Being pregnant is such a special time in your life, it truly is amazing how our bodies change and adapt to grow another life inside them. I love to create a maternity shoot that is completely you, I'll help you choose a location and I even have a selection of dresses that you can use for the duration of your shoot. The best time to do your maternity shoot is around the 30 week mark, as you will still be able to move around comfortably and will still have a nicely formed bump, however they are so much fun and can be done at any stage of pregnancy.
I have a number of dresses and props available for you to wear to your photo shoot below is a gallery of the dresses I have available.
Rainbow Maternity Sessions
Every year in New Zealand, over 700 babies die between 20 weeks gestation, and 12 months of age. In excess of 10,000 die as a result of an early loss prior to 20 weeks gestation. So many of us have experienced first hand how devastating that loss can be. Babies that are born after a loss are often referred to as "rainbow babies"
"Rainbow Babies" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.
