We love capturing the glow of an expectant mother and we love to have fun with our maternity sessions! We strive to capture the personalities of the soon-to-be parents with fun & unique locations. When your child looks back on these photos years from now, show them how in love/happy/excited you were as you waited for him or her to arrive!
What should I wear?
Most importantly – wear something that you are comfortable in and that you feel like yourself in! Most of our clients bring about three different options: a white tank top and jeans (regular jeans unbuttoned look great) or yoga pants is always classic, a cute dress and a button up shirt are three options that provide lots of versatility. We have scarves and wraps that you can use or you are welcome to bring your own. Clothing for your maternity session should be tight fitting around the belly. Loose and baggy clothes will hide your belly – don’t hide it, be proud of it!! Keep your clothing choices simple – avoid busy patterns or stripes.
Where will the session take place?
Sessions can be done in a variety of locations – our favorite place to photograph maternity sessions is fun and unique locations outdoors! Great locations include parks, fields, farms, and urban downtown settings. We love to bring out your personality in a maternity session so are up for anything! If the weather doesn’t allow for an outdoor session, your home (if the nursery is ready) or our natural light studio are options as well.
When should I schedule my maternity session?
We find that most women look and feel their best in the 7th month of their pregnancy – you’ll have a nice round baby bump and will still be fairly comfortable compared to how you’ll feel in the 8th month (not to mention that “any day” feeling you’ll get past 36 weeks!) 6-8 weeks before your due date is ideal!
Can I include my husband or children in the session?
Absolutely and we recommend that you do! It’s will make your session that much more special having the most important people in your life in the images!
