Pregnancy shoot is usually around 2 hours. I like to take the photographs at around 34-36 weeks when your belly is beautiful and round but you’re not too close to your due date. I love photographing pregnant women outside especially at dusk or dawn when the light has a beautiful glow. Simplicity and comfort is the key is choosing what to wear. Stretchy fabrics, jeans, black tops, linen shirts, sarongs. I have some soft material to drape around your tummy and some bandeaus that you are more than welcome to borrow.
Newborn shoots are usually between 2-3 hours. I prefer to do newborn shoots outdoors at a beautiful location of your choice however if you prefer them inside and have an area appropriate in your home with good lighting I’m happy to come to you. Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of life. They are still so tiny, flexible and not so aware of their surroundings. I will bring a few props with me such as some beautiful fabrics, and soft blankets. If you have anything special you would like to include in the photos for example a beautiful bonnet or a hand knitted rug we can work out a way to use it.
Close to Mama’s Heart breastfeeding shoot is usually around 1 hour. The close emotional bond that ties a mother and child through the breastfeeding and babywearing years is so incredibly special. My camera and I will capture the beauty of that bond at a location of your choice.
