For the visually intelligent expectant parents, a Fine Art Maternity Portrait Session.
Pregnancy is the most special and unique time in your life and my aim is to capture the beauty of your pregnant body through timeless works of art.
My maternity photography style is elegant, classic and timeless. As a maternity photographer, I loves photos that are simple and clean. View my Portfolio of maternity photography and I think you’ll agree the images I like to take will stand the test of time. I have over 12 years experience at posing and lighting the pregnant form to make you look amazing and have fun at the same time.
Where and how long?
Taken in my beautiful newly appointed West London Studio, Studio Location, easily accessible from the Piccadilly line tube (2 mins walk) or few mins from M4 and M40 motorways and on street parking if you’re driving. The shoots last no more than 1.5 hrs from which you will be able to preview online up to 40 finished images from which to make your selection.
What do I need to bring?
I provide a beautiful selection of materials to use in the shoot as well as skirts and shirts so you really don’t need to bring any clothing. It is advisable to bring with you black, nude and white pants and if you have one a strapless nude bra, but make sure the underwear you wear on the morning of the shoot is not too tight so as to leave marks. You are very welcome to bring with you any clothing you would like to use or props such as hats or jewellery which will add your own touch to the images.
Do I have to take my clothes off?
Not at all, this shoot is for you and as such I will do what you are comfortable with. We will have a chat at the start of the shoot so I know what you’re wanting in terms of style and we will work with your preferences with regards to nudity. Most of my clients like do decide to have some nude or semi nude shots simply because they look amazing..though I never do shots where you are able to see nipples or the pubic area, so rest assured I will preserve your dignity at all times. Most of the time you will be using materials or arms and posing to cover up.
Yes I will retouch the images in the editing process so that they are ready to print. Once you have selected your preferred shots I will then do a skin retouch and pin point check. I want you to be happy with your portraits so I can take into consideration any issues you may have with your body, though I will not over airbrush images as I want them to look natural.
When is best to do the shoot?
The best time to have a shoot is when you are between 32 and 36 weeks pregnant although twins pregnancies should be done earlier and shoots can be done upto the due date if you’re happy to do so.
How much will it cost me?
My Pregnancy shoots cost £520 made up of a session fee of £170 (payable as a deposit) and a package price of £350 which includes 5 fully edited digital images (high resolution) and 5 stunning fine art prints of those images, ready to frame. You are welcome to upgrade your package once you have seen the images. I also offer exquisite hand made leather albums of varying sizes to create a family heirloom.
The Studio and Me..
