Spring Maternity Photo Shoots | Hemel Hempstead

Spring Maternity Photo Shoots | Hemel Hempstead

Spring is one of my favourite times of year for outdoor photo shoots. 

After dreaming of being able to wear boots for so long, the longing for summer shoes returns along with the earning for longer days and the smell of cut grass.  The sun starts to make a few more appearances and going out without a coat for the first time this year becomes an event.

High Wycombe Photographer | The Montgomery Family

High Wycombe Photographer | The Montgomery Family

I first met the Montgomery family before they even became the Montgomery family back in September 2015. 
There was talk of a wedding but the main focus at that time was the little bump that was soon to arrive. 

The Maternity Session

The majority of their session took place at their house in High Wycombe (which is one of the most hilly places i've ever been!)

Maternity Photographer | St Albans

Recently I got to meet a lovely new mum to be for a maternity session in her home in St Albans.  

For some dads, getting in front of the camera for a maternity session is a big no no and other women would just like some photos of them and their bump to remember the journey they've taken together.

Who ever you want to be in your images is completely up to you!

I kept things quite simple for Rachel's session, starting with a collection of shots laying and sitting on her bed.  By the end of this post your should be able to guess her favourite colour!

She also wanted some classic topless shots, as well as some with her bump out so we did this against a wall in her bedroom using my lights.  

I just love the skirt she wore for these, it really shows her personality.

To finish off we went into the living room and got some beautiful relaxed shots backlit by her window.

I think this session shows that even with a few simple locations around your house, it's still easy to get a lovely selection of images to remember your pregnancy. 

I can't wait to go back and meet her little girl in a few weeks!

Maternity Bump Shoot : Kat

Maternity Photo Shoot at home

A few weeks ago I made a very misguided journey (thank you once again sat nav...) to see Kat and her partner for their bump shoot in Aylesbury. 

They have booked a 3 shoot package which means I get to go back once their little one is born and then again after a few months to see how they've grown up. 

We mostly stuck with natural photos, using the living room, master bedroom & nursery to capture pictures of Kat alone and with her partner.

The nursery they have set up is beautiful.  I am happy to admit I will be stealing their ideas for whenever I am need of my first nursery! 

To finish, I used a plain wall in their bedroom to capture some more studio style shots including the classic heart on the tummy shot and one of my favourites, which I call the sexy mummy shot! 

They are a really lovely couple and I am very excited to go back and meet their newborn in March :)

 

Bump Shoot : Barnes Family

I love outdoor photo shoots but In November they can be few and far between. 

When Nanae booked her bump shoot a few months in advance, we made plans to head to Stanborough Park and in the end were fortunate enough to catch the last warm (if slightly muddy) weather of November. 

The good thing about a location like this is the vast variety of images I can capture.  We had beautiful lake backdrops to work with along with the low winter sun which gave us some gorgeous light and some dramatic shadows. 

Lovely days like that are a photographers dream, even if it does mean getting a little muddy! 

I'm very excited to be heading back to Welwyn in a few weeks, this time to meet baby Barnes :)
