Having a baby will be one of the most momentous events of your life and something you will want to cherish.

Pregnancy is not only the beginning of a new life; it’s the start of a breath-taking journey.  A woman becomes a mother and couples become a family. This is a perfect opportunity to obtain a keepsake of that precious time and creation of new life.  I find the best time for your sessions are between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. Why not come and have your photo taken a few times to have some photos showing the growth of your bump!

If this is not your first pregnancy, then it would be a lovely opportunity to come and have some photographs with big brothers or sisters-to-be!  Some of my cutest ‘bump’ photos have been with big brothers and sisters loving the bump before the baby even arrives!

 

 

Maternity and newborn photography naturally fit together, and so I suggest you have two portrait sessions: one to record your pregnancy and the second, in the first few weeks after your baby is born, to celebrate the new addition to your family. Newborn babies are best photographed at around 1-2 weeks to get those cute sleepy shots, but if you would prefer to wait until they are a little more alert, we can wait (but I would advise no more than 1 month old for the ‘newborn’ concept to work).

 

      

 

 

Come and visit me in my Stamford studio and have a ‘maternity’ portrait shoot.  Then revisit me with you newborn baby for a ‘baby’ shoot.  This can also include family portraits with parents and any siblings. 

We can then spend time to choose a ‘bump’ photo and a ‘baby’ photo for the composite or design a unique bump to baby book to record them memories of this special time in your family’s life. Bump to Baby shoots are a beautiful way to remember pregnancy and record your baby during their first few days in the world.

Gift vouchers are available for bump, baby or bump to baby shoots. This would be a perfect gift for any mum-to-be. This package is a popular gift for colleagues to give to women about to go onto maternity leave or for people who have already had a baby so don’t need more toys or baby grows!!!.
