Approximately 270 days separate the mom-to-be from the sweet new mom. Days of pure enchantment with everything that is happening, days spent daydreaming about everything that is still going to happen. These are the days that will never be forgotten, that deserve to be eternalised. A unique and unrepeatable time with this baby’s heart still beating on the inside, but already adding magic to this fairy tale that is being created on the outside.


The pregnancy portrait is everything it should be – elegant and sensual, powerful and beautiful, romantic and timeless. An ode to the female body that grows and exceeds itself in the name of life, in the name of love. We capture this transformation from the angle of beauty, curves and that amazing glow that only a pregnant woman radiates. Woman, mother, stunning.


Our experience tells us that the best time to schedule a Maternity Session is between week 24 and 30. We want you to be calm and comfortable, to enjoy a few hours that are all about you. The session lasts approximately 2 hours and will take place in the privacy of our studio, where we create dreamy backdrops to bring this experience to life. We’ll have a prior consultation to outline all the details (from poses to the colours and accessories we’ll use), including special requests and clarifying any questions you may have.


When you arrive at the session, you’ll have a team of professionals waiting for you, to take care of your look, starting with hair and makeup, always under your guidance, because there is only one queen in this fairy tale.


We work with delicate fabrics such as satin, silk, velvet and lace to bring a touch of romance, movement and fluidity to the photographs. There’s also room for more fitted garments, for women who are a little more daring, as well as the option of nude portraits, in all their essence and elegance. Everything we use is properly cared for and gently washed between sessions with natural, chemical-free detergents.


Whether or not you have ever participated in a photo shoot, we’re here to help prepare the entire experience, from start to finish, always in complete synchrony. Please don’t hesitate to let us know what you are imagining! We appreciate your punctuality on the day of the session, we want you to enjoy everything you are entitled to.


We were informed of everything from the temperature of the place to the food. When we arrived we were extremely well received, there was a sign with our daughter's name on the door. As we entered, the place was lovely warm and comfortable. Sofia stayed with the photographer, while I was being looked after by the make up lady, I loved it ... We stayed in a room with a huge diversity of food, in that room we had a window where we could watch the whole session. We also could watch a movie or any other program, they were incredible. We can only thank the whole team, for all the attention for all the affection they had with both the parents and our daughter, I would like to thank for the opportunity.

I had the privilege of having @pinchofheavenphotography entered my life, in what was the most special sessions, the session of my Pregnancy! ❤️ I was surrendered with such sympathy, delicacy and sensitivity. When I got the final result, well... I couldn't believe it! The words will not make any justice to how I felt! ❤️

Once upon a time... in Sesimbra... in "Pinch of Heaven Photography", a long waited dream came true! My debut, my reunion, so much connection and a pure love. That's how it all happened to me. My story, my own self was "projected", in these pictures. I confess that I was afraid of not being able, of not being able to undo it, because my experience was none. I never liked seeing myself in the pictures. I didn't recognise myself in them. But with Pinch of Heaven Photography it was completely different! Upon arrival, small details made my eyes flicker and the emotion spoke louder!!! The charming space, with unique pieces, special and with a deep meaning. The feeling of being at home... comfortable, relaxed and fascinated, with the choice of makeup, the choice of clothing, the scenery, the colors, the sweets, the textures, the details, the aroma and with a TRUE FAMILY, which taught me to smile... to believe that I can also look beautiful in the photos, this wonderful team that you are. With all this, and more... beyond anything I could imagine... I saw and felt the «MAGIC», in every click, in every word, in every instruction, in every posing during my photo shoot, where my sister was the great star that shone that day. I can only say that I am VERY PROUD, PASSIONATE AND GRATEFUL for your LOVE.
