Why book a Maternity shoot
Pregnancy is magical. The natural beauty of a woman who’s ready to bring new life into the world is simply breathtaking. Especially for first-time mums. It can be a very exciting time you may wish to capture. A maternity shoot is also a fantastic way to celebrate the baby you're about to meet. Freeze this magical time forever in a photoshoot, so you can look back and remember how amazing it felt to carry your baby.
When to book
I recommend booking your maternity shoot towards the end of your third trimester as the bump is really at it's best then. Your photographs will be more flattering as your bump will be nice and round at this stage. But not so heavy that you feel tired and uncomfortable.
What to wear
There are a wide variety of things to consider when it comes to doing a maternity shoot. What to wear, indoor or outdoor, should I include my partner, time of day, etc? Do a little research and see what you like. I recommend clothing that shows off your figure. Anything from flowing dresses that fall around the bump to fitted that flatter and show off your new curves. Pastel colours or black is always great as patterns tend to be distracting and take away from the main focus, your beautiful bump.
Silhouettes are best captured at sunrise or sunset, the images below taken outside were at sunrise between 5/6 am on the beach and in the woods. There are also studio samples below which can be shot in the comfort of your own home. I will work within the boundaries you feel comfortable, so get in touch and let's make some plans :)
