Maternity photoshoot Edinburgh & Fife

As mothers, creating new life is the most awe-inspiring thing our bodies will ever do. When you finally hold your baby in your arms, you’ll be beyond grateful to your amazing body for giving you your child. And I want to give you maternity photography that celebrates that miracle. Artistic photos that show off your beautiful bump, capture your motherhood in a natural way. And document this incredible chapter in your life before your exciting new life begins.

It may not feel like it sometimes, but pregnancy does go by so fast! So I want our session to be an enjoyable experience for you. An excuse to pamper yourself and get dressed up. A chance to bond with your partner. A few hours away from the busyness of nest-building to just enjoy being pregnant.

My maternity photoshoots take place in my cosy little natural light studio in Fife, just half an hour’s drive from the centre of Edinburgh. I have a client wardrobe of stunning maxi dresses and muslin wraps, to give you the most effortless experience possible and make you feel like the life-giving goddess you are.

FAQs

If you have any other questions at all about a maternity session with me, just get in touch!

Unsure about what to wear for a maternity shoot? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered, literally!

I have created a small but beautiful client closet to take the stress out of what to wear. I have a selection of beautiful lacey kimonos, simple maxi dresses and wraps, all carefully chosen as for their earthy, minimalist feel and which allow for your beautiful bump to be the main focus of your portraits.

Most of the images in my portfolio here are of my gorgeous clients in different items from my client closet.

A maternity photoshoot is best done towards the end of your 2nd trimester or start of the 3rd trimester, about 28-32 weeks is perfect!


Absolutely! Your partner or children can also come along and join in. I will capture images of you alone and with your family.

.

I do! I absolutely adore documenting a couple’s journey into parenthood, sharing in the excitement and anticipation. 

Saying goodbye to a woman as she leaves her maternity session, knowing the next time she steps back into the studio that she’ll have her tiny baby in her arms is honestly a wonderful feeling! 

Please head over to my ‘At-Home Baby’ or ‘Studio Baby’ pages for pricing for Bump to Baby session fees as these are slightly different. The image collections after each of the sessions are the same.
