Why should you book a Maternity Photoshoot?
A.Booking a maternity photoshoot is an excellent way to capture this special time in your life and create memories that you can cherish for years to come. Here are a few reasons why you should consider booking a maternity photoshoot:
1. Celebrate your pregnancy: Pregnancy is a significant milestone in your life, and a maternity photoshoot is an excellent way to celebrate this momentous occasion. You can showcase your baby bump, and capture the joy and excitement of this special time.
2.Create lasting memories: A maternity photoshoot allows you to create beautiful, timeless images that you can cherish forever. You can look back at these photos and remember the anticipation, excitement, and love that you felt during your pregnancy.
3. Bond with your partner: A maternity photoshoot is an opportunity for you and your partner to bond and create memories together. You can involve your partner in the photoshoot, and capture the love and connection between the two of you.
4. Share with family and friends: Maternity photos can be shared with family and friends, who can also share in the joy of your pregnancy. You can display these photos in your home, or use them in birth announcements, baby shower invitations, or other mementos.
Overall, a maternity photoshoot is an excellent way to capture this special time in your life and create memories that you will treasure forever.
It’s important to note that natural parts of the pregnancy, like stretch marks, weight gain, and swollen feet, are nothing to worry about. I will use my skills and expertise to accentuate your beauty and create images you will be proud to display and share with your loved ones for years to come.
When is the best time to book a Maternity Photoshoot?
A.The sooner the better!
You can book your maternity photo session after your 20 weeks scan, with a minimum of 6-8 weeks before your desired date. The ideal time for the photoshoot is typically between 28 and 34 weeks of pregnancy when it is still comfortable to pose and the baby bump has a lovely shape. However, if you’re interested in a maternity photoshoot and are past this time frame, don’t hesitate to contact me. I may still be able to accommodate a last-minute booking.
I work 5 days per week, by appointment only. So if you have a certain date in mind, let me know ASAP. I get very busy of a weekend, so pre-booking is vital to get the date you want.
Should I bring my family to the Photoshoot?
A.Having your family present during the maternity photography session can create truly unique and intimate photos. Whether it’s a tender embrace with your partner or a playful interaction with your children or pets, these moments will be captured forever in your photos. So, it is highly recommended to bring your husband, partner, children, or pets to the photo shoot. They are a crucial part of your story, and their presence will add to the joy and magic of the experience.
Including the whole family in a maternity session also creates a wonderful opportunity for bonding and creating new memories together. The excitement and anticipation of the new arrival is a time to cherish, and having the whole family present for the photo shoot will create memories that will last a lifetime. So don’t hesitate to bring your loved ones and furry friends for an unforgettable maternity session.
