15 Jun Baby Bump/Maternity Shoot at Lyme Park
In December last year, my very close friends announced arrival of their first baby. Straight after the announcement, they said, we want you to capture the start of our babies life and do baby bump shoot. So, I said “YES”. I would love to capture the happiness of their parenthood.
In May 2018, she was about 35 weeks pregnant which was just the right time to organise the shoot. Parenthood is a precious experience that should be cherished and enjoyed with the fondest of memories.
To be parents, Dhwani and Anjan were very excited about the shoot and we decided to do it at the beautiful Lyme park in Manchester, a brand new location for me. We were lucky with the weather and managed to catch the late afternoon sun. Spring is a fantastic time of year for portrait photos, the sun was lower in the sky, it being less harsh, it also gives off a lovely warm glow to the portraits, exactly the way I would like.
Being pregnant is such a gift. The gift of pregnancy is to be celebrated, catered to, taken extra special care of and most of all captured in a maternity photo shoot. I don’t put a time limit on these shoots but usually around an hour is all we need. So here is what I came up with on the day with Dhvani & Anjan, I hope you like them, it was a pleasure to spend that hour with both of you. Wishing you all the best in life as you start your new journey.
