A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Jamillah and her perfect bump for my first maternity photo shoot.

The first time I photographed Jamillah was in June 2010 when I photographed her wedding to Ken at Woodborough Hall in Nottingham (which can be viewed here). In 2011, I photographed Jamillah in a ‘rock my dress’ photo shoot at Elvaston Castle (which can be viewed by clicking here) and when she contacted me to say she was expecting her first baby last year, I was absolutely delighted for her and Ken as I know how much it means to them.

The photo shoot for her maternity session took place at home initially following by a few outdoor portraits. Having spoken with Jamillah prior to the photo session, we discussed the kind of photos that we wanted to capture. As well as portraits of Jamillah showing her bump (indoors and outdoors), Jamillah was keen to capture everyday moments of her relaxing at home and in the kitchen (where she spends a lot of her time!).

Jamillah is gorgeous on the inside and outside and pregnancy is definitely suiting her as she is radiant.

Jamillah had her make-up done by the lovely Sarah Gamble who also did her make-up for her wedding day and the rock my dress photo shoot so it was lovely to catch up with her again.

Here are a selection of photos from the photo session. If you are interested in having a maternity photo shoot, please get in touch via my website or by telephone on 07977 499473.
