PREGNANCY PHOTOSHOOTS IN northamptonshire AND BEYOND
GLAMOROUS, ELEGANT PORTRAITS OF THE LATTER STAGES OF YOUR PREGNANCY
However unlikely it may sound, you CAN feel glamorous at eight months pregnant (trust me, it can be done!) After their pregnancy photoshoot and being pampered a little, clients often leave having had much more fun than expected, and telling me they felt like a film star for the afternoon!
A pregnancy photo shoot captures the intimate and tender memories of this remarkable time of your life. In just a few short weeks, you’ll look back at your pregnancy portraits and be astonished that your body could do all this.
Here's what you need to know
That depends on whether you choose a studio photoshoot, or a location photoshoot.
Come to my gorgeous studio in Ringstead, Northamptonshire. Here you'll have use of the full studio and all of my props and fabrics.
Alternatively, I can come to you. Currently I'm covering all areas of London, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. I'll bring a mini-studio with me so we can get some studio portraits. Plus there's the option of some lifestyle portraits using your home and garden as the backdrop. Also, (subject to our gorgeous British weather) we may be able to pop to a local park if you don't have any outside space.
We usually recommend a session between 4 - 5 weeks before your due date. Everybody is different though and if that feels a bit too late, we can certainly do it earlier. It’s a balance between leaving it late enough so that we’ve got a beautiful burgeoning bump to photograph and doing it early enough so that you can take the session in your stride and enjoy it.
That’s an easy one - book as early as possible. We only do a maximum of 3 sessions per week so that we can always accommodate those teeny tiny newborn babies, whether they arrive early or late. Because of this, availability is always limited.
We allow up to two hours in the studio for a maternity session. It usually doesn’t take this long. There will be plenty of time for outfit changes, different lighting set ups and different poses.
Absolutely! This is an important time for all of the family - waiting to welcome a new addition. Provided you can persuade your other half to be in some of the pictures, I promise to make him look cool, and not at all cheesey! As for siblings, well you'll see from some of the portraits here how charming the little ones look, getting excited about their new baby brother or sister!
We work to a 3-part process, which ensures that we build the shoot around your preferences and desires.
Firstly, we have a creative consultation, usually by phone, or zoom. It usually takes around 30 minutes. This is so we can design your photo shoot in advance, to get the best possible results for you. We’ll discuss wardrobe choices, styling, themes and more. You’ll feel confident in knowing how to get the most out of your time with us.
Secondly, there's the actual photoshoot. This usually takes up to 2 hours in the studio and half a day on location. A fun, relaxing and memorable experience for you and your family. We’ll create elegant maternity portraits you’ll treasure forever. You’ll get pampered and I promise you’ll have more fun than you’re expecting - honest!
Finally, there's the Ordering Appointment. This can happen at the studio, or by Zoom and usually takes about 45 minutes. Your ordering appointment is the culmiation of all our work together. You’ll see a movie of the very best of the portraits I've created for you. I am shamelessly out to impress you, so get ready to go “Wow!” (and make sure you've some tissues to hand - it can get emotional!)
Studio session fees are £49.
Location session fees are £295. £200 of this is redeemable against any order over £595.

You can find more details on our pricing page.
Your session fee covers our time for the 3-part process as described above - the creative consultation, the photoshoot and the ordering appointment. In addition it also includes all image editing. Products are not included with the session fee unless explicitly stated. For location sessions, delivery of products is also included.
Our product range represents the finest that the photographic industry has to offer. There are 3 main types of products:
- Wall hangings - framed and unframed
- Digital collections
For more details on these products check out our pricing page.
At your Ordering Appointment. After your photoshoot we'll need a few days to work some digital magic on your portraits. Your ordering appointment will be scheduled for a few days after your session. By then, we'll have edited the best of your portraits into a little video for you.
That depends on how many different portraits we create on the day. Usually you'll see 20 - 40 of the absolute best images from your session.
Products are ordered and paid for at your Ordering Appointment. Payment can be made by bank transfer or cash. A payment plan is available.
That depends on the type of product you've ordered. Digital collections can be turned around quite quickly (subject to your approval of your finished artwork) say, within 2 weeks from the date of your ordering appointment, or the completion of any payment plan. For wall hangings and books, allow up to 3 weeks from the date of your approval of finished artwork.
Just fill in the form below, and say in the message you're ready to book. We'll give you a call to discuss your requirements and our availability.
No problem at all. Just fill in the form below, and let us know what you need. If you just want a chat (to make sure I don't have 2 heads) and that I'm the right photographer for you, that's fine too!
For studio photoshoots, we'll work in line with the latest government regulations on social distancing and household mixing. So please discuss with us in advance if you want to bring somebody to the session in addition to your direct family members.
We take the risk presented by the Covid 19 virus very seriously. We want to keep you and ourselves safe. You will be required to sign and adhere to our Covid 19 working practices in advance of your session. You can see those here.
Should you need to reschedule your session, provided you let us know at least 48 hours before, your photoshoot can be rescheduled at no additional charge to you. Should you fail to give us 48 hours' notice, another session fee will become due. The exception to this is sickness.
If you, or any member of your party is ill on the day of your session (this includes pets) please DO NOT SOLDIER ON REGARDLESS! We will need to reschedule your session. Sick people or pets aren't going to be feeling (or therefore looking) their best, and we want to create a collection of portraits for you that you absolutely fall in love with. You will not be charged an additional session fee if you cancel because of illness on the morning of your photoshoot. Please just let me know as early as possible - even if it's 'too early'. This is particularly true of location shoots where it's best to catch me before I've packed up my car.
No problem at all! So many of my clients say that. I can promise you that you’ll have more fun and feel more comfortable than you’re expecting to. So you may surprise yourself by feeling more confident and really going for it! However you want to play it, you’re going to look stunning and have some gorgeous portraits at the end of it.
We DO! Why not head on over to our EXTRAS page and find out all about it.
