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. 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. The day will come when you want to remember what this moment looked like, so let me capture it for you now with the perfect keepsake – because you can’t turn back the clock.
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.

I would whole heartedly recommend a maternity shoot with Moments by Katie Mitchell, you will not be disappointed with the experience or the amazing product (you will be spoilt for choice, trust me!), and you will have photographs to treasure forever!
Having my a maternity shoot as a gift was so scary but Katie made sure I was relaxed and we had such a laugh! I’m not confident in anyway about the way I look, and Katie made me feel beautiful. Thank you Katie for capturing photos that we will treasure forever xxxxx
Katie is a lovely person and a great photographer. She made me feel very comfortable during my maternity shoot and I am really happy with my photos.
The full Moments by Katie Mitchell studio 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.
If you’d like to include some outdoor/natural moments in your photoshoot, without missing out on my signature studio photographs, look no further. Split your session into two and bring together the best of both worlds!

Yes of course. If you’d like a professional to take the reins with your hair and make-up, I can certainly arrange that for you. However please bear in mind that one of the key things we need to think about during these sessions is consistency, so it’s worth considering whether you’re ready to pay for full hair and make-up before each and every session.
The lady I work with is the lovely Gemma Hull who specialises in gorgeous natural make-up and ‘wow’ hairstyles that will make you look and feel amazing. To see some of Gemma’s work, head on over to her website Gemma Hull Hair and Make-Up. Full hair and make-up costs just £65

The first thing to do is get in touch! Send me a message via my contact form and I’ll get back to you at a time that suits you. We’ll have a quick chat so that I can find out a bit more about you and the style of photographs that you’re drawn to, so that I can tailor your session accordingly. I know it can take courage to book a photoshoot where all the focus is on you so this consultation is also a great opportunity for you to get a feel for who I am and hopefully relax a little about what’s to come.
Providing you’re happy to go forwards, we’ll complete a standard contract that explains all the relevant terms and conditions and set up a payment plan. Please note that progress photograph sessions will not go ahead unless all payments are up to date.
Because clients can come to me at varying stages of their pregnancy, the total amount they pay for their collage will differ. That’s why the credit you receive is earned on a pro-rata basis. With each monthly payment made, you will receive a £5 contribution towards either a maternity or newborn photography session.

I’ve written a blog post detailing the additional precautions in place due to COVID-19. If you have any questions about something that I haven’t covered, then please do not hesitate to ask.
As a newborn photographer, I have to be really careful not to pass on any nasty germs to the babies that enter my studio so, please, if you have any contagious illnesses, I do ask that you stay away from the studio for at least 48 hours. There is no charge for rescheduling planned sessions due to illness, so let’s be safe rather than sorry.
Standard terms and conditions can be found here.
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.
During your first session, we’ll take a little time to make sure that you are happy with the photograph that will set the benchmark for the rest of your sessions. After that, your progress photo sessions are going to super quick! Pop into the studio, I’ll grab the photo and you’ll be on your way again! Of course, if you’d like to stick around for a cuppa, you’ll be more more than welcome!
My studio is located at my home in Longlevens, moments off the A40 and M5 motorway, making it ideally situated for clients in Gloucester, Cheltenham and further afield.
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.
