Maternity Photography Scarborough

Maternity Photography Session at Studio41 Photographers Scarborough

Why not choose to have a beautiful maternity shoot to capture your pregnancy

Every pregnancy is different and is a whirlwind of emotions and excitement. My aim is to create a lovely piece of art that will celebrate this beautiful moment in your life. The maternity session in designed and styled with your comfort level and modesty in mind. If you take a look through this page you will be able to see what type of images to expect.

When to book your maternity session

Maternity photography sessions are normally photographed at 32-36 week. This is just a guideline and you can book as early or late as you please. Your baby may come early so you don’t want to leave it too late. To make sure I am available please contact me around 28-32 weeks.


Can my partner or child be in the pictures?

You are more than welcome to invite your partner or child and they are encouraged to join. It can also help having someone there for moral support.

How do I prepare for the session?

Please come with your hair and make-up all ready. I would suggest applying a little more make-up then you would usually wear.

Try not to wear tight underwear and clothing on the day of session to prevent marks on your skin

What should I wear for my maternity photo session?

During your maternity session I would advice on doing some dressed and undressed images to capture your beautiful bump. Some of the more popular clothing items are: Lingerie, Form fitting dresses, Flowy maxi dresses, Lacy/sheer robes ,Bandeau tops

Extra items to bring: Scan photograph, a pair of your baby’s shoes.

Do I have to be nude?

All of my maternity sessions are different and they are customised and tailored to my clients comfort level. Some clients prefer clean and simple artistic nude photographs, while others prefer to wear less revealing outfits or to be fully clothed.

Should I be concerned about stretch marks?

Stretch marks are a normal sign of being pregnant and most of my clients have them. I suggest to embrace them as they are little memories of being pregnant but if you prefer not to have them in your final prints then you are more than welcome to have them digitally taken out.

Will my images stay private?

If permission is given I like to share a few of my favorite images from the session on my Facebook Business Page. This is a great way for you to be able to share and show the images with friends and family.

Privacy is taken seriously and your maternity images will not be used in any way without your permission.

What will happen at your maternity photography session?

There will be an initial telephone consultation and the session fee will be taken on time of booking and will be used to secure your date and time. The session will take around an hour and during the time I will invite your partner or child to have their photographs with you too. Straight after the session we will head to the viewing room where we will view all the images taken and then you will be able to order your images. Three weeks after the session your prints will be ready for collection.
