Woohoo! You’re having a baby!
Huge congratulations, how are you feeling? I hope your pregnancy has been kind to you, and that you’re feeling amazing. If not (I know I didn’t) then I hope your morning sickness/SPD/bloating/other side effects bugger off very soon.
First things first, I am so glad you’re planning a maternity shoot. I didn’t with my first baby, and I regret it. (Need a laugh? Check out my terrible bump pics here!)
So now I’ve convinced you not to make the same mistake I did, which maternity session is right for you?
Long grasses and golden sunsets make this a classic for a reason. Borrow a beautiful frock from my client wardrobe (or wear one of your own!) and let’s head to the park.
More of a sun, sea and sand kinda girl? Maternity sessions at the beach are always a favourite…
I’m always going to encourage you to show some skin! I didn’t, with either pregnancy – not even in iphone snaps at home. And I reeeeeeally wish I had…
Look, I’m not usually a morning person. But there’s no denying that sunrise light is something else.
If you can handle the early start, a sunrise shoot is absolute magic
Maternity sessions don’t have to be outdoors. I love visiting you in your favourite place, or having you visit me at my in-home studio. In these sessions, we can get cosy and really embrace your changing body.
In home sessions can be ideal if you have a toddler who loves to be home. These happen in the morning or early afternoon, so can be easier if you are juggling naps (whether yours or your toddler’s!)
The studio allows you to escape the madness of home and comes with endless cups of tea and whatever playlist will make you feel like an absolute goddess…
So which maternity shoot will you choose?! And what will you wear??
