So, if you are expecting and are looking for someone to capture this special moment during your pregnancy ― this blog is perfect for you.



Hiring a photographer with professional expertise in maternity and newborn photography is the right choice if you want the best documentation of your pregnancy. By investing in a professional photographer you will not only receive quality images, you will also feel confident knowing that you are being looked after by an experienced photographer that will follow all the best practices and have your safety front of mind.


The cost of maternity photography differs depending on the photographer's experience and other factors. Professional maternity photographers may charge higher compared to other photographers that are just starting out or ‘hobbyists’. This is due to quite a number of factors, the main being that they are established experts in their field through years of dedicated experience. It is also due to investing in premium equipment, software, insurance and education (just to name a few!) to ensure the best quality images and experience for their clients.


It can seem confusing when you look at the price difference when enquiring with various different photographers. The cost of a maternity photographer in Brisbane ranges anywhere from $100 – $2,000. So I wanted to break down the costs and inclusions to look out for so you know what you are paying for. Of course, your choice of a photographer will all come down to your personal preferences and budget, but this will hopefully give you some good insight into your investment and why it’s a good idea to choose a professional maternity photographer.


Top Factors Affecting The Cost Of A Maternity Photographer


1. The Photographer's Experience


The quality of images you'll receive will all depend on the expertise of the photographer that you choose to hire. It takes extensive experience and education to capture your true self, your raw emotions and put you into the most flattering poses for you. A professional photographer will have a lot of sessions under their belt and know all the tips and best advice for getting you comfortable in front of the camera. Previous client reviews are also a good indication of the experience you will receive with a photographer, so be sure to check their website and socials for these client testimonials on your search for the perfect photographer.
