Bump casting and newborn photography package


Bump casting is a wonderful way of documenting your pregnant tummy and has the added bonus of being able to use your resulting bump cast as a prop for your newborn session. The casting session takes around 45 minutes and your newborn photography shoot will be booked once baby has arrived. The package costs £145 and the cast is yours to keep forever.

 

Quite simply, I use plaster gauze bandages to take a cast of your beautiful baby bump.  The process only takes around 25 minutes and you will be able to sit back and relax with a nice cuppa on a comfy chair whilst I apply these plaster gauze strips to your bump. I need to apply roughly 3 layers building each layer so that when the plaster begins to dry the cast will retain the shape of your bump.

 

The process is not at all painful and will in no way harm your baby. The plaster does set slightly before I remove it but baby will still have plenty of room to wiggle and kick and about. A thin layer of petroleum jelly is used to ensure that the plaster does not stick to your skin and can easily be removed after about 15 minutes of drying. The cast is then left overnight to fully harden when I can then add new layers of the plaster gauze to strengthen the cast and refine the edges. The end result is a perfect cast of your bump that you can keep forever and parents always marvel at baby's newborn photography shoot that baby fits so neatly into your bump cast.
