Project Description

Maternity Portraits & Newborn Photos

How special are those moments the first time you are expecting a baby?
When we were expecting, keeping a photo journal of the pregnancy was really important to us.
Being able to reflect back in years to come. We look back at those photos and realize just how special this time was.
A good record for us was our unique maternity photos.

Maternity Portraits

Ideal time for Maternity Sessions

Sessions are best in the 3rd trimester, between weeks 30-35.
This gives a nice round bump for best results.
Maternity Sessions are relaxed and taken at your pace.
Only poses that are comfortable are used to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.

Preparing for your maternity photo session

To ensure a variety during your Photo session, bring along a change of clothing.
Try compliment your partner’s clothing with yours to give best results for the portraits.
Any items purchased for baby, i.e. booties, toys, trinkets help add a personal touch to the photos.
If you have any ideas you would like to try out, bring samples along & I’ll do my best to oblige.
Make sure garments are ironed, as creases can be distracting in photographs.

Bump to Baby Session Combo

If you have booked a Maternity session, you have the option to add a Newborn session so that once baby is born you can call in to the studio for their first baby photos.

Ordering Prints

Once the photos have been taken, I select the best from the session to edit and create an online gallery to display them.
They will all be available in Colour and Black & White in 2 sub galleries.
You will receive an email with all the details on how to log in to your private gallery to view them.
Pricing will be displayed on each photo and options to purchase either as Singles or Collections if buying bulk.
Buying in bulk gives a better price than singles.
