Dancing in the rain

Our bump shoot with Kelly and Marco

On the weekend we had a bump shoot with the lovely Kelly and Marco who have both recently moved here from South Africa and we could not have wished for a better shoot. Kelly had requested a lifestyle bump package which starts in the studio for our usual maternity photos and then we head uptown the nature reserve for a few outside. By 9am Saturday the rain had set in along with a yellow weather warning for wind and rain ūüí® So I messaged Kelly to check if we were still going ahead and she replied with a ‚Äúyes of course‚ÄĚ So I obviously expected the studio only part top happen. But their Uber arrived and as we settled in Kelly said that she still wants to shoot outside if we were up for it. Of course we are ūüėĀ

We started with a few of Kelly and Marco in their team Liverpool kits along with an adorable baby grow and then moved to more usual cloths haha. Kelly brought a lovely selection and we finished the inside part off with one of our white dresses which complimented hers perfectly. My absolute favourite was the ‚ÄúMade in Britain with South African bits‚ÄĚ haha brilliant.

Anyway as we approached the end we went to have a look at the weather and it was lashing it down, but Kelly insisted on going  so off we went.  What fun, what an amazing couple and what a lucky little girl Lily-Anne is going to be. Such awesome parents and such an adventure ahead.

Bumps and baby packages what do they cost?

We offer 2 great packages for bump shoots. Studio or location bump shoot is £200.00 and both studio and location would be £250.00 and with both you get a lovely selection of photos ready to print and share and of course treasure forever too. Plus £50 off of your newborn shoot.

Our studio shoot offers a selection of props that we can use as well as several different backdrops and lighting options. This is ideal if you want to bring along young siblings too. We have changing facilities as well as bathroom and refreshments and most importantly we have amazing Aircon for the warmer months.

We also have a nice selection of dresses in various sizes and colours to help really show off your bump.

Our location shoots are done at our local beauty spot which offers a wonderful selection of backdrops from golden trees, a beautiful Lilly pond and woodland walks with bluebells and daffodils all depending on the season. There are changing facilities nearby if needed but this option is best suited to one outfit.

Newborn add-on
