Maternity Portraiture

Maternity sessions are the perfect way to celebrate the precious life growing within. These sessions are available exclusively to parents who book a newborn session with me. You can be photographed with your partner or alone. If you want siblings to join then I recommend booking a family session and incorporate the maternity images into it.

1-2 hour photo session on-location, I help with the selection of where to shoot.
Use of my vintage props that includes beautiful blankets, chairs and stools.
Pre-session pack with clothing guidance and session ideas.
Pre-session planner to help your session flow well.
Up to 30 hand-edited portraits to select from following your shoot.
Exclusive and beautiful crafted wall art, frames, prints and digital product options are available to purchase following your session.



On-Location Option - The photoshoots take place within 25 miles of CF72. I can shoot further away for an additional fee. I have a list of locations you can select from or we can discuss the ideal place for your family over the phone.

Sessions starting during the first hour after sunrise and about 1.5 hours before sunset, this will differ depending on the time of year. I will help you have a smooth and easy photo session, and I provide you with a checklist, planning tips, clothing options and tricks to help the shoot go well! This is best if Dad and an older sibling are coming along.

Studio Option - Available in my home studio, which is about 17 minutes west of Cardiff and is easy to get to.

Sessions are midweek, starting at 9.45 am until 2 pm. Dad-to-be is welcome to be photographed with you. I will help you have a smooth and easy photo session, and I provide you with a checklist, planning tips, clothing options and tricks to help the shoot go well!

What Clients Say

Cardiff Maternity Photographer | I love my photographs. What a fantastic end result! I will forever be grateful to have these beautiful photographs as a wonderful memory of such an amazing time in my life. - Billie

After The Session

I carefully select up to 30 of the best images, and over a few days, I edit them in Photoshop to make everyone look well-rested.
I back up the files for safety and then create a video slideshow.

Approximately two weeks after your photo shoot, you will be invited to see the images and product options at my home studio. I will help you choose your favourite portraits and decide how you would like to enjoy them in the future. You can browse all the products, and then I will create mock-ups of the images in products to help you decide what to order.
I take payment for orders on the day. Payment plans are available as well.


All prints, digital files, wall art products and collections are separately priced à la carte. This allows you the freedom to choose what you want after you see your portraits, then you can decide what products to buy! I find my customers prefer this flexibility because everyone wants something different, some want all the digital files and a framed art for the wall, some want small or larger multiple wall displays. Typically customers spend between £495-£2550 on products respectively.
