Lorraine's Maternity session | Banbridge Newborn and Children photographer Dagmara Shannon Photography
Lorraine came to my studio in Banbridge to help me out with some experiments, first I was trying out my new light set up, She wore a beautiful maternity gown I bought from USA
This beautiful expecting mum was helping me then with creating this maternity dress, it was a lot of fun and giggles, but we managed to pull it off! Doesn't she look glowing? I LOVE maternity sessions!
Did you know I have an offer for Maternity session if booked with the newborn session? Check it out here:
The best time for maternity photo session is 33-36 weeks, but if you feel your bump would be too big or too small at that stage the session can be scheduled earlier or later.

I was so pleased to hear of the safe arrival of Petra, and we started planning her newborn photo session right away. Silvia and Pedro came to my Banbridge studio together with Petra and her two older sisters when Petra was less than 2 weeks old. Isn't she just precious?
I had this wee bonnet made to order by a very talented Banbridge lady, going by the name of Kitty's Spindle, I couldn't wait to use it, and it fitted this beautiful new baby girl just perfectly!
The girls were very eager to have photos done with their brand new baby sister
Mum and dad are over the moon with their new baby, congratulations again!
Silvia brought this absolutely stunning piece of jewellery, a beautiful coral necklace, and I just had to get it in the photos.
Ideally I like to take maternity photos around 33 -36 weeks gestation, before mum gets too tired and fed up, but if she's up for it even later than 36 weeks I'm happy to oblige.
Did you know that Maternity session fee is discounted if booked together with the newborn session?
I was looking forward to meeting with Miss Phoebe and her mum for a while and they finally came to my new studio in Banbridge.
Phoebe wasn't quite sure of the backdrop paper and kept running off it - and gave her mum a good workout. Here's just a few photos from her session and there are more to come yet, I will add them here as soon as they are ready.
She's rocking the fluff like a star!
Little Miss Attitude: 'I have a biscuit and there's nothing you can do about it!'
As many photographers before me, and I'm sure many more to come, I've been struggling to explain to my clients, and potential clients why the digital files are so expensive. Sure the files are ready when I present them to the client, so it doesn't take much to pop them on a disc, right?
Only recently I came across someone comparing the digital files to a dairy cow.
So the files are the cow, and from the cow you can get milk (a print) cream (a canvas) cheese (a framed print) , heck! you can even get a whole new calf (an album)!!!
Again and again!
Once you sell the cow, you get nothing... Nothing.
So would you sell your cow cheap?
Cheaper than milk or cheese?
Once the photographer sells you the files they lose the potential income opportunity, and you can print as many items as you wish (you get all the milk and cheese you want!)
And as much as most photographers love what they do, and they wouldn't have it any other way - this is their job! They, like every one, have bills to pay, kids to feed, and a mortgage to pay (not to mention the cost of running their business)
30 quid for 'pictures on a disc' just won't do.
