Enjoy your precious bump and baby photo sessions with Mae Photography.

This is such a special, important time of your life that will rush by far too quickly – even though nine months sounds like a long time! There are some days you might think that you’d rather put your feet up with a pizza and a good film rather than getting spruced up for a photo shoot… but you need to capture and record it while you can!

Aside from your bump, making memories in the first few weeks and months of your little one’s life is an opportunity not to be missed. Lots of couples go for a full bump and baby package and continue to enjoy those memories throughout their lives.

Maternity photos can help increase the intimacy between you and the baby; it is a precious and unique time. We can set up the shoot in your home for a relaxed session or meet on location; perhaps at the park or the beach. The best time to do a maternity shoot is at around eight months.

For the newborn photography sessions we come to your home so you and baby can be relaxed and comfortable as it’s important for the baby to stay warm. Special toys, blankets or personal possessions can add meaning and sentiment to these photos. The best time to do a newborn shoot is between one and six weeks.

Whether you’d like to have a special day to include brothers and sisters, cousins, grandparents, aunties, uncles… with your family by your side you’ll have a great time in your photoshoot – the star of the show, of course, being your precious newborn.

baby-photography-colchesterCapture your bump and baby adventure with beautiful photographs – make it more affordable with packages that include pre-booking your sessions and include print packages. There are several very popular options to order, or you can even consider giving as a gift in one of our beautiful presentation boxes.


We capture your individuality in the place you love, whether that be in your garden, skimming stones at the beach or playing ball at the park. When you feel comfortable and relaxed in a familiar environment, the whole experience is more enjoyable and natural looking shots come easily.
We are flexible about locations; as long as its within 20 miles of Colchester, we are happy to meet you there and bring suitable lighting and props along. You may have a favourite place you have in mind, or we can suggest a few options we have visited before.
Would you prefer to have a studio session rather than shooting on location? Rather than coming to us, we’ll come to you. We have a range of backgrounds in black, white and grey and suitable lighting equipment to set up in your home. Studio sessions are a great and controlled way of achieving quality results at any time of day, whatever the weather.

Top Tips: Before your session…

  • Make sure baby is well fed.
  • Make sure baby has a clean nappy.
