A backlit photo can be a beautiful and dramatic way to capture your pregnancy. Find a spot with a beautiful sunset or sunrise and have the photographer capture the soft light behind you. This can be photographed in the studio as well. We can also create a silhouettte of your pregnant belly and capture the beautiful colours of a sunset sky.

Studio style

A studio photoshoot allows you to control the lighting and create a more intimate and personal atmosphere. You can wear a variety of outfits and use props like flowers or baby shoes to create a unique and personalized look.

For a more edgy and urban vibe, consider taking photos in a cityscape. You can use graffiti walls or colorful buildings as a backdrop, and wear clothes that complement the urban setting.

Family photos

Family photos that include your partner, other children and even your pets in the photoshoot to capture the excitement and joy of your growing family. You can take the photos in your home, backyard, or at a favourite outdoor location.

Remember to have fun and be creative with your pregnancy photoshoot. This is a special time in your life, and you’ll want to cherish these memories for years to come.
