When you’ve booked a maternity photo shoot, you’re almost certain to be flicking through Google or Pinterest to get some ideas of what you might like.

When you do, you’ll see lots of photos both in the studio and outdoors or pregnant people in long flowing maternity dresses.  They are beautiful and make for stunning images but they’re obviously not part of anyone’s day to day maternity wardrobe!

For that reason, I have a range of maternity photo shoot dresses that you are welcome to include in your session when you visit the studio.  They are all designed to flatter your shape and of course photograph beautifully.

I recommend choosing two for your session – you’ll see them all when you get your pre-session options form the day before you visit.  My studio is split into two halves – one dark background and one light background so we can create a variety of maternity images.  For that reason, it’s a great idea to pick one light dress and one dark dress but there’s no hard and fast rules, just pick what you love.

For the dress that looks like it is floating in mid air in the photo, you just need to know that we need someone else with you at the session to make that happen so if that’s the dress you love, don’t come alone!

Maternity Photography

I recommend coming for your maternity shoot when you are between 32 – 36 weeks pregnant so you have plenty of bump to show but you’re not getting too uncomfortable (also in case your baby decides to make an early appearance).  My maternity shoots cost £95 and include your three favourite digital images (you’re also welcome to borrow any of my gorgeous maternity photo shoot dresses while you’re in the studio).  You select your pictures and order any more that you would like directly from your online gallery, there’s no sales or viewing session to attend.
