I don’t often get the chance to do maternity shoots but I jumped at the chance when my friend Joanne asked me to capture her in the late stage of her pregnancy. I’ve known Joanne for almost 7 years and I was at her baby shower in her new flat. I was in love with the massive bay windows and the gorgeous light that was available and so we put a date in the diary there and then. Because she was over 8 months pregnant, I wanted Joanne to be comfortable and relaxed and so we stayed at her flat and used different rooms to give a variety of backgrounds. Being at home also meant that she was able to try on different outfits and work out which ones accentuated her bump the most. I think pregnancy suited her very well and she looked amazing and hopefully this shows in these images. Baby Jacques was born just a few weeks after the shoot and he’s an absolutely gorgeous bundle of joy. We had so much fun, laughter and giggles on this shoot.
8 months is the perfect time to get baby-bump images as you should be large enough for it to be accentuated in photo’s as long as we use the correct light and clothing. It can be very calming and relaxing experience and will always make fantastic memories for you to share with your baby when he or she is much older.
