All you need to know about Maternity Photography with JC Imagery

Why you should book Maternity Photography?

I can understand that there is a lot to organise when preparing for a new baby but maternity photography should definitely be on your list! Here are a few reasons why I think you should capture this special time…

To spoil yourself!

Professional photography is great way to pamper yourself before your new baby arrives! I will focus on all the details so that you can feel beautiful, relaxed and empowered.

To bring back your confidence.

Some of you may feel swollen and uncomfortable during pregnancy which is why you should have professional photography, so that you can see yourself in a different way. I will highlight your best features and discuss any concerns you may have so that the outcome exceeds your expectations. Standing in front of the camera to pose doesn’t come naturally to most too, which is why I will guide you every step of the way so that you don’t even have to think about it!

To have fun and laugh! 

Pregnancy can be an extremely stressful time, especially for new mothers so a memorable photography experience can help take your mind off things.

To remember the moment…

Your pregnancy will be over before you know it! Capture the bond with your growing child through a high-quality work of art… These photo’s will trigger such vivid memories and emotion, especially after your baby has become earth-side.

How to prepare?

What to wear: I have a small selection in the studio to choose from. I also have amazing pure silk in various colours available to add a unique touch to your gallery.

Makeup: I recommend having it done by a professional makeup artist because the camera tends to expose flaws that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Professional makeup artists are trained in contouring the face, colour matching and accentuating your best features. I repair an extensive range of problems during my post production techniques though for a flawless complexion, it is best to have a professional do it for you. Besides, makeup makes you feel good and leads to greater confidence during your session!

Hair: Sometimes our hair can look dull and flat so if you want that extra polished look, have a hairdresser style your locks… They use premium products to control any imperfection and are able to frame your face perfectly. If you decide to do it yourself though, just ensure to control any frizz, add products & create some volume. An up-style or full bodied-curls are usually a client’s go-to look!

When to book?

Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks gestation and generally take between 1-2 hours. Clients tend to book in advance and combine with a newborn session to receive an exclusive offer. Please click here to get in touch for more information.

Where are we located?

My home-studio is located in Craigmore SA, approx. 30km North of the Adelaide CBD.

Our Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it? We ended up trying for a year and a half. She sure made us work for it. But timing ended up being perfect. We just moved into our new home and are more than ready for her now!

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise? Yes we’re having a little girl!!


Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear… I have bought a few items from ‘Ripe‘ (located in Myer) Adelaide. And a couple dresses from ‘Boohoo‘.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute? Yes we started as soon as we moved in our new home which was a month ago. We are feeling nice and settled now and can’t wait for her arrival.

The best part about being a photographer is receiving feedback from clients about how you made them feel during their shoot and once they view their portraits… This beautiful woman wasn’t confident prior to her session at all but is now incredibly happy to have had her maternity shoot so that these memories can be remembered… I love to find out what you do and don’t like so that we can create something that you love!

If you have any questions, click here, I would love to hear them and chat further about your maternity photography experience. What better way to pamper yourself before bub arrives! Jodi x

The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and would you recommend Jodi to friends? My experience has been excellent from start to finish, I would definitely recommend Jodi to friends and family!

How did Jodi make you feel throughout the booking process and during your shoot? She made me feel so comfortable and confident in my own skin.

My Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it? I have been very lucky to not have any complications throughout my pregnancy, although I have had nausea all way through and low blood pressure towards the end. During my shoot, because of my low blood pressure, I had to sit down towards the end for a few minutes. Jodi was so patient and looked after me well, ensuring I felt ok again to get back up and finish the session.

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise? It is my first baby so we have decided on having a surprise!


Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear… I love ‘Pea in a pod Maternity‘, it is where I got my baby shower dress from! And ‘BAE the label‘ also has some beautiful maternity and nursing wear.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute? The nursery is just about ready, just need to put a few shelves up and add a bit of pink or blue when bub arrives!


Do you have any tips for expecting mums? If you are unsure whether you want to do a maternity shoot because you aren’t feeling super confident in your own skin, have trust in Jodi and just do it! This is how I felt initially but now I am so glad that I ended up doing this shoot with the lovely and talented Jodi! She will make you feel super comfortable and produce some beautiful photos for you to look back on forever…

Meet Evaliah… What an absolutely gorgeous baby, I couldn’t get enough of her beautiful strawberry hair and button nose. She was an absolute angel during her session so we were able to get such amazing portraits for her family to remember…

The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel?
Our experience with JC imagery was more than we could’ve ever asked for! Going into my maternity shoot I was extremely nervous and wasn’t really sure what to expect, but by the end of it, I walked away with some amazing photos that I thought I would’ve never been able to achieve, let alone feel comfortable in doing so. Then when we returned with our little girl I was so comfortable with handing her over. Jodi is such a lovely and genuine person, it definitely shows that she is passionate about her job.


