There is nothing quite so fascinating as watching your own body grow a new life.

Capture your changing shape with images to treasure, before you transform into Supermum.

One day, you and your child can look back at these images together, they will giggle at your big tummy and you will think: "Wow, how young and beautiful I was – and how unprepared for the adventure of motherhood."

Seven months pregnant is an optimum time for your shoot.

Stoke Newington studio
Home visits within an hour's drive



I offer studio, home or outside maternity photography sessions so please view my portfolio and see which you prefer. Obviously, outside is best left to the warmer weather. I have a small selection of maternity dresses and open fronted silk slips you may like to borrow (all freshly laundered) and of course do bring your own dresses, shirts and maternity jeans etc. We can discuss what you would like to wear in a phone call before your session. 7 months pregnant is the optimum time for you shoot.

My studio is located in Stoke Newington, East London, with onsite parking. It is 15 minutes' walk from Arsenal Tube, or Canonbury overland station, and on several bus routes. At my studio, I will use two different backgrounds and lighting arrangements, and you can change clothing a few times to give varied images to choose from. We can discuss beforehand if there is anything you would particularly like to recreate. Following your session, the images will be carefully edited then presented in an online private gallery, approx. two weeks after the shoot. You are then ready to select and purchase a bundle of digital images to download, and order prints from. A £100 fee is payable to book your shoot and this covers session only, not images – see below for pricing of the digital bundles you can choose from.

If you would prefer an at-home maternity session, I can bring a few dresses and we can discuss beforehand what you will wear. I will also bring my own professional lighting and we will use your bedroom, or living room, as background.

For outside sessions, we can discuss the best location near to you, and we can reschedule should the weather demand.

Home and outdoor sessions are priced differently to studio. There is a set fee for the session and this includes a set of 30+ edited, digital images, in an online gallery for downloading. A £100 fee is payable in advance to book, then the balance after seeing your proofs but before being able to download the full-resolution images.

“I Highly recommend doing a photoshoot with Nicola.
She is a great professional and you will feel very comfortable with her.
My husband and I had a maternity photo shoot and she was so willing to try all kind of poses and clothes...
The pictures turned out so beautiful -
we are thrilled with the results!”

Maternity photography at-home sessions are very relaxing and convenient for those mums-to-be feeling a little too tired to travel to the studio, who prefer their home comforts and maybe also have small children at home.

This option can work really well if you would like to have some pictures of the children, some of the whole family and some of just yourself, in peace, while your partner looks after your other children surrounded by all their toys – not so easy in the studio.

An at-home session fee includes 40+ edited, high-resolution digital images presented in an online gallery. This has a built-in print shop making it super- convenient to order prints and framed products, and you can easily share your gallery with family.

At home maternity portrait in Stoke Newington

“We had a maternity and family photoshoot at home, with Nicola in April 2021. Nicola is very friendly and professional, she made us all feel at ease and was great with getting our little 3 year old daughter, who was a bit too excited, to focus. As we didn't know what type of shots we wanted, we relied on Nicola to direct us and she did a very good job. We are so happy with the pictures. Great quality and fast turnaround. Highly recommended!”


The studio will be cleaned before and after each client and all door handles, tables and items you are likely to contact with will be cleaned with antibacterial solution and I will provide and use hand sanitizer. Masks are no longer a government requirement, but I'm happy to wear one if requested.

If you have been in contact with anyone with a cough or fever, or if you feel unwell (even mildly) before your session, please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule. If you become unwell within seven days after your session, please let me know immediately, even if you feel it is only mild.

Thank you for helping me keep my studio a clean and safe environment for myself and all of my clients.
