Why did you come for a photoshoot at ZigZag Photography?
“My sister bought us a bump and baby shoot for Christmas - it was such a lovely gift to receive!”
Have you ever had a professional photoshoot before?
“We have had a few shoots before for our engagement/pre-wedding but having a photoshoot which focuses on telling the story of my pregnancy and introducing our bundle of joy was a totally different experience!”
Tell us about your family
“Dan and I got married at Christmas 2016 after meeting back in 2010 at one of his gigs - he plays lead guitar for local covers band First Order. I fell pregnant in August 2018 and it was the most amazing journey - so capturing pictures of my bump at 35 weeks was a perfect way to capture this. We then came back with our new baby girl Ronnie Rae when she was just 5 weeks old!”
Did you bring in any personal item with you? Why did you choose these items?
“We brought a little wooden plaque with us which a friend gave to us which had Ronnie’s name and date of birth on it, and of course we brought a little pink tutu for our princess to wear!”
Were you nervous before your photoshoot?
“I was a little nervous before my bump photoshoot but the photographer made me feel totally at ease - listening to what I wanted to capture but also suggesting some great shots too. It could have been nerve wrecking bringing our 5 week old daughter but we were given lots of time to ensure Ronnie was happy and settled (including feeding and changing facilities) and did not feel rushed in any way - Ronnie was so relaxed she even had a little sleep!”
“What was your favourite part of your ZigZag experience?”
“The whole experience was great but coming back in for our viewing of the photos was amazing! ZigZag put together a show for you of all your images projected on to a big screen with music which is such a lovely way to see the images for the first time - Ronnie was fascinated by the lights and music too!”
What did you friends and family think of your final images?
“Everyone loves the images!”
Do you have any other comments for us?
“Thanks so much for capturing such a special time in our life :-)”
