A Mummy & Bump Session.
When my beautiful friend Rosie told me that she was gonna be a mummy, I was so, so excited to do a maternity shoot with the expecting parents. What a lovely way to celebrate their wonderful news! Luck was on our side and, due to some back and forth travelling between London and County Durham, we found a little window of opportunity to squeeze in a one on one lifestyle maternity shoot.
Just Mummy & Bump.
It was pretty perfect! In this totally relaxed, in the home shoot, we drank tea, talked babies and generally had a no pressure session. We casually ran through couple of rolls of film using a mix of black and white, and colour. I am just so in love with them. Really! What a radiant mummy to be, and what an honour to record this special time of being an expecting mum for the very first time.
A one on one is a wonderfully precious and intimate way to capture your lovely, round bump on your journey to being a pretty awesome mother.
One of the reasons I love being a photographer is that I can do sweet shoots like this and capture these beautiful moments. A session like this I highly recommend to all expecting mums and it’s perfect to include alongside a couple maternity session with daddy to be too!
So, I hope you enjoy this simple, chilled lifestyle maternity session below, and in a fortnight I get to do it all over again. With both parents this time! I can’t wait!
