How To Book Your Maternity Photography In Paddington

In order to guarantee a session in the later stages of your pregnancy we strongly suggest booking a maternity photoshoot about midway through your pregnancy.  As soon as you contact us we will send through a copy of our maternity brochures - we offer two relevant experiences: the standard maternity shoot or a milk bath photography session.  You can choose from either session type or do a combination of them both.


We are happy to do the photographs of just the mother-to-be or to include the partner and/or children.  Toddlers always make for a fun shoot and it is nice to be able to capture the anticipation of a new brother or sister.

What’s Next?

Once you are ready to book a session we will agree on a suitable date and you will be sent a booking form.  We are fairly flexible (as far as our timetable allows) with bookings.  We absolutely want to photograph you at your best and want you to arrive non-stressed and happy.  So if you have a reason to change the time or the date we would hope to be able to accommodate you.


Creating the perfect session


The booking form allows us to elicit some information from you regarding what you want from the session.  Knowing your preference for the various types of shots allows us to set the lighting and background accordingly.  If you have anything special you would like to include such as a toy or ultrasounds etc we can include them as well.


The days before the session 

A few days prior to your session date we will send some preparation information so you have a checklist of what to bring with. We can also provide advice and sample images on clothing options if required, paying attention to the look will create the best images.


I have nothing to wear!

Says every later stage maternity client!  No problem - we have a range of beautiful maternity gowns that you can use during your session.  

Some clients bring their own outfits, some rely totally on our wardrobe and some use a bit of both.  It is up to you and whatever you feel comfortable wearing. If you want to do naked or partially naked shots we will guide you with those as well.


Getting to the studio


The trip from Paddington to our studio will take you about 15 minutes by car.  We have easy on site parking that we encourage you to use.

During Your Maternity Session Near Paddington

During your Chapter One Photography maternity photography session we try and keep things very relaxed.  We will stop whenever you need a rest or a break.  We will pose you so that you look the most glamorous in your photographs.  If you are not particularly at ease in front of the camera we will make you relax and we show you how to look your best.  You may have to suffer a few bad jokes to get you smiling!


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.
