Red gown maternity images in Surrey
Thank you for considering me to capture the special time of waiting for your new baby. A maternity session is best carried out in the last trimester. You might not be feeling your most glamorous but I will do my all to make you feel like the Goddess you are. Growing a little person is an amazing job and the baby you are carrying will one day love seeing photos of you with them in your belly...
All of my sessions start with a consultation so I can help you create exactly the kind of images you will want to display big on your walls, ones that you will look back at fondly and enjoy for years to come.
Once you have had your session you will be invited back to the studio in one to two weeks to view your images which have been beautifully hand edited by me. Minimum spend is £199 which can be spent on a package or products.
To secure a session I do require a £50 non refundable booking fee which comes off the total cost of your session. A payment for your selected package is due no later than 24 hours prior to your session. Not sure which package to get? I suggest purchasing the basic Tiny Treasure package and you are welcome to upgrade to a higher package with more images included once your gallery is ready.

* When is the best time to have a maternity session?
I recommend having your maternity session between 28 and 32 weeks as your bump will be showing beautifully and you will still be hopefully feeling up to having a session before you are feeling ready for baby to make an appearance. If you would like your session sooner or later on in your pregnancy that is not a problem, I had mums to be to my Cheam based photography studio all the way to one day before their baby was born :)
* What should I bring to the session?
If there is a specific gown or outfit you would like to wear please do bring it along. I would also recommend bringing nude coloured underwear and a strapless bra if you have one. Bringing a black and a white set of underwear might also be helpful if you have it but the nude coloured ones are the best option if possible. Try to avoid wearing tight fitting clothes and socks at least one hour prior to the session to avoid imprints on your skin.
* Are there gowns to borrow at the studio?
I have a collection of gowns available in the studio, depending on the size of clothing you are wearing at the moment. Some are one size fits all, feel free to get in touch regarding the styles available. I will send you a gallery of my gowns once you are booked in for a session with me. I also have fabrics we can drape and may options and poses to create stunning images for you.
* Do you provide hair and make-up?
I don't offer hair and make up included in the packages. I do ask that you come to the studio with your hair and make up the way you would like it to be for your photos but I can recommend a local MUA if you would like a recommendation.
* Can my partner come and take part?
Yes of course. Please feel free to bring your partner along, even if he only wants to join in for one or two photos, they are welcome to take part. But be prepared that you will be the main star of the show! :)
* We have an older child, can they take part in the photos?
Yes! Bring your older child too, they should not miss out on the experience and we can chat about what you should dress them in prior to the session to create beautiful, timeless images for you. Whilst at the studio, your little one still remains your responsibility and I ask that dad keeps an eye on them or even takes them out once their photos are done so that we have time to create stunning images for you and of you as YOU are the star of the show when it comes to a maternity session. After all, you are growing an actual human being and we should celebrate you for the goddess you are! When you have a child / children already it is hard to slow down, take time, enjoy the pregnancy and concentrate on yourself and I like to create the time and space to do just this for you!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
