WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR MATERNITY SESSION
When you arrive at the studio you’ll find a quiet and serene environment. Your session is a time of relaxing, reflecting and storytelling. The maternity session is the best way to capture the images of your beautiful round belly and the emotions and feelings you and your partner have for your baby. These moments are precious and every moment is carefully thought out to create and express the true and raw emotions between you and your baby.
SCHEDULING YOUR MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION
Maternity Sessions are best captured around 27-35 weeks. This is the time when women have a lovely full and round shape. It is also the perfect time when you will not feel uncomfortable and won’t be too bloated as in the very last weeks of your pregnancy. For mothers carrying multiples 25-29 weeks are recommended.
A maternity session is more than just a photo shoot. It is a day of well-deserved pampering. Pamper your self with manicure, hair blowout and professional makeup session. Soft natural, pastel colors always look great especially for the close-up shots of hands a belly.
ACCESSORIES AND JEWELRY
Having accessories that you feel might be fun to try is always a good idea. However, try to keep the jewelry to a minimum as they tend to be distracting for the photo viewers later. If you are in doubt, just bring them along. The worst thing that could happen is not to use them.
Some pregnant mothers choose to embrace their changing bodies and capture artistic nude or semi nude portraits while others opt for a more modest, fully clothed shots or outfits.
THINGS TO AVOID
- Try not to wear tight underwear on the day of your session. Arrive at your photo shoot in loose clothing to prevent body marks.
- Avoid too much makeup, dark eyeshadows and highlighting on the skin. Keep it more natural and clean.
Where will my session take place?
