PREGNANCY/ MATERNitY PHOTOGRAPHY LONDON

Memories of the love between you and your unborn baby

Welcome to my maternity photography page. I am a South London pregnancy/ maternity photographer and I have been photographing mums-to-be in London for the last 9 years.

Congratulations on the impending arrival of your gorgeous new baby! I am so excited that you are considering a maternity photography session with me. Are you confident in front of the camera and excited about showing off your bump? Or are you absolutely terrified at the thought but feeling like you should do it… maybe because you didn’t with your first child and it’s the last time you plan to be pregnant? However you are feeling, I promise to make sure you look your best in your photos.

"I had a pregnancy photoshoot just before the baby arrived, as well as a newborn photography session. In both shoots Sara-Jane managed to get some really wonderful shots that we shall frame and cherish. I wanted some "natural" looking shots as opposed to posed ones and Sara-Jane took that on board and captured what I was looking for. Can't recommend her highly enough'.

"Sara-Jane did both a maternity and newborn photoshoot for my second child and she was absolutely fantastic with both! She was incredibly flexible and cooperative. I was really keen to have an outdoor pregnancy photoshoot - as the weather wasn’t in our favour she was more than happy to reschedule a couple of times. She even helped me select what we could all wear!"

YOUR MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT

Your maternity photography session will take place at your home so you are super relaxed in familiar surroundings. Or we can go to a local London park for the session to capture some beautiful, natural photos. Sessions are best during weeks 32-36 weeks but can be done right up to your due date if you have left it late to book. During your photoshoot I can take photos both with bump out and fully clothed, depending on your preference. Pregnancy photography sessions can also include dads-to-be and older children too.

 

If you would also like a newborn photoshoot please see my Newborn Photography page.

YOUR QUESTIONS

Maternity sessions are best during weeks 32-36 weeks but can be done right up to your due date if you have left it late to book.

I am a South London maternity photographer but your maternity/ pregnancy photography session can be held at your London home in South London, East London, West London or Central London.. I will pose you for your photos against a blank wall and bring lighting with me.. 

Your bump photoshoot can also be held outside in your favourite London park.

Pregnancy photoshoots can take 1- 2 hours depending on whether it’s just you and your partner or older children are involved. I only book one session per day, so it feels super relaxed and not rushed. I don’t time sessions and I won’t leave until I know I have captured all of the images that you want!

I will take a variety of photos of you looking at the camera and down at your bump, fully clothed and with bump out if you wish. I will also include your partner and any older siblings in the photos too. I will provide a mix of colour and black and white images for you to choose from. 

Although I am a South London maternity photographer I also provide maternity/ pregnancy photography sessions in Central London, West London and East London too. I will happily travel for an hour within London and Surrey. Anything over an hour (approx. 10 miles) will be subject to an additional travel charge.

Either tight tops are best, or a dress which is tight over the bump. Short sleeves work best in photos. We can also have some arty bump out photos if you would like.

If your partner wants to be in photos too it’s important to make sure you coordinate with each other. I recommend wearing similar tones if you want black and white images.

You are to welcome to send me a photo of your proposed outfit before your session so that I can advise if it works.

The photography session fee must be paid when you book your pregnancy photoshoot. Payment for digital images, prints and products is due when you place your order. 

After your maternity session, I will supply around 10-20 images for you to view in a mix of colour and black and white, either via an in-person ordering appointment or online gallery. I aim to get this done within one week of the shoot.

Orders must be made either on the day of the ordering appointment or within a week of your gallery going live. I sell various collections, digital images, prints, albums and products for your wall. 

Digital images will be professionally retouched with blemishes etc removed. High resolution images with full printing rights will be supplied via download on We Transfer or on a USB.
