Congratulations on your pregnancy! It is such a unique time and it goes so quickly. If you are working or already have an older sibling, it can go by in a blur and you will soon look back thinking ‘what was it like being pregnant… I can’t remember?’ It is also very easy to miss out on capturing special images of yourself, and only later realise that you have no images at all (or certainly nothing you want to share publicly!).
In carrying a baby you are doing something amazing and booking a maternity photography experience is a great way to celebrate that. Pregnancy symptoms can be very varied, and it’s so easy to focus on the feelings of tiredness and some of the less than glamorous aspects. Sarah is a mum of three and has experienced all the highs and lows of pregnancy, so you are in very safe and understanding hands in the studio.
Capture This Most Special Time
At Newborn Art by SJ Baldock we love to help mums-to-be celebrate their pregnancy. We love to meet pregnant mums and capture this very special moment with timeless and beautiful artwork. We are happy to welcome mums-to-be into the studio at any time during your pregnancy, often charting the whole wonderful journey through your nine months with a maternity timeline. We always recommend the final maternity session be no later than 36 weeks as, from experience we know, babies don’t always wait until their due date to arrive!
Involve the Family
We love to get dads-to-be involved too, which can result in some of the most precious images. Siblings are also very welcome as being a big brother- or sister-to-be is an important job too! It can also be a lovely way to help an older sibling prepare to be a big brother or sister. We can arrange sessions in hours to suit both mums- and dads-to-be, so don’t worry about that.
Feel Amazing for Your Maternity Photography Experience
We have a selection of beautiful dresses and backdrops available to wear that really flatter you and your ‘bump’. You can also bring a favourite outfit that you may have worn throughout your pregnancy. We also love to include any toys or tiny clothes that you may have already bought for baby, or maybe the image from your scan. Take a look at our gallery page for some inspiration or get in touch if you have something particular in mind.
Our aim with a maternity photography experience is for you to have a relaxing time, where you feel truly special, and to create precious memories to treasure and share forever. Just remember, you are making a new life in there and nothing could be more amazing than that!
