Pregnancy is a period of immense joy and excitement for a woman, and I believe a great maternity portrait should reflect that emotion, as well as the beauty and grace that a mum -to- be naturally radiates.
So if you’re expecting a baby, let me preserve this special time in your life in stunning portraits you’ll be proud to show your child one day.
A photograph is the pause button on life and these fleeting moments should be preserved with a beautiful range of photos for you to treasure forever.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY SESSION?
Maternity sessions are a celebration of this special time in your life and I love to include personal elements for you and your baby in your portraits to ensure images are unique to you. We can start with some relaxed shots then move onto more glamorous poses – it all depends on your preferences. Please see the full maternity session information here for details and photos from my sessions.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION?
I recommend booking your maternity photography session when you have had your 20-week scan so we can schedule a date based on your due date.
WHEN WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
In my experience the ideal time for your session is around 4-6 weeks before your due date, depending on how you are feeling, and how many babies you are expecting.
DO WE NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
No, as I have a collection of glamorous gowns at my studio, with all tastes catered for. However, you are welcome to bring along any items to personalise your session, such as some part of your wedding dress, or any favourite outfits or cuddly toys you may have purchased for your baby.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST?
With my basic maternity package the session lasts one hour, while with my premium package it’s two hours.
CAN MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN BE INCLUDED IN THE PHOTOS?
Yes, they can! I love involving siblings and partners in the photos I take! !It may be preferable to have someone bring your other children towards the end, or at the beginning, of the session to ensure you can relax and enjoy having a bit of time focusing on your bump.
DO YOU EDIT THE IMAGES?
Yes, I edit the images I take as part of my post-production process. This includes removing skin blemishes, fine-tuning colours, enhancing particular details, and so on.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I GET?
My basic package includes 8 digital images. Clients opting for my premium package will receive 15 digital images.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE WE CAN SEE THE PHOTOS?Within 14 days of your session you will return to my studio for your ordering appointment where you will get to relax and enjoy a slideshow of your session. You can then choose the images you’d like to order and will receive a link to download the images by email.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A MATERNITY SESSION?
I recommend that the maternity session takes place at 32-34 weeks – and encourage you to book your session after your 20-week scan.
DO YOU PROVIDE OUTFITS?
Yes, I have a collection of glamorous maternity gowns we can use in the session.However, feel free to bring along any favourite maternity dress of your own.
WHERE WILL THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
At my photo studio, in Hampton Hill High Street. However, if you opt for my Gold package I will also photograph you in Bushy Park, which my studio is situated next to.
ARE YOU OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND WHAT PRECAUTIONS ARE YOU TAKING WITH REGARD TO COVID-19?
As government guidelines specify, we must practise social distancing, wear a face covering and ensure regular hand washing or hand sanitisation during our session. For newborn baby sessions, I will also wear gloves while posing and photographing your little one.
