Preparing for your Maternity Session

1. When should I get my photos done? Choosing the right timeframe for your maternity photos is very important. We want you to look very pregnant with a nice, round belly, but we don’t want you to be so pregnant that you are starting to feel uncomfortable. For this reason, I recommend getting your photos done during your 7th or 8th month of pregnancy.
2. What should I wear? During your pre-photoshoot consultation we wll discuss, colour schemes, styling, and the overall finished feel you want your images to have. I recommend wearing something that you feel beautiful in. Some choose a more relaxed style, others a more formal image. A solid, form fitting dress always looks great. Just be wary of wearing scarves, cardigans or busy patterns. We want to accentuate your belly, not hide it! I have maternity dresses available for you to use during your session. These special dresses are made especially for photography, and will look great in your photos. If you have questions about how to dress your family, please see instructions in our family prep section.
3. What should I bring? If you are planning on wearing some of my dresses or if you are interested in a few boudoir style photos during your session, bring a pair of black, white, & nude underwear and matching bras if you have them. Some clients choose to bring ultrasounds, shoes, or other special items for their session. You are welcomed to do that but don’t feel like you have to bring anything. This session is primarily to focus on you and your baby bump!
4. Questions? If you have any other questions before your session, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
