Maternity Photography Guide

My Maternity Style

I love to create natural Maternity portraits, full of love, using beautiful natural light to create soft glowing images. Through gently pose you to get the best angles and light, I then let the magic happen. Capturing families, couples and portraits where not everyone is always looking at the camera but the connection and love is recorded for years to come. My goal is always to make photoshoots a fun and relaxed experience for all, which hopefully shows in the photos and some of the kind words below.

“Katie has photographed our family perfectly. Katie put us all at ease straight away and not even a little rain – could sway her calm and relaxed approach to capturing the perfect shots”

What to wear for an outdoor pregnancy photoshoot

The photos taken here are amongst the beautiful Aug-Sept heathers but this gorgeous Mama to be is not outshined by her surroundings wearing a complimentary floor length dress. I always want people to feel comfortable, themselves and confident. If asked about what to wear for a maternity shoot I would highly recommend floor-length, Maxi – floaty dresses. This draws attention to your beautiful baby curves whilst creating longer lines drawing the eye across photograph. Soft pastels, neutrals, blues and greys all work beautifully with skin tones and mother natures colours throughout the year.

When should I book my Maternity shoot

To guarantee your preferred date it is best to book your maternity shoot straight after your 14week scan. Certain months can be busier than others and weekends book up quickly. I know how life can be a rollercoaster, so will of course always try my best to book you in or suggest someone else who can.

I generally recommend booking a shoot in at 30 to 34 weeks as an ideal time to capture your baby bump.
