Maternity Session at Durdle Door Beach

I was jumping up and down in my chair when Angela emailed me to book a maternity photo shoot at Durdle Door beach in Dorset!! She had seen other engagement shoots and couple’s sessions I’ve photographed at Durdle Door before and wanted to have photos with her partner, Matteo, to celebrate their first baby girl coming into the world!

Angela said, “We love the sea. Durdle Door, with its beach and white cliffs, create for us a special atmosphere that is unique to Great Britain and perfectly complements this incredible and unique moment in our life.” And I couldn’t have said it better myself!

Matteo being from Italy and Angela from Austria, I knew these two already had adventure written into their story. :) When I mentioned the steep walk down to the beach (fully aware Angela was only a few weeks away from her due date!) she assured me she was up to the task and was walking the hills of Austria earlier that week!

Angela and Matteo made my job so easy. It was so clear how in love they were and how much they adored their baby girl already. Matteo said he couldn’t stop touching Angela’s bump and that just made the photos even sweeter.

Thank you both for such a fun adventure at Durdle Door beach! Angela getting into the freezing water, the steep walk up and down the cliffs- these guys ROCKED it.
