MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY WITH LORNA KNIGHTINGALE

I want you to remember how exciting and beautiful it felt waiting to welcome your new baby into this world.

I aim to capture this incredible moment in your life with beautiful, natural and safe poses that will take into consideration your incredible shape. I will create a selection of portraits that will remind you of that special bond you had with your unborn baby.

Mini bump sessions are photographed at my home-studio or on-location depending on the options you choose. You can be photographed semi-clothed or nude in the studio,  during on-location sessions, a bikini or nude lingerie is required under delicate dresses. 

Please get in touch so that we can schedule your session for between 30-36 weeks or earlier if carrying twins. Studio mini sessions are for Mum-to-be only, however, partners can be included in the on-location mini sessions. Partners and siblings can be included for on-location session family sessions only. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO BASED?
My home studio is located in Old Llantrisant area. I have wifi, parking and sky-Q. I photograph newborns, sitters and mini bump sessions there weekdays. The nearby area has a retail shopping park, gorgeous places to eat, a soft play area for toddlers and it is just off junction 34 of the m4, about 20 minutes to Cardiff.

WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO TAKE ON LOCATION PHOTOGRAPHS?
I can send you a list of beautiful locations where I have photographed before. I am happy to go to a particular place that has meaning for you like the grounds of the hotel where you were married or your back garden.

IS THERE A MINIMUM SPEND REQUIREMENT WHEN IT COMES TO ORDERING MY MINI SESSION OR FULL SESSION PHOTOS?
Mini sessions are shorter and so fewer images are taken and edited. Each mini session comes with two full-size digital negatives of your favourite photos. Approximately 8-10 edited images are available for your selection. Further prints, digital negatives and wall art are available to purchase from the à la carte product menu with no minimum order.

Full sessions like "Classic Family" & "Classic Newborn" require more images taken and between 20-30 are edited to create album options. There are many options for different budgets, so it's best to discuss this before you book. My minimum order is £250.

I have a full pricing guide that lists my different collections and individually priced products in detail as well as add-on items like unframed prints.
My clients typically spend between £400 and £3000 on their photos from full sessions with digital negatives priced from £80-£600. My beautiful products include rustic and classic frames, modern metal art and beautifully handcrafted albums.

I want you to buy what you want and my open and relaxed sales approach has meant that my clients return year after year for more sessions with me.
Beautiful portraits sell themselves.

CAN I BUY JUST THE DIGITAL NEGATIVES?
Yes, and there are also discounted collection for customers wanting a USB and wall art together.

HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?
Please get in touch via my contact form, and I will get back to you, I will need to know your available dates. You are welcome to call me and discuss your session and get you booked in.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE SEE MY PORTRAITS?
A "sneak peek" image can be shared on social media a day or two after your session while you wait. Approximately 2-3 weeks after your session, we arrange an in-person viewing and ordering appointment where you will see a gallery of 20-30  hand edited images (8-10 mini sessions) for you to make your choices from. Please refer to the product page for more details; a full pricing guide will be sent to you in advance.
