I know first hand that pregnancy certainly doesn't always feel beautiful and glamorous, but with my guidance I know I can make this happen for you. Your body is doing some miracle work right now, and you deserve to feel beautiful for a moment and honour this precious time. You never know if you'll get this moment again and it is certainly worthy of remembering through some timeless, professional portraits you can one day share as a heirloom for your baby.
“Cat was the first professional photographer I had ever worked with. Not only did she make us feel relaxed and comfortable, she also directed us to get our most flattering angles which I appreciated because I didn’t know where to start!”
what to expect
My maternity portrait sessions can take place in the comfort of your home, or at any other Hamilton location depending on what your vision may be.
Otherwise, I happily travel to Raglan at no extra cost to you as there's nothing like documenting a beautiful bump amongst the waves.
I totally understand it can be a little scary getting your photo taken and this isn't necessarily something you do everyday, so rest assured, I give you plenty of
direction during my sessions to help you feel comfortable. Directions that will help make sure how you’re standing or moving is flattering, but also comes across as natural.
You will also have full access to my client wardrobe
You can expect a maternity session to last anywhere from 45 minutes - 1.5 hours.
When is the best time to book in?
I limit the amount of bookings I take on each month to ensure flexibility in my schedule. This means I can often book out months in advance so you're best to book in as soon as possible to ensure you don't miss out. We'll book you in around 34-36 weeks pregnant. Slightly earlier the better incase we need to reschedule due to weather - but also far enough along that your bump is nice and round.
Can my partner or my children be included in this shoot?
Definitely! Bring your doggy friends if you'd like to as well (if location permits)
