Maternity photography is a unique and precious way to capture your baby’s first impact on the world and for the mum-to-be it is a chance to sit back, be pampered and celebrate the beauty of pregnancy. Maternity Portraits take place in my comfortable and spacious studio and all my maternity clients are offered a complimentary mini-makeover for their maternity photo shoot. Partners, siblings and other family members are also invited to take part in the shoot.

I enjoy building a relationship with my clients as they progress through the ‘game of life’ and I absolutely love watching them grow through the years. I offer a ‘Stepping Stones‘ package for new families where they can pick three family photo shoots and three images as a ‘Collection’ that will help record the first precious year of a new baby’s life.

The ‘Stepping Stones‘  journey can begin with either the Maternity Shoot or the Newborn shoot. The ideal time for the Maternity shoot is between 34-37 weeks as the bump is nicely rounded and full at this stage but last trimester tiredness isn’t yet in full swing! Partners and siblings are more than welcome to join in, and the shoot lasts about an hour. I have a selection of gowns and accessories and you are free to bring along momentos and scan pictures etc. We will look in detail at wardrobe choices and styling the shoot when you book but ideas can be found on my Pinterest site and the Facebook page.

Once we have enjoyed the first shoot together, my clients will book regular return visits to the studio for Family shoots on special birthdays, at Christmas time and as part of a Gift Experience for friends and family. I often welcome my ‘Stepping Stones‘ clients back for Golden weddings, decade celebrations for extended family, or just a treat for mum on Mother’s day.
