MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY

Pregnancy is such an exciting time for your family, I am blessed to be welcomed into your bubble for a short while to celebrate it!

I truly believe that every woman should have beautiful portraits of her pregnancy to not only look back on when your child has grown but also to share with them. My own children love to see photos of my pregnant belly and I bet yours will too!

EVERY MILESTONE

CAPTURED

If you are unsure what sort of images you would like I am always happy to chat things through before you even book your maternity photoshoot. I myself have been photographed whilst pregnant by photographer friends and while I tend to prefer to stay behind the camera I am so glad I did it and have those images to treasure. In fact I have several on display in the house and they still make me miss my bump!

If you already have older children then an outdoor maternity photoshoot is a great way to include them in the session. This can involve getting dressed up in a beautiful gown or keeping it much more simple in your usual family style. 

There is no right or wrong way to document your pregnancy so I will work with you and your style to ensure you have gorgeous maternity images that you will treasure forever and your baby will be able to look back on for years to come.

YOUR BUMP STYLE

STUDIO SESSIONS

Choose from my selection of maternity gowns, keep it casual in your own clothing or bare that beautiful bump for those gorgeous Vanity Fair style glamour shots!

OUTDOOR SESSIONS

If you prefer a more informal portrait we can choose a beautiful outdoor location. Outdoor sessions are ideal if you wish to include your partner or older siblings.

 

What our customers say

After looking at lots of photographers I finally chose Beautiful Bairns Photography for my maternity & newborn photoshoots. I decided instead of having a pretty dress maternity shoot we would do a semi nude/artistic take on it and really focus on the beauty of the bump. The ideas and research that came from Rachael made me really confident in my choice of photgraphy style. I wanted the focus to be on how beautiful the pregnant body is and that is exactly what I feel we captured. I felt gorgeous and confident which was massively down to Rachael. When I arrived it was just like meeting up with a friend. We chatted all through the shoot and at no point did I feel uncomfortable. I am so happy with the style and with my choice to go with Beautiful Bairns photography!

WHEN IS BEST FOR MATERNITY PHOTOS?

 It is best to do this kind of session when you are around 32-34 weeks. We will chat over a cuppa and I will make you feel utterly fantastic! As my diary fills quickly its best to book before you are 24 weeks pregnant so you will have a range of dates and times to choose from

DO YOU PROVIDE DRESSES?
Yes! I have a collection of stunning gowns and fabrics at the studio for you to choose from. Please note due to the delicate nature of some dresses they cannot be used for outdoor sessions.
DO I HAVE TO GET NAKED?
Of course not! But I strive to make sure every woman feels like a GODDESS during their session and that you leave with more confidence and feeling more empowered than when you arrived! So if after a few outfit changes you want to show more skin we can do that too! All images are tasteful and created for you as a stunning reminder of this amazing time.
CAN MY PARTNER JOIN IN?
Yes of course! If you’d like to capture couple shots just let me know and I can advise on clothing choices for your partner, just let me know their gender and your preferred style!
CAN OLDER SIBLINGS JOIN IN?
Yes of course! This is an exciting time for all the family. Just let me know in advance and we can chat over styling and options for hair etc.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
If you are going to be a single parent or your partner is unable to come along on the day please do bring a close friend/mum/sister along to join the fun! They will help you to relax, giggle, tell you how gorgeous you are and can even join in by helping with some fabric tossing for those gorgeous semi nude power shots!
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Your make up bag is great to bring along for touch ups and changing your look to suit different outfits. I will provide nipple covers for you to use (and keep!) so no need to bring anything unless you have a dress/outfit/prop you want to incorporate into your images.
