Bringing a tiny human into this world is where all the fun begins…
Firstly, congratulations on your growing family! Bringing a child into this world is one of the most amazing experiences we as humans can go through and maternity photography is one of the best ways to pamper yourself prior to the big event. In case you’ve been thinking of booking a pregnancy shoot or you are simply wondering if this experience is the right one for you, read on.
Many new mums regret not having high-quality photographs taken during their pregnancy. While snapping a few quick shots with your phone camera can be fun, professional photographs of you, your baby bump and your family present a completely different experience. What if, a few months from now, you decide you want to hang a stunning photograph of your baby bump in the bedroom or you would like to create an album capturing your journey into motherhood from the start? Our images come in the best quality possible – for immediate or later use!
We recommend booking your Maternity session between 34-36 weeks of your pregnancy. However, each pregnancy is different and so we believe as a mum, you know best! If you feel that your belly is well defined at the earlier stages, you are welcome to book your session much earlier than that.
You will be able to choose from a variety of styles including posed or more natural looking, fashion or fine art portraits. Scrow down for some inspiration! During the initial consultation, we will take the time to discover the right style and approach for you.
A big part of the session is ensuring that you look and feel completely comfortable on camera. We’ll chat about the look that you’d like us to create and spend time prepping you for the photos. Nothing is rushed, in fact, your session is going to be very relaxing.
Where do I find you?
Our studio is located at 583 Garratt Lane, London SW18 4S.
When should I book my maternity shoot?
Maternity sessions are best booked between the 34th and 36th week of your pregnancy. This is when your belly will be well defined but the pregnancy fatigue would not have settled in just yet.
How do I book my pregnancy session?<br />
We will work around your schedule to ensure we find the most suitable slot. You can book by ringing us on 07915 156372 or by sending a message via the Contact page.
How to prepare for my pregnancy shoot?
When preparing for your maternity session, please dress comfortably. Avoid wearing underwear that is too dark to match our maternity gowns and dresses (or alternatively bring two sets of underwear with you, in light and dark colours). Also, make sure there are no tight straps that could leave marks on your skin, as these take a while to fade away. There’s a variety of dresses and materials available at the studio, however you are also welcome to bring additional outfits to your session and get changed at the studio.
You can also bring items related to your hobbies, work, and personal interests. They can be a lovely addition and a great personal touch.
When would my photos be ready?
Your ordering appointment will be booked within two weeks of your session. You will have the option to view your gallery and choose a product, should you wish so.
Can my partner and children join the shoot?
Yes, there are no additional costs involved in having your family there with you for the shoot (a family dog is also welcome!).
"AGGI MADE ME FEEL COMPLETY AT EASE AND EVEN INVOLVED MY HUBBY AND ONE-YEAR-OLD."
I was fortunate to have a maternity shoot with Aggi and I could not have been more pleased. Having had various photoshoots before I have to say I enjoyed this one the most! Aggi made me feel completely at ease and even involved my hubby and one-year-old. The Richmond park setting was beautiful and the photos are fantastic. I’ll be booking Aggi for my newborn shoot. Thank you for a lovely experience x
