Congratulations, your pregnant!
Pregnancy is such an exciting time in any ladies life - every day is a step closer to meeting the little bundle of joy you are growing patiently inside of you.
Maternity sessions are so much fun, and towards the end of my pregnancy I remember I practically lived in jogging bottoms and t-shirts, and nothing fit, and I was tired and hadn't actually got dressed up for quite a few months.
My Maternity sessions not only capture and record professional photo's of your baby bump as a keepsake reminder, but my sessions are designed to make mam's to feel super glam and amazing!
I have photographed a few families expecting their first baby, shooting the traditional pregnancy style photo's wearing casual clothes, and maybe your partner's shirt, and I still capture these as part of your maternity session, but I want to my mama to be's to look and feel......GORGEOUS!
Do something for you, before you time is taken up with your new baby when he or she arrives into the world.
As females, we always feel that we need to have an occasion or an excuse to do something and never much for ourselves. Maternity portraits are often overlooked because of the impending arrival of your baby - maybe you don't feel nice, or your scared of feeling huge - why not celebrate this magical time of what your body is doing...... creating life!
Your body is changing, so embrace those curves and feel super confident and stunning in front of the camera, get those 'WOW' pictures for your facebook or Art work for your home.
I provide a selection of stunning slips, dresses and lacy garments for you to wear during your session
you can wear as many of the items as you wish to change up your looks during your time in the studio, and you can wear as much or a little as you want.
My most requested maternity pose is an implied nude in black & white showing off your new baby bump curves - your body is amazing!
I know how to flatter and poses ladies to look their very best.
Partners and baby's siblings are more than welcome to be involved in your maternity session, making your images much more intimate and special with your family.
Your pregnancy is a very special time, and much like the newborn baby stage, it's an irreplaceable time too.
Nothing to wear?
Don't worry - choose from our ever growing collection of slips, dresses and gowns to wear at your shoot.
Maternity sessions all take place at my studio based in Longridge Nr Preston, Lancashire.
The studio is warm & welcoming with a growing selection of slips, gowns & dresses to wear during your photo shoot.
With a private changing area, you can try on as many of the dresses as you wish to choose the perfect one for you.
I have contacts of local Make up artists should you wish to have your hair and make up professionally done before your shoot.
If you are still un-decided about booking your maternity photo shoot - why not take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
For all ladies who pre-book their newborn baby photo shoot on or before 30 weeks pregnant, you will receive a complimentary mini maternity session at around 36 weeks.
Then simply view your baby bump pictures together with your newborn baby ones, and combine your favourite images into your chosen package.
Some of my client's opted for the complimentary mini maternity session option, and when they saw their images they were happy they had the option to do it as they would not have considered it otherwise and they are so glad they have these memories.

Reaching your 1st Birthday doesn't always mean a cake smash shoot is to be organised (although it is bags of sticky fun) I also offer milestone first birthday portrait sessions too. These can be booked or purchased as gift vouchers.
Archie loved his photo session - so full of smiles & giggles.

This little one was a little star during her session, she started off awake for her session which is great as I captured her with her eyes open, then after a nice big feed of milk she drifted off to sleep ready for her sleepy & curly poses.
I used my new backdrop, which I think complimented her complexion, and the colours were nice and girly.
Not all newborn sessions go as smoothly as this one did, sometimes baby needs soothing and feeding or changing, that is why there is no strict time limit. I work with your baby with his/her needs, and follow their lead. My sessions always allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling to ensure baby is happy through out their session.
I love working with these colours!
We finished her session with a 'prop' shot, and she rocked the bucket so well. :-)
To book your newborn session please contact Sarah on: 07580128801
Sittings are £85 and include a framed desk print of your choice.
I take advanced bookings - to guarantee you a slot (as babies rarely arrive on their due dates I can only allocate a limited number of newborns in my diary per month)
New for 2016 is our fantastic 'New Beginning's Collection'
This collection covers your little one's first year with three separate photo shoots.
The first sitting cover's the important newborn stage in the first two week's of life, capturing the fine details of your tiny baby. (Should you have missed the newborn session, this will be replaced by a 3 month baby session)
Then following on will be our 'Little Sitter's Session' this milestone is when your baby can sit un-aided before they start to crawl. Expressions, laughter & cheekiness of your babies personality are captured.
Finally we finish off with a 12 month session when he/she can stand which shows your babies progression through the year - this session can also be upgraded to a cake smash to celebrate becoming your child's first birthday.
* this is not a photo of the actual frame
At the end of each session when you get to see your photo's for the first time you will pick one image from each session. You are welcome to purchase additional images from each of the sessions too.
After the final sitting, you will then receive your 'Triple Frame' featuring three images - showcasing your babies first year.
