When looking into documenting this beautiful time in your life, consider booking a maternity and newborn photography package. This can not only save you some money, but add consistency to your images by using the same photographer for both sessions.
Pregnancy is an amazing time in your life. It’s a time to celebrate growing a tiny human. You are developing a bond with your baby, witnessing the changes in your body, and realizing strength you never knew you had.
Very few women feel confident during this time, which is why many decide not to have maternity photos taken. As a professional photographer, it is my job to make you feel and look your best. This is done with experience in posing, knowing the best angles to photograph expectant mothers, knowledge in lighting, and lastly, editing in a way that shows you at your best.
Maternity photographs are not only for you to look back on and remember this time, but also an heirloom for your children, their children and generations. Some of my favourite photos of my own mother are from when she was expecting – the glow in her cheeks, her hand placed subconsciously cradling me inside her tummy.
When booking a newborn photography session with a maternity photo shoot, you save on whichever newborn session you choose. You also have the benefit of splitting the number of images included in your packages over the two sessions.
Having consistent images from your maternity to your newborn session creates beautiful artwork for your walls and albums. Styles vary between photographers, so make sure to LOVE the work of the photographer you choose.
