Maternity, or pregnancy photography as it is also known, is a beautiful time to be photographed. You’re about to start a new family, or add to your existing family, as the love that you share with your partner brings new life into the world.
Not only is maternity photography a record of a momentous life event, it also gives you the opportunity to show your child at some point in the future the love that surrounded their creation.
Most people associate maternity photography with classic “bare belly” shots. However, not everyone is that comfortable being semi-nude, or having your partner kissing your belly. So while we do pay attention to your belly, we work with you to ensure that you’re comfortable showing as much – or as little – of your body as you wish, and really concentrate on the relationship story that created this beautiful new little life.
Your session is kept as relaxed and natural as any other Vanilla Images portrait photography session. We concentrate on documenting you and your family at the time of your pregnancy: whether that is of just you and your partner, or also includes other children.

Maternity photography sessions are usually on-location at the location of your choice. It could be at a spot that is special to you, or a location that you like being in, such as at home, the beach, the bush, an urban setting or in a public garden.
Your session will and generally take about 1 hour and is usually timed to be in the early morning or late afternoon to get the best natural light.
Maternity photos are best taken when your belly is big, so are usually taken at around 32 – 36 weeks.
Maternity photography sessions are very rarely booked as a stand alone session, and are usually coupled with a newborn photography shoot.
