Pregnancy photography session - what to expect
A pregnant woman’s body is one of the most captivating works of art imaginable. Knowing that below the surface of her feminine curves and radiating glow, grows a life that will bring such joy, is nothing short of miraculous.
Our team of women photographers use maternal instinct and a creative eye to capture this precious stage of life on camera, so you and your family can look back on your journey and appreciate this moment in all its natural beauty.
We recommend visiting the studio between 32-36 weeks, a perfect time for pregnancy portraiture. You are a gorgeous shape and feeling fully of energy. After this time, it may become uncomfortable to stand for the time, you feel more tired and your baby may have decided to arrive earlier!
Most women prefer the Studio setting for optimal privacy, controlled lighting and temperature control. Studio lighting can sculpt your beautiful shape to perfection and there’s no need to worry about the weather. Our Outdoor Studio is weather dependant but allows for a more natural backdrop which you may prefer if after a more casual look.
You can enjoy the session on your own, wearing one of our maternity gowns, your own clothing, draped with fabric or artistically nude. Alternatively or in addition to, you can include other members of your family, such as your partner and other children, we have even photographed with pets!
You will never regret capturing this most special time in your life. Having a photography session while you’re pregnant creates once in a lifetime memories for that child. The photographs will trigger memories, feelings, emotions and help you remember this fleeting time more vividly. When your children are older, they will be delighted to see the photos of their pregnant mother whilst they were growing inside of you!
What else to consider:
It’s worth planning ahead to capture photographic memories of your newborn. The first few weeks of your baby’s life are vital for newborn portraiture as they are generally more relaxed and sleepy, allowing for more artistic poses. You will need to book this session for when they are less than 3 weeks of age.
After the fourth week, your baby will grow and change at an exponential rate, we recommend capturing those early, precious moments over the next 12 months with our Watch Me Grow (WMG®) package.
Typically, we photograph your baby nude, or gently wrapped and asleep, in a blissful state of peace. You’re welcome to bring along special blankets or props, or we can take care of that for you.
