Pregnancy Sessions

It’s becoming more and more common for expectant mother and their partners to have Pregnancy Sessions, to capture one of the most beautiful times in a woman’s life.

Many people think that it’s only first time mothers who have Pregnancy Photographs taken, but in fact, often it’s mum’s who already have one or two kids who come in to Rachel Sherman Photography – either because they like to document each pregnancy in this special way, or because they never did it with their first pregnancies.

The best time for a pregnancy session is somewhere around 35-37 weeks.  By that time you have a well-rounded belly, perfect for showing off in photographs!

I have some flowy fabric for beautiful dramatic shots and also a couple of different colour maternity 'gowns' which look beautiful and ethereal.  Feel free to bring your own props as well, which could include some little booties, ribbon, an ultrasound photograph or anything else you think of.  We can even do some 'yummy mummy' shots in lacy underwear if you're game.

If you're thinking about what to wear, pack one or two different colour tops, preferably plain, tight fitting tops or even a plain button-up shirt.

And don't worry about any stretch marks or blemishes, we can take care of those in editing!

I now have a combined package which incorporates both a pregnancy session and newborn / family session.  These two sessions just fit together and are often done just weeks apart, just before bub is due and then just after birth.

What are you waiting for – book in now and let me capture this beautiful time for you.
