Outdoor Maternity Photography Session

Hertfordshire maternity photographer

Julianne & Suny got in touch last summer to arrange an outdoor maternity photography session with their daughter, we discussed ideas for the location before they deciding on Ashridge Estate. Ashridge is one of my favourite locations for outdoor shoots because it has a such a beautiful variety of backdrops to work with and the size of the woodland makes it easy to find a quite space away from the public (even on the busiest summer days).

Speaking to Julianne on the lead up to her session it was clear she had some wonderful plans with regards to outfits and accessories, but her efforts to get the family coordinating for the shoot surpassed my expectations. They all looked so beautiful as a little family and Julianne’s dress worked perfectly to show off her lovely baby bump.

On the day of the shoot we had beautiful weather, the sun was shinning, the grass was dry and there weren’t many people around, what more could you ask for. As soon as we started the session I knew it was going to be an amazing shoot. Julianne & Suny’s daughter was the sweetest and happiest little girl, she got involved with everything we ask of her and added so much fun to the session.

As with every family maternity session I captured a variety of shots including full family, couple, mum and daughter and of course a few of just mum and bump too.

These sessions are not just about documenting the baby bump but also about documenting the couple and the family as they are before baby arrives. Capturing the excitement around baby’s arrival and little details that will forever remind you how you felt throughout the pregnancy.

I absolutely loved this outdoor maternity photography session and hope it give you an idea of the special moments you can capture from a session like this.

Whether the maternity session is just for mum, the couple or a growing family I am always happy to adapt the session for peoples individual needs. Every family and couple is different so I make sure my portrait sessions are flexible so I can capture those important moments as you want them documented.

If you are pregnant – Congratulations! If you would like to document this wonderful stage in your life as your family grows then please get in touch for more information or to book your session today xx
