pregnancy photography sessions

Pregnancy is one of the most precious moments in your life and creating a photographic reminder of this time is now incredibly popular.

Being a female photographer, I fully understand that mums-to-be may have some insecurities about their pregnancy body shape and I’ll work with you in our pre-shoot consultation to decide on the style or combination of styles that will be most flattering. As one of the first photographers in South Wales to start offering pregnancy photoshoots, I have years of experience in putting expectant mums at ease and knowing exactly what will work best for you.
And because not everyone wants to display their pregnancy photographs on the wall I also offer a range of products to make sure that you can keep a special personal reminder of this time to look back on in years to come.

All of my maternity photographs have an artistic and sensitive touch. These are fine art portraits - classic, elegant and sophisticated - which will stand the test of time and will never look dated, gimmicky or go out of fashion.
Every pregnancy is different, but as a rough guide you should book your photoshoot for somewhere between the 30th and 36th week of your pregnancy when your bump is clearly showing but not so close to your due date that standing for long periods may be uncomfortable or little one risks putting in a surprise appearance.

Pregnancy photoshoots typically last between 60 and 90 minutes and include unlimited clothing changes / backgrounds / staging.
Although the mobile portrait service is available for home sessions within my catchment area, I recommend a studio appointment to allow more space for full length shots and creative lighting techniques.
Outdoor location sessions are also available during the Summer months.

silhouettes

I love to play with the lighting during pregnancy photoshoots and whether it’s a full high contrast silhouette against a bright white background or a softer semi-silhouette (contre jour) this technique is extremely versatile and flattering for all expectant mums.


draped fabric

This is another favourite for pregnancy sessions. The results are dramatic and elegant and the drapes give us the versatility to accentuate your pregnancy curves while also concealing any areas that you may be feeling less confident about.

just for you

One of the most rewarding aspects of any maternity session is showing mum-to-be just how beautiful she looks during her pregnancy. Whether you prefer to keep things discreet and show your pregnancy curves through a full length dress or you decide on something a little racier, I’ll arrange the poses and lighting to make sure that you look fantastic.

For the two of you


Having a new baby is a life changing experience for the both of you. Dramatically lit black and whites or soft romantic flowers, there are a range of options to involve dad-to-be in your pregnancy photos too.

for siblings and family

If your new arrival already has older siblings waiting to meet him/her, it’s a lovely idea to get them involved in your pregnancy photoshoot so that they don’t feel left out.
