Whether you’ve had a happy surprise, you’ve longed for this moment for a very long time or perhaps everything has just gone exactly to plan – congratulations on your pregnancy. What your body goes through to bring your new baby into this world is absolutely incredible – although, admittedly, it doesn’t always feel that great at the time. My maternity photoshoots are all about taking some time out for you, before your focus shifts almost entirely onto this new little person in your life. Be proud of your body. Celebrate the amazing transformation you are going through to grow your family. And treasure this time. Because, soon, those first flutters of movement, the hiccups and that precious feeling of life growing inside your body will become distant memories.
Please don’t be put off if you get nervous in front of the camera. I’m great at putting women at ease during these sessions and every pose we do (yes, we – I get involved too!) and outfit you put on is designed to make you look and feel at your best.
The full Moments by Katie Mitchell photography experience with your photographs available for you in both digital format and print. These sessions are ideal for those wanting their partners or children to get involved.

As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your view and order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.
If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.
At your view and order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful, customised slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you aren’t happy with your photographs, I will happily refund your deposit. I can happily report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!
Orders must be made at the view and order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.
I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to two charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles and The Family Haven.
You can find out a little more about this here.
A £100 deposit is payable for all photo sessions to secure your booking. This is then used as a credit towards whichever package or products you would like to buy. The deposit is non-refundable in the event of a no-show.
Family photoshoots can take place at any time in your family’s life but honestly, the best time is now! Don’t put it off in the hope that a perfect day will come; you might end up regretting that decision. Let me help you to celebrate family life as it is now!
I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.
I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
