Youlia and Dan came down to my home town Bognor Regis for a maternity photo shoot the other week.  We were so lucky with the weather, we had some beautiful light and what a gorgeous bump Youlia has too.   A maternity photo shoot is something I think every mum-to-be should experience.  It’s so nice to have a momento or two of your bump as before long it won’t be there any more and I actually missed mine when it had gone!  Youlia and Dan were so much fun to photograph, they soon relaxed into it and were a pleasure to work with.  Just as well as we’ll have to do it all again soon when I travel to them to meet their new little man very soon!

Here are some of my favourite photos from their maternity photo shoot.

I do love a maternity photo shoot, I think all mums-to-be should celebrate their beautiful bumps and radiance in late stages of pregnancy.  You don’t need to do it a la Demi Moore style, although you can if you like!  There are so many flattering angles, timeless images and fun photos too that we can create to show your child one day or just to treasure for yourselves…  When Carol emailed me last week to see if I could do a “Year in the life of package” I was worried I wouldn’t be able to fit her in with the Easter holidays upon us, as she’s due very soon and my children are off school!  But I’m so pleased I managed to find the time at the weekend as it was so lovely to meet Carol and Matt – what a wonderful couple!  From the brief hour I spent with them I can tell they are going to make fantastic parents – and I can’t wait to meet their little bundle in a few weeks…  Carol, thank you so much for letting me share some of these photos from your mini bump session ❤ keep me posted on any news!

If you or someone you know is expecting and would like a bump-baby photo shoot or a year in the life of package please get in touch.  My kids are back at school in a week or  two so I’m sure I can squeeze you in!!

About 3 years ago I met with Charlotte & Andrew for a lovely little family shoot in Hotham park so I was delighted to be asked to photograph them again, this time for a maternity bump shoot on Bognor beach to begin the journey of capturing their 2nd daughter’s first year from bump to one!  I love doing the “Year in the Life of” package (see more about that here) as I really get to know the families and we’re often good friends by the end – if not at the start!  I also love creating all those happy memories as the first year always whizzes by so fast with babies.  I’m quite emotional looking back at the photos myself when I come to put the album together at the end of the year!  I’m so excited to meet Charlotte & Andrew’s baby – due any day now!  And I’m not the only one… poor mum is rather desperate to meet her now and her daddy and big sister are too!

Here are some of my favourites from the beach the other day, it was so cold so bless you Charlotte for braving taking your coat off and still looking so happy and beautiful!  <3

If you’re expecting or know someone who is then please do get in touch and enquire about my bump to baby or year in the life of packages.

 

I first met the lovely Sophie & Liam back in April when I had the great pleasure of photographing Dan & Helen’s wedding.  Sophie was one of Helen’s beautiful bridesmaids and she already had a teeny weeny bump back then.  I was so flattered & excited when they contacted me in September for a Year in the Life of package – to include a maternity shoot on the beach.  I’m sure Sophie won’t mind me saying her bump had got just a little bit bigger!  So beautiful though and we had fun wondering along the breezy seafront for a few cuddly natural photos of the nearly 3 of them!   A few weeks later I nipped up to visit them for one of the easiest newborn shoots ever!  Little Arthur was the perfect model and slept for most of it, awww such a gorgeous little man – congratulations Sophie & Liam, he’s one very lucky baby to have such wonderful parents.  Can’t wait to see you all again in a few months xx and thank you so much for letting me blog a few photos too…

 

Shelley and Franco booked me to photograph their amazing wedding just over 2 years ago at Fitzleroi Barn and we’ve stayed in touch via email on and off ever since.  More recently I saw them at their friends Annie & Pete’s wedding that I also photographed which is when I realised some congratulations were in order!  A couple of months later I got an email asking if I could do a bump & newborn baby shoot for them.  I didn’t have to think twice – I was chuffed to bits to be asked and off we trotted (no waddling!) to West Wittering one evening to capture Shelley in full bloom and then a week or so later *a teeny bit early, obviously keen to meet mummy & daddy* their beautiful baby son arrived.  As mum to 3 boys and well and truly done having babies I don’t tend to get broody anymore – that is until I met this gorgeous little man.  He is just so perfect and adorable and quite chilled out too.  Don’t panic though Steve – if you read this I don’t really want any more!  Just love the absolute joy, pleasure and honour of being invited round to photograph babies when they are so new to their world and more importantly new to their parents… so thank you Shelley & Franco and also for letting me share some on my little blog, it’s been so lovely catching up with you both again.  x  Here are just some of my favourites from the 2 shoots….
