Not only am I a mum myself to three wonderful and lively children, but I am also one of the few photographers in the UK that hold the Craftsman status with the Guild of Photographers in Portraiture. I have over 7 years experience photographing mums-to-be and handling and photographing babies and have attended various photography and newborn training courses.
I have a beautiful custom built studio in the South of Birmingham by Longbridge town centre my Maternity sessions are shot in my studio or close to my studio outdoors if thats your preference.
The sessions are very relaxed and I am entirely led by your preferences, if you prefer the more posed session and glamourous shots I have gowns and props and can will talk you through all the posing, if you prefer your own clothes and a very simple shoot that is also perfectly fine.
Maternity shoots are the one kind of shoot where mums-to-be feel very different, your bodies have changed, I know all the best lighting and angles to bring out the best, I also edit and remove anything that pregnancy has changed that you dont want in the images, everything from puffy ankles and wrists to stretch marks, spots and skin changes, I even had one lady with a beautiful round perfect shaped belly who on the day of the shoot had a baby who decided to move very akwardly for the entire shoot, making her tummy appear square, this of course I can fix (Maybe keeping one in for memories) If you require.
Many mums-to-be have never had a professional shoot done before and are very nervous, but every single lady has said to me at the end of the shoot that it was an amazing comfortable experience
