some maternity portraits then please do get in touch, I would love to hear from you.
