“a grand adventure is about to begin...”

winnie the pooh

Pregnant women are beautiful, even if sometimes they don’t feel it! Capturing images month on month (if you can plan early enough) is a wonderful way to create a lasting memory, culminating in holding the baby in your arms.

Call me as soon as you know you are pregnant & we can plan the best moments to capture forever. But if you come to me late on, don’t worry, the latest pictures I have done before are several days past the due date, so it’s never too late until it’s too late! Pregnancy is an intensely personal thing, but I do always encourage partners to join in, to share the joy.

Here you will find some samples of my work to help you decide on the type of photographs you’d like, all the costs so there are no surprises, a booking form to book yourself in (or a gift voucher purchase) & some preparation notes. Simply fill the booking form in or, if it’s easier, just call me!

“a baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die” - mary mason

‘Mums to Be’ Gallery


$299 incl gst.


  1. *Pregnancy shoots are about the bump, primarily, but inevitably other areas of the body are part of the final image, so skin preparation is important. Try not to wear any tight underwear or clothing for at least 24 hours before the session.

  2. *Bring anything that is special to the child - it could be an heirloom, an inherited shawl or just a small pair of booties you’ve bought.

  3. *Bring a large, loose shirt or shawl or something similar to drape and conversely, bring any tight, stretchy clothes you have.

  4. *Try & keep it simple, plain colours if possible.

  5. *But most importantly, just relax & don’t worry about these guidelines if you don’t want to!


Please do just call me if you have any questions or want me to book you in. Otherwise, you can go ahead & fill in the appropriate form, depending on whether the session is for yourself or a gift, then you’ll be taken to my payment page where you can choose to pay by credit card, PayPal, bank transfer, cheque or cash.

Weekends & evenings are in high demand, so I do need a 20% deposit paid to secure any weekend appointment.

You can read all about my gift vouchers on the pricing page if you’d like to know more.

What’s included...

  1. *An unhurried studio portrait session, approximately 60-90 minutes, in a purpose-built studio (I can do outdoor sessions as well)

  2. *$200-worth of hand prints, to be selected by viewing day, or within 6 weeks of the session, whichever is sooner. (See my handprint price sheet to understand what you can get for that)

  3. *Membership of the ‘baby bump’ club.

  4. *Under the club rules, you can return for up to 8 further quick sessions during your pregnancy, free of charge

  5. *Under the club rules, you can bring your baby back, once born, for further free of charge sessions, until they turn 18!

  6. *A money-back guarantee. If you don’t like any of the images, you can have another session free of charge, or your money back.

  7. *An online pre-viewing gallery of your session images, so you can see them in the comfort of your own home & share them with friends & family anywhere in the world.

  8. *Complimentary lifetime storage of your image files with the Image Archives, so they will always be there for you to see again.
