You & Your Bump
Captured in a creative, modern & free-spirited manner.
MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER SURREY
Pregnancy can be a wild ride. Mothers-to-be are often doing all sorts behind-the-scenes preparing for their baby’s arrival, not to mention re-learning how on earth their bodies work as it slowly shifts into nurturing a whole new life force. How amazing is that?
This is just the beginning of your new chapter as a mum and what better way to celebrate your incredible body than by capturing it in all its glory. (yes, stretch marks and all).
While it can be a time of discomfort, bloatedness and fatigue from growing a tiny being, it’s also such an amazing opportunity to capture just how empowering and immensely surreal becoming a mother can be.
We’d love for you to look back on these photos and feel proud of who you are as a woman and to have special images to share with your little one when they grow up.
DURING A MOTHERHOOD SESSION?
Our motherhood sessions are laid-back, creative and relaxed. We want you to feel comfortable with us and to have the best experience possible. Our sessions take place outdoors (we can decide where together) or at your home if you’d love a more interiors-based, intimate feel. This session is shot by one photographer which will be Celle.
We’ll meet at our destination and shoot in and around the space. If we’re outside, we do love to go for a wonder so make sure to wear beautiful but comfy outfits! Don’t worry, we’ll make sure to talk through what types of clothing photograph well for what you’re envisioning. While we love candid photos, there will be moments where we give you cues, prompts and poses but it will remain a relaxed experience focused on getting you at your best.
Partners are more than welcome to join you and your lovely bump so just let us know if you’d like them there too.
If you’d like to explore semi-nude, or nude photos, we can absolutely do so and rest assured it will be done in a sensitive, tasteful and respectful manner.
Sessions last between 1h-1.5h and take place during either sunset or sunrise hours.
- A personal, curated session clothing mood-board based on your vision for the shoot.
- One photographer providing 1h-1.5h photography coverage.
- 30+ fully edited high-resolution images delivered via a private digital gallery within 3-4 weeks.
- Printing rights.
- Travel within London and home county venues within 1h30 drive included.
- Optional call to brainstorm creative /non-conventional shoot ideas.
These sessions are suitable for expectant mums between 28-36 weeks. Partners are more than welcome to join the session at no extra charge.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is This A Typical Maternity Shoot?
Our maternity photography style is non-traditional, relaxed and creative by nature and often set in nature. If you’re looking for photoshopped and airbrushed work at high-end studios, we won’t be the right fit for you. We do accept natural-light studio sessions and are happy to offer that as an option for an additional fee.
I'm Insecure & Unconfident About How I Look In Photos.
Beautiful friend, we know this feeling. We promise you that our goal is to show you and your beautiful bump at your best, looking glorious, joyful and powerful. We know it’s easier said than done but try not to worry and fully trust that we’re here to show your gorgeous self. It might feel daunting but we promise you won’t regret it. We’ll guide you through every step of the way but of course, if you have any specific concerns, we can talk it over before our session.
Do You Work On Weekends?
Unfortunately no, as we are also wedding photographers! We book up very quickly and so have limited availability. We accept Motherhood Session bookings from after your 20-week scan so if you're keen to have us photograph you, please do message us as soon as possible.
What Times Do You Shoot?
Either sunrise or sunset are the best times for light. This also depends on the time of year, of course. We love the soft glow the sun can bring so we shoot either an hour or so before sunset or, an hour prior to sunrise. If you've got something different or specific in mind, please detail it in your enquiry form!
What Do I Wear?
Both comfort and style is key for our sessions. We’ll send over a Pinterest board for overall inspo as we discuss your plans and once we’ve got an idea of what you’re up for, we’ll send your personal mood-board based on what you’d like to do on the day. Anything that flows like bohemian gowns are always perfect as they flatter and enhance that gorgeous bump. We’re also happy to photograph as much skin as you’re comfortable showing. Just let us know and we can make a plan.
Do You Shoot Outdoors All Year Round?
Our sessions start around the beginning of April and end mid-October. We can also do natural-light studio sessions if that’s more up your street but comes at an extra cost. Please do detail that in your email to us.
Do I Have To Bring Anything?
We can discuss this when creating your session moodboard, but feel free to bring any appropriate props in mind. Blankets, a wild bouquet, a flower crown, or even a change of clothes.
After Our Session, What Happens Next?
After our time together, we’ll send you your full online gallery within the next 3-4 weeks. Option to print your photos will be available in your gallery should you wish to do so.
Ok, I'm Sold! How Do I Book You?
Yay! We’re delighted to hear it! All you need to do is get in touch via our enquiry form and we’ll aim to get back to you as soon as we can with any further info you need. Once we’ve agreed on a date, and we’ve confirmed our availability, we’ll send over your session contract and a £200 deposit invoice. Once both bits are done, you’re officially booked in. Please note that dates can’t be held without both being completed.
Are you ready?
We’d love nothing more than for this to be a collaborative experience, tailoring your session to whatever represents you best. Our shoots can be as creative and artistic as you’d like. We’d love to hear about any concepts you might like, help you source dried bouquets, flower crowns or even do something unique like floral milk baths.
Whatever you’ve got in mind, we cannot wait to hear from you and capture you and your bump in this new chapter of life.
