I have been photographing women all my life, but for the past 6 years I have become increasingly besotted with photographing the pregnant form. The following shoot is one of my favourite winter maternity sessions. Olivia is such a beautiful woman, and her flat in London is the perfect blend of contemporary and cosiness.
Olivia is a wedding photographer and works with her husband Dan. You should check how beautifully they document a wedding day in their modern, cinematic way here. A few months ago, I went to London to photograph two weddings with them. Olivia was pregnant and needed back up, and it was an amazing experience to be photographing memories for their lovely couples with them.
As I was staying with them, it was a great opportunity to photograph Olivia, waiting for baby Georgia in the intimacy of their modern home in London. The weather was really cold outside, and I liked the contrast between the blustery wintery day and the warm tones they chose to decorate their house. This type of intimate maternity session really moves me. You can feel the connection and the love that the mums already have for their baby. The simplicity of this nostalgic moment that only last a few months means so much, especially once the baby arrives. I’m always so proud to be capturing these beautiful sessions.
If you liked this winter maternity session in London, you will love this snowy Day in the Life Session that I photographed in Manchester.
