Timeless, maternity, baby and cake smash photography, covering Andover, Basingstoke, Newbury, Salisbury, Tidworth, Stockbridge, Southampton and surrounding areas of Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire

What to expect at your maternity photoshoot

My style is to take natural, timeless images of this wonderful time. I completely understand that a lot of people (myself included) do not like having their photo taken. I will make you feel relaxed and comfortable, helping with posing every part of you, to make you look amazing!

How & when to book

Book your maternity session for when you’re around 7-8 months pregnant, or later if your bump is small.  To book, please get in touch via my Contact Page to get the ball rolling. The session fee is payable on booking. This doesn’t include any photos, which can be purchased via a private online gallery, 1- 2 weeks after your photoshoot.

Where will the session take place?

Your maternity photoshoot will take place in my beautiful garden photography studio in Anna Valley, near Andover. You will find directions on my Contact Page.

How long will it take?

A mini maternity photoshoot is 30 minutes, with 2 outfit changes and 2 set ups. A full maternity photo session will take around one hour, maybe more, with multiple looks and set ups. 

You are welcome to bring your partner and children (or pets - our fur babies!) with you.

What should I bring with me?

My studio will be nice and warm, so wear layers, bring a drink and a snack too if you think you might need one.

What should I wear?

I provide a variety of flattering maternity dresses, bodysuits and fabrics to make you look awesome. You’re also more than welcome to bring your own outfits if you like. I don’t provide hair and make-up, so you might like to get this done professionally before you come, do it yourself, or come au naturel!

Wear skin coloured underwear, preferably with no VPL. Thongs are good for wearing under sheer fabrics, even if you don't like wearing them every day! You are welcome to pose with your bump exposed, completely covered or you can be completely naked - it's entirely up to you and the type of photos you prefer. You can even bring some special lingerie, if you like the maternity boudoir photoshoot look.

What if I am not feeling well?

Pregnancy brings all sorts of unusual feelings and emotions. If, for any reason, you are not feeling well, please let me know and we will reschedule your photoshoot. My diary is designed to be flexible, so please don't worry, I will be able to fit you in. I want you to be feeling as well as possible for your shoot, so you enjoy the experience and don't look back at the photos later and be reminded of how awful you felt!

I don't like having my photo taken

I have yet to meet a mum to be who doesn't have at least some reservation about having their photo taken. We are all so self critical. However, do remember that we are creating memories and keepsakes for you and your family, for now and for generations to come.  I can guarantee that you will look back on the photos in years to come and think how young and beautiful you look! And just imagine how your child will love these images of you and your bump!
