London Maternity Photography: Why You Need A Maternity Photography Session


I get it, it feels weird to have a photography session devoted entirely to you, it feels weird to flaunt your belly like a model. Yet, I also see the value in embracing it and capturing a time you may only experience once or a few times in your whole life.

If your gripe is that a maternity session feels self-indulgent or like all the attention is on you, make it a family session! I love capturing natural outdoor images of a mum and dad to be and catch those amazing moments between them as it truly sinks in that “this is it” and their are lives are about to dramatically change forever. A maternity session is the last time to capture just the two of you before baby arrives and embrace all those butterflies about being new parents! Also, your body as a pregnant mum to be, is doing something miraculous. You are growing a little life inside of you and why not record that moment in time? Why not glorify the amazing thing your body is doing? It is truly better than those pictures I see on social media of bump selfies in front of a mirror! Why not create art instead of taking selfies that you probably won’t print or will lose on your phone.

If you’re looking for something more natural and less cheesy, an outdoor maternity session is the way to go! We can capture you walking hand in hand, you can bring your dogs and we can just have fun while walking through the woods.

Did you know I offer mini maternity sessions? As I’ve been doing this over 5 years, I do maternity sessions in an hour. An hour is all we need to create magical images of you, your partner and your bump!
