DIY Maternity photos.

Not only is this a great time of year to be having a baby with the warm summer days ahead, but nature provides a pretty amazing backdrop for some pre baby DIY Maternity photos too! I thought I would show you a few simple shots that I took before my baby was born and how you can do a DIY maternity photoshoot for free too! The bluebells are out in full force and they make a beautiful, natural backdrop for your pregnancy photos. I wore blue to really bring the colours out in the photos and my 2 year old absolutely loved running around in the bluebells as an adventure, not even knowing we were snapping away in the background!

I wanted to share with you some of our photos to hopefully give you some inspiration into how you can also capture some lovely photos of yourself and your bump with a toddler in tow! I wanted it to be as relaxed as possible and Henry and I played as we would do on any walk to help keep the photography in a reportage style. The beautiful background did all the work! The bright lime green of the grass and trees works beautifully against the piercing blue of the bluebells.

I had a professional photoshoot when I was pregnant with Henry, which you can see and read here, but as with everything in this pregnancy I have not been quite organised enough to sort one out this time, but I am so pleased with how these photos have come out and it will be lovely to look back on them as memories of my 2nd, (and last!!) pregnancy! I hope this gives you some inspiration if you’re also looking to do a free and relaxed pregnancy photoshoot.

These photos were taken at Micheldever woods in Hampshire, in between Basingstoke and Winchester where the bluebells are beautiful this time of year. We also popped up to a rapeseed field by a railway bridge, also in Hampshire which provided a beautiful bright yellow background.
