Portraits of my journey as a mother

Self Portraits of my journey as a Mother The process of creating another human being truly is a miracle. Today, a few years older and with child in tow, I got in front of the camera again, to document my own journey. Contrary to these photos, I am not someone who manages to embrace pregnancy particularly…

Mark & Anna’s Maternity Shoot in Bridgetown

We got there finally! After postponing the Maternity shoot several times due to terrible weather and Anna thinking the baby was coming, Anna & Mark’s Maternity Shoot finally happened. And it was worth the wait. Being early evening on a sunny spring day, the light was beautiful. Love love love these pics. The connection between…

Maria’s Maternity Shoot – Part 2

Maria’s Maternity Shoot – Part 2

This is the second half of the maternity shoot which I did yesterday. In contrast to the studio lighting and the black background, I braved a gap in the clouds later on in the day when the sun was low to create shots which I think are beautiful, peaceful and romantic.

Big thanks to Toni & Roger who own the Emporium Bistro, who let me use the gardens of their home Trott’s Cottage as the location. Trotts Cottage has beautiful grounds. The afternoon sun bares down on the dam and seeps through the weeping willow type trees. It’s quite magical. And exactly what I was visualising prior to this shoot.

My portrait sittings last for 2 hours. So I strongly suggest that if you are planning a maternity shoot, you opt for an hour in the studio, and the second part out on location. This allows for some diversity. Personally I like to keep things in perspective, and a long floaty dress is perfect for this as it is what you might be wearing anyway in these kinds of surroundings. But you can mix it up, bring a couple of different clothing options and also include other members of your family. Your husband, or even perhaps your horse! Pregnant lady on a horse. That would be fabulous. In this setting, it would be mystical. Im going off on a tangent. Sorry …..

I am offering a 2 for 1 on Baby belly photos / Newborn Shoots. A standard portrait sitting is $325, It is a very special time, and flies by in a second. Also it can be a very expensive time, so hopefully this lessens the blow!

I would say that my style of Baby Belly Photos / Newborn photography is actually quite different from most photographers specialising in this area anyway. At the end of the day, it just comes down to personal choice.

Maria’s Baby Belly Photos


Maria’s Baby Belly Photos

Meet Maria. She is due on the 2nd of November. She has the most gorgeous bump.

The session consisted of an hour in my studio, and an hour outside on location. The weather however, has been terrible so I had to postpone the outside bit until later in the week.

This is my favourite type of Maternity Shoot. Simple & effective. Showing off the baby belly in an artistic way, whilst capturing emotion. I took a similar self portrait of myself when i was pregnant, and it goes very well with the one I took of Evie, and myself when she was just a few days old.

It is for this reason that I am offering a 2 for 1 on Baby belly photos / Newborn Shoots. A standard portrait sitting is $325, The selected images (at least 30 high resolution) will be presented to you on a disc to do with as you wish.

It is a very special time, and flies by in a second. Also it can be a very expensive time, so hopefully this lessens the blow!
