You and your body are doing amazing things right now. Let’s create some memories!
Before your baby makes an entrance into the world and changes your life completely and unalterably, take the time to record this brief but life-changing event with some beautiful photographs of you and your bump. It’s a wonderful way of remembering all that is amazing about pregnancy. You and your body are doing amazing things right now.
Timing is everything with this session; we want to shoot when your bump is the optimum shape, but I generally try and steer clear of shoots too close to the due date in case your baby arrives early. Consequently, I suggest that you book after your 20 week scan, and we can plan a session for somewhere between 24 weeks and 35 weeks.
Once your new baby arrives I suggest you schedule a further session to capture the fragility of your newborn with a photo shoot within a few days of their arrival; again at my studio. They may sleep through the whole thing, but it’s still a very precious time; besides, newborn yawning is still very cute! As a mum myself, I can guarantee that you’ll forget just how tiny and angelic your child was – so a photograph can serve as a perfect reminder.
Location, location, location
Your photo session will take place at my comfortable dedicated studio at Parndon Mill, on the edge of Harlow, Essex. The session is designed to capture your child as they play, explore and rest.
Parndon Mill (an old flour mill) is a creative hub on the edge of Harlow, which is where many other creative businesses are based. It’s a bit of a well kept secret next to the river, but the location offers the option to take the session outside and make use of the fabulous private grounds that surround that Mill. This link takes you to a short video all about Parndon Mill.
How much does it all cost? The simple answer is : your session booking fee (of £100) + products (from £65) = your investment.
