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.

Marley | 8 days…

This little cherub had me melting sooo bad! I just had to share a couple of my personal favourites and her beautiful mumma’s experience. If you’ve been considering a newborn session, please get in contact soon to reserve your tentative due date. Bookings are limited so click here 🙂


The Client Experience

How has your experience been with JC imagery and how did Jodi make you feel?

Our whole experience was incredible from start to finish. It was lovely to know Marley was safe and in very capable hands with Jodi, but also that I was also able to be comfortable in her professional environment. I felt understood and relaxed during what was a challenging time, as most postpartum women will agree.

Highlights

What was the highlight of your session?

Watching my partner interact with Jodi and Marley to set up the shoots. It was my first time since she was born I really could sit and watch without worrying or fussing… The part where Marley also wee’d on Jodi made me laugh too!

Our Story

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or did your little one make you work for it?

Asides from some controlled hypertension, in hindsight it was pretty breezy after the all day sickness dropped off 2nd tri.. I carried her fairly well, didn’t swell or blow up, had attainable cravings of hot chips, honey in sourdough toast.. and organic royal gala apples, but I’d only eat them from one grower only.. many other apples went into the bin with one bite taken out.

How did you find out whether you were having a boy or a girl? Or was it a total surprise?

We found out at 20w scan.. We were so sure it was a boy though we got them to double check on the day and then triple check again at 28w…

Baby Name

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)?

We had thrown a few names around but at the scan when we found out it was a girl, I just looked at my fiance and said “Marley” and he immediately agreed. We called her The Punisher while she was in the womb.. not for sinister reasons though. We’d just finished watching it on Netflix and one of her scan images of her skull looked like his logo/emblem thing. So we went with that.

Preparation

Tell me your favourite stores that you are obsessed with shopping at (this may help other parents prepare for their new miracle).

You can’t go past ‘Kmart’ and ‘Best & Less’.. and ‘Aldi’ when it’s baby week.. then online for girls there is: ‘Little Eedie Boutique‘, ‘Bubs Warehouse‘, ‘CMC Gold‘, ‘Mae & Rae‘, ‘Lulu & Milly, ‘Arrabella Rose’, ‘Tutuirresistable’… Also, ‘Bonds‘ wonsersuits are the best too.

How far in advance did you prepare the nursery? Or did you wing it last minute?

We started at 20w, but it wasn’t 100% done till I went on my mat leave at 35w and had time to nest.

Tips & Tricks

Do you have any tips for expecting mums?

Enjoy your pregnancy. It sounds silly to some but it is a wonderful experience, I miss laying down at night and feeling her kick and roll around.

Do you have any tips and tricks for parents adjusting to parenthood in those early days?

It’s okay to cry, take plenty of photos and remember you can never spoil a newborn. Hold them, kiss them and take in the amazing smell that is baby breath!
