Firstly, Congratulations! This is a time to celebrate! Pregnancy is an incredibly unique (and quite short) moment in a family’s life. You’re preparing for a precious life to enter the world and you might only be really ‘looking pregnant’ for 3 or 4 months. Your baby will be here before you know it, and as soon as your baby is born, you’ll likely forget a lot about your pregnancy. Right now, you’re forming a special bond with your baby. Even if it’s not your last baby, you will never have this exact moment again.

You’ve probably already been on a journey to get to this point. Perhaps you have just had your 12-week scan or maybe you are counting the weeks as you enter your third trimester? Maybe you are full of hope, excitement and anticipation? Or perhaps sitting with feelings of anxiety, fear or cautious optimism? However, you arrive here, welcome, we are so glad you are considering capturing your pregnancy.

Thinking about a maternity photoshoot?

Photography is considered by most people an essential part of a wedding day, making sure you have all the memories captured and don’t forget any part of it. It’s a wonderful time filled with love and family, and it is a huge moment in a couples life. It isn’t any different for pregnancy!

Depending on how you feel at this stage of your pregnancy journey, you may be unsure about whether you want to invest your time and money into professional maternity photos. If you’re not sure about whether to do it, all we can say is don’t do it if your heart isn’t in it. But if a part of you wants it, then know that if you go to the effort of having a session like this, you will have this moment captured forever. And you will hopefully love them forever; your children will also see and hopefully love them when they are older too.

Your journey to parenthood could have been easy and unproblematic, beautifully unexpected or a rollercoaster through endless doctor appointments and tears of joy! Every journey is special and your maternity photo session will tell your own unique parenthood story.

When to have your Maternity Photoshoot

There’s no right or wrong when it comes to a pregnancy photoshoot. The best time to come is when you feel it’s right for you, but as a guide, to get the best photos we normally recommend around 30 weeks. By this time you will usually have a lovely round bump, but you (hopefully!) won’t be feeling too weighed down and uncomfortable.

We have sometimes heard women being put off by seeing lots of women who look completely naked for their pregnancy photoshoots, and although we are happy to work with you if this is what you’d like (we have clever ways to make sure you’re never completely exposed!), we also understand that not everyone wants to bear quite as much skin. We have plenty of women who keep their bump covered at all times during the shoot, with just as beautiful results. It really is a personal choice as to how you want to show off your bump and your body, and we will always take guidance and direction from you on this.

A Maternity Photoshoot with your Partner

We also offer baby bump photo shoot with partner in tow, which always makes for a great first family portrait, and we often get couples coming back once the little one has arrived for a ‘before and after’ style shoot. Alternatively, you can bring the whole family along and involve them in the family photoshoot too. We love to see your little ones captured bonding with their soon-to-be sibling. A truly magical moment!

If you want to find out more about our maternity photography, please give us a call on 01727 809 140 and we’d be happy to chat through.
