Many congratulations for this very exciting time!

What an exciting time this is and what a special moment to capture.

There is something incredibly special about growing bellies.  If it is a lifestyle, relaxed or where your partner and older siblings join in, these are special memories that should be captured.


Here are a few tips:

When should you book?
The best thing to do is to send me an email when you find out you are expecting, here we can discuss your preferences & due date.  I would recommend to schedule your session between 31 and 36 weeks. During this time, your baby bump has a lovely round shape. The transformation of your body is both beautiful and in the same time interesting to capture on photos.  After 36 weeks, most woman feel uncomfortable and can not move as easily.

Where is the best place?
Depending of the style of shoot, we can either do this in the comfort of your own home or at a location.  We will discuss all the options before the shoot to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed.

Remember that your needs are unique:
Chat to me about poses and locations you have in mind.  This will help me get an idea of who you are and what you have in mind, I will make plenty of suggestions and together we will decide on what works best for you, whilst ensuring that we get spectacular images.

Your Body Will Be Photographed:
During pregnancy your body will go through many changes and birthmarks or stretch marks are not uncommon.  I will do my best to pose you in such a way that they are less or not at all visible.  Please chat with me about parts that you are very sensitive or proud of, this will give me a clear idea what to focus on.  I am there to make you feel comfortable and to capture that magical time.

The more the merrier:
Don’t be afraid to include your partner and older siblings.  I will make time for the kids, your partner and individual shots.

This is something that is very dear to me.  You do not need to carry a child to know that you were destined to meet.  Please contact me and share your amazing story.  Then we can chat about how best to capture images of your unique family.

A mother’s love is whole no matter how many times it’s divided.
