Stunning maternity shoots done in studio


I guess whenever I can, I have to stay true to my style, as I believe it is the best version of my work and craft I can put out into the world. This lovely shoot was booked months in advance by a very excited mommy, who was aware of my style and how my images appear online, and booked me for her special maternity shoot together with her husband.

There are many ways to skin a cat, and many ways to photograph a maternity bump, but the best way I know how, is the way Loci Photography has made a name for itself – with a bit of mood, and a bit of shadow play.

Maternity shoots have also evolved over the years, incredible photographers like Annie Leibovitz have made memorable magic with shoots she did of Demi Moore’s pregnant bump, arguably one of the most influential images ever, and the strong way she depicted Serena Williams when she was pregnant. So it’s not a one size fits all, and once you know the rules, you can break them in any way you want.

I will always have a love for the darker moodier style of my studio, where a mostly one light setup, and the fashion feel of a grey background gives me endless opportunities to create within the bounds of what I like best.

Serving clients for many years already as my brand and business, Loci Photography, has been a blessing. People grow- and evolve with you, their families become bigger, children grow up and become young adults, and people celebrate their birthdays and other special events by booking a photographer because you want something visual to remember your special moments by. So I’ve drifted along with many clients on their own journeys, and they come to visit me here in Pretoria, where the Loci Photograph studio is situated – and I have loved all of it – so far.

See what mommy to be said in the Google review given to Loci Photography: “Brilliant photographer who will put you at ease during the shoot. We were very delighted with the results of the maternity shoot. An absolute pleasure working with Yolandi.”
