Maternity Portraiture

Congratulations Mama!
Maternity sessions are the perfect way to celebrate you before the baby arrives. I love photographing you alone or with your partner, looking beautiful and glamorous.

Due to my studio's small size, I recommend an on-location-only session if you want siblings to join.

Studio Only

Studio sessions begin at 10am.


My little studio is about 17 minutes west of Cardiff and is easy to get to. Sessions are midweek, starting at 9.45 am until 2 pm. See My Studio Here


Studio & On-Location Sunrise

A combination of studio and location is available if we shoot close to the studio. We meet at the location the first hour after sunrise and finish the shoot at my small home studio afterwards.

On-Location Only, Sunrise Or Sunset
I recommend outside shoots where the location is far from my studio or you prefer the shoot to be at sunset. Sessions start the first hour after sunrise or an hour and a half before sunset for that gorgeous glow! The time will differ depending on the season, and we can discuss your best times.

The photoshoots take place within 25 miles of CF72, and I can shoot further away for an additional fee. I have many beautiful options for you. I also love to know the places you love to go to that have meaning.

When To Book

Booking ahead will ensure that I am available for you. Aiming for a session between 30-38 weeks is ideal. You need to be showing and comfortable. The sessions are 1.5 hours.

The choice you make will determine your session length and style.

If you book last minute, it's best to choose asap and pay the session fee and the digital collection you want immediately. Should you cancel the session, digital collections are refundable.
Then we make some beautiful portraits.

I hand-edit each image to perfection. I am all about quality over quantity. I carefully select the best images, and over a few days, I retouch them in Photoshop to make everyone look well-rested and remove unwanted distractions.

I back up the files for safety and then create a video slideshow for your viewing appointment.

Viewing & Ordering
Twelve working days after your photo shoot, you will be invited to view your portraits and all product options at my home studio.


Frames, Albums & Prints

When you purchase a digital collection, there is no obligation to buy any additional products. Most customers love the option of adding extra prints, wall art or digitals. When you see your portraits, you may order something for the wall or an album. My product menu is individually priced, allowing flexibility because everyone wants something different.

We are proud to be the only supplier in South Wales of The Original Photoblocks products and classic, vintage and modern style frames.
