Maternity photoshoot | East Dulwich | London

Baby bump photoshoot 

Your pregnancy is a unique time in your life and, although you might not always feel your best, it's absolutely worth documenting this special moment! I love how pregnancy shoots are filled with the excitement of what's to come. It's such a short period of your life (although those 9 months can sometimes feel like forever), and I can capture those memories for you in a fun, relaxed and natural way.

Beautiful maternity photography doesn't have to be done in a studio. Embrace a different approach to maternity photoshoots, I promise you won't regret it.

My approach 

My approach to your maternity photoshoot is to document your pregnancy exactly as it is at the time of the photo session. It will be a relaxed and fun experience and will be done in the comfort of your own home. If you would like to include any other locations during your photoshoot then I'm obviously more than happy to do so. 

As I'm a documentary family photographer I shoot the events as they come. Even with a maternity photoshoot there's very little posing involved. I am after the real smiles, the hugs and the jokes, and want to capture those moments that reflect your personality.

When to book your maternity photoshoot

This is totally up to you. I would say that probably any moment from 28 weeks up to 35 weeks is great, but it all depends on how you feel. The only thing that you most definitely need though is a sizeable bump to photograph!

What to wear?

Whether it's a maternity photoshoot or any of my other family photo sessions, I often get asked by clients what they should wear. Again, this is up to you! I won't be telling you how to dress, the only thing I would say though is that you should wear something that you feel comfortable and beautiful in.  Find out more about prices here.
