Baby Bump Shoot in The Peaks

I just totally love a maternity session! I adore the excitement and anticipation of a couple about to have a baby. In fact I just love all the baby talk too! No I'm not broody (hehe), but I do remember how wonderfully exciting and exhausting it was to be pregnant! It is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and although 9 months feels like a long time, before you know it your baby has arrived and life before baby and the wonders of pregnancy a distant memory. This is why capturing this special moment before the onset of beautiful tiny feet, sleepless nights and nappies is so very precious. 

I was so excited when Lois and Joe asked me to capture this special time for them and we chatted about what they wanted from their shoot and where they wanted it to be. They often take their gorgeous dog Ernie for long walks in the stunning Peak District and being out in nature is their thing. Macclesfield Forest is one of their favourite places so it seemed like the perfect location to do their maternity shoot. It was so nice to be in amongst the trees, the long summer grasses and soft evening light, although we kept it to a short walk as it is tiring carrying a tiny human around! 

If you're thinking of having a maternity photo shoot, give me a call, they are so much fun!
