BEAUTIFUL ANTICIPATION

a belly-only session

Sometimes, all you need may be a maternity session to capture your journey into parenthood. Our standalone Beautiful Anticipation sessions are a maternity-only session meant for mummies and daddies who won't be giving birth in Singapore, mummies and babies who won't be able to leave the house after birth, or those who simply haven't decided on whether they need a newborn session just yet.

Beginning of a journey


Maternity sessions are an excellent way for expectant couples to capture all the joy and anticipation you'll feel during pregnancy. As your body goes through many changes, expectant moms have been known to have a “pregnancy glow”, while expectant dads have the tendency to smile a lot.

The best time to schedule your session is around 28-32 weeks when the belly is nice and round. This will vary with each woman– and some women who carry small, or gain very little weight may choose to wait until 33-35 weeks.

Your Session

Our sessions are done in our boutique lifestyle studio using all natural light. Should you want it to be done at your place, please ensure your home is adequately lit by natural light. Our shoots will typically take place early in the morning, to make the most of the neutral color temperature of early morning sunlight. We typically conduct the session between 10:30am to 12:00pm.

These sessions are done over weekends.

Styling your session


We will plan your session to ensure our expectations for its overall look and feel are perfectly aligned. By understanding what’s important to you, we will then style your session with our signature rustic aesthetic while incorporating personal elements that are meaningful to you.

From choosing a colour palette for your session—which includes your own outfit (and lingerie) or dresses and robes from our Studio Wardrobe Collection—to books you're currently reading or even your favourite flowers!

Do note that we do not purchase outfits or elements for any specific session. Daddies and little boys will also have to provide their own outfits that complement our style.

Note


- Setup – could include mummy only, mummy and daddy, mummy with older kid(s) or family, max of 4
- All chosen images will be in colour and black & white with printing rights.
- Please note that Bows and Ribbons Photography does not give out or sell RAW files/unedited work.
- We do not “return all photographs” because all our images are not deemed finished products until they have gone through the various stages of culling (removing duplicates), colour adjustments, digital editing, and finishing touches.

After Your Session

This may result in occasional delays depending on our workload, but this is because each and every image is created entirely by us, from our camera to your final gallery.
