What a beautiful Mummy to be from today's Maternity Session.
We had a great session and I am very much looking forward to welcoming this lovely couple back to the studio with their Baby in the New Year for their Newborn Session.
Maternity Sessions are a wonderful way to celebrate the impending arrival of your New Baby. The sessions are best scheduled for between 32 and 36 weeks so that bump is clearly visible but before Mum becomes too uncomfortable or incase baby decides to make an early appearance! The sessions are very relaxed and it's great to be a part of this exciting time. It's something that most of us only do a couple of times and it's wonderful to be able to capture this incredible time in a woman's life.
I also find that it leads to a much more relaxed Newborn session. All Newborn Sessions are relaxed, informal and very special. I encourage Clients to make themselves at home and even bring their slippers if they wish. However when a Client has had a Maternity Session with me I find that the Newborn Session is even more relaxed and special as the Clients know where the studio is, they have already done the journey so there is no stress on the morning of the session. They have already met me and we've had our chit chat and done our small talk and they have seen where they are bringing their precious little person to. I find that it eases all those little concerns that may be in the back of New Parents heads when they are considering booking a Newborn Session. Let's face it we would all much rather turn up somewhere we are comfortable is safe for our new baby and of course the less stress the better!
So if you are considering a Newborn Session for your baby or if you are thinking about purchasing a Newborn Session as a gift for expectant Parents then you may also wish to consider a Maternity Session too.
