CAPTURE your amazing JOURNEY
Congratulations at this exciting time in your life.
Many mothers to be shy away from photo shoots during this time as they fear showing off their body thinking that they don't look at their best.
With the right styling, mood, lighting, careful posing and retouching every women will look amazing and those fears can all be forgotten.
I enjoy working closely with my clients prior to our session, enabling me to create the mood that best reflects their personality. It’s then time to make some exciting wardrobe choices, as well as styling, to ensure you feel both beautiful and comfortable.
Some clients prefer to be clothed, some like to be draped or wear pretty underwear and others like the beauty and fine art of implied nude.
Most of my maternity sessions include a little bit of each which results in a gorgeous gallery of portraits and a beautiful memory of the fleeting moment of carrying your child.
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK OUR MATERNITY SESSION ?
As soon as you are ready.
Each session is created especially for you so we need time to plan and design ahead of your maternity session date.
WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE A MATERNITY SESSION ?
The best time is between weeks 32 and 36. It is best to still be feeling comfortable and showing a beautifully rounded belly at this stage.
Sessions take place from Monday to Friday.
HOW DO WE BOOK A MATERNITY SESSION ?
