Maternity

My aim is to make the photographic session fun and capture your natural expressions, so while I will pose you I am hoping to capture the essence of how you’re feeling and make you look the best I can using light, natural or studio as my paint brush.

Maternity Portraits

If you are thinking about having a maternity portrait session then I advise you to book your session for about 4 weeks (34 -36 weeks pregnant) before your due date to avoid disappointment if the little one decides to arrive early. Earlier when you are having your second, third baby or are expecting twins. We will have a consultation prior to the session so you know exactly what to expect during your maternity studio or lifestyle photo session.

And if you want something really special why not book a 'grow with me' package, whereby you will come into the studio a few times during your pregnancy for a short session to capture the growth of your lovely bump. Email me for more details on the 'grown with me' package as soon as you find out your pregnant.

For all maternity sessions, I recommend plain black and white clothing with no logos. After all, we want to emphasize your beautiful shape and busy clothes can be distracting. However if you're opting for an outdoor maternity shoot , a touch of colour can make all the difference. Don't worry, once you have booked your session I will email across a complete list of do's and don'ts to make sure your session is a success.

A LOT of mums-to-be have stretch marks ... if you do and you hate them then don't let it put you off being photographed. I can airbrush them out, so no one will ever know.

However you choose to be photographed, some mums-to-be want to celebrate their bump fully clothed and others are happy to go for a more "Demi Moore" type session, it will be a fun experience, resulting in beautiful photos that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

I also offer 'Bump to Baby' and ‘My First Year’ packages as well as Gift Certificates, if this may be of interest to you please get in touch for further details.

If you would like to book a session or have any other questions, please get in touch and email me at contact@tamarasphotography.co.uk In the meantime please have a look at my maternity studio or natural-light lifestyle photo gallery. I also publish the images of my most recent shoots on my blog and Facebook page.
