As I am settling into my new studio I am excited to have time to catch up with my blog. I have been shooting so many fabulous pregnancy portraits recently which will follow in subsequent posts. Meantime, here is a timeless black and white maternity portrait which I just love.

Just a quick preview of the latest froggy pose I set up and photographed last weekend. It’s getting to be a very popular pose in newborn photography sessions with lots of parents requesting it. The key to capturing a successful and relaxed looking baby in the froggy pose is to have your newborn photographed as soon as possible after giving birth. I would suggest between 12 to 21 days at the latest. The baby needs to be well fed and needless to say sleepy. The umbilical cord with the clamp also cannot be present as it gets in the way, so I recommend waiting till it dries and falls off naturally.

More images from this beautiful baby’s newborn photography session coming soon (her two older brothers and a sister were also present). This cute young lady is still waiting to be named but as her brothers and sister had quite original names, I expect she too will have a strong name which will suit her character too.

How cute is five week old baby Abi?! It seems that the ‘froggy’ pose is getting quite popular lately with parents who come in with their babies for their newborn photography sessions. It’s not an easy pose and only few photographers in London offer to do it. The photographer has to have a lot of patience, skill, experience and confidence to set it up. The key to this shot is having a very sleepy and relaxed baby and it’s generally recommended for babies under three weeks old. Luckily for us baby Abi was few weeks premature which gave us the opportunity to get this froggy pose shot for his mum.

I have trained how to do the froggy pose with the talented newborn photographer Amy McDaniel who travelled to London last year. It was a rewarding experience where I learned all aspects of doing the froggy pose safely. To watch a master newborn photographer at work is a fabulous opportunity. Add to that Amy’s lovely personality, a wealth of experience she shares with you and you know that your newborn photography will never be the same. The biggest asset I learned was to be patient and not give up. Thank you Amy!

Pregnancy photography at The Baby Show

Wow, how exciting was The Baby Show I decided to do at the last minute this year? Very exciting indeed! I was mainly showcasing maternity photography with just a few of my baby photographs and cannot believe how many interested mums-to-be I met. There were ladies ranging from 12 weeks pregnant to others, just waiting for their babies to be born at any minute. My bookings for pregnancy photography have now made my diary almost burst at the seams which is very exciting indeed.

To celebrate the success of The Baby Show I have a brand new luxurious package;

It’s called VOGUE –

A unique maternity photography experience at this stunning location.
There are specially designed gowns being made as we speak which will compliment the decor and complete the fine art look I will create for you and of you. I am quite sure that these sessions will be like no other in London! Contact me on 07740 866 964 or drop me an email – nemimiller@gmail.com to find out more.

Lastly, a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to my family and friends for their help in making my debut at The Baby Show.

Dave from Hi-Speed Photos for his wonderful prints. Lawrence, my husband, for driving everything to ExCel, assembly of the stand furniture and generally coming up with great ideas. Cristina, my best friend for driving all the way from Kent to help man my stand on Saturday, my busiest day at the show. This ensured I was able to take a well deserved coffee and lunch break. Help from Cristina number 2 and Harriet in covering the stand on the other two days. Lastly to Stewart, my friend who saved the day by organizing extra strength sticky dots which secured my prints on the walls of my stand.

Is this the best maternity dress I have seen a mum-to-be bring for her pregnancy photography session? Vania’s made to measure Thai silk dress is jaw droppingly gorgeous. It’s opulent in every sense of the word and as you can see it photographed beautifully too.

Vania had a large selection of luxurious lingerie to use in her shoot and I captured many timeless and intimate portraits of her, looking her absolute best . Please rest assured that every pregnancy portrait you see on my blog or webpage has been cleared with my client. I respect the fact that some of your images are not for general public viewing and you won’t have a nasty surprise and see your nudes on display for all to see.

I love it when husbands or partners come along for the shoot and offer weekend slots to make sure they have no excuses. Pets are welcome too and Coco was so well behaved that I might consider pet photography 😉

I feel very privileged to meet so many pregnant ladies and to capture their maternity portraits. Here are few more ideas for what to bring to your session;

 

If you have a stunning figure then Wolford’s black Dress Fatal will accentuate your maternity curves.

Swollen feet and ankles? A maxi dress or one of my drapes will be perfect for you.

Nothing to wear? You are in the right hands as I specialise in nude maternity portraits and can honestly say that 90% of the ladies who come to my studio want to have a beautiful nude or semi-nude fine art portrait of themselves.

If baring all is not for you, bring clothing that represents your style – jeans and body hugging tops are great. Maybe add a chunky knit jumper and a bola necklace to accessorise. Short or long dresses always look fabulous and so does a man’s shirt or a frilly blouse which you can leave open to expose your pregnant belly.

Lastly, for those who would like to treat themselves, I work with talented Rachel a professional hair and make-up artist who can weave her magic on you. There is an introductory offer of just £65 (instead of £120). Please mention it to me when booking your session so I can confirm Rachel’s availability.
