    What to wear?

    Styling is a major element for timeless, Maternity Photography. In the studio, we have a full range of gorgeous maternity wraps, luxury fabrics, organzas, Marino wool, and fabrics that will flatter your beautiful curves. We will work with you and your existing Maternity wardrobe to ensure you feel comfortable and fantastic. For outdoors sessions, we recommend you go for outfits that accentuate your shape. When you book, we will send you your Welcome Pack that will provide you with lots of inspiration.

    Artistically edited

    Creating beautiful artistic images takes time! But you relax, it will be worth the wait. For every minute we spend together with you at your session, we will spend hours more behind the scenes to make sure your portraits look exceptional. After your Maternity Photography Session, we carefully evaluate all the images and select the best — based on expression, emotional, lighting, technical accuracy, background, and overall artistic appeal. These selected images are then hand edited in color and black & white. We part particular attention to removing minor blemishes, stretch marks, and bruises to make sure you look your very best.

    Custom Artwork

    We believe in having beautiful artwork for your home in addition to digital files for archiving. This artwork that you hang on the wall in your home, and you will pass by it every day on your way to work or your way to bed, and it gives you a lift, recreating the emotion of a particular time in your families life. You might move house; you might redecorate the room, but we guarantee you will continue to get joy from this art for the rest of your life. It will become more than a photograph; it will be an heirloom that will become part of your family's story for this generation and many more to come. We also offer you a variety of the highest quality products, from keepsake albums to custom wall art displays to complement your home decor. Bringing a new life into this world is a historic occasion and will be one of the most miraculous events in your life.
