Maternity Photography Sydney Inner West
Pregnancy is an incredible time in a woman’s life – whether it is the first time or the fifth! Every week your body grows and changes, making a brand new and unique little person. The female body’s ability to grow and birth a brand new person is an amazing miracle and achievement. Maternity photography is all about celebrating the beauty of pregnancy allowing you to look back on just how beautiful you looked (even if you didn’t feel very glamorous!), and to truly appreciate your amazing
When is the best time for my maternity session?
Maternity sessions are best done when you are between 32 and 36 weeks pregnant. This is so that your bump is nice and round, but before the final few weeks when you may feel more uncomfortable and tired.
How long do maternity sessions last?
Maternity sessions are a lot of fun and a great chance for us to get to know each other before your baby's newborn session. Maternity sessions usually take about 45 mins to 1 hour. In that time I aim to do a variety of poses, setups and outfits changes. I also include images with your partner and other children (where applicable).
Where do maternity photo sessions take place? Do you offer outdoor maternity sessions?
All my maternity photo sessions take place at my Sydney Inner West photography studio in Balmain. Here I have everything at my fingertips to make your session with me a special one. At this time, I am not offering outdoor maternity sessions.
Do I need to bring along anything special to wear?
I have a range of maternity outfits you are welcome to use during your session. I also encourage my Mums to bring along a plain dress in black/white/grey and a pair of jeans/leggings with a plain white/black singlet top. If you would like to wear something extra special, you may like to hire a maternity gown from Mama Rentals
How are your maternity sessions priced?
My maternity sessions are priced separately to all of my other session types. Maternity sessions are optional add-ons to my Newborn sessions and are charged at a flat extra fee of $595. This includes your maternity session and 15 high-resolution files.
When should I book?
I offer maternity sessions combined with newborn photo session bookings only. As I typically book out several months in advance, I encourage you to book as early as possible in your pregnancy to avoid disappointment.
Hi! I'm Amy Tong. I'm a newborn and baby photographer in Sydney, Australia. I'm Mum to 2 little ones, and wife to my best friend of almost 20 years. I've always been creative. A lover of music, art and history. Photography has been an important part of my life since I first picked up a camera as a hobby back in 2008. I knew that I wanted to pursue photography as a career.
I began my career as a professional baby photographer back in 2012 and have had the honour of photographing over 300 babies since then. To me, photography allows us to preserve moments in time for future generations. I can't think of any better job in the world. I'd love to hear from you and help you hold on to these special moments too..
** MATERNITY LEAVE UNTIL 2020 **
Please note that I AM TAKING MATERNITY LEAVE FROM SEPTEMBER 2019 until april 2020. After that time, I will only be offering a limited amount of sessions for the remainder of the year as i try to slow things down and enjoy my third and last bundle of joy.
If you'd like a session with me in 2020, be sure to get in touch :)
Very best wishes!
