About The Sessions


About Maternity Photographic Sessions

Congratulations. You are about to bring a baby into the world, and life is about to change forever! The miracle of pregnancy is such a special time in a woman’s life, with amazing changes happening inside your body.


Don’t worry if you feel a little nervous. During your personalised Maternity Photographic Session with PhotoWorthy Images, I will help you to feel special, beautiful and confident, as we preserve this fleeting, but incredible time of your life forever.


Sessions can be fun and playful, or classical and elegant.


Many of our maternity clients choose to have their session in the PhotoWorthy Images Studio, where we have some beautiful, flowing gowns in a variety of style and colours, specifically designed for Maternity portraits. With soft and dreamy lighting, we can create elegant images, which celebrate the magic and emotions of your expectant motherhood.


If you prefer to take your session outside, we can choose from some amazing locations in our ‘Outdoor Studio’ at beautiful Kairaki Beach, or I can meet you at a location that is meaningful and special to you to create some wonderful, artistic portraits.


Not your first child? You are very welcome bring your husband/partner and children to your session. It is a wonderful opportunity to capture some tender, loving moments, which show your older children’s excitement about the imminent arrival of their new brother or sister.


Although of course the session is still 'all about you' first and foremost!


The best time to have your Maternity Photographic Session is when you are around 7–8 months pregnant. I’d love photograph you at this very special stage in your life’s journey.


"I just wanted to say thank you for last week and my maternity shoot. I am not a big photo person to be honest and was nervous about the shoot. Will and I both left feeling really happy. We are so excited to see the pictures. I think you are so friendly and you made me feel at ease and also made me feel like a beautiful mummy to be."

"I feel you definitely achieved JOY as that is what I felt afterwards so thank you again!"
