Waiting on Baby {Petrie Maternity Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago I was asking people to volunteer to be my guinea pigs as I prepared a portfolio to move into the professional photography circle.  This lovely couple were one of those volunteers when they were pregnant with this hansom young who is about to become a big brother!  I hope you enjoy your photos and congratulations on your baby girl!

Rachel and Andrew {Shorncliffe Maternity Photographer}

The rain clouds were hanging low over Shorncliffe when I got to meet this beautiful little family.  I honestly didn’t know if the rain would hold off for us but we were on a tight timeline with mumma at 38 weeks.

In the end the rain held off for us and we were able to capture some very special images for this gorgeous family before they welcomed their baby girl into the world.

Awaiting a beautiful little girl

This mumma-to-be responded to my request for volunteers for lifestyle maternity shoots.  But there was a little secret we need to keep.  You see mum new the sex of the baby but dad did not,  This nursery was lovingly prepared in secret and we have been waiting on the birth announcement to share this little album with you.

Just look at this gorgeous and determined lady on her due date adding the finishing touches

Adding the finishing touches

This little family are now cuddling their little girl so here is your full gallery.  Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home to document this important time.  I hope you enjoy these pictures now that your little girl is earthside.

From Belly to Birth

I honestly couldn’t decide what to write about tonight, bellies or babies – they are both my favourites!

I do have a super special soft spot for gorgeous maternity photos, probably because I always wish I had gotten them done myself!  When I was pregnant with my son 11 years ago it wasn’t really the done thing, plus by the time I finished working I looked like a whale.  With my daughter it was definitely something we wanted to do but I was waiting for the perfect time – I wanted that big beautiful round belly you see in the maternity magazines… but then I just got HUGE and felt so un-pretty and un-wonderous that there was no way I wanted a stranger taking photos of me. One of those moments I wish I could travel back in time and say to myself – Wake up! You are only pregnant with this child once and it is beautiful – it doesn’t matter if you still fit into your skinny jeans at 28 weeks or if you ditched any form of recognisable pant for a potato sack at 16 week – that body of yours is miraculous and trust me – 3 years from now you will look back at the happy snaps someone managed to get of you with your eyes half closed with that beautiful belly and it will be the most treasured picture you have.

So, what’s my point? Maternity photos are for everyone!  The best time is around 34-36wks before you get too uncomfortable.  I won’t lie to you, having maternity photos taken isn’t just a walk in the park… although we can do that – but to get those “ahhhh” shots it sometimes involves a little walking, sitting down, getting back up again and a little more walking. Nothing too adventurous – I’ve been there, I know how it feels 🙂

AND I have completely run out of time writing this post so the baby section will have to wait until tomorrow – washing up is calling 🙂
