Pregnancy can be so different for each and every Mum and at the time it may not feel important to document your growing bump on anything other than the occasional phone photo to compare the growing bump along the way.

It turns out to be one of the biggest regrets of new Mum’s that they didn’t document more of their pregnancy or even book in for a professional maternity photoshoot. 

Yet most of what we see when looking at professional bump photographs is naked bumps, lingerie and beautifully draped material…. Did you know that’s not the only option? 

Press play below to see what a more relaxed maternity photoshoot in your own home could look like…

Relaxed Maternity Photography and Film At Home

Imagine if you could enjoy a more natural and relaxed pregnancy photoshoot in your own home?

Your own clothes, your own home comforts and being able to capture a little bit of your own bump life before your little one arrives.

No pressure, no posing and plenty of time for pee breaks….

Parents to be – Natural Pregnancy Photography

Once your little newborn arrives the moment has been missed to document those precious pregnancy days.

Not only the growing bump and your pregnancy glow (if you were lucky enough to get the glow) but also a reminder about what life was like for you all before a new baby arrived.

Bump To Baby – Natural Photography

Capturing a little bit of life as a couple, ready and excited to see how life will change once baby arrives. 

Maybe even all the little details at home that you’ve excitedly been working on.

Their new nursery, the tiny newborn clothes and the cutest little hat for when they have their first trip outside.

New Parents and the Little Details…

As new parents to be they excitedly shared a little about what they’ve been collecting during their pregnancy and the gorgeous vintage children’s books Maik had bought in both English and German.

The images I feel that will go on to tell the story of their pregnancy will be storytime with bump are these moments.

When she hears Daddy reading in German baby gets very wriggly and it feels very special to have been able to capture that for them only a few weeks before baby was due
