Who is this for?
Our fine art maternity portraits and baby bump photos are for any expectant Mums who would like to keep a beautiful, lasting keepsake of their pregnancy.
Your maternity portraits can include just yourself, or we can also include your partner too.
Throughout your maternity shoots, we’ll keep you as comfortable as possible, with Karen assisting you with posing to ensure that you not only look great but also feel great too.
We recommend booking your maternity shoot for around 7-8 months… depending on the size of your baby bump!
Our selection of speciality maternity gowns have been produced exclusively for maternity portrait sessions and range from quite sheer to much more modest, so you can be sure to find something you're comfortable wearing. If you prefer to bring your own gowns and/or a few props with you, you're more than welcome to do so.
Our fine art maternity shoots include a selection of high key, mid key and low key photos, with up to 3 outfit changes during the session so we can create a great variety of portraits for you to choose from. As with all our photo shoots, full editing and retouching is included as standard.
A few of the most common questions answered...
When should we arrange a maternity shoot?
For the best maternity portraits, we recommend arranging your maternity photo shoot between 7 to 8 months - based mostly on how big your baby bump is. We want you to look visibly pregnant, but also be comfortable in yourself.
How long will a maternity shoot take?
Because we understand that everything is hard work when you're heavily pregnant, we aim to keep our maternity shoots down to no more than 1-2 hours, depending on your package. If adding professional make-up artist, allow an extra hour.
We promise to keep you as comfortable as possible throughout your maternity photo shoot!
Does my partner have to come?
No this isn’t compulsory... but if you'd like to include a few portraits taken of you with your partner, they are welcome to join us for your maternity shoot.
If your partner can't make it, you're also welcome to bring a friend for that extra moral support!
Do I need to bring props or maternity gowns?
Only if you want to. We have a selection of specially made gowns which have been produced exclusively for use as props during maternity photo shoots, that you are welcome to use during your maternity shoot... so all you need to do is turn up!
Do you offer make-up services?
Not directly... but if you'd like to add a professional makeup artist, we can send contact details of MUA's that we've worked with before and would recommend so you can contact them to discuss your personal requirements.
How many portraits will I get?
We offer collections including sets of 5, 10 or 20 images. All collections include both prints and digital copies, in high and low-resolution formats, and you can add extras if required.
Do you offer a deal for booking both a maternity and newborn shoot?
Yes, we offer a super-value 3-shoot baby plan which includes any 3 portrait sessions AND comes with a free Luxury Heirloom Print Box too! Be sure to request an infopack for full details.
