Pregnancy is a time of big changes and a maternity photography session is a great way to capture a woman’s changing body while waiting for the arrival of your precious new baby.
A lot of women don’t feel great about their changing body, but these photos will bring you great joy in the years to come. They will be a reminder of the time that you were the closest with your baby.
I do my best to make sure that you look great in the photos, and that you feel relaxed and having fun while we are doing the photo shoot.
Maternity sessions should take place between 30-36 weeks of the pregnancy. The key is to schedule the session when your belly is nice and round and you are still feeling comfortable. If you are carrying small or have gained little weight during this time, you may want to wait and schedule the session between 34-36 weeks. If you are growing a bit more rapidly, I would suggest scheduling your session early, between 30-33 weeks.
What to wearer maternity photography session?
Please try to arrive a few minutes early to your session so we can discuss your wardrobe selections. One casual and one dressy outfit are recommended. Choose outfits that flatter your figure, show off your bump and are comfortable. Pre-pregnancy jeans (unbuttoned, of course) and a body hugging t-shirt are nice options. A clingy dress also looks great in photos as do opened sweater or button down shirts. Try to stay away from bold, busy patterns and really bright colors. Neutral and earth toned clothes are the best choices. Feel free to bring a variety of options and I will help you choose the most flattering selections.
Props also add a nice touch to your images so I strongly encourage you to bring them along. A few examples that are great to use are hats, baby shoes, sonogram pictures, etc.
Finally, don’t forget to include your spouse, children, and pets in your session in order to capture all of the joy your new baby brings to your family.
