Maternity Photographer, Kent

As a maternity photographer in Kent, I just love capturing such a special time. It may not always feel like it but you will miss that bump when it's gone.

And when the memories of your swollen ankles and sore back fade, you will be so glad you took half an hour out for a maternity photoshoot.


Where will your maternity photoshoot in Kent take place?

Fun and relaxed, my Kent maternity photoshoots take place outdoors. We really are spoilt for choice with the glorious countryside in this county.

If you have a location in mind, great. If not, I will help you find the perfect spot.

I typically look for somewhere with parking, that's not too much a walk for you and that's quiet - not many people want an audience when they're having a pregnancy photoshoot!

When is the best time for a pregnancy photoshoot?

As a seasoned maternity photographer, I would suggest that somewhere between 30 -34 weeks is ideal for your photoshoot.

Your bump will be there for all to see but you won't be too uncomfortable at this stage.

Can my family join us?

Yes! Partners and other children are more than welcome to come along to your maternity photoshoot.

We'll get some lovely shots of you all together but the main focus will be your and your beautiful bump.

Take a peek at this gorgeous Kent maternity photoshoot, complete with daddy, big brother and a swan!

I loved photographing this lovely family from Kent . Mum, dad and a cheeky little 14-month-old boy who was all set to become a big brother a few months later.

They are lucky enough to live near to some gorgeous meadows which was the perfect backdrop for this maternity photography session.

The Great British Summer

We booked this Kent maternity photoshoot for the day that an intense heatwave broke in typical thundery fashion.

It was actually raining when the family woke up but after studying all 3 of my weather apps we decided to risk it and I'm so glad we did.

By the time I arrived we had glorious early morning hazy sunshine.

A Gorgeous Location for a Maternity Photoshoot

When we arrived at Foots Cray Meadows I did a little happy dance inside. An arched bridge. A winding river. Huge Weeping Willows. Majestic swans. Just gorgeous.

I'm now secretly hoping that every photography enquiry I get is from Sidcup just so I can go back there...

The idea behind the pregnancy photoshoot was to capture some images before mum got too big and uncomfortable.

"I'm just finding I'm not in a very photogenic stage at the moment and it takes a lot to find a pic I'm happy with!! Hence calling in a professional!!!"

I think the photos back me up when I say she had absolutely nothing to worry about...

You Know It's Been a Good Session When...

... you get photobombed by a swan!

When There Was Three

What a lovely little boy. He's going to be a wonderful big brother. But they'll always have these photos of when it was just the three of them.

What to Wear for a Summer Maternity Photoshoot

When you book a maternity photoshoot you'll receive a session guide to help you get ready. It's full of practical advice and tips on what to wear.

This family look co-ordinated, comfortable in their clothes and they've chosen outfits that won't date their photos.
