Starting the new year with a Bump

Chloe & Ollie’s full-term maternity session

It’s been a dull and dreary start to 2019 so far; too much rain, not enough snow and a general ‘slump’ after the excitement of Christmas. So I was thrilled to have this gorgeous maternity session in my diary - because few things can brighten up a day like a beautiful baby bump. Chloe & Ollie have overcome some serious difficulties on their journey to parenthood, so this felt like an especially important set of images for them. And - baby is due this week. You don’t get much closer to a deadline than this!

It was wonderful to capture Chloe and Ollie so relaxed at their new home

I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful shoot; Chloe looked absolutely incredible and the excitement and love between the couple is easy to see. Maternity sessions always bring back lots of wonderful memories of my own waiting-for-baby days - and it’s a truly amazing feeling to be able to document this special time for my clients.

The connection between this couple made photographing them exceptionally easy

Maternity sessions are quickly becoming my favourite type of shoot…it’s an immense privilege to be allowed into a couple’s home at such a special time. I can’t wait to follow Ollie & Chloe’s journey as new parents and add to their family album when their baby arrives.
