Styling our Maternity & Mum & Me sessions
During our Maternity sessions I use a lot of silk & Satin materials for draping & styling our clients to give the feeling of elegant, fashionable garments. By using materials in this way I can use these garments on all body sizes and in lots of different ways - instead of just buying one dress that is one size and one style. Being more creative with material makes ladies feel more comfortable when they do step into my studio.
My inspiration for styling my own sessions in this way came from Lola Melani, one of the best maternity photographers in the world. I’ve been privileged to have attended one of her workshops back in 2017. Ever since then I have noticed a huge improvement in my maternity photography and I have taken so much inspiration from her.
The latest dresses I’m making during lockdown is for our mum & me sessions as there have been a lot of new mums who have sadly had to miss out on their newborn sessions. So instead I’m offering all the new mums a timeless, memorable photography session with their older babies. My aim is to make all Mums feel glamourous in our beautiful gowns and studio setting. I will also be introducing a new flower wall & more choice of textured backdrops.
The latest dresses I'm creating are made using floral materials. Organza Lace & vintage rose satin. I can’t wait to start using them ready for the spring time.
I will be documenting the making of these dresses and new backdrops, so please check out my Instagram stories for posts and my facebook page if you wish to follow our progress.
All girls love a bit of pampering and glamour, and that’s exactly what I want to offer to all my clients. Just can’t wait to get back into the studio and start being creative again.
