5 Reasons to have a maternity shoot.

I AM SO GLAD I HAD A MATERNITY SHOOT FOR EACH OF MY PREGNANCIES. I LOOK BACK ON THESE PHOTOS WITH VERY FOND MEMORIES, WHICH IS WHY I AM TELLING YOU MY 5 REASONS TO HAVE A MATERNITY SHOOT!

Pregnancy is a journey. From the moment you get that positive pregnancy test, to the first time you hold your baby in your arms. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions, and one that deserves to be documented. At some point when you are holding your newborn, I bet you will miss the kicking and wriggling bump you once had! Here are my top 5 reasons I think every pregnant lady should have their own maternity shoot.

1 | It’s a great excuse to get dressed upand be you!

I lived in leggings and maternity jeans throughout the last trimester as that was pretty much all that still fitted. Taking some time out to do your hair and make up for a maternity shoot really does give you the feel good factor. Enjoy YOUR time. 

2 | Lovely way to get a younger sibling involved

Becoming a big brother or sister for the first time is very exciting. I just love it when other children are involved in the maternity shoot, it’s such a special time. I love capturing the innocence of a child snuggled up to their mothers bump, and the look of excitement from the parents, knowing their family is about to grow bigger!

3 | Gender Reveal

Having a maternity shoot can be a fantastic way to announce to your friends and family the gender of your baby. It’s becoming such a popular thing in the UK, and there are so many creative way to personalise it. Take a look at some brilliant gender reveal ideas here!

4 | So your children can look back on what you looked like when you were carrying them.

My children love looking at my maternity photos. They find it mind blowing to see what I looked like when I was pregnant. I am very proud of my pregnancy photos, and I am so glad my children can look back on them too. 

5 | You wont regret having it done.

Even the most nervous client that comes to me for a maternity shoot, walk out SO happy they’ve had it done. When you see your images, you will be so glad you’ve got those memories to look back on. Your pregnancy is worth celebrating, and having a maternity shoot captures that special journey to motherhood.
