Valentine’s Day might have been a day you enjoyed as a couple before the sleepless night, or the stress of family life came along. A romantic dinner out, or maybe a little weekend break to celebrate the love for each other. I believe love should be celebrated every day, not just one day a year, but I surely remember some lovely dates before being a mum.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day when you are expecting a new baby or when you have a new family just looks a little different. The whole family is now your big love, and you should all celebrate it together.
Photography makes perfect Valentine’s gifts for expecting parents or new parents, as it’s a lasting reminder of your love. So here is some way I could help you to mark Valentine’s Day 2023!
Maternity Photoshoot | Valentine’s Gifts for Expecting Parents
If you are expecting a baby this year, a maternity shoot marks one of the most special and precious times in your life. Your family is changing, perhaps it’s your last few months or weeks as a couple before welcoming your baby. Or maybe your family is growing again.
Maternity shoots can include your partner or children or can just be all about you and your bump. Babies are made with love, so a maternity session makes the perfect choice for Valentine’s gift. You’ll need to be anywhere between 28 and 34 weeks pregnant for the best results though, so if you’re not quite there yet, you might consider a couple shoot instead. Or simply book it as a gift and use it when the right time comes. You can find all the information about my London maternity photoshoot on the website.
Book your maternity session before the 14th of February, and receive a complimentary enlargement print of your favourite image!
It’s not often you get the luxury of time in front of the camera together, right? All too often, we snatch quick selfies and only rarely do we like the results! I’m experienced in posing and lighting to create flattering portraits that you will love. I offer a range of product options, so whether you’re someone who loves a desk print to remind you of loved ones, or you’re someone who prefers to wow visitors to your home with a large piece of wall art, I have something for you.
Newborn Shoot | Valentine’s Gifts for New Parents
If it’s too late for a maternity shoot, as your baby is due to arrive soon, then a newborn shoot is surely a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! Your new baby is the proof of your love in your arms. Being your first baby, you will have a calming and relaxing time in my studio with a hot cup of tea in your hands. You will have a little break, and you can have a little nap too. I will take some gorgeous portraits of your baby and then the most precious ones – portraits of you and your baby.
This is the beginning of your story as a family, and one day they will be a priceless memory.
If the days of being just the two of you are long gone, then you might want to opt for a family session instead. Beautiful portraits of your family are lasting and priceless. What an amazing Valentine’s gift they make. Your family is the outward sign of your love for each other – and I’m not just talking about you and your partner. Family portraits also capture the love that siblings have for each other – even if it’s fleeting!
Portraits are such a thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day, whichever session you choose.
They’ll still be giving you joy long after the roses have wilted and the chocolates are eaten.
They are priceless reminders of your love for each other and for your family. Capturing these moments is something no one ever regrets.
