Salisbury Maternity Photographer

"My body has given me the greatest gift of my life"

Maternity Sessions are all about capturing the excitement and anticipation of your pregnancy. For most mothers, they will experience it only once, twice, three times during their lifetime. Pregnancy is a unique time, when your body is undergoing amazing changes to enable you to grow a new human being - that deserves to be captured, documented and celebrated!

Our pregnancy photography is clean and simple. Each session includes our natural studio set, pure white studio and monochrome images.


The ideal time to capture beautiful images of your pregnancy is between 29 and 36 weeks. This is the stage in your pregnancy when you are most likely to feel at your best and maybe even glow a little! By this point you will most likely have a nicely defined bump and not yet be experiencing the discomfort which can occur nearer to your due date. Every pregnancy is different however, so we'll chat about when suits you best.

"I felt completely comfortable during my maternity shoot and was over the moon when I received the pictures."

My pure white minimalist studio provides the perfect backdrop for your maternity images and a beautiful contrast to the black backdrop fine art nudes captured at the end of your session. Use of our studio wardrobe is included in your session so as well as bringing  a favourite outfit of your own, you can choose from a selection of stunningly elegant maternity gowns and bodysuits. 

Why not make your session extra special and pamper yourself with professional hair and makeup done for you in the studio. I work with a wonderful hair and makeup artist who can be booked for your maternity session for an additional fee. Just ask for details when you book your session.

Within 2 weeks of your maternity photo shoot, you'll return to the studio (or we'll catch up via Zoom) to view your images and order your collection. All our maternity collections include your favourite images as beautiful printed products, either folios or albums, and matching digital image files.

Most maternity clients also return to the studio with their newborn baby for a newborn session. It's wonderful to see parents return with their brand new baby and to catch up again during the session.

Peace of mind and flexibility.


Technology is constantly changing. I want to ensure that your beautiful photographs survive the test of time for your children and their children to enjoy. That's why our newborn image collections include a stunning personalised print box and your favourite images as professional, archival quality matted prints. 

Also included in your box is a matching USB containing your chosen digital files - perfect for sharing online, printing yourself and backing up in the cloud.
