Below, I delve into why opting for a maternity photo session is a stellar idea, what to anticipate during the session, and why investing in this experience is a decision you won’t regret.

Why Choose A Maternity Photo Session

Uniqueness of a Maternity Photo Session

A maternity photo session isn’t just about striking a pose; it’s about capturing this beautiful phase in your life. These sessions focus on celebrating the tiny life growing within you. From showcasing your baby bump to highlighting the anticipation you’re both feeling right now, maternity photos freeze this special time together.

I love creating a personalised experience, tailoring each session to reflect your personality and style. Whether you envision an epic outdoor shoot or a snug indoor setting, I’m here to bring your vision to life, ensuring each session is as distinct as your journey to parenthood.

How I Capture Special Moments

My maternity photo sessions go beyond the traditional smile-and-click routine. I understand the importance of authenticity, and I excel at capturing those genuine, heartfelt moments. From the tender touch between parents-to-be to the shared laughter and giggles, my goal is to freeze these emotions in a frame, creating timeless memories.

I’m not just an expert in composition and lighting; I’m a storyteller, weaving the narrative of your pregnancy through each photograph. I believe in capturing the love, excitement, and anticipation, ensuring that every image tells a unique and heartwarming story.

The Experience of a Professional Photographer

Spring Maternity Photo Shoot Outdoors in Reading

Spring Maternity Photo Shoot Outdoors in Reading

An explosion of spring flowers, vibrant colours, and two excited parents to be. The perfect mix for a maternity photo shoot outdoors in some of the prettiest gardens in Reading. The timing of this session was planned around golden hour so we could take advantage of the low spring sunlight and a stunning sunset.

Embracing the Blooming Spring Gardens:

We started the photo shoot by walking through the gardens which led us to a large patch of cow parsley where mum decided to bare bump for a few photos amongst the delicate flowers. As the sun set, casting a warm glow across the gardens, the couple was surrounded by a sea of tall purple flowers. Against this pretty spring backdrop, mum’s baby bump took center stage as the couple messed around and giggled together.

A Hat from Mexico, a Turtle of Love:

Adding a touch of personality, mum brought along a gorgeous hat that she purchased during a trip to Mexico. This cool accessory added a stylish element to her outfits and now has me wanting to go to Mexico to buy one for myself! We also incorporated a knitted turtle, a special memento from the same trip where mum discovered she was pregnant. These meaningful additions infused the photo shoot with love, joy, and a touch of wanderlust.

Celebrating Love and Adventure:

This couples love story is a blend of shared adventures, laid-back living, and a deep love of board games. And while it might seem like a case of opposites attract (with dad at 6 foot 4 and mum at 5 foot 2!), they have similar energies and love spending time in each others company. Mum, an avid reader, and Dad, a passionate rugby fan, have built a life centered around travel, relaxation, and spending quality time together.

A Perfect Day in Their World:

Their perfect Saturday is a lazy morning in bed with freshly brewed coffee, followed by a walk outside, with a stop at a country pub for a pint (or two!). Returning home, they love firing up the barbecue, playing board games, listening to music, and enjoying a delicious dinner in their garden. Sounds pretty perfect to me!

If this sounds like you and you’re interested in a spring maternity photo shoot outdoors then contact me today and we can start planning your dream maternity shoot. Hope you enjoy this gallery as much as I have!

P.S. If you love mums maternity dresses you can buy the sage green tea dress from ASOS and the orange ditsy midi dress from Miss Selfridge (just size up a few sizes to fit over bump).

Embracing the Beauty of Winter on a Maternity Photo Shoot

Embracing the Beauty of Winter on a Maternity Photo Shoot

As a soon-to-be mum you might be slightly hesitant to book a maternity photoshoot in winter, thinking that the cold and gloomy weather won’t do justice to your beautiful bump. But fear not, because a winter outdoor maternity photoshoot could be the perfect choice for you! Here’s why:

  1. The Winter Landscape is Stunning
    There’s something magical about a winter backdrop, with its crisp air, frosty landscapes and barren trees. I loved all the colours of the browned ferns and crispy leaves in this recent maternity photoshoot in February. We were also blessed with a cloudy day that provided the perfect lighting for the photos. The cloudy sky acted as a giant light box, softening the light and creating a warm and cozy atmosphere.
  2. Embrace the Season
    Winter provides a chance to play with your wardrobe, layering up with cozy scarves, hats, and coats that will give lots of variety to your photos. Not to mention, winter clothes are super comfy when moving around on a photoshoot. So, pull out those boots (I love the ones this client chose to wear!) and scarves and lets create some stunning winter maternity photos. Check out my Pinterest board for lot’s of winter outfit inspiration.
  3. Avoid the Crowds
    Booking your maternity photoshoot in winter means you’ll have the great outdoors all to yourself! With fewer people around, every location will feel super secluded and the only thing that may interrupt us is the odd squirrel or robin. Plus, with the shorter days, there’s plenty of opportunity to catch that perfect winter sunset.
  4. Capturing a Moment in Time
    By taking maternity photos with a winter background, you’ll have a wonderful reminder of how far you’ve come when your baby is born in a different season. It’s a beautiful way to document your journey and provides a unique opportunity to look back on this fleeting moment in time. Plus, it’s a perfect excuse to get some fresh air and a hit of vitamin D before your little one arrives.

So, there you have it! Four great reasons why you should consider booking an outdoor maternity photoshoot in the winter. It’s a chance to capture some truly unique and memorable photos, play with winter fashion, avoid the crowds and enjoy some fresh air. Don’t let the colder weather deter you from capturing this special time in your life. Book that winter maternity photoshoot today!
