When a client receives their pregnancy portraits, the one one thing they always say is that they were nervous about the prospect of having their photograph taken, but they’re so happy that they did.
The human body is incredibly beautiful, especially when it’s in the extraordinary process of creating another human! However uncomfortable you may feel, we can work with clever positioning, light and clothing to capture you at your absolute best.
Most of my clients are photographed between the optimum window of 28-36 weeks when the bump is nice and round but they don’t feel too heavy. Having said that, I’ve worked with many women who are outside of this time-frame, so it’s very much your decision and depends totally on how you feel.
The shoot takes place in the comfort of your own home, which saves you traveling, can add to the sense of relaxation and gives us access to any props or outfits you might like to include. I also bring a sheer pashmina and a dress that you may like to use. I’ve worked in a a wide range of homes all over London, from tiny flats to huge houses, all we need are windows and natural light.
First we discuss your preferences and any ideas that you may have. Input from the client is key to creating images that are unique to you. The shoot usually lasts around and hour and a half and is so much fun. I love seeing clients nerves drop away as we explore available light and get into the rhythm of the shoot. Partners and children are always welcome, but I like to have some one to one time with you so that we can get into the flow.
Payment of £300 is taken on the day of the shoot. This is a flat fee that covers the home visit, the shoot, the edit and the images. Within a week I will send you two links, one to a minimum of 40 fully edited high resolution Jpeg files (for printing), and the other to low resolution files (for sharing), both for you to download, and an optional private online gallery that will last 30 days.
"I can honestly say I am in love with all of the pictures!! They have exceeded our expectations and we are over the moon about the results. Thank you for being such an amazing photographer, creating such beautiful memories that we will treasure for the rest of our lives." Marina and Stefano
