Hints & Tips: Maternity Photography Manchester

What is a Maternity Photoshoot?

Our Maternity photoshoot sessions are a fun and glamorous way of capturing the last stage of your pregnancy. We suggest that this is booked in at around the 8 month mark so your bump is at its biggest and we can show it off nicely!

How do I Book A Maternity Photoshoot?

Firstly you will need a voucher. If you haven't got yours yet these are available from our online shop via the "Buy Vouchers" tab. When you are ready to book in the first stage of your photoshoot which is your Maternity session, simply give us a call on 0161 286 3311 and press option 1 - One of our friendly bookings team will be happy to assist you in finding the right time slot for your portrait session. We recommend that your maternity session is left until 8 months to ensure bump is at its biggest.

How long does the maternity photoshoot take?

The maternity photoshoot will take approximately 1 hour. In this time we will use a number of different backgrounds and sets to create a nice variety of stunning images throughout your photoshoot. 


What shall I bring for my maternity session?

To get the best variety in your photoshoot, please bring 2 outfits and one set of plain underwear. The tighter your clothes the better as we will be able to see more of bump! Please avoid swing style dresses or anything too baggy. Shoes are not essential but bring a pair that match your outfit, then we will go barefoot. You can also bring anything that make the photos a bit more personal. A scan picture, a pair of booties or even a small teddy. We can then also reuse these when you come back for your newborn session.

Does the maternity photoshoot include makeup?

Our maternity photoshoot don't include makeup. These photoshoots are usually done quite naturally however you are more than welcome to wear makeup if you wish. Please make sure this is done before you arrive at the studio. You can even add on an optional makeup session with one of our own makeup artists for just £25. This will take an extra hour and will take place before your session. Please mention you are interested when you book.

When will we get to see the final pictures?

Once you have been in for your newborn session, we will then book you in a viewing roughly a week later. There you can get comfy, grab some tissues, and see all your pictures from both your maternity and newborn sessions! We will show you a bespoke slideshow and then you select the images you would like from your photoshoots and how you would like to take them home!

Can we decide after the viewing session?

The Bump to Baby photoshoot series includes 1 viewing session, the only way to revisit the images from a shoot at a later date after this would be to book another viewing session which are available at £50.00 each.
