Your Maternity Photography Experience session fee is just £95, a special offer reduced from £145, designed to make this beautiful experience accessible to you.
We'll be scheduling your viewing appointment approximately 7 days after your photography session. This is the moment when you'll get to lay your eyes on your exquisite images, fully retouched and ready for your viewing pleasure. We'll make it a special occasion, starting with a heartwarming slideshow of your images. During this appointment, we'll assist you in selecting the perfect Artwork to cherish and enjoy.
The moment has arrived! When you step into our studio for your photography session, you'll find a delightful spread of drinks and snacks to savor. We'll take our time and ensure that the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. Throughout the session, we'll provide gentle guidance through a variety of poses, always prioritizing your comfort and ensuring you feel completely at ease in front of the camera.
About four weeks prior to your scheduled photography session, we'll set up a call to have an extensive discussion about your shoot. During this conversation, we'll go over all the details, from planning your outfits to coordinating hair and makeup, and we'll be available to address any questions or thoughts you might have. We're here to ensure that everything is perfectly aligned for your maternity photoshoot.
When you secure your due date in our studio diary, we'll also reserve a spot for your maternity photoshoot. Typically, we schedule this session for when you're approximately 32-35 weeks pregnant. However, if your schedule necessitates a different timeframe, rest assured that we'll work together to find a date that suits you perfectly. Your comfort and convenience are our top priorities.
Exciting times indeed! Shortly after booking, keep an eye out for your eagerly anticipated welcome pack, accompanied by a special little gift. We encourage you to dive into the contents and take a thorough read. If any questions arise, don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're here to ensure that your experience is nothing short of amazing.
Ready to embark on this beautiful Maternity Photography Experience? Simply complete the contact form below, sharing your due date and contact details, and Heidi will reach out to you with haste. To ensure that each and every client receives our undivided attention and a premium, personalized service, we only accept a limited number of due dates each month. We can't wait to connect with you and capture this incredible journey.
Booking your maternity session as early as you decide you'd like one is highly recommended! The sweet spot for capturing your beautiful bump is typically between 32 and 35 weeks of pregnancy. The earlier we secure this session in the diary, the more flexibility we have with our availability, and it gives you something wonderful to look forward to. Many of our expectant mothers choose to book their maternity session around their 20-week scan, coinciding with their newborn session booking.
Our maternity photography experience is designed to last approximately 90 minutes, although we allocate two hours in our studio diary for added flexibility. This extended time frame allows for multiple outfit changes and ensures that you can settle in comfortably during the session. For those opting for hair and makeup services, we'll schedule these to begin one hour before the photography session is set to start, guaranteeing that you look and feel your absolute best for your maternity shoot.
We wholeheartedly welcome the inclusion of family members in your maternity session, and we're more than delighted to encourage partners and children to join in the celebration. Our standard maternity session accommodates a maximum of 6 people. If you desire to include more than 6 individuals in your session, please feel free to reach out to us, and we can discuss pricing options tailored to your needs.
On the other hand, if you prefer an intimate experience, where it's just you and your beautiful bump, please don't hesitate to let us know. Our intimate maternity photography experience is a splendid celebration of you and the miracle of pregnancy.
We offer a variety of dresses and materials for your use during your maternity session, should you wish to take advantage of them. About four weeks before your scheduled photography session, we'll set up a call to discuss and plan the outfits that will be used during your photoshoot. These can include our dresses and fabrics, outfits from your personal wardrobe, or even a combination of both.
Before your photography session, we'll have a conversation with you about the outfits you're considering bringing and your comfort level regarding the amount of undress during the session. Our primary aim is to ensure that you feel completely relaxed and at ease throughout your photography session, and we'll provide all the support and guidance you need along the way.
Your maternity photography session is an opportunity to indulge and celebrate yourself, as well as the miraculous new life blossoming within. We wholeheartedly encourage you to embrace this moment of pampering. We have a couple of talented professional Hair and Makeup Artists whom we collaborate with regularly and can confidently recommend. Alternatively, if you have a preferred artist in mind, they are more than welcome to join you at our home studio to help you get ready.
Should you choose to use one of our recommended Makeup Artists, simply let us know, and we will make the arrangements for you. There is an additional cost of £100 to cover both your hair and makeup. This fee also includes their presence throughout the entire photography session, ensuring that you radiate beauty and confidence from start to finish.
Absolutely! We adore the idea of including your special props in our sessions. We wholeheartedly encourage you to bring along meaningful items, such as an ultrasound image of your baby (ideally in a small frame) and adorable little booties or shoes. Additionally, you can consider bringing a cherished soft toy or a tiny newborn outfit that you'd like to feature in your photographs.
For those opting for an outdoor maternity session and who happen to know the gender of their baby, the idea of bringing color-coded helium balloons is splendid! These thoughtful touches can add an extra layer of personalization and sentiment to your maternity session.
Most of our maternity photography sessions are conducted in our cosy studio, conveniently located just outside Bath Radstock. It provides a comfortable and controlled environment for capturing beautiful images.
However, if you have a preference for an outdoor session in a location of your choosing, please don't hesitate to inform us! We have a genuine fondness for outdoor photography in natural light and are more than happy to accommodate your request. We offer complimentary travel within a 15-mile radius of our studio (additional travel is charged at 45p per mile). Should you have a specific location in mind, kindly share your thoughts with us, and we'll work together to make it happen.
We'll schedule your maternity session to occur between weeks 32 and 35 of your pregnancy. Typically, these sessions are booked for weekday afternoons, but we understand that this may not always be feasible. We do offer some flexibility with evening and weekend slots, although these tend to fill up swiftly. If you're interested in those time slots, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us promptly to secure your preferred session time.
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.
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.
It is lovely to include family members in your maternity session and we are always happy to encourage partners and children to take part. Your maternity session will allow for a maximum of 6 people. If you would like more than 6 people to be included in your session this will be priced upon request.
Alternatively, if you would like your maternity session to be just for you and your bump, don't hesitate to let us know. Our intimate photography experience is a beautiful celebration of you and your pregnancy.
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.
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.
Yes! We love to incorporate your special props into our sessions.

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.
We will book your maternity session to take place between weeks 32 and 35 of your pregnancy.
