Congratulations, you or someone special in your life is expecting- welcome to the wonderful journey of motherhood. A baby shower is the perfect excuse to gather all the people in your life and get excited about your baby’s arrival. If you’re a first-time mum, you can get advice on childcare and parenting, but even if this isn’t your first time around, your friends and family will still be there to offer you support, gifts and well-wishes. Pregnancy isn’t always an easy or glamorous journey, but you can make it one for a few hours.
Mums-to-be deserve to feel beautiful and empowered during this time. Whether you’re looking for a gift, or for yourself, a maternity pampering session is the perfect experience every woman deserves. A maternity photoshoot with me, Lollie Claire Photography will give you the chance to flaunt your body, relax and unwind- plus you will receive a wonderful array of images to use for the baby shower invitation or even, to decorate your venue with. As an extra special bundle, I also offer newborn photography sessions for when your bub has arrived. An enjoying and relaxing experience for both bub, mum and family.
