BELLY TO BABY COLLECTION

From inside to earthside

Document your baby's journey into the world with the ultimate Bows and Ribbons Photography collection. From when they were just little flutters of kicks in your belly until they emerge as the adorable newborn you've dreamt of, the Belly to Baby Collection consists of a maternity session and a newborn session, packaged together so you don't have to worry about missing a thing.

Maternity sessions are a beautiful way for expectant couples to capture all the joy and anticipation involved in welcoming a brand new baby. Throughout pregnancy, your body will go through many changes, and expectant moms have been known to have that famous “pregnancy glow”. Combined with a newborn session after your baby is born, you will have the perfect set of images to add to your family's photo heirloom to be cherished for decades to come. 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.

Newborn sessions are usually scheduled within the first 2 weeks (6 to 12 days) because babies tend to sleep more during this window. At this age, newborns can be positioned safely and more easily when swaddled in blankets, wrapped in our organic fabrics, or posed in our handmade bonnets, headbands and tiebacks. But while posed newborns look lovely, we also try to achieve natural lifestyle poses with mom and dad (as well, as older siblings, if they’re present).

Talent & Time

All our sessions will be captured by two photographers. We will provide all the props, outfits for the newborn baby and photographic equipment needed for your shoot. This also includes digital artistic enhancements and retouching for all images in post.

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 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Maternity sessions are done over weekends, while newborn sessions are conducted during weekdays.

On-Location


There will be an additional charge of $250 when the newborn session is done at your own place, and $100 if the belly session is done at your own place or at an agreed upon outdoor location in Singapore.

Styling your session


We offer a wide selection of wardrobe choices for our mums & dads, though you are welcome to bring your own outfit!

Clothing choice is of the utmost importance at our photography sessions. When you are choosing a color scheme please bear in mind that these photographs will probably be hanging on your walls at home, so choose a colour palette that complements your decor.

If your spouse and older children are joining you in the photographs, it’s always a good idea for everyone to be colour coordinated.

We will have a 15-minute consult over the phone to plan our session and to run through the questionniare you will receive once your booking has been confirmed.

After Your Session

  • Images take two (2) weeks to process for the first viewing. You will receive a password-protected online preview gallery where you can view the photographs from our session. We typically process about 10% to 15% of the images achieved during a session.
  • You will be given two (2) weeks to select your favorite photographs.
  • Final images are in full resolution, canvas-ready and will be available for download minimum of four (4) weeks after you have selected your photographs from your online gallery.
  • All final images will have been individually hand-edited by us, and are never outsourced, to ensure that they meet our highest artistic and consistency standards. 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.
  • Your {Memory Box} with your prints of all your selected images will be sent to your home via registered mail two (2) weeks after you have downloaded your images.
