Maternity Photography

A luxury maternity photography experience

Pregnancy is a time of great change. Maternity photography is a fantastic way to capture your body’s changes as you await the arrival of the new addition to your family.

It can also be a time of uncertainty. Even if you aren’t overjoyed with the changes in your body right now, these images will become a treasured part of this very special time in your life in years to come.

My maternity photo session is fun and relaxed. I will do my very best to choose poses and lighting that are flattering to your changing body.

All of my maternity photos are digitally refined to enhance your natural beauty. My goal is to make you feel and look as radiant and beautiful as possible!


Gowns & fabrics

We offer a complete set of maternity gowns and fabrics to choose from. You don’t have to worry about a thing.

Hair & Makeup Artistry

Professional hair & makeup are included in all our maternity sessions. You deserve a relaxing pampering day!

When to book a maternity photography session?




We want your belly to be beautiful and round but it would be best to get the shots before you are too uncomfortable.


You can book as early as 12 weeks of pregnancy to guarantee a spot in our busy calendar. Maternity sessions can be done in the studio or outdoor location all year round.

Studio VS Outdoor Maternity Session

Hair & Makeup artistry is included either way

Before your maternity photography session, we will chat and discuss your goals and preferences for your photoshoot, as well as decide if you prefer a studio photography session or an outdoor photography session. I have maternity gowns and accessories for you to try and select your favourites. If you are comfortable with nude/skin maternity shots and/or fabric shots, I have plenty of lovely fabric and wardrobes in the studio. I will respect your style and create images that you will LOVE.

If your partner and/or other children will be participating in the maternity session, they should wear solid clothing that coordinates with yours and I will give you some advice once we decide on your wardrobe during the pre-consultation meeting.

Most studio maternity photography sessions take about one to two hours. Some of that time will involve setting up the shots and lighting, changing clothes and discussing poses and ideas. Outdoor maternity photography sessions are about one hour long. Maternity sessions are always laid back and fun. I will take my time to make sure we capture some amazing shots of you and your growing belly.

5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We have booked a few sessions with Amanda (maternity, newborn, and cake smash) and we always enjoyed visiting her lovely studio.

Amanda is warm and friendly which made us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. She is also professional in which she provides all the details we needed to know before the photo sessions as well as her amazing work in a timely manner.


5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We did our maternity and newborn session with Amanda and she was simply amazing.

Our maternity location was selected by her and the pictures came out so beautifully.

I will go back to her for my toddler session or cake smash and would definitely recommend her to someone who is looking for perfection.

“I’m Amanda & I’m passionate about maternity photography.

Hello and welcome to my page! I’m Amanda, the creative face behind Amanda Dams Photography and I’d love to meet you!

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but it doesn’t always feel that way. While you may be lucky enough to enjoy some perks, like glowing skin, luxurious locks, and a cute baby bump, you’re also going to see the downsides of pregnancy – swollen ankles, newfound tiger stripes, and a rollercoaster of mood swings.  Sounds fun, right? Even though pregnancy can have its less-than-enjoyable moments, your body is doing an incredibly beautiful thing. You’ll never regret documenting this change with maternity photos and I’m here to help you with that!
