Bump and Baby photography services
I love photographing newborns – the bubbles they blow, the faces they pull when asleep, and the cute way fluff gets trapped between their toes. But best of all is knowing I am capturing an amazing stage of their lives for their parents.
Whether you choose a lifestyle shoot in your home, in a forest or would prefer a beautifully lit bump and newborn shoot in the studio, we can discuss a plan that best suits your needs.
Baby bump / Maternity
I offer two distinctive approaches to capturing your baby bump. They can be photographed at my studio or a location such as a forest, open fields or a boutique hotel.
A studio shoot has more controlled lighting for a distinctive look whereas a location shoot will provide natural images with a more relaxed and warm feel to them.
A location will offer more variety when it comes to different settings depending on the location that is chosen.

A newborn shoot
This session is photographed 7-10 days after the birth and we focus 100% on the little one. This is the best time for those amazing newborn shots because he or she is still ok with being folded up like they were in mom’s tummy.
If you want to have pics of mom and dad as well, we have a parent add-on specifically for that. And because the little one is tuckered out by the time the newborn shoot is done, we strongly recommend it be done on a different day. Unless you love crying baby pictures :-)
Consider a Combo.
By booking multiple shoots you get a better rate for the shoot.
What about a maternity and newborn shoot combo? Or add a cake smash a year later to make it three shoots.
Bump and baby photography FAQ
What is the best time for a bump shoot?
Generally speaking 34/35 weeks is a good time for the shoot. You don’t want to leave it too late :-)
What is the best age for a newborn shoot?
The best time for the shoot is within the first 7-10 days to get those amazing squishy / foldy baby shots. This is best done in the studio.
What should i do before the shoot?
A good wipe of the little one’s face and body before you arrive is always recommended. That will clean off any flakey skin or baby powder that may be on his or her skin.
I like to book the shoot in the morning as we have found the babies to be more settled in the morning.
You can arrive at my studio at 9:30, remove the baby’s clothes and feed them. Once settled and asleep we can start.
It is more difficult if you feed at home and then drive over here as they will generally wake up and not be sleepy when we want to start.
And the best shots are when they are sleeping :-)
