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 selection in the studio to choose from. I have amazing outfits and 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.
