I ran a model call for styled maternity photography, the response was overwhelming! So many beautiful pregnant ladies in Reading, I had no idea. I started a facebook group for future pregnant photoshoot model calls (click on model calls), feel free to join. The stars aligned that day, the dress I ordered for the session arrived from Amazon as I was leaving the house and the sun was shining. I wanted a moodier feel to the session so I had asked Anna to arrive at 6pm. Within seconds of her arrival she was sat in the window having her makeup applied by the super talented model and makeup artist Mir Shin. We quickly discovered that by some bizarre coincidence that Anna went to the same grammar school as the person who owns the venue that my husband and I were married at. Well, as I say the stars aligned for this shoot. We had an absolute blast!

For this session I wanted Anna to feel glamorous, but to retain a natural feel so when she looks back at this special time in her life she can remember how she felt and looked. Let’s be honest after baby is born most of us start to forget the feeling of being pregnant, and wish we had a picture to remember. We discussed this, as I tested the light. Anna tells us her mum had one photo of herself pregnant with Anna, I myself only have one picture of myself pregnant with my first child. I promised I would have more if I were lucky enough to be pregnant again.

This is the reason I created the styled maternity photography package. I want women to be able to see themselves and remember how amazing they are, how amazing we are, to be able to make a baby in our bodies is a miracle and we forget that amongst the appointments, nipple creams, labour scare stories etc etc. That there is a time when that little baby kicked it’s feet all night on the right side of your belly and stuck it’s bum out so far you were convinced people could see it! That there was a time which you cradled your belly at night, wishing with all your might above anything else that your baby was just healthy. I sent Anna her preview of her shoot the same night as I was so excited to see the result. I agonisingly waited till the next morning to see her response, she adored her photos! I was thrilled! Here are a pick of some of my favourites.

If you would like to be pampered with styled maternity photography, get in touch soon. I will require a couple of weeks to plan the session.

bean and I love them! You are

a master of your craft”
