Baby & Maternity Portraits
Those first few weeks with a new baby fly by in the blink of an eye, so it’s important to have memories of how small your precious child actually was. Those little fingers & toes, windy smiles & milk spots- my macro lens will capture them all. My newborn sessions are best done between age 7-14 days, when baby is sleepy and can be placed gently & safely into some beautiful poses. It is advisable to book me during your pregnancy, at which time I will book in your estimated due date. As this date approaches we will keep in contact and within a few days of birth we can arrange a date to suit. The shoot can take place in your own home or at my home studio in Baschurch. I allow lots of time for feeding, cuddles and settling, so please allow up to 4 hours for the session. My newborn images have been featured in the National Magazine, Mother & Baby.
The next stage which is good for photos during your baby’s development is from 6 months onward (or when baby is able to sit up unaided). At this stage your baby is much more alert, smiling and laughing, which makes for a great & fun studio photo session.
Your pregnancy is such a special time and a maternity shoot is a lovely way to proudly display your precious bump to capture some everlasting memories. The shoot can take place outdoors or on location such as at a beautiful woodland or meadow, or in my home studio. I love to show the female form at its best, but realise that semi-nude maternity may not be for everyone, so we will tailor it around your vision & requirements. The images from the shoot make such a beautiful life long keepsake.
