How does my maternity session work?

How it works

We will book your viewing appointment around 7 days after your photography session. This will be your chance to see your beautiful images, fully retouched and ready for you to view. We will watch a slideshow of your images and help you choose your Artwork to enjoy!

Answers:

We have a few different dresses and materials that are available for you to use during your maternity session if you would like. Around four weeks before your photography session we will arrange a call where we will discuss and plan the outfits we will use during your photoshoot. These can be our dresses and fabrics, your outfits from your own wardrobe or a mixture of the two.

Before your photography session we will discuss with you the outfits you are thinking of bringing and also the level of undress that you feel comfortable with during the session. We want you to feel completely relaxed and comfortable during your photography session and so will support you every step of the way.

Do I bring my own clothes?

Answers:

Your maternity photography session is your opportunity to pamper yourself before your baby is born. It is a celebration of you and the miracle of the precious new life growing within! We thoroughly recommend taking the opportunity to really pamper yourself. We can highly recommend a couple of professional Hair and Make Up Artists who we work with on a regular basis. Or, if you would prefer, you can hire your own and they are very welcome to come and help you get ready in our home studio.

If you would like to use one of our recommended Make Up Artists, let us know and we will arrange it for you. It will cost an additional £65 to cover your hair and make up. This also includes them being around for the whole of your photography session to ensure that you look your beautiful best for the whole session.

Answers:

It is best to book your maternity session as soon as you decide that you would like one! The ideal time to photograph your beautiful bump is between 32 and 35 weeks pregnant. The sooner we are able to book this session in the diary, the sooner you have something to look forward to and the more flexible we are able to be with our availability. Most of our mums book in at around their 20 week scan when they book their newborn session.

Answers:

Our maternity photography experience lasts around 90 minutes, but we allow for two hours in the studio diary. This gives us plenty of time for a few different outfit changes and for you to settle in to the session. If you are having hair and make up done before the session, we will book this in 1 hour before the photography session is due to start.

Answers:

Yes! We love to incorporate your special props into our sessions. We always encourage you to bring along an ultrasound image of your baby (preferably in a small frame) and some cute little booties or shoes. You could also bring a special soft toy or newborn outfit that you would love included in your photographs.

If you are having an outdoor maternity session and know the gender of your baby, you might like to bring along some colour coded helium balloons!

Answers:

The majority of our maternity photography sessions take place in our home studio, just outside of Bath in Peasedown St John.

However, if you would prefer your session to take place outside, in a location of your choice, do let us know! We love photographing outside in the natural light just as much as indoors. We will travel up to 15 miles included in your session fee (additional travel is charged at 45p per mile). If you have a special location in mind, just let us know.

Answers:

We will book your maternity session to take place between weeks 32 and 35 of your pregnancy. Ideally your maternity session will take place on a weekday in the afternoon but we know that this isn't always possible. We do have some flexibility around evenings and weekends but these do get booked up pretty quickly so do give us a call!
