Kent maternity photographer
Hi, I’m Sarah, owner of Sarah Hart Photography based in Tonbridge. I’m a Kent maternity photographer and have been photographing bumps, newborns and families for 9 years serving clients from Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas.
Expecting a child is an exciting time and it’s lovely to be able to record these precious moments with a maternity photoshoot. You can select to book an indoor or outdoor maternity session based on your preference although seasons and weather may play a role in your decision!
Here’s a small selection of studio maternity images…
Or if you’re drawn to an outdoor maternity shoot…
If you opt for outdoor maternity photography, beautiful locations in the local area include:
If you are lucky enough to be able to have access to a beautiful and large garden, this makes a good alternative. Another lovely location that I’ve photographed in is Shipbourne common, opposite The Chaser pub, particularly in early Summer months. The time of day we set your session plays an important role. If at all possible, I recommend an early evening maternity session as the light is much lower in the sky. This makes for much softer light which is more flattering for your portraits.
The maternity session fee costs £260 and includes 10 high resolution digital images and a £50 credit towards a Newborn Photoshoot.
What To Wear
I recommend showing off your bump in fairly tight fitting clothing – it’s important to show off the bump in these images! Your partner’s shirt, matching lingerie or a figure hugging dress are all great options at a studio maternity session.
However, you may like the idea of celebrating your bump in some tasteful nude maternity shots. It’s natural to feel a little unsure about the idea of being naked at a photoshoot. But the idea with these types of images is to have the lighting focussed on your bump and to create beautiful, timeless images of this precious time. The shots can be replicated in lingerie if you don’t feel that you want to be photographed naked. And of course, the choice is completely yours as to how much of your body you’d like to reveal.
How to book
So, are you ready to book or want to know more? I’m always happy to chat with you on the phone about what type of maternity images you’re looking for. Drop me an email at sarah@sarahhartphotography with your due date and when you’d like to book a maternity session for.
Despite any initial anxiety about a bump photoshoot, my clients often comment on how comfortable they have felt at one of my sessions. My aim is for you to enjoy the experience and to be left with a beautiful set of timeless maternity portraits to capture this special time.
Pregnancy Reveal Announcement?
It might be that you’d also like me to capture the moment you share with your partner or older children that you are expecting a baby. I’m happy to work with you on an idea to photograph a pregnancy reveal announcement or gender reveal. You can see an example of a reveal to a set of siblings below. Drop me a line if you’d like to create something similar!
