Maternity Photo Shoot

Maternity photography can sometimes be overlooked with everything else to plan but whether it be your first baby or you are an experienced parent it is a very exciting time. I remember feeling so happy when I had my babies that they had arrived safely. All I wanted to do was sit and watch them (believe me you will!) but I do remember missing my baby bump. I missed the movements, kicks (big and small) and when they had hiccups. 


Having a professional Maternity photo shoot is a lovely way to document such a special time is your life. It will allow you to capture this magical time to treasure forever on the first step in this life changing journey.

My baby bump sessions are relaxed and enjoyable. I have a selection of dresses and backgrounds to suit different tastes we can discuss this before your session. Children are more than welcome to the session too.

I book my baby bump sessions between 28-34 weeks when you will have a nice bump but still be fairly comfortable. You can of course choose to come earlier than this and I recommend ladies carrying twins/Triplets to come earlier. 

Please contact me to discuss any sessions, dates or for further information, either via my contact page or on 07887 632017


Once you have decided you want to know more, we will schedule a consultation (in person at my studio, over the phone via Zoom or by email. During the consultation we will discuss your shoot requirements and detailed pricing information. We will also discuss wardrobe and final products to complement your home. There is a £95 booking fee to pay, this includes the time for the shoot, use of props & maternity wardrobe, full editing of you final images this is then deducted from your final collection cost. 

Your Session

Your photo shoot will take place at my studio in Braintree. I will guide you through the entire process to create beautiful photographs for you. After your session, I will carefully select the best images and edit them to my unique style.

Ordering Appointment

When your portraits are ready we will meet for your ordering appointment. You will be able to see your beautiful images and have the opportunity to select the exquisite products, including wall art and our portrait folio box. I will guide you through the entire process and help you select the best way to present each photograph and create custom wall art that you will be proud to display in your home forever.

Mel is a very professional and an amazingly talented women.
The photos from my maternity shoot where simply outstanding and I was very impressed with her patience with my 3 year old son trying to sabotage certain shots.
I'd highly recommend Mel to all my friends and family.
