Pregnancy is such a special time. There is nothing like feeling a baby growing inside of you. It truly is a miracle in the making. It’s a fantastic time to capture special memories not only for you but your children. Your child will know how proud you were and are to become ‘Mum’. Pregnancy session’s are best done between the 28 and 34 weeks. If you don’t think you have a ‘substantial’ bump at this time we can wait a little longer and do the session towards the 35 – 37 weeks. I know towards the end of your pregnancy you may not feel like you are ‘glowing’. Back ache, swelling, cramps, not sleeping it’s understandable that you may not feel your best. It’s my job as a photographer to make you look and feel wonderful. Don’t worry if you are finding it difficult to feel good. I will do that for you!
Pregnancy sessions are tailored towards your preferences. When booking your session we will discuss what you would like from the session, the type of images you would prefer. Some ladies like to be completely covered others like to show off their bump to the fullest and don’t mind tasteful nude shots. All shot’s are performed in a discreet and tasteful manner and we will only do what you are comfortable with.
You should think about what you would like to bring with you to the session. This can be outfits, underwear, jewellery, scan pictures or anything else with sentimental value. We also discuss these items over the phone. Such items can include jewellery, accessories, hats and scarfs, footwear, ultrasound photos or even little booties. I also have a range of wraps, and maternity gowns that are available to use. If you are having photographs with Daddy then I suggest for men to bring or wear something simple. Plain shirts work well. Ideally I would suggest dad bring a selection of light and dark shirts. If there are children to be photographed with the new ‘bump’ then I suggest colour coordinating their outfits with both of yours.
We have an honest & open pricing policy. All pricing is completely transparent and available to view before you book, allowing you to decide if we are the right studio for you. The session fee not only reserves your booking, it also cover’s Maxine’s time and talent during your newborn shoot and the hours involved in the professional post processing and retouching of each individual image that is chosen to be included in your beautiful finished gallery. After your photography session Maxine will then arrange for you to come back and view your beautiful gallery usually two weeks after the session. This is where you decide which package you would like. There is no hard sell involved. The choice is completely yours.
