Why you should book me as your Maternity & New Born Photographer

I decided to write this post about why I believe you should book me as your Maternity & New Born Photographer.

I put a lot of love, care and commitment into my work. I’m passionate about my work. A photo does not just happen by chance. It takes a special set of skills to produce a stunning photo…
*I always have a vision of how I want the photo to look.
*I have the skills to make you feel relaxed and I’m sensitive to what works for certain people.
*I can use a location to it’s best potential.
*As a female photographer, I will be able to capture the more intimate baby bump photos for you.

Look at the photo below as an example. I took this photo at the client’s apartment and used natural light. I’m very good at finding natural and available light and use it to create my vision. When I saw the chair I immediately knew what I wanted to do and how I would set the scene.

From there is was easy to see what other poses we can take at the same spot in the room.


I listen to you as an individual and to you and your partner as a couple. I know how to read people and I will never make you feel uneasy or make you do a pose you don’t want to. I know how to capture to love you feel for each other (which is unique to you) into a photograph.


Time and commitment goes into editing to bring the final product together with my unique style.

I’m blessed with LOTS of patience when it comes to newborn photographs. It can take up to 6 hours to get the set of photos you want and I’m willing to patiently wait to capture them for you :) I also bring my setup to your house, where you will feel comfortable. I will also respect you and your baby and will make you feel at ease.

I’m not a clone, I’m one of a kind. I have my own sense of photography style and editing. I know how to scout a location and find the perfect spot for the perfect photo.

And finally, I’m not just taking your photographs, I’m giving you an experience. I like to get to know you as a person and not just someone I photograph.

Lots of Love,
