There are two wonderful stories to be told on the journey to motherhood. Firstly as a woman, you will watch your body transform as it carries the life inside it, only to be completed with the overwhelming emotions of love and joy as you finally meet your new baby.
Siobhan can document both of these phenomenal milestones in your life with a special bump to baby photography package. With over 9 years of experience, Siobhan will help you preserve these special moments through stunning photos that will last a lifetime.
Most mothers want to wait until their bump is at its most prominent before starting their photography journey. Your maternity shoot is best scheduled between 35-38 weeks to accentuate the beauty of the pregnant form.
With the use of our range of stunning gowns and accessories, we will work with you to create a scene that is suited to your vision. That said, you can speak to us if there are other items that you would like us to include in your images.
You will revisit us again when your newborn baby is between 5-21 days old. A fully styled session will also deliver you a gallery of beautiful memories of your baby and new family.
Combined packages start at $1000
