Pregnancy & Maternity Photography Melbourne

Beautiful & natural images capture a precious time.

Maternity, or pregnancy photography as it is also known, is a beautiful time to be photographed.

It’s the perfect time to be photographed, 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.

Pregnancy photography is not just about bare bellies!

Most people associate maternity photography with classic “bare belly” shots, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Everyone is different and you may not be that comfortable being semi-nude, or having your partner kissing your belly. So we work with you to ensure that you’re comfortable showing as much – or as little – of your body as you wish.

While we do pay attention to your belly, our maternity photo shoots are really more about the relationship that you have with your partner / other children and the love that is surrounding this new life that is entering the world.

What to expect from your maternity photography session.

Your session is relaxed and natural. We concentrate on documenting you and your family at the time of your pregnancy, whether that family is just you and your partner or if it also includes other children.

Maternity photography sessions are 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.

How long will my maternity photography take?

Your session will generally take about 1 hour and is usually timed to be in the early morning (45 minutes after sunrise) or late afternoon (1 – 2 hours before sunset) to use the best natural light.

What is the best time in my pregnancy for photography?

Maternity photos are best taken when your belly is big, so usually taken at around 32 – 36 weeks.

What do I wear to my maternity session?

During your pre planning, your photographer Karen will not only work with you to choose the perfect location for your session, but will also discuss clothing with you.

We want your session to reflect your own personal style and taste, so it is up to you how tight or revealing your outfit is. 

Pregnancy and newborn photography packages.

Maternity photography sessions can be booked as a stand alone session but are usually booked as an “add on” to a newborn photography shoot.

Combining the two sessions allows us to offer you a discounted package for your maternity photography.

Details of your maternity package as an “add on” to your newborn photography session can be found HERE. 

For pricing for stand alone sessions, please visit our Finished Products and Pricing Page. 

I really want to book a Maternity session as an add on, but can't come into the studio for newborn as I am doing a confinement.

No problems! Your Maternity session can be added onto an 8 week photo session or 100 day photo session as an alternative to a newborn photography session. Visit our Babies in Studio Page to view this type of session.
