When you feel that first little kick, and hear a tiny heartbeat for the first time, you suddenly understand what it means to love someone more than your own life. - Author Unknown
tiny + brave style
I treat my maternity photography sessions more like a family of couples session. With great emphasis on your whole family being together, living the moment before your whole world changes for the most amazing arrival. Each session covers a whole range of images capturing all combinations you can think of. I take a slight lifestyle approach to my maternity photography sessions, limiting the poses, giving you much more opportunity to just be with your loved ones. I will often tell you to forget I am there and just be, let the moment take place without my direction or interruption. Have a laugh, a cuddle, hold hands, rub your belly, let your little people talk to the baby and just take time out to imagine who the little person growing inside will become, what life will be like when they arrive.
timing + duration
Maternity photography sessions are held at around 34-37 weeks. This timing allows us to capture a beautiful round belly, but also plenty of time to avoid your baby arriving before we have a chance to meet.
Your session will run for approximately 60-90 minutes. This timeframe will vary with each family, but I tend not to watch the clock. If everyone is enjoying themselves, the weather is playing my game and I seeing some beautiful moments, I tend to just keep going.
Sessions held on location are more often than not, held in the late evening, at the gorgeous golden hour, right before the sunsets. Soft, light images of your family enjoying a warm afternoon or a freezing cold evening, enjoying each others company.
Ultimately, the location of your maternity session is entirely your choice. I am located in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne and have some absolutely gorgeous favourite places in my area, but am open to most locations throughout Melbourne and surrounds too. If you have any favourite places your family loves to visit, that’s a great place to start! Or if nothing springs to mind, let me take you on an adventure!
Nothing is more important to me than you being completely comfortable in how you look and feel when you are in my company. The clothes you wear should be something you love, something that makes you feel beautiful.
Light neutral colours always work really well. If you would like to include a colour, it is best to pick just one or two and work around that, just try not to all wear the same thing or you may potentially clash.
If I have lost you here, let's chat further about wardrobe options prior to your session.
When you invest in me as your photographer I truly value this opportunity and aim to provide an enjoyable experience, images that reflect my creativity and finished products that protect and display your portraits for many years to come.
