Maternity, Pregnancy or Bumps Photography is perhaps my favourite subject, and my Company name reflects that!
As a Midwife for nearly fifteen years I was privileged and delighted to have witnessed and assisted in the miracle that is the birth of a baby and the creation of a mother, and of a family.
A woman is so beautiful in late pregnancy and it is wonderful to capture that very short time between her maximum girth(!) and the baby’s birth.
Some mums come alone, as a surprise for their partner, others come as a couple. Either way, you will be delighted with the results – some close-ups, some full body shots, flattering lighting and drapes – images to treasure forever. I like the intimacy that the black backdrop conveys, but I also take shots with more lights and the white backdrop. Pregnancy photos also look stunning in black and white.
I love the relaxed pace of this shoot, getting to know one another a little and talking about the excitement and slight trepidation for what lies ahead.
When a woman leaves the studio after a pregnancy shoot, I can’t wait to meet her baby a few weeks later and am honoured to be on the list of people to be informed!!
