Intimate Studio Maternity photography FAQ’s
What if I’m not confident? That’s perfectly normal. I will have you feeling relaxed very quickly. And guide you during your entire session to create portraits you’ll treasure forever. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable
I don’t like my ……. Yes we all have insecurities about certain body parts .. wobbly bits .. cellulite .. stretch marks .. veins .. the list goes on. It’s okay we are all critical of ourselves at times. No matter your body type I can create flattering images. Careful positioning, correct choice of lingerie, delicate lighting are all part of choosing to use a professional photographer who specialises in intimate portraiture.
Who will see my photos? I love to share beautiful imagery, however your privacy is of utmost importance to me. Your images will be treated with discretion and according to your individual requests. If you’d like your images kept private please let me know. The majority of our boudoir sessions remain private. All images are photographed and edited by me personally.
How long in advance do I need to book? I recommended you allow around 4 weeks for availability if possible. Even longer if you require a weekend.
When is the best time to have maternity photos? This will vary with every woman and each pregnancy. I recommend any time between 28 to 36 weeks. Or as soon as you have a beautiful round belly. Try to avoid those last few weeks in case your baby makes an early entrance.
Professional makeup and hair styling for maternity photos
Do you need it and why is it important for studio photography?
I recommend using a professional makeup and hair stylist every time. It will make you feel beautiful and give you confidence. Even if you love a natural look a trained artist will create a flawless glow you’ll enjoy. For those who secretly love a smokey eye and struggle to master the look you won’t regret the decision. Photography makeup is a specialised skill and I only use the very best. The little extra length on your lashes and soft romantic hair will add a special touch.
Hair and makeup for this shoot is by the very talented Kymarie Makeup for more information contact Kym on 0422 966 810 or click here
Thanks for stopping by and reading my intimate maternity photography blog. Enjoy every moment of your photo shoot because these memories will be cherished forever. For availability send an email to tracy@beecherished or phone for a chat on 0412 996 891

Magnolia flowers for a beautiful pregnant Mummy
Did you know Magnolias symbolise dignity and nobility. In ancient China, magnolias were thought to be the perfect symbols of womanly beauty and gentleness. White represents the moon, and lunar goddess’s. A magnolia often symbolizes Yin, or the feminine side of life. Interested in more information about the beautiful magnolia visit here
Why styled maternity photography?
I’m not entirely sure why I constantly think of different ways to create beautiful unique pregnancy photos. I only know it’s something deep within me. It’s a privilege to be trusted with. I see so much beauty in maternity photos. I want every woman to have at least one portrait to love she can’t stop looking at. It makes me so happy when I hear such emotive and genuine feed back.
Wearable flower art for maternity photography
If you’ve ever wondered how my funny little brain works. I will share a snippet into a day a couple of weeks ago. I’m a tiny bit different due to the way I see pretty things in unusual places. I love weeds and messy long grass. If you know me you may drive past pretty grass and say to yourself. I must tell Tracy! Textures, colours and soft light surround us everyday we just need to learn to see them.
Pampas grass, magnolias and hessian | Maternity styling
It all started with pampas grass. I love the colour tones of pampas grass! I just happened to walk past a pretty bunch in Kmart. Fast forward an hour, I’m at home sitting on the floor with it. As usual I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. Only I knew it would photograph beautifully with my new backdrop. The colours were stunning together. Add one of my favourite flowers, the magnolia and I attached it all to some hessian and florist wire. I’m only just discovering florist wire now! It’s amazing!
I totally love creating maternity wearable art

Timeless elegant maternity photography Brisbane Studio
Hi I’m Tracy and I’m a boudoir maternity photographer on Brisbane’s Northside. “I wish I’d had maternity photos” Are words I hear too frequently. Boudoir maternity photography is fun. I promise, any nerves will fade quickly. People say I make them feel comfortable for a reason. I’m a female and I understand insecurities. I’ll take great care to give you the best photos of your pregnancy. The motherhood journey is one you’ll remember forever. I am a professional, I listen carefully to your concerns and together we plan your dream photos.
When is the best time to have boudoir maternity portraits
This is entirely up to you. I recommend anytime before 36 weeks. Each and every pregnancy is different. Anytime from 30 to 36 weeks or when your belly is beautiful and round. The reason I suggest earlier rather than later is your little bundle may arrive early. Towards the end especially in summer some women may have excess fluid and I want you to feel very comfortable.
5 tips for boudoir maternity photography
Pamper yourself with professional makeup and hair styling you’ll feel fabulous
Maternity photos often show case your hands so check for chipped nail polish
You don’t need a spray tan! If you like a bit of colour make sure your spray tan is a good one. Elbows, wrists, knees and ankles don’t look great with a bad spray tan.
Wear loose and comfy fitting clothes to the studio to prevent any marks on your skin
Lastly and most importantly relax take time to choose the right photographer. You need to feel comfortable and trust your photographer to gently guide you to create beautiful feminine flattering portraits.

