LONDON MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER
“We had such a great experience with Andrea and I highly recommend her as a photographer. She really put us at ease during the shoot and was great to work with. !”
So you’re interested in booking a materniy or baby photography session (maybe both!), well you’ve come to the right place. I’ve photographed hundreds of women and new families over the past 12 years so you’re in safe hands. I will guide you through the session, allowing space for it for evolve organically, so you can relax and enjoy the experience. Finding a photographer whose style speaks to you is so important, if thats me then get in touch, I cant wait to hear from you.
01 – SECURE YOUR DATE
So you’ve had a look around and you know I’m the photographer for you. You’ve got a good feel for how I work and are excited to start planning.
You’ve seen my maternity and newborn photography portfolio and recent sessions and want your very own. In my opinion the best time to have your maternity shoot is between 24 and 34 weeks. Newborn sessions are good from as soon as you feel ready.
The next step is to familiarise yourself with the pricing structure (below) it’s super easy, there’s a session fee (this secures your date) and then there’s the image collection fee. This can be chosen upfront or after your session. If you chose upfront you get the session free, how about that!
Use the contact form to get in touch with any questions and to find out my available dates.
02 – PLANNING YOUR SESSION
Once we found a date that works, I’ll open your online client portal where you’ll complete your booking form, this helps me to get to know you and your family a bit better and understand what direction you want to take the shoot in. A lot of my clients opt to combine at-home photography sessions and outdoor sessions. Though if you prefer either one over the other thats all good too!
It’s a great idea to think of ways we can make the session special to you, with maternity sessions it might be a session at home where you can feel relaxed getting those beautiful bump shots or you may want to get out and about have more movement in your images, a walk around town or your favourite park.
Have no idea where to start? don’t worry I can suggest some great locations or you can get inspired by other sessions in my recent work section.
03 – ON THE DAY
Every session is unique, and there no doubt that when there’s a relaxed atmosphere, you will shine. Try not to have too many preconceived ideas about how your session will evolve or how your baby will react. Holding, comforting and connecting with your baby is all you need to bring to the table, sometimes ignoring the fact I’m there will have an incredible outcome. The magic happens when you let go.
I will do some directing, sometimes a little sometimes a lot, just so we have the best light and flattering angles.
Choosing what to wear is important to the overall look and feel of your images, if you need help with this I’ve got you, in the form of some guidance I’ll send out.
Plan for two hours with me, we can break for feeding and chats. I’m yet to hear a client say it hasn’t flown by!
04 – AFTER YOUR SESSION
I will hand edit the very best images from your gallery. There will be at least 30 in total but often there is more. Any unflattering or less than perfect images will not make the cut.
Within 2-4 weeks you’ll recieve a link to your gallery. You can view a beautful slideshow of the highlights and then all the edited images from your session.
This is when you decide which collecton youd like to purchase, if you havent already. Once you’ve chosen the entire shop will open and you can purchase add ons such as prints, albums and frames.
Hello! I’m Andrea, a professional family photographer based in Greenwich, South East London. My abiding memories of growing up were leafing through stacks of old family photo albums – memories and personalities frozen in time. It gave me a nice feeling and that’s something I haven’t lost. I want other people to experience it when they look at their photos. I want to capture your story, with you in it! So you, your children and your relatives can share in it too.
I’ve photographed hundreds of families since I started my business back in 2011, I’ve captured a whole range of important family moments, from amazing home-births to raucous 70th Birthday parties and everything big and small in between.
‘The days are long but the years are short”
As a mum to two (teenage!) boys I can’t explain how true this is. It feels as though I’ve blinked and they are now towering over me. Carrying them to bed happened one last time and I didn’t even know it. Every day moments that we’re prone to taking for granted, I want make sure you dont’t reget documenting what makes your relationships special. Sometimes the human brain needs a little nudge and once it’s had it in the form of olf family photos, a whole wealth of feelings and emotions come flooding back for you. For your kids and their kids it will be a way to piece together beautful, emotional and sometime hilarous parts of their childhood.
The simple fact is, you won’t regret making memories and saving them.
