Every month I offer a limited number of Mini Maternity Sessions on Friday mornings.

These shorter maternity photo shoots offer all the benefits of a professional photo shoot experience with a smaller time commitment, and a smaller price tag. They’re perfect for mums to be who want a handful of beautiful images to remember their pregnancy by.

On this page you can find out more about what’s included in a maternity mini session. At the end of the page you can also check the next maternity mini session dates and book your place.

  • During the session I’ll guide you through a series of photographs and give you plenty of guidance about posing. You can include your partner in the session too, but these short sessions are not suitable for children.

What To Expect From Your Mini Maternity Session Experience

The Ideal Time for a Maternity Photo Shoot

The best time to book your maternity photo shoot in London is between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. This window is ideal because your bump is nicely rounded, giving you a beautiful silhouette, while still allowing you to move comfortably.

If you’re expecting twins or multiples, or if you have other concerns about timing, we can work together to find the perfect time for your session. Just send me a message at the end of this page to get in touch, and we can work out the best time for you to book your session.

Before Your Mini Maternity Session

Before your session I’ll ask you to complete a short, online questionnaire so that I can tailor the shoot to you.

You’ll also receive emails from me with tips to help you feel prepared, including a ‘what to wear’ guide to help you choose flattering and comfortable outfits for your shoot. Plus, I’ll give you tips on coordinating with your partner if they’re joining you too.

What Happens On The Photo Shoot Day?

During the session I’ll guide you through different photographs and poses so that we capture a good variety of different images.

I’ll give you lots of guidance about where to sit, stand or look and what to do so you don’t have to worry about feeling awkward or ‘doing it wrong.’

Once we’ve finished the photographs you can relax! Lots of clients choose to make a day of it and stay in the local area to have coffee, lunch or a walk.
