Why should you choose me?
Pregnancy is just the most magical time, feeling your baby growing inside of you. You're thinking about your little one, what he or she may be like and counting down the days until your precious baby is cradled in your arms. Pregnancy can really take it's toll, I know myself! Why not do something for yourself? Celebrate your new curves with a maternity session, I am so passionate about celebrating this special time in your life and capturing every woman's unique beauty.
Where is the studio?
Maternity photography sessions with Photography By Leela take place in my Hatfield studio. My specialised photography studio is built in my garden where I create the perfect environment for you to feel safe and comfortable. I supply all gowns and dresses and you are free to take your pick. If you have something specific that you would like to wear, feel free to bring it along!
There is street parking available and the nearest train station is Hatfield station.
When should I book?
Maternity photo-shoots are best suited for pregnant ladies in their third trimester. Generally between weeks 32 and 36, however every pregnancy is different so we can be a little flexible here.
How do I book?
Email, call or contact me here. I take on a limited number of bookings per month. A £75 non refundable retainer is required to secure your booking, this will later be deducted from your final order. You will be sent my portrait contract to sign and once I've received it back you will be all booked in (Yay)!
Food for thought
Before your session you should think about where you want to put your images, how do you want them displayed in your home? Ask yourself these questions when deciding on your colour choices for your session. Many of my clients opt for neutral tones with a touch of colour, colour tones that match the colouring to your home decor.
Maternity Photograohy Pricing
My maternity photography pricing starts at £299, this includes 10 high resolution digital photographs with 10 matching 6" x 9" mounted prints.
After the minimum spend (£299) individual digital photographs are available at £30 each.
Wall art options are available to add on to any package. I understand that having the flexibility of buying the digital files allows you to produce prints, enlargements and albums. However, I firmly believe that the beautiful images we are going to create deserve to be displayed using only the best quality products. Additional prints can be purchased at the viewing.
Soon, you will have a tiny mini human to take care of! Photographs will always remind you of what a gift you are, and how incredible our bodies can be, you’re creating life! Maternity photography sessions are a great way to remember where the bond began.
Partners and siblings are welcome to join you for your session, though please do let me know beforehand so that I am able to plan accordingly.
What should I bring to the session?
I have a large selection of gowns and dresses, fabrics, tulle skirt and headpieces which you are more than welcome to take your pick of. I also have some matching dresses for little girls who may be joining the session,
I do advise that your bring a couple of sets of underwear, ideally a black and a white set, perhaps a strapless bra too.
If there is anything that you would like to bring yourself, clothing, hats, jewellery or accessories to make your session more unique, then please bring it all along!
What happens next?
Around 2-3 weeks after your photoshoot you will be invited back to the studio to view your finished gallery of around 15 beautiful, fully edited photographs, this is when you can pick your photographs and your package.
The photoshoot itself is completely free, I do not charge to take photographs of you. You are under no obligation to to purchase a single photograph if you wish not to, in this case the photoshoot will have cost you nothing. If you wish to order wall art instead of the package below, due to the time involved, there is a minimum order fee of £299.
