The beginning....​

The beginning....​

What better way to remember the wonder, the love, feelings and emotions of such a special time for your family, than a maternity shoot?

Love already connects you and your baby but during pregnancy you might not feel like yourself. There’s a lot of changes going on. Some of them chip on our self-confidence and play on our insecurities. There can be a sense of grief and a fear of the unknown…

However, pregnancy is also a time of anticipation, excitement, connection, strength, and empowerment. There’s the new sensation of stroking your belly, the kicks, the knowing you can do this…

I want you to remember all these feelings.

Pregnancy sessions are simple and done in a style that suits YOU! 

Shoots can either take place in my home-based studio (in Leigh on Sea, Essex) or in your preferred location. It’s a fun and relaxed photoshoot, and my goal is to capture those moments and real interactions that show the love you share with your partner, your unborn baby and as a growing family. This will be a no-stress photo shoot experience!

I would advise you to book maternity sessions in advance, ideally to take place between 32-38 weeks gestation.

Partners and your children are very welcome to take part in the photoshoot.
