Portishead Photography | Bump and Baby

This is a combination of the bump photography but with a second shoot when baby has arrived. 


The best time to have a "bump" photoshoot is considered to be between 28 and 34 weeks of the pregnancy. The reason for this is that your bump tends to photograph really well and you have enough energy to enjoy the session. We do get some people who leave it later and we still get some great photographs so there is no hard and fast rule - it does depend upon the individual.

There is no such thing as a typical session as different people have different priorities .

Chris&Rob118smallerChris&Rob118smaller Some want it to be a family celebration in preparation of the new arrival and  involve the other members of the family, their partners, children and even family pets . We can get family photographs , arty images and even fun, silly photographs - the choice is yours.

Others like something a little more arty crossing somewhere between boudoir, maternity and fine art nude photography. Again we would gladly love to help fulfil your wishes.

To help you articulate your taste we have examples of differing photographs to show you so that you can choose your favourites and show us the style or type of image that you like before the shoot.

The sessions typically last for an hour and you will be invited back approximately 1 week later to look at the photographs and choose your favourites.

Many people order the " bump and baby" package which combines this shoot with a new born shoot - when baby is introduced to the world and the theme follows the bump photographs.

It may involve family or it may be Mum and Dad with baby. It may be baby on his or her own- we offer a specialst new born art type photo shoot which is explained in more detail here. The choice is all yours.

We have the facilities and ability to transfer your wishes into beautiful photographs.
