Pregnancy is such an incredible time, you're bringing a tiny little human in to the world, and even though nine months can seem like a lifetime in the moment, it's gone within a blink of an eye. It's incredibly important to capture those moments when your baby has just arrived, but it's so equally important to capture those moments whilst they're growing. Even though I haven't myself had a little one, family and friends who haven't had a maternity shoot have regretted this missed opportunity so much. Also, I can imagine it amazing to savor those rare moments between you and your partner before that changes for a lifetime!
“What can I say!
I am extremely passionate about photos, they are so important to me and right from the start I knew that was the case for Lucy too. She understood the importance of capturing a special memory. She was extremely easy to work with and has a real talent for photography. We were thrilled with our pictures and honestly can't thank Lucy enough for her time and effort! The photos are beyond stunning!.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Where should we go?
I love to ask you where your favourite locations are as a family, most of the time this makes for great photos and your kids already love it. However, if that's not applicable I have a list of locations that are lovely which you can have a read through.
What happens if it rain?
Before your shoot I'll be keeping a watchful eye on the weather, then we can make a decision before the day. For any reason it changes in the day (I mean we live in the UK, it's likely) then I'm more than happy to rebook when possible.
When should we have the shoot?
In my opinion I've found it's best to shoot between 25-30 weeks pregnancy . This way we aren't pushing our luck that much, and you will hopefully have your photos before baby arrives.
What should we wear?
Your clothing choices will make a massive change to your photos, but please don't worry! I can give you suggestions before your shoot to make sure you're comfortable but looking amazing!
What time of day is best?
Lighting is crucial for outdoor shoots! More so than you'd realise, therefore the best time of day is as close to sunrise or sunset as possible. The lighting is so much softer, you won't be squinting or have weird shadows on your face; plus your photos look so much better! I understand this isn't always possible for certain families, therefore I'm more than happy to discuss your situation and see what's best for you.
