It feels so long ago now that I had my last day at work before starting my maternity leave. I was given some lovely flowers and baby grows from my work colleagues. I also received a Groupon voucher for a bump to baby 'Watch-Me-Grow' package of photoshoots. The package includes four baby photoshoots; maternity/bump, newborn, crawling/sitting and walking. Also included in the package are three 8" x 6" prints from each photoshoot and a Facebook picture.
So, at 34 weeks pregnant we travelled to Reflections Photography in Sheffield to have our maternity photoshoot. I am not entirely comfortable with having my picture taken at the best of times, even more so when heavily pregnant. I felt very nervous on the run up to the photoshoot and imagined the photographer chasing me around the room as I tried to hide and dodge out of every photo. Our photographer was lovely and quickly put me at ease.
After our maternity photoshoot we returned to the studio once Ava Mae was born to have our newborn session. We where then abled to book a viewing session to see our photos and choose the prints included in the package. Ian and I also decided to spend £125 on a memory stick containing ten high resolution images of our choice from across both of our photoshoots.
I am very pleased with how the photos have turned out and I can't wait to have our final two photoshoots once Ava Mae is sitting and crawling. Keep an eye out for Ava Mae's newborn photoshoot coming soon!
