Olivia Maternity - Cyprus

Maternity shoots are one of the most special sessions I can have as a photographer, and even more so when you’re subject is your best friend since 1992. Though Olivia and I live in the UK, it was fitting that this shoot should take place in Cyprus where we first met all those years ago. What started as kids in the park playing games after school has blossomed into what it is today. We’ve been through a lot over the years, some good, some bad and seeing her glowing in her pregnancy reminds us of the next chapter in all of our lives, and it’s a pleasure to join Olivia and father-to-be Marcus on their journey. 

The shoot took place in Agios Georgios in Limassol where the landscapes offered up beautiful backdrops featuring secluded caves, unspoilt shorelines and jaw-dropping sunsets. The session lasted about three hours, running into the evening as we strived to make the most of the vivid golden tones as the sun set.

A big thank you to Stephanie Solomonides for helping us on the day with the styling and providing us with the wonderful dresses that she made by hand.

One of the best parts of a maternity session is knowing there’s a newborn shoot right around the corner and we get to do it all over again! Can’t wait to meet the little one ;) x
