My maternity shoot with the Yerburys

I’m not just saying this because I am a photographer, but I think that pregnancy is an important time to document. In the overall scheme of things, it’s over so quickly (she says while thinking it will never end), and our bodies go through so many changes. I think it’s a shame when some women I talk to seem so set against getting photographed while pregnant. They don’t realise that all they need to do is find a photographer they trust to make them look fantastic.

So, with that in mind, I was absolutely thrilled when Trevor Yerbury offered to shoot my bump when I ran into him at the SWPP convention last January. In my opinion, that’s like Picasso saying he’d like to paint me. I was thrilled and jumped at the chance to have my Demi Moore moment with the Yerburys.

I am so happy that I have these amazing mementos of this special time in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Trevor and Faye, for this truly priceless gift. And also a big thank you to Lauren Gollan, who did my ultra-glam make up.

If you live in Scotland or are taking your Babymoon there, I highly recommend that you get in touch with them and make an appointment. Also, for photographers, Trevor and Faye run a series of workshops in fine art nude and boudoir photography at locations across the UK.
