Maternity portraits – lifestyle, in a favourite park

About this maternity portrait session:

Richmond park is a very special place for this lovely couple, so it was an obvious choice of location for their maternity portraits. I love it when a couple have a strong connection to a place – it really shows in the photographs.

We headed to a small pond and took some photographs by the water – including a few with a print from their pregnancy scan. There was something special about seeing a photo of the baby in the womb, while the parents were standing by a body of water – maybe I was feeling especially broody but it felt like the parents were sharing the baby’s experience somehow, of being surrounded by water.

Kelly’s mother was also with us – she’d come over to say to support the couple during this special time in their lives, so of course she was incorporated into the maternity photographs too. It’s lovely to see such a strong mother-daughter bond, and a real privilege to photograph it.

Using a long lens so we didn’t disturb the animals, I also photographed the couple near Richmond Park’s most famous residents – the beautiful deer that live in the park.

“Thank you again for the absolutely stunning photos!  I am so happy with them”. Kelly
