Having a baby is one of the most incredible times of your life. Using a professional photographer for your maternity shots is a great way to capture that time. It’s so close to your child’s birth, you can feel its every move. It’s nearly like holding your baby in your own hands. Technically it will be your first family photograph!
Every pregnancy needs and deserves the same amount of attention. A typical pregnancy shoot will last around two hours (with as many breaks for you as the baby dictates!). We are pretty loose on timings to make sure everybody stays relaxed.
The recommended time to book a maternity portrait session is about 4-6 weeks before your due date. This will give a decent sized “bump” to show, but it won’t be too big so you will feel fairly comfortable. If you book a maternity session too close to due the date we might end up with newborn session at the same time!
Don’t worry about stretch marks, most women have them when pregnant; everything is captured digitally and these can be airbrushed out so you’ll have a beautiful maternity photo to show off!
A maternity session costs £99, which includes a second newborn session (taken at your home within 4 weeks of birth), editing of the images, two viewing consultations at your home and two free 10″x8″ mounted prints. Additional photos and / or a photo-disk will be at extra cost dependent upon your requirements.
