maternity photography

Photographs have an incredible power to take you back to the emotions and moments captured. This is why photography is so meaningful to me and why I have dedicated my life to capturing special moments in people’s lives.


Once a good friend told me she missed being pregnant. At the time I thought it was a strange statement. Now having experienced pregnancy I understand exactly what she meant. It was such a special time for me, and I miss it. You may think there is no way you’ll miss the exhaustion, heartburn, morning sickness etc. but once you’re no longer pregnant you very quickly forget all of this and all you’re left with are the feelings…of love, joy and connection to your baby. I often find myself looking at my own pregnancy images and connecting my daughter who is now 16 months to that little being who would kick me like crazy at slightest taste of orange juice.

Whether you feel the pregnancy glow or not a professional can make you feel and look like you do. This is the time to preserve these moments through beautiful photographs that you will cherish for years to come.

When to book

Your maternity session should ideally be booked between 32-36 weeks. This is a time where most women have a nice large bump but haven’t gotten so big that it’s uncomfortable to move.

Indoor or Outdoor?

It’s up to you. Your session should reflect you and your personality. A phone consultation is included in every session so we can determine together the look and feel you want in your images.

How long is a session?

A session can be anywhere from 30mins to an hour depending on how you’re feeling.

Who can I bring to a session?

This session can be all about you if you like or you’re also welcome to bring your significant other and any other children you have. Please allow for up to 90 minutes for your session if there are 3 or more of you.

How should I prepare for my session?

  • If you’d like to go nude or if you plan on barring just your belly avoid tight fitting clothing and accessories like watches and bracelets at least two hours before your session so they don’t leave any visible marks on your skin.
  • It’s a good idea to also make sure your nails are polished, whether you go for a manicure or keep them natural.
  • Clothing should be fitted and accentuate the bust line and belly. Form fitting clothes with a little stretch will really compliment your figure. Your welcome to bring in 2-3 outfits and we can decide together what works best.
