What is the booking process for a photo session?
You will first fill out an Inquiry Form
How far along should I be in my pregnancy when I decide to have my maternity photo session?
For a gender reveal photo session, it is recommended that you be in your 2nd trimester.
For a general maternity portrait in which you want to showcase your larger belly, it is recommended that you have your photo session in your 3rd trimester. Prior to your 30th-36th week of pregnancy is best, just in case your little one wants to make an early appearance!
What do I wear?
You want to be comfortable and you want to reflect your personal style. Here are a few suggestions.
Long, flowy dresses, gowns and fabrics can make for an angelic, royal, or feminine look.
You could wear a plain top and jeans for a more casual look.
View my Pinterest board, Maternity Look Inspiration for style ideas.
What do I bring to my photo session?
Please arrive with your make-up completely done already. You should be in your first outfit when you arrive, as well. If you plan to change at the shoot location (please inquire on whether there is a nearby location to change), please arrive as early as it takes for you to prepare prior to the scheduled shoot time.
Who provides the outfit?
You will arrive to the photo session with your own clothing.
If you have an active booking and would like style advice and suggestions prior to your session, please feel free to contact me via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Can I bring help?
If you plan to have more than 1 outfit, you are free to bring a stylist or other guest who can assist you with changing your wardrobe. Your guest must not disrupt or interfere with the photographer’s workflow.
Should I be the only one in my photos?
Essentially, it is up to you if you want your whole session to be solo portraits. You also have the option of taking a portrait with your significant other.
If you have children or a large family that you’d like to be included in the portrait, you may expect an additional cost.