What was the highlight of your maternity and newborn session?
The highlight of my maternity shoot was definitely when my partner was helping with the silk flick in a couple of my photos. He just couldn’t quite master it but in the end we got an amazing photo. I loved how Jodi included my partner in the session. As for the newborn session, the highlight was just watching Jodi work. It was incredible to watch how Jodi would calm Evaliah down, ready for each setup. We had full confidence throughout the whole shoot and we even managed to get a, extra prop while bub slept.

Why did you choose JC Imagery to capture this special time?
I stumbled across JC imagery in my search through Instagram for a newborn/maternity photographer in Adelaide. I instantly fell in love with her work! She is so flexible and offers high-quality photographs, which was exactly what we were after.

Our Story…

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it? Little-miss definitely made me work for it!! Got stuck with the horrid Hyperemesis Gravidarum… 🙁

Did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?
We found out at our 18-week scan. We had planned to find out at a gender reveal that we were going to have but the suspense was too much! As soon as the sonographer asked if we wanted to know we both jumped at the opportunity.


How did you come up with your baby’s name? And did you have other names that you used while your new baby was still in the womb)?
Before we found out that we were having a girl, we would refer to her as ‘jellybean’. Then from probably 26 weeks onwards, we fell in love with the name Evaliah. We just stumbled across it one day after tossing a few different variations around. I loved the name Evie, but my partner wasn’t set on it so we decided on Evaliah. Evie for a nickname.


What are your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at…
I’m sure that I’m not the only one but I’m totally obsessed with all things ‘Kmart!’ There’s an online store called ‘Little Eedie and they have some adorable clothing! Baby Bunting also have some incredible items and some amazing nursery furniture.

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?
We moved down from Cairns when I was 32 weeks pregnant and had ordered all our nursery furniture from an online store. The room was ready and set up only a few weeks before Evaliah arrived.


Do you have any tips for expecting mums?
The only tip that I can really give is, is to be completely open-minded. Don’t go into parenthood expecting to have everything done perfectly and to know what you’re doing. Have an open mind about the birth as well because literally, anything can happen. I was terrified of becoming a Mum with fear of failing and not being good enough but now I am absolutely loving it! Just take each day as it comes and every minute while your baby is little, it doesn’t last for long.

Helpful tricks

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?
Definitely try and get a bassinet with wheels on it! After leaving the hospital and coming home I actually got my dad to attach a set of wheels to my bassinet… Stock your freezer up with frozen meals! This has been a life saver for my partner and I. Those nights where you are over exhausted and just can’t be bothered cooking are the perfect nights to just pull out a frozen home-cooked meal!

Meet Jess… This mum-to-be totally embraced her pregnancy and we had so much fun working together! We used a couple of different colours of pure silk during her session for variety and to capture her amazing bump!

Our photography sessions are slow paced and held indoors in my beautifully lit studio where you can relax and pamper yourself before your new addition arrives…

I hope you enjoy looking through a few of my favourites from our session and if you would like more information, please click HERE. Otherwise feel free to check out our FACEBOOK page to view more of our work.

I would absolutely love to hear from you to discuss your personalised photography session! Jodi x

Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and would you recommend Jodi to friends?

This is my second time with Jodi and she was just as amazing as the first photo shoot. Highly recommend her!

How did you feel about finding a photographer and how did Jodi make you feel?

Jodi is so professional, happy and just makes you feel very comfortable (as we all know photos can be a bit daunting)!

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Has it been a breeze or has your little one made you work for it?

Being 38wks now, this babe is giving me a lot of kicks to ribs and a bit uncomfortable, but a pretty good pregnancy.

Have you found out whether you are having a boy or a girl? Or is it a total surprise?

Yes, my partner and I know. But shhh… It’s a secret for everyone else! 🙂

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with for maternity wear.

I found that in summer, I could wear a lot normal woman’s clothes- summer dresses were the best. Winter is harder and when you are just about to pop I don’t want to buy too much. So Kmart & Cotton On have been my favourite.

Have you started to prepare the baby’s nursery or are you going to wing it last minute?

Yes! We are all done, now we just need our bubba!

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

It’s such an amazing/crazy experience, so enjoy it all, even the days where you’re sick… Your body is changing…it’s pretty amazing that you have a little mini you growing inside!
