Maternity sessions are a special time to document that sweet belly of yours, and include those closest to you. Below are some tips to help you prepare for your session!
It's best to schedule your maternity session between 32 and 36 weeks. Make sure that cute little bump is showing! Sessions usually last around 45 minutes to one hour.
Location is up to you! I encourage choosing a place that you feel comfortable in. If you need a list of suggestions, I can provide them.
You are welcome to bring and include any of your family to the session. I will be sure to make big sister or brother feel special and included.
When you arrive I will be asking what you would like done. That doesn't mean you have to have pose ideas ready- that's my job! Just a style and combinations for me to go off of (ie: whole family, just mamma, reserved, bare belly, props, no props).
If trying to stay under one hour, 1-2 outfits is best. I suggest form fitted dresses or flowy gowns (I have two that I let clients borrow!). Wear something you feel comfortable in. Maybe go buy something new so it's special!
Feel free but don't feel obligated to bring items you want included in your session. Example items would be a ribbon, shoes, a onesie or a sign.
Following your session, you will receive your image gallery within two weeks. I may pick my favorites or you may get to select them yourself depending on how many poses we get in.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer and find great joy in capturing the main milestones of a person’s life. My goal is to help keep you be comfortable, be beautiful and be you.
