Hello! If you're new to the idea of maternity photography, or perhaps even a little skeptical (I know I was!) do keep reading and let me see if I can convince you that it's absolutely worth it.
Pregnancy is a time of change. It comes with big emotions, hopes, dreams, worries, and a body that is evolving before your very eyes. Pregnancy is also temporary. The things that happen to your body, both pleasant and not so pleasant, that you think will be forever, suddenly come to an end; your body changes swiftly again to its new, postpartum state.
I believe that every pregnancy should be documented, because it shows women at their most powerful, even if they don't know it, and whether they feel "the glow" or not.
A pregnancy photoshoot is for you, no matter whether or not you:
- are fully in love with your pregnant body or still not sure how you feel about the changes;
- are superstitious or carefree about celebrating anything to do with your baby before their arrival;
-are pregnant for the first, second, third or tenth time;
-are having an easy or a very complicated and possibly worrying pregnancy
You are still pregnant, and I believe that is something incredible, and special enough to photograph.
What happens when you book a Maternity Photoshoot?
Before the photoshoot, we will have a consultation via email, phone or face to face. During that time we can pick a location, discuss what you might like to wear (anything is fine but I'm always here to advise), and talk about how you're feeling about your pregnancy and your body. We will also decide whether it'll just be you in the photos, or your partner and/or any other children too.
During the photo shoot I will help you to relax and be as natural as you can. I won't boss you around or tell you what to do, but I will gently direct you so that you are in the best light, and so your body is in the most flattering position. I tend to snap most of the best shots when you don't even know I'm pressing the button!
My style is timeless and tasteful: there will never be any dodgy outfits, no awkward posing, and no naked shots unless YOU specifically request them.
After the shoot, I will professionally edit the photos that you choose yourself from a large gallery of proofs. I will make the colours pop, the light look perfect, and your skin glow.
You'll be between 30 and 40 weeks pregnant at the time of the session, though we can do an announcement photoshoot earlier on in a pregnancy if you have a scan photo.
I offer maternity photoshoots both in your own home or outdoors in and around Coventry, Warwickshire and the West Midlands, or at my home photography studio in Cheylesmore, Coventry.

I can't wait to hear from you!
