Since lockdown restrictions have begun to ease in the UK I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing quite a few mums to be recently. I met Georgia on a warm Saturday evening in April at one of my favourite locations, Sale Waterpark just as the sun was about to set. You could be forgiven for thinking that this was somewhere in Australia.. but no, sunny Manchester.
Deciding on a maternity photoshoot can be a tough decision for expecting mums. Your body is going through immense change and you may feel self conscious to show a bump, tired, not yourself. However, this is a moment just for you and your baby, to remember what your body did and what it achieved. It feels like a lifetime but looking back it is such a small yet magical moment in your life that I would always recommend documenting it in some way.
I am truly gutted I never had professional images of my two being carried around in my tummy. Even though I’ve been through this process myself I am eternally fascinated by the female body and how it copes, adapts and the resilience it shows. Yet, there is something so graceful and poised about it all…
If you’re interested I would suggest booking in around 28-34 weeks, but each pregnancy is slightly different so we can always chat through options ahead of time. I have a few favourite locations around Manchester/Cheshire and I have a variety of dresses available to hire at no extra cost which are suitable for all sizes and bumps. I also offer a bump to baby package for a discounted rate.
If you’re interested or still unsure I’m always available for a chat or text.
