MATERNITY BUMP PHOTOGRAPHY
Being pregnant is magical. Your body is growing and caring for a brand new, unique little person! What better way to celebrate and capture this amazing moment than with some beautiful portraits that really show off your bump?
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION?
My maternity photo sessions are intended to feel calm and relaxed at all times. I encourage my mums-to-be to embrace the beauty of their bumps and enjoy showing them off. The poses and gowns I use are thoughtfully planned to feel comfortable and flatter and to show the connection between you and your baby.
WHERE DOES THE BUMP PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
Maternity sessions last around 1 hour and usually take place in the comfort of our lovely private studio in Market Weighton. Visits are by appointment only so there's no chance of you being disturbed during the shoot.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I provide the maternity gowns for the photoshoot so you don't need to buy anything specially for the shoot. The maternity gowns I use are very flattering. They are made with lace and chiffon and are semi-transparent so I suggest wearing your good undies as they will be visible.
It's also a nice idea to treat yourself to a manicure before the session as your hands will feature in many of the photos, plus it's a great excuse for a little pampering!
If you are feeling brave we can also include some beautiful 'nude' images (you can leave your undies on, but we will position your body and use some clever editing so you appear nude), but this is entirely up to you.
CAN I HAVE SOME PHOTOS WITH MY PARTNER/CHILDREN?
Of course! I love to include the family in some of the photos too, after all they are also a huge part of your pregnancy.
FOLLOWING YOUR SESSION
I know you will be eager to see the images from your session, so I usually post a sneak peek on our Facebook page within a week of the shoot (or I can email it to you if you don't use Facebook).
We will arrange your viewing and ordering appointment for approximately 2-3 weeks after your session for you to select which digital images you would like to keep and any printed products you may wish to purchase. I work with some of the world’s best suppliers, to offer a selection of beautiful, hand-crafted options for displaying your favourite images, including mounted prints, frames, bamboo panels and albums.
There will also be an opportunity to upgrade to include a newborn photo session, in which case you will receive the full set of final digital images from your maternity session on the USB in your welcome pack.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION?
Ideally your maternity session will be scheduled around 30-34 weeks into your pregnancy. Your belly is lovely and rounded by this time but you are not feeling too uncomfortable to enjoy your bump photo shoot.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
My maternity photo session fee is £100, and includes the 1 hour photoshoot.
Following the photoshoot, we will arrange your viewing session so you can choose how to display your final images from our beautiful product options including framed prints, bamboo panels, mounted prints and albums. For a copy of my maternity price-list, please email me or text 'BUMP' followed by your email address to 0779 598 1540.
WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?
Email me or text 'Bump' followed by your email address to 0779 598 1540 and I will email you a copy of my pricelist.
The session fee is £100 and is payable at the time of booking to reserve your slot in my diary.
DO YOU OFFER GIFT VOUCHERS?
A maternity session makes the perfect gift for an anniversary, Christmas or birthday, or just a lovely treat for your partner. We can also add gift vouchers in any amount over £20 to be put towards any of our products. Please drop me an email with your individual request.
