Natural and Authentic Maternity Photography in Hertfordshire
Hello! You’ve landed in the right place if you’re looking for natural and authentic maternity photography in Hertfordshire.
Pregnancy is amazing, let’s face it. As you and your partner head in to this time of new adventure, what better way to celebrate than with a maternity photography session? This is the perfect time to slow down, step back and spend an hour or two together making pictures that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Impressively, your ever changing body is at its most powerful. Therefore you need to grab this moment and document that wonderful baby bump!
Outdoor Maternity Photography
Importantly each maternity photography session is unique, designed around you. Undoubtably one of my favourite spots to photograph is in my local woods. (You’ll probably have noticed this is where the images featured were taken!) I think the backdrop, especially during the autumn months gives a natural and relaxed feel to your pictures. However, if you’re not an outdoor type of couple, fear not. Thankfully, a maternity shoot in the comfort of your own home works just as well. Essentially, I’ll photograph you wherever you feel most comfortable. Thus ensuring you both feel at ease totally chilled out.
Personal Touches to Prepare You For Your Shoot
Generally speaking we all feel different during our pregnancies. In my experience, that means we don’t always feel our best. Nonetheless, it’s imperative to remember that how we feel isn’t always how we look. From where I stand, there’s no one quite as beautiful and radiant as a pregnant lady. I’ll be with you all the way to make the most of our time together and to make you feel amazing.
Furthermore, before our maternity photography session we will discuss what kind of look you imagine for your photos. This will help decide on a location, clothing choices and anything else that comes up. For instance the gorgeous mum to be in this feature wanted a slightly whimsical, dreamy feel to her maternity photography. In addition to sending clothing inspiration boards, I suggested that she might want to add a few props. Consequently, sunflowers, baby shoes and a pretty flower crown were bought along. In short, all items that mean something, a personal touch.
Photographing That Baby Bump
Ideally the best time for maternity photography is somewhere in your last trimester. At that time your baby bump will be apparent, beautifully rotund! The perfect “bump” featured was around 31 weeks old.
Whilst I appreciate that most couples will feel a bit self conscious at first, rest assured I’m great at putting you at ease. Firstly I’m totally camera shy myself, I feel you! Secondly, I will gently guide you into positions that will both show off your bump and you both in the best light.
