This is my beautiful friend Lara who is expecting her first baby next week!!! Her partner was working away unexpectedly on the day of the shoot, so rather than postpone, we went ahead with the session and had lots of fun with different outfits and poses.
Bryanston Pine Forest is a lovely venue for photos and we timed the shoot so it was late in the afternoon to make the most of the great light (you’ll read lots about late afternoon light on my website). Lara was 36 weeks pregnant when we took these photos and positively glowing. I generally advise clients to plan maternity photos between 32 and 36 weeks, depending on the size of the bump and how Mom is feeling.
I love to capture personality and ‘moments’ in my photo shoots. My style of photography isn’t about overly posed pictures, I prefer to interact with the people I’m photographing and take photos that show their personalities and happiness.
I’m super excited about this little baby’s arrival, and I promise to post some pics as soon as I can!
