RELAXED & GENTLE
MaDe for Two
The time before your baby arrives is something so unique, an experience like no other and one that should be celebrated as your body does it’s amazing work.
My maternity sessions are a gentle and relaxed way to enjoy each other’s company, to capture the love between you and your unborn baby.
Sessions take place outdoors, at one of my favourite locations, at your home or in my studio for a more home-styled, intimate feel.
Part of your session experience is talking through what to expect, the best location for the season and clothing that photographs well. Ensuring that you feel comfortable and confident for your session is a top priority and will shine through in your photographs.
I will make sure that your gallery contains a beautiful selection of images of you, your bump and your partner glowing with love and excitement as you await your baby’s arrival.
How long do sessions last?
Maternity sessions last for 90 minutes, studio sessions may have professional hair and make up added. To get the very best light of the day it’s vital that we shoot either at sunrise or sunset.
What would you class your style of photography as?
Images that make you feel something.
What is your studio like?
My studio is a little south of Guildford in Surrey which is where I shoot newborns, and portraits. It is styled with unique vintage furnishings to suit the session, a calm and safe space to bring your newborn or relax and enjoy your creative portrait session. This is also where I have an outdoor studio, private land where I can shoot outdoor family and couples sessions. The studio is also open to clients who wish to see the products I offer first hand.
What about the weather?
Most types of weather won’t stop me shooting but if the forecast is consistently not great, we’ll make a call the day before and reschedule.
Will you help me with what to wear?
Of course, this is one of the most important elements of your session. I am constantly adding to my client wardrobe, a collection of feminine dresses and skirts that I know will photograph well that you are very welcome to borrow for your session. We’ll also chat about what works for your session taking into consideration the location, season etc. I am available to you via text, email or WhatsApp to look at various options and piece together your outfits.
I feel very self conscious in front of the camera, will your sessions still work for me?
How long will I have to wait to see my photos?
What printed products do you offer?
I love seeing your photos in print and only use the very best print labs for my products. I offer stunning lay flat albums with incredible matte paper and bespoke covers as well as framed prints, handmade by my local framer. I also offer a scrumptious vintage style solid wood print box to keep your memories safe. Do ask for more information, if you’d like something else, I can probably source it for you.
