Professional Edinburgh pregnancy photography studio.

Be ready to LOVE something more than you ever thought you could

A maternity photo shoot is a chance to experience elegant pregnancy photography, which not only documents your pregnancy but also tells the story of your journey to becoming a mother.

When my maternity clients look back on their bump pictures they tell me that they are instantly transported back and experience the magic of those moments all over again (but without a backache and the swollen ankles!)

But more than that, your children will know the story of who you and your partner were (yes, I get dads involved too) as prospective parents — nervous, excited, and love without reservation. And that is beyond value.

"Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. I wanted to do pregnancy photography to celebrate the amazing changes that are happening in my body and I chose to do a nude session. He has a great personality and instantly makes you feel comfortable. He looked at and listened to my ideas. I was worried about being naked with a stranger, but Armands made me feel totally at ease. I often forgot I was naked and had fun at the photo session. The session went amazingly well. Of course, the photographs were excellent and beyond my dreams or expectations. I cannot recommend A–Fotografy highly enough. Do not hesitate to book your session with him today."

"Armands put me and my partner at ease very quickly (especially my partner who is a little camera shy). Armands is very easy to talk to and made the experience lots of fun by getting my partner to help with my shots. Our maternity photos are fantastic and such a lovely way to remember my pregnancy."

Your Pregnancy Photo Shoot: What to expect

  • I recommend making your booking as soon as possible after your 20-week scan when you’ll be given an expected due date. Booking early secures your slot in my diary, and we can change the date nearer the time if your baby arrives earlier or later than expected.
  • When to book your maternity session for can be personal preference, but the most expectant mums-to-be book to come into the studio for their photoshoot in between 7-8 months.
  • Where to take your portraits is also all up to you. Mainly maternity photos are taken at my Edinburgh photo studio, but it can be done at your home if you’d prefer. Or, do you have a favourite park? An affinity for the beach? I am comfortable working both indoors and outdoors so feel free to choose a place that is most comfortable for you.
  • During your session, you’ll have access to all my elegant maternity gowns. I also have a collection of headpieces and beautiful fabrics that we can also incorporate into the images.
  • Before the date of your maternity photo session, I will give you a little list of things to bring with you and I’ll explain why you’ll need them. Ultimately, it depends what type of session are you planning in terms of what you will need to bring.
  • I want you to feel 100% relaxed and comfortable having your photos were taken with me, so if you’d like to, please come and meet me in person at the studio ahead of your session. I am also happy to answer any questions you have either before or on the day of your maternity session.
  • We can do your bump portraits with you fully clothed or a combination of covered and uncovered bump photos – it’s completely up to you.
  • These sessions are wonderful family events as well, so it only makes sense that dad and siblings will help tell your story in pictures.

" I was apprehensive about my size. I was not really keen on posing in the size I was, so I gave up on the idea of maternity pics and concentrated on looking for a photographer for my newborn baby boy. I came across Armands work and fell in love with his maternity pictures. I found myself astonished with the artwork he created for us. He managed to capture the happiness that I had growing inside me."

But I don’t like how I look…

Many mums-to-be tell me they don’t feel that they look good during their pregnancy. They feel huge, are tired and the last thing they want to do is be photographed.

But it can be easy to lose sight of how truly beautiful you look. That is one of the reasons why I love doing maternity photography so much! I love playing with light and shape during my maternity sessions and helping women to feel more body-confident. My goal is to create photos that will make you look and feel beautiful, elegant, and radiant.

And if you’d like some extra pampering ahead of your photo shoot, I can organise a hair and/or make-up artist to work their magic. Why not treat this as that prenatal pampering session you promised yourself? You know you deserve it.
