It was such a pleasure to be able to photograph Stef & John as they embarked on a new, exciting chapter of their lives together. I love working as a St Albans maternity and Hertfordshire bump photographer as you get to see couples at their absolute most excited as they prepare to meet the new man or lady in their lives!
We headed up to a local forest to take some photos of them before their son joins them later in July. It was so nice wandering round in the late afternoon sun. Well, the sun was trying it’s best anyway! Actually it started pouring just as we got back to the carpark so not badly timed at all!
Good luck Stef & John with the safe arrival of your baby boy!
So although maternity shoots are a relatively new phenomenon in the UK, they’ve been around a fair while in the States. I cannot recommend investing time in having one highly enough. I know that pregnant women often shy away from the camera feeling less than wonderful about themselves and their changing bodies. However, I think this is a short period of time in life and it’s so important to remember how life and our relationships change with us. After all, when your little one is here they are just going to look at these photos and marvel that this was you once upon a time without him or her! I also believe that it’s a great way to mark your relationship before life alters and two becomes three!
If you’re interested in having me document your pregnancy and subsequent new addition to the family, please do get in touch!
