It’s hard to describe the emotion you can capture during a maternity shoot; a mother gently caressing her tummy, gazing lovingly at her unborn baby. A father, tenderly kissing the baby bump, already feeling a sense of immense pride. The sense of wonder in a toddler’s eyes, still trying to comprehend that a new baby brother or sister is inside Mommy’s tummy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME IN MY PREGNANCY TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED?
The best time to photograph your bump is between 34 -36 weeks. At this stage of your pregnancy you have a nice round bump but it is not yet too uncomfortable to get in some of the poses.
DO YOU WORK ON WEEKENDS?
Unfortunately no, all of my sessions are booked Monday to Friday.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There is a session fee of R2,650. This covers my time and expertise and includes your makeup and hair styling on the day. You are mostly paying for a wonderful experience that you will remember forever, it is such a special time in your life and we want to capture that for you.
IS MAKE-UP INCLUDED?
Yes, the R2,650 session fee includes your hair and make-up with a fully qualified make-up artist. If you wish a second (or third) person to be in your images that will also require make-up there is an additional fee of R650 per person.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
I have a selection of outfits, fabrics and accessories that we can use to style your session, but it is always a great idea to bring a few of your favourite dresses and outfits along. Once you have booked your session I will send you a guide on what to bring to your session.
IS IT POSSIBLE FOR MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN TO BE INCLUDED IN THE SESSION?
Of course! Having a new baby is an exciting time for everyone in the family and I would love to document that for you.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE IMAGES THAT ARE TAKEN?
Roughly 2 weeks after your session.
CAN I BUY JUST THE DIGITAL FILES?
The session include both the printed and digital copies of photographs in your collection. The digital files cannot be bought separately. Professional pictures deserve to be displayed on only the best quality professional products and are the only sure way to archive your beautiful memories.
HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU TAKE?
On the day of your session I will photograph you in different outfits and poses. You will then receive 15 beautifully edited photographs after your session.
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO BASED?
My studio is based in Monavoni, Centurion. It is conveniently located off the N14 highway at the R55 offramp. The studio is inside the Silverstone Country Estate.
CAN WE TAKE SOME PHOTO’S OUTSIDE?
If the weather permits, absolutely. However my speciality is definitely indoor shots using natural lighting.
HOW DO I BOOK MY SESSION?
You will need to arrange your session directly with me, sessions are booked according to my diary availability. Please send me an enquiry form and I will get back to you with some options. Please include your estimated due date. Otherwise feel free to call me to discuss your session and get you booked into my diary.
