Katerina & Ben – Maternity Portraits



It was a rainy afternoon last Saturday, when this lovely couple came for their Maternity Portraits. Towards the end of the session, we braved the weather and captured a couple of quick shots in the paddock. But not before some fun in the studio 🙂 I like to keep Maternity sessions fairly simple. Usually using a white or black background. I have some wraps and drapes to use,  plus a couple of maternity gowns to choose from. However, I also encourage clients to bring their own outfits they are comfortable in.




These first-time parents can’t wait to meet their little one soon. They don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl. My guess is it will be a girl, but I’m never right! You’d think I’d have some sort of professional insight into these things, but no, not really! So I’ll wait patiently to hear their news. Either way, this bub already has a few wonderful cousins to play with, who also can’t wait to meet him or her. Stay tuned for more images of their Newborn session, once bub has arrived!

Maternity Portraits can be taken in the studio, or outdoors on the property. More recently though, I have had more requests to do a mixture of indoor and outdoor shots, which seems to work well. Outdoor sessions always work best in the late afternoon, usually around an hour and a half before sunset. This ensures the best lighting conditions, as the sun gets low in the sky (as long as it’s not raining!). Maternity sessions are best scheduled for around 34-36 weeks of pregnancy. It’s important to book ahead, to ensure availability at the right time for you. If you would like to book your maternity session, please contact Lee and myself, and we will be happy to discuss all the details with you.
