Pregnancy Photography South Wales - Pregnancy Photoshoot - Hannah & Josh

As I write this blog about Hannah and Josh’s pregnancy photoshoot I’m still flying high from getting to meet this lovely couples baby! Yes baby is here, being showered with love and I’ve just had the pleasure of documenting this family at their newborn session now they are officially a three. But before I get carried away, let’s talk about their brilliant maternity session a couple of months back!


I had decided I already liked Hannah long before we actually got to meet. Why, you may wonder? Well Hannah reached out to me to book her session MONTHS before her due date. Let me tell you, that NEVER happens! Usually my inbox gets messages from women about to pop asking when is the best time to book my pregnancy photoshoot? P.S I would say around 32-34 weeks….

But Hannah was on the ball! She told me that both her sister and sister in law went into labour earlier than planned and so she wanted to be sure she didn’t miss out on documenting her pregnancy properly. Hannah, you are a star!


Our session began by heading out for a walk in one of the couples favourite spots with their dog Frank. Firstly, I’m obsessed when animals have proper people names, even better if they’re old man names, I dream of owning a pooch called Albert or Stanley. ….and that’s not relevant at all so let’s get back to the pregnancy photoshoot!


I’ve said it a 1000 times but I will always do my best to get pets involved in portraits. I know that to pet owners their animals are just as important a family member as anyone else! So I’m thrilled to share these with you were we managed to get Frank involved. He sat so well for a couple of shots. Then off he went to run around like a mad thing whilst his owners chatted and cuddled under the shade of a very autumnal looking tree.

Both Hannah and Josh aren’t originally from the area in fact Hannah is originally from Canada. Which means that thanks to you know what (covid) they haven’t been able to share this amazing time with their family as they really would’ve liked to. So of course that added a special layer to this pregnancy photoshoot. We were able to create lots of images of the couple and Hannahs beautiful bump to share with their family around the globe.


The session was a breeeeeze, Hannah and Josh were just so natural and loved up. One of my favourite shots was when I asked Hannah to brush her off her shoulder which prompted Josh to give his wife a sweet kiss on the neck. Such a sweet moment! In fact I started to wonder if these two were psychics..there were so many times I was about to give them some kind of prompt or direction and they did it before I had chance to ask! My kind of people!!


We turned to leave the field just as the heavens opened. Good timing. We then took our pregnancy photoshoot inside to the warmth of the couples home.


Hannah had asked to take some shots with the bump bare. I LOVE when Mums want to do that because there is so much, beauty and magic in the exposed curve of a growing pregnant belly. I could honestly gush all day but instead I’ll share some of these, soft, beautiful images of Hannah.


As always I am thrilled that Hannah and Josh invited me into their world and trusted me to create this pregnancy photoshoot for them. Now I just cannot wait to dive into their newborn session and share that with you too!!!



Which reminds me! I currently have an amazing offer available for my bump to baby package for those booking before 05.03.2020. So if you would love to have incredible images of life before and after you welcome baby into the world please drop me a message and we can talk all about it!
