Southampton Maternity Photographer – Katie

family maternity

My last post of 2011. I’m in my hometown, Bellingham, right now doing some last minute organization for the wedding. There’s no stress, I feel like that happened a couple weeks ago. We are just enjoying being on holiday, just the two of us, and getting ready for a week of fun with good friends and our families. There’s lots to do, but we’re getting it done and everything is coming together.

With the new year brings lots of new things: New resolutions, new goals, new places, new marriage, new experiences and for this soon to be mama…..

A new baby.

This shoot ranks up there with being one of my favorites. I love how the images turned out. Katie let me have full control over the look and location, which is so awesome. I don’t shoot a lot of maternity, but I really wanted to stay away from the cliché photos that you see so much of these days and do something more organic, natural and timeless.

Favorite, Favorite, Favorite

Each of the 4 kids has something a little different to bring to the table in terms of personality and q ...

The importance of having maternity photos. Pregnancy is such a surreal time in life. There's so many changes happening in the build up and getting ready for this new little being to enter your world. You're unsure of exactly what lies ahead, and everyone tells you it's the hardest and most amazing thing ever, which can be so confusing and contradicting. You give up things that you like (sushi, cheese, alcohol) not realising that these are small sacrifices compared to what's to come. Nobody can tell you or prepare you for it. When this little person arrives, life changes forever, and you embrace it.Taking maternity photos is such a good wa ...

New Forest Family Photography :: Louise + Nathan + Jocelyn
 This sweet family happens to our neighbours and friends. We are often given fresh eggs from their chickens. Little Jocelyn was born about 3 weeks before Cavanaugh, and Louise and I have spent many days commiserating celebrating as we navigate new motherhood together. It's so much easier with friends (and lots of coffee and cake). Being right in the forest is a photographer's dream, there is an endless choice of whimsical places. These images were taken in the field behind Louise and Nathan's house, and their fairytale back garden.
