Testimonials
Our experience with Marta as been fantastic, I came across her page after looking at so many photographers in Nottingham area, until i finally reached her page and I felt in love with her photographies, we organised everything before the big day, I was nervous at first as i never had a photography session in a studio before, but she made me and my partner felt super comfortable. She is so friendly and open she made me feel very relaxed and that made us enjoy the morning with her. I and my partner highly recommend her, the quality of her pictures, the outfits she provides are amazing. We’ll definitely go back once our baby comes.

Maternity Photography isn’t just about taking photos; it’s about capturing the essence of your journey. The soft glow of motherhood, the excitement of the Baby bump, and the joy of anticipating your new arrival are all moments worth freezing in time. It’s about celebrating your body’s incredible ability to nurture new life and capturing the emotions that come with it.

The photos make the image of memories always clearer

This text will probably be helpful, especially when a woman is expecting a baby for the first time and has never participated in such a session before.

I think most of us have never seen pictures of our mother while she was pregnant. There were different times then and pregnancy photography did not exist. It is a pity because many parents would gladly recall these moments, and the photos make the image of memories always clearer. 

Fortunately, this has changed now and we live in a time when taking a photo session during pregnancy is something natural and more and more mothers-to-be realise how wonderful this souvenir is – one and only. What does it actually look like? About it below.

Beautiful Maternity Photos - FOR WHOM?

It would seem that the pregnancy session, for obvious reasons, is dedicated only to women, because they have the pleasure (although sometimes with many difficulties) to experience the blessed state and carry another life under their hearts. Meanwhile, the partner also plays a huge part in this, supporting the mother of her child as best she can.

Pregnancy Session

So a pregnancy session can be for the woman herself, and you can take part in it together. Of course, the final choice is yours alone, because the photographer is usually prepared for both variants and sees no obstacles to taking one or two people in it.

The pros and cons of

The Maternity shoot

However, it is worth making a decision in advance and passing it on to the photographer during the recording, because depending on the choice, we will receive specific tips on the preparation and course of the session itself. To make this issue a bit easier, below we present the pros and cons of the session in both variants.

Let’s start with the pluses, as there are definitely more of these. First of all, every child has a mother and father, so it is good for both parents to have a wonderful memento of those beautiful, last moments when the child is still in the womb – after all, it is the fruit of two loving people. Second, a pregnancy session with a partner is for the same price, so why shouldn’t your partner take advantage of this opportunity? 

What’s more, the photographer will certainly take both joint shots and each separately, which will additionally increase the scope of your gallery and allow you to create a beautiful album. Third, most men hide their emotions, and while waiting for a baby is a truly special time for them, they tend to deal with it in a slightly less expressive way than women.

Preserve the emotions of the future dad

The thing about photography, however, is that, through the hands of a skilled photographer, it can capture fleeting moments and preserve the emotions of the future dad.

The only downside may be that men, just as they are unable to show emotions, also do not feel very comfortable in front of the lens, which makes them appear a bit less natural in photographs than women. The right approach and the help of the photographer usually turn out to be helpful in these situations, and the end result is liked by both parties.

Pros and Cons of Including a Partner

Pros:

  • Captures the Special Bond between parents and their unborn child.
  • Offers a diverse gallery of photos, from individual portraits to couple shots.
  • Maternity Photos with a partner can symbolise the strength and unity of your growing family.

Cons:

  • Some partners might feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, affecting the session’s natural flow.


A solo Maternity Photo Shoot is an intimate affair, focusing solely on you and your baby-to-be. It’s a celebration of your strength, beauty, and the incredible journey your body is undertaking. There is only you and the baby you carry under your heart. It is beautiful that your motherly love is so strongly exposed.

Choosing the Right Time: When to Schedule Your Session

The ideal time for a Maternity Photography Session is around 32-36 weeks. This period usually showcases the baby bump beautifully while ensuring comfort during the shoot.

Amazing Maternity Photoshoot: More Than Just Pictures

A Maternity Photoshoot is more than just a day in a Photography Studio. It’s about creating Lifetime memories. Choosing the right Maternity Photographer can make all the difference. Look for someone who understands the nuances of such a shoot, someone who can make the experience a Lifetime experience filled with Lots of fun.

A maternity shoot is the best gift that future parents can give themselves and their children

Pregnancy is an extremely special time – a time of real waiting, and a pregnancy session is the best gift that future parents can give themselves and their children. Although the choice of whether you want to participate in it together depends entirely on you, I heartily encourage you to do so. This is confirmed by numerous advantages, which are definitely more than disadvantages.
