Thank you for your interest in booking your Maternity Session with Jay Saunders Photography.

Maternity Sessions are designed to document and celebrate the beautiful new life growing inside of you.

Take time out to be proud of yourself and what you and your amazing body is doing, look back at this amazing period of your life and think WOW!



Ideally it’s best to book them in for when your around 30 weeks pregnant when your bump is beautiful but your not feeling too tired.



We will have a full design consultation before the shoot and you will have full use of all my wraps, dresses and headpieces. But please bring along anything else you would like to be photographed in.



All sessions take place in my home studio in Ongar, Essex. I have a lovely studio at the back of my garden, separate from my house. 

Sessions will last roughly 1.5 hours long, however I do not book back to back sessions so we can take our time.



Weekday Sessions fees are £90.00

Weekend Sessions fees are £150.00

If you would like to book your Newborn Session at the same time, you will receive a 50% discount of the Newborn Session fee.

This does not include images. You will be invited back to the studio 2-3 weeks after your session for an ordering appointment where you will be shown all your final edited images and you can make your purchases from.

We love Jay and the photos she took of our 3 week old daughter.
I was certain I wanted plain photos taken and ended up changing my mind and having loads of props because she had so many to choose from.
Jay made the baby really comfortable and we just sat and watched her work her magic.
When we came back to view the photos it was amazing to see what she had done and the photos were even better than we expected.
Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back when the baby is older for more photos.
Thanks Jay.
