THE MATERNITY SHOOT EXPERIENCE
Getting the perfect pregnancy photographs to celebrate this amazing period of your life isn’t only about my ability as a photographer. To get that perfect shot, you need to enjoy the experience.
My Kew Road Studio in Richmond has been created to allow you an escape. Don’t think of your photography session as anything but an indulgence. Step inside, leave the world behind and spend some time connecting and reflecting on the experience you are going through. I know it doesn’t always feel like it at the time, but pregnancy really is fleeting. So many of us don’t get a chance to celebrate the miracle of creating another life. This is that chance. My studio is a little pod where you can relax and feel completely at home. It’s my studio, but during the time of your shoot, it’s your space.
How should you prepare for your maternity shoot?
Some clients arrive with a very clear idea of the kind of shot they want. Others need a helping hand to understand the options. I am completely comfortable to with either approach. Having photographed hundreds of bumps and bellies, I have a lot of experience in the different choices we can make to deliver the best shot for you. The first part of the session is a relaxed discussion about what you want from the shoot, and any ideas you have in mind. We can start this process on the phone or on email. The internet is a treasure trove of when it comes to finding inspiration. Whilst I welcome these visual guides, I always urge clients not to fixate on replicating an exact image. The eventual choices we make need to be right for you and your body. Come inspired, come with references, but you will get a much better result if you also come with an open mind.
There are some key decisions we will need to make before you arrive for your session. Are you going to be shot alone, with a partner, or even with other children? Do you want a to use a specific shooting technique, like a milk bath to add drama to your shot? Do you want to shoot in the studio, outdoor or at home?
