Your maternity pictures are usually the first steps into the world of family photography, and it's a photoshoot that's always a little bit different to any others. I find maternity shoots are brimming with expectation, excitment - nerves too. It's quite contagious and I always leave feeling thrilled for what's just around the corner for my clients!

A maternity shoot tends to take place in the home, in a very relaxed, warm and calm setting, where you can feel comfortable (especially if you want bare bump pictures!) and outfit changes are simple to do. However plently of clients do like to get out in to the sun and want to use their local surroundings as a backdrop for their maternity pictures, be this a park, a coffee shot or certain local walk. And of course maternity photography in London is a bit of a dream, we have beautiful greenery stunning architecture and stereotypical 'London' icons - great to show off alongside your bump!
