Jo Page Photography provides specialist maternity photography for expectant mothers throughout Sussex and its surrounding areas. Being pregnant is wonderful – a really significant time in your life. During this time, you’ll be feeling nervous and excited in equal measure. It is my job to capture these emotions while you are at your most radiant and joyful.
In any of my maternity photography, I aim to create a special set of images which portray the beauty of these wonderful moments in the lives of mums-to-be throughout Sussex. I make sure that all photos portray you in your best light. I do this using a range of techniques that I’ve picked up over the years in my role as a specialist in this area.
Having been pregnant myself, I understand that you may be feeling self-conscious about your bump. If this is the case, I can take my photos from above to create a slimming effect, or I can put you at a slight angle when taking profile shots. Just by moving your leg a tiny bit closer to the camera, this will pull back your hip naturally and help hide that booty in the process!
A great way of capturing the joy of pregnancy is to move the Dad into the photos. This moves the focus away from your body and towards the shared joy of this time in your lives, which I capture forever with maternity photography at my Sussex studio. I find that having the Dad in shot tends to add humour to the situation and helps puts mums-to-be at ease.
I’m so glad I had someone take my maternity photos during each of the three times I was pregnant. As my boys get bigger, I can look back on these treasured moments from when each of them was just a little bump. Many mums in and around Sussex see some of my work and tell me they wish they’d had them done too.
