Brisbane Maternity Photographer
Are you looking for a Brisbane maternity photographer you can feel comfortable with? It’s not easy standing naked or partially clothed in front of a stranger! If you’re like most Mummies you might not feel you look your best when you’re pregnant in your 3rd trimester. Maybe you might be carrying a touch of fluid? Possibly have a few stretch marks? Maybe you just can’t see your toes to shave your legs very well. The good news is, you are perfectly normal. I would love to show you how beautiful your pregnant body is and make you feel amazing!
Maternity Photography Packages Brisbane Northside
Still wondering if you should book a pregnancy shoot? I am a Brisbane maternity photographer located on the northside. Bee Cherished Photography offer fine art styled maternity photography sessions. If you’d like to be pampered and feel beautiful from within please contact me. I’m Tracy and I would love to meet you. I truly love everything about pregnancy and gorgeous belly bumps. I believe every woman should have at least one photo they love of themselves pregnant.
Why choose Bee Cherished Photography for Maternity photos?
If you feel awkward having photos or if you have little hang ups about your body, I am the photographer for you. I will gently guide you during your session to make you look gorgeous. A slight stretch, a gentle turn and a raised leg with a few photography skills results in flattering photos. I aim to pose you from your toes all the way through to the tip of your head. Each session is approached with careful planning. I will listen to your ideas and be considerate to your wishes and any self doubt. Pregnancy photos should look very relaxed, comfortable and emotive. I want you to leave feeling empowered and excited to see the results. As your family grows and your children have children I want you to share your pregnancy photos with joy and re live those precious memories.
Brisbane Maternity Photography Studio
Did you know Studio lighting is very flattering? Studio lighting when carefully used produces beautiful soft lighting for flattering skin tones. It can disguise and minimise red blotchy skin, stretch marks and any unsightly bumps. During your maternity photography session I use a lot of different techniques. I’ve discovered many ways of photographing women that just add a touch of elegance. I love studio lights they offer so much variety and creativity. Just by using studio lights alone I can create beautiful soft flattering lighting. Add in the right lens choice and the camera angle and together we can create beautiful memories.
How to choose the best Brisbane Maternity Photographer for you?
Two photographers side by side will create completely different photos. That’s why it’s so important to love your chosen photographers work. Every photographer has a style. The best Brisbane maternity photographer for you is the one who produces work you love to look at. The best pregnant photos will make you stop and look twice. Emotive photos make you sigh. Pregnancy should look real and show your personality. Relaxed hands and faces are the final touches and a good photographer will have noticed if you’re showing tension or if you are enjoying the moment.
Frequently asked questions | Brisbane Maternity Photographer
What should I wear for maternity photos?
Bee Cherished photography have outfits available for you to use. There is something to suit all sizes and shapes. I have a lot of different fabrics for draping and plenty of accessories. I do love to pop on my creative hat and love to hear new ideas and personalise your look. You don’t need to bring any outfits along but you are very welcome to. Together we will make a plan before your shoot with options you feel excited and comfortable to be photographed in. Phone for a chat and I can help you decide what’s best for you and your body shape.
Where is the maternity studio?
I am a Brisbane maternity photographer located on the northside. The studio is in Caboolture only five minutes from the highway and very easy to find. It is a private comfortable environment you will feel very relaxed with a female photographer
What do I need to prepare for my maternity shoot?
Most people don’t have a wardrobe with many options during pregnancy. During your planning for your maternity photos I will prepare you. All you really need is a strapless bra that gives you a good shape. If you don’t have one that currently fits around your back those bra extenders work wonderfully. Skin coloured underwear and maybe a pretty set of lingerie. I recommend your partner wear some sort of long pants, either jeans, casual or if you’re after more formal photos then dress pants.
When should I book my maternity photos?
Anytime after 20 weeks is a good time to book. I usually book months in advance so make sure you don’t leave it too late to lock in your session. Especially if you require a weekend.
Is hair and makeup included for pregnancy portraits?
I highly recommend hair and makeup for a maternity photo shoot. It will make you feel fabulous and you will enjoy the time being pampered. Sam from Samantha Kate Makeup is Brisbane’s best kept secret. Not only is she a beautiful caring person she is highly skilled with photography makeup and a talented hair stylist. I have had the pleasure of using Sam for my photography sessions during the last 3 or 4 years and her work is flawless and very professional. Sam offers Bee Cherished customers a discounted rate of $150 and includes individual lashes. Even if you love a natural look Sam is amazing!
How much are Maternity photography sessions?
Bee Cherished Photography sessions start from $350 or $500 if you’d like hair and makeup included. A $100 deposit is required to secure current pricing and availability on our calendar. Weekend availability is limited and needs to be booked early.
When should I have my maternity photos taken? How many weeks pregnant?
Every pregnancy is different, I recommend any time between 30 to 35 weeks or as soon as your belly is beautiful and round. For some Mummies this could be 28 weeks and for others you may wish to wait until 37 weeks. Not sure let’s have a chat and I will help you decide. Please consider how easy it is for you to move around during the last trimester especially if you’re after photos on the floor.
