During Your Maternity Photography Session Near Manly 

During your Chapter One Photography maternity photography session we try and keep things very relaxed and easy.  From the pre filled in form we will know what you are looking for in your photographs and we will have set the lighting and backgrounds up to suit your needs.


We aim to do a couple of wardrobe changes so that your final gallery is a mix of looks from light and airy to dramatic and powerful.  We will also incorporate any items that are important to you as well such as ultrasounds, small booties, baby’s name, items from your homeland including saris and traditional blankets etc


There is time for a sit down if you are feeling exhausted, you will not be hurried based on our timetable. Hopefully it is a session you will remember with much happiness in the years to come.

When Are The Images Available?

One to two weeks after your session your photographs will be delivered via an online photo gallery.  If you choose to order photographs, canvases, books or other products we have a large range to choose from and they usually take 2 weeks to arrive. Generally if you have done a maternity shoot at 36 weeks the ordered products are available to collect when you bring your newborn in for their session.
