You Deserve to BE SEEN!

You Deserve to BE SEEN!

aka Who Does She Think She Is?!?!?!

The why: 

WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS?  It’s a question often hurled at women who exude confidence, power, and beauty. 

It’s no secret that women face unrealistic expectations when it comes to their appearance, behavior, and achievements. These expectations can create a toxic environment that prevents women from loving themselves for who they are. The pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way, and achieve unrealistic goals can lead to feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and anxiety.

The media, advertising, and societal norms have created a distorted image of what it means to be a woman. Women are often portrayed as flawless, perfect beings who never have a bad day. This unrealistic image can lead women to feel like they’re not good enough or that they need to change themselves to fit in.

It’s time to break free from these unrealistic expectations and embrace self-love. Women deserve to feel confident and proud of who they are, regardless of their appearance, behavior, or achievements. At Bella Daly Photography, we believe that every woman deserves to be seen and celebrated. We strive to create a safe and supportive space where women can feel comfortable in their own skin and embrace their unique beauty. We believe in giving women permission to be seen and captured through our personalized photoshoots. 

Our sessions are designed to capture the unique beauty of each woman, while also celebrating the incredible journey of motherhood. Whether it’s your first pregnancy or you’ve experienced this joy before, we will help you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. 

SO, LET NO ONE HOLD YOU BACK. YOU ARE A WARRIOR, A GODDESS, A QUEEN, AND YOU DESERVE TO BE SEEN AND CELEBRATED. Embrace your true self and know that you are worthy of love and acceptance just the way you are.

The how: 

I believe that every pregnancy is unique and special, and I’m dedicated to capturing your true personality and style in your photographs. I don’t rely on heavy retouching or Photoshop to significantly alter your appearance. Instead, I aim to capture your natural beauty, genuine emotions, and authentic moments. 

As a photographer, I understand the importance of shaping the body and image with shadow and light. It’s all about creating depth and dimension, highlighting your best features while minimizing any imperfections. But more than that, it’s about capturing the essence of who you are.

At Bella Daly Photography, we celebrate the beauty and strength of women during the incredible journey of pregnancy and beyond. Our mission is to create a safe and welcoming space where new mothers can express their individuality and capture their precious moments (whether it’s during the journey of pregnancy or the early days with a newbornn). So, let no one hold you back. You are a warrior, a goddess, a queen, and you deserve to be seen and celebrated.

Planning your session

To get the best results, I recommend scheduling your session to fall between 28-36 weeks of pregnancy, when your belly is round and pops but you’re not yet feeling too uncomfortable. 

And if you want to pamper yourself, I suggest treating yourself to hair and makeup to enhance your natural beauty and reflect in your images. If you choose my BELLY BEAUTIFUL package, hair and makeup are included in your session. Your hair will be styled at the nearby hair salon Vibrance, and your makeup will be expertly applied by Kelly. This means that you can sit back, relax, and let the professionals work their magic, leaving you looking and feeling your absolute best.

Once you have booked a session with me, I will send you a QUESTIONNAIRE to fill out. This is an essential part of helping me understand your personality, preferences, and vision, which I use to plan a unique and personalized session just for you. 

Additionally, I will ask you to send me a few images via WhatsApp, Messenger, Email or Instagram (your pick) that inspire you. Don’t worry; I won’t replicate these images during our session, but they will help me create a vision board that we’ll discuss on the day of our meeting.

Before the session, please read my prep guide. It includes important information such as when to book, how long the session will take, the location, what to wear, what about nails, and how to make the most of your session. All of this information combined will create an amazing experience that you will never forget!

IMPORTANT! The one thing I would need you to definitely bring is a nude colour strapless bra and thongs or g-string, as we will be working with see-through fabrics.

During the session

First thing first – you will be welcomed with a champagne glass full of freshly squeezed orange juice – AND WHY NOT?!. 

In my studio sessions, my aim is to create timeless portraits that are both simple and elegant. I achieve this by using simple backgrounds and carefully selected outfits, such as a black dress or bodysuit, along with beautiful fabrics that evoke a dreamy and ethereal quality. I have a selection of outfits and fabrics in my studio but I also encourage you to bring something that is yours (i.e. white shirt, leather jacket, your boho dress, black lace bra, etc. – something that represents your style). 

I also enjoy creating powerful images that depict women as queens or other strong figures (i.e. Beyonce or whoever inspires you). By carefully crafting each shot, I aim to create a lasting and impactful image that truly captures the essence of the person in front of my lens.

This session is focused on celebrating your journey as a woman bringing new life into the world. If you’d like to include your partner, children, sister, mother or a furry baby for some of the images, I recommend we invite them to join you for the last 30 minutes of the session. While this day is primarily about you and empowering your beauty as a mother-to-be, having your loved ones with you can add a special touch to the experience.

If you plan on bringing your partner or children or mother/sister, etc.r to your photo session, it’s best if you all coordinate your outfits. I recommend sticking to solid colors and avoiding patterns and logos to ensure that the focus remains on you and your baby. This will also help to make sure that your photos remain timeless and beautiful for years to come. For your convenience, my prep guide contains a Pinterest board that features suggested colors to aid you in your outfit selection. Feel free to browse and explore. 


After the session:

After your photo session with Bella Daly Photography, your images will go through a careful selection process to ensure that only the best ones are included in your final gallery. 

Once I edited the images, I invite you to a viewing appointment where you will have the opportunity to view your images and select the best ones, or ALL, for your final gallery. 

Additionally, I will showcase various framing options and other add-ons so you can create a collection that perfectly suits your needs.

I look forward to seeing you and creating a beautiful collection of photos that you will cherish forever.