Do you love feminine and pretty maternity boudoir photography Brisbane?
I’m so excited to share a few photos from this gorgeous maternity session recently. I truly believe I have the best job! I’ve always loved photography and enjoy crafting when I have time. I decided to put the two together to create something unique. Now add the very beautiful Nikita who was so wonderful to put her faith in my creation. Thank you Nikita for trusting me with your pregnancy memories. There is no better compliment than to have a pregnant mummy say “Do what ever you like I trust you and love your work”
Planning flower maternity photos to create feminine and pretty emotive portraits
I’ll confess straight away I had no idea how I was going to make this outfit! I knew exactly what I wanted to do but struggled with the idea of the bra top. My family will tell you I am the worst person to use google. It takes me twice as long as anyone to find what I’m looking for. Perhaps I’m too impatient or my mind works in a different way. What ever the reason I’m fortunate to have creative friends to help guide me. After spending time on pinterest and taking notes it was off to the shops. I then purchased flowers, grape vines and florist wire and I was all set.
Pretty flower maternity bra to suit any size
A day later and feeling very excited and happy with myself I have made this very feminine flower maternity bra. Yes I have a secret weapon! I have it on good authority this was comfortable and it’s adjustable to fit any size. I love the idea of a backless top. The grape vine is designed to strategically cover whilst draping around your body and leg. I wanted a ethereal and magical dreamy look. Pregnancy is absolutely momentous and I think every Mummy is a goddess. I hope you like my version of a pretty and feminine maternity portrait.
Styled Maternity photography on Brisbane’s Northside
If you’re looking for something very special and memorable I would love to hear from you. It makes my heart sing to present a gorgeous gallery of pregnancy photos. I felt like a child in a candy store planning this shoot. Actually I am still that child when I enter a candy store but that’s another story. I have peter pan syndrome .. what’s peter pan syndrome you might ask? I never want to grow up. Creating outfits is releasing my inner child. My mind is constantly thinking of new ideas and if you’re interested I have a few new ideas lined up ready to go.
Here are the best maternity photos from this session
Talk about a hard choice. It was so hard to pick my favourites I could have easily shared 20. The photos in this blog are a mix of Nikita’s favourites and my favourites. Once again thank you to you and your adorable family Nikita for allowing me to style your maternity photos. A big thank you to Kymberly from Kymariemakeup mobile hair and makeup for your talent. Kymberly specialises in vegan friendly makeup. Nikita’s hair and makeup styling was a touch fantasy to suit our magical theme.
Family maternity photos
On this occasion Nikita enjoyed a break in between her styled maternity photos and her family portraits. It’s so important to include partners and family. It’s often a great idea with such small children to ask someone to bring them along for a few photos towards the end of your session. The very best behaved children may become bored during an hour and a half of hair and makeup and then add on photography time. Maternity photos with young children are fast and fun! I want your children to have fun in the studio especially when they are returning for newborn family photos.
Mother and daughter pregnancy family photos
The perfect family maternity photos are simple and elegant. Timeless memories don’t need too much fuss. Soft back lighting and pretty feminine lace and real emotions. These photos made me smile during the sessions and ooo and ahh editing them. I wish I had such beautiful photos when I was pregnant. This by the way is one of the most comment statements Mum’s make in the studio during their newborn photos.
Beautifully printed maternity photos
In the studio I have the most stunning maternity photo framed on display. It is my most requested maternity portrait and is definitely a talking point. One of the reasons I choose that particular photo to display in the studio fills me with pride. It is my most requested photo however the Mum in the photo was having her 4th baby and her very 1st maternity photos. I feel extraordinarily privileged to be a photographer when I hear stories like that. It’s a honor I take very seriously. To be your chosen photographer to create your family memories is what makes me smile.
I love feminine and pretty maternity photography and soft delicate lighting
Soft muted pastel colours and delicate back lighting evokes emotion in photos. Simplicity produces timeless memories. I aim to create a diverse range of photos you’ll adore looking at forever. Your family photos should display your connection and show love. Yes the carefully posed photos are amazing but I do add in a touch of you and your natural personalities. My favourite photos are often not the ones looking directly into the camera smiling. They are for your parents, I hope your favourites are the emotive photos. The photos people comment on and see true love.
