Maternity photography; capture those magical 9 months
Posted Apr 09, 2019 - mattfisher
Pregnancy is such a special time and those 9 months can fly by so quickly. We know how important it is for many women to have more than just the memory of being pregnant, with baby bump castes and maternity photography becoming increasingly popular these days.
For those of you that do want to capture those magical 9 months with a commemorative photograph, a maternity shoot is a fantastic way of recording your pregnancy journey. We work with our mothers-to-be to come up with maternity shoot ideas that make them feel comfortable, and capture the beauty of their bump. We know it can be a very personal experience, and our photographers are here to make sure you get the results you want, in a calm and relaxing setting.
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to a pregnancy photoshoot and 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, as 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’re 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, and 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.
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 photoshoot too. We love to see your little ones captured bonding with their soon-to-be sibling. A truly magical moment!
