Maternity photography sessions are special – for many reasons. These shoots capture and preserve some of the most precious times in a woman’s life. In my maternity photo shoot session, the happiness, joy, pain, anticipation, excitement, fear, excitement and emotions of these crazy months is what is captured and preserved.

Maternity photography is not just about dressing up the belly, and cutesy belly shots (which also we get ;)), but about the story of the couple, the baby and what’s to come. It’s about preserving that fleeting time which is filled with anticipation!

Our maternity photography sessions take place at a location convenient to the mother-to-be. If she’s comfortable walking around and being outdoors, we do the session outdoors. If she’s been told to be on bed rest, we do it while she’s laying down. If she’s told to not move too much, but can be on her feet, we do it at her home, and use various spots where she’s comfortable. It’s about stories. The stories are unique to each mother-to-be. There is no one size fits all solution – and we tailor the session according to the story the mom-to-be is living.

Best time for maternity photo shoots is between 32 and 37 weeks of pregnancy – this is far enough into the pregnancy for the belly to show up, but not too far down that the mother-to-be is uncomfortable.

Best clothes for maternity photo shoots is something that enhances and clearly outlines the belly, but is something that the mom-to-be is comfortable and confident in (empire line dresses or an empire line top with leggings). It’s important to be comfortable because only then you’d be yourself in your shoot.

How it Works & FAQs

1.  What do we need to do to prepare for the maternity photography session? 

Once you book your session with me, I will be guiding you on what to wear, and what to do before and during the session. The session will be centered around your comfort zone. We will take our time and patiently, carefully create artistic pieces for your enjoyment in perpetuity.

2. Where will the maternity photography session take place?

If you’re up and about, we would shoot outdoors at a beautiful location in Delhi/Gurgaon. If you prefer an at-home session, we could do that.

In case you’ve been experiencing difficulty with movement, we would do the shoot at your home where you would be most at ease, in an environment that is truly personal and intimate. We have worked with moms-to-be who’d been confined to 80% bed rest due to certain complications. We completely understand what you’re going through, and would be hand holding you through the process. The shoot would be an hour to enjoy (safely), and for us to capture your unique pregnancy story. See Neha’s maternity photographs. She’s a dear friend of mine (and now a happy, busy, superwoman mom to an adorable little boy) who was bed-ridden for the last 4 months of her pregnancy. Towards the 9th month, she was suffering from quite a bit of lower back pain, and was told to not be on bed rest and move around (in very short spurts of 10-15 mins at a time). We shot her session during one of those days. You can see what Neha had to say about her shoot here.

3. I have noticed there are no props in your photos. Why is that?

I do not have a cookie cutter approach to photographing people’s lives and memories. I believe that every person (and every pregnancy) is unique and I focus on creating timeless photos which capture the essence of your personality and your story.

4. What is the best time to do maternity photography sessions? 

32-37 weeks is the best time to do maternity photography sessions. The baby bump is prominent and all its glory, and you would also be comfortable to move around. Any less, and the bump may not be prominent enough, any more and you may have difficulty/discomfort moving. Here’s an article on the different phases and what to look forward to in each phase.

5. Do you also include photos with the husband & family (parents, parents in law) in the maternity photography session?

Yes, absolutely. Our photography philosophy is to capture the essence of you. So it’s important to include the important people in your life. Your husband would certainly be in the shoot, and if you like, please feel free to invite your sister, mom, dad, in laws, whoever it is you would like to see with you through this time.

6. How do we select my clothes for the session? What about make up? 

I will be emailing you a guide on how to pick your clothes & make up well before the session. Rest assured, they are simple but important tips which will increase the visual appeal of your photographs and get the best results.

7. What’s the pricing for a maternity photography session?

You can see the base pricing here. Please leave a message or email us to know the exact prices.

8. When will we receive our photos?

We are as excited as you to share and see the photos from your session so we share a few preview images within a couple of business days from the shoot with you.

Depending on the package you’ve selected, you will receive your full set of digital photos within 2 weeks from the shoot, pen drive within 3 weeks from the shoot, album within 3 weeks of commissioning.

10. Do you provide albums?

Yes. We believe in creating one of a kind, timeless and gorgeous albums which are to be enjoyed and cherished across generations as a treasure piece of heirloom. See here for more on Albums.

11. When is the best time to book a session? 

I take on shoots on only 4 days each month, to ensure top-most quality and the best possible experience for the families I engage with. Please understand, we have limited session slots each month (only 8 per month), and they get filled weeks in advance. We work on a first come first serve principle. To avoid disappointment, please schedule your session in advance and reserve your slot.

The best time to book a newborn photography session is during the 8th or early 9th month. Newborn photography is best done in the first 15 days after birth, so it’s best to keep us posted on the tentative due date so that we block our calendar accordingly (and we would schedule the exact date after the birth of the baby).
