I’ve known Maja since we went to Uni together (way too long ago!), and then we also worked together for a couple of years before I had my daughter. We don’t often get to see each other, but when we do, it’s like no time has passed. I was so excited to hear that Maja was pregnant with her first little boy. I knew that he was very wanted, and I knew that her and her husband Ross would shower him with love. I was also very excited to take some images for her to help her remember this beautiful time. Maja is always beautiful – but especially pregnant! I met her at her home for a Lifestyle Maternity session. It was a cold and rainy day, so we were both quite happy to stay indoors for the most part! I think pregnancy is such a magical time – it’s truly amazing what the body can do, and I love that we’re able to celebrate it through photos. I never had professional maternity photos in any of my pregnancies, and I really wish that I did. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of your stomach growing, your baby moving around inside you and that feeling that you’re about to do something very special. Of course there are always challenges that come with pregnancy as well, but it’s amazing how they’re forgotten afterwards (until you’re reminded of course!).

Maja and I also wanted to get some location shots at The Secret Garden. It was still raining, but we decided to attempt it anyway. She changed her outfit and took an umbrella – and I actually think that made the images even more special! We didn’t stay there long, but I’m glad that we went.
