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!
‘The days are long, but the years are short’ Gretchen Rubin
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 professionally photographed whilst pregnant by 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 four years later!
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
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!
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. Please note that studio gowns cannot be used outdoors due to the delicate nature of the fabrics.
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!
Unlike most photographers, I don’t charge for the shoot itself. It is entirely free to attend the shoot and have pictures taken. At no time are you are under any obligation to purchase a single image if you don’t wish to, in that case the shoot will have cost you nothing.
£99 non refundable retainer required in order to secure your booking. This will be deducted from your final order.
Digital and print packages ideal for sharing with family.
A range of professional print products are also available to order. Custom sizing available.
If you have a specific space you would like to display your images in we will work together to find the perfect piece for your home.

WHEN IS BEST FOR MATERNITY PHOTOS?
It is best to do this kind of session when you are around 30-34 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
