From Bump to Baby: Documenting Your Journey with Maternity and Newborn Photography

Congratulations! You’re embarking on the incredible journey of parenthood. As excitement and anticipation build, you might be considering how to preserve these precious moments in a way that transcends fleeting memories.

This is where maternity and newborn photography come in. These specialised sessions capture more than just beautiful photographs – they document a transformative time in your life, forever etching the anticipation, love, and wonder surrounding the arrival of your little one.

Capturing the Glow of Motherhood

Maternity photography celebrates the miracle of life growing within you. Bathed in soft light, these sessions showcase your radiant beauty and the undeniable bond you share with your unborn child. Whether you prefer a dreamy and ethereal aesthetic or a more natural and intimate portrayal, experienced maternity photography will create stunning images that capture the essence of motherhood.

Welcoming Your Tiny Miracle

Newborn photography goes beyond posed smiles. Skilled photographers have a gentle touch and an understanding of newborn behavior, allowing them to capture candid moments of pure joy and vulnerability. From the delicate features of your sleeping baby to the first precious interactions as a family, these sessions document the early days filled with love, wonder, and awe.

Preserving Memories You’ll Cherish

As your baby grows, these photographs will become cherished keepsakes. You’ll revisit them to reminisce about those fleeting first weeks, the tiny fingers and toes that have since gotten bigger, and the innocent expressions that transformed into mischievous smiles. These sessions are not just for you; they are a legacy you’ll pass down, allowing future generations to share in the momentous occasion of your child’s arrival.

Choosing the Right Photographer

Finding a photographer who aligns with your vision and prioritises your comfort is crucial. Look for someone with experience in maternity and newborn photography, someone who demonstrates a gentle touch and expertise in handling newborns. Their portfolio should showcase a style you connect with, whether it’s classic and timeless or light and airy. Don’t hesitate to ask questions during consultations; a good photographer will listen to your desires and answer any concerns you may have.

Investing in a Lifetime of Memories

Maternity and newborn photography is an investment, not just of money, but in capturing a time capsule of emotions and experiences. These photographs will become treasured keepsakes, serving as a constant reminder of the wonder of new motherhood and the birth of your precious little one.

Display your photo for everyday enjoyment

For my clients, one of the biggest reasons to book that shoot is to produce physical images you can not only treasure but actually display for once!

We’re all guilty of forgetting to print off phone photos (yes, even photographers!) so having beautiful images you can frame, display, and enjoy every day really does make you smile and brighten up your home.

 You can also have the digital images to save in case you want to print more copies for family members later on, so feel free to add this to your package.

What do my newborn clients say about me?

Here are a few comments from previous customers:

Gemma said:

Absolutely superb photographer!
I went to Summer’s studio with my 5 week old baby and was welcomed with such warmth. Summer was amazing with my baby and she made me feel at ease throughout our session.
The photographs were gorgeous; so much that I struggled to choose which ones I wanted in my package. I received my prints today and I’m over the moon – they’re just beautiful! Stunning work. Thank you so much Summer.
I highly recommend Summer Johnston Photography and I will definitely be back in the future for another photo session.

“Her professional and relaxed approach really puts you at ease and brings out the best of you in your photographs.”

What Happens After Maternity and Newborn Photography Session?

After we’ve completed your shoot, I’ll spend some time carefully editing and picking out the best images to add to your gallery.

Around 10 days later, you’ll receive an invitation to come into my studio for your ordering appointment. Here, you’ll be able to look through your photographs and select a package of digital and printed images. This is often quite an emotional experience (don’t worry, I have tissues!).

I’ll also show you sample products you might wish to purchase, including framed prints, canvases, and albums.
