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.

MAKEUP/HAIR/NAILS

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.

WARDROBE

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.

useful tips to prepare for the session

It’s important that you select a day of the week that you and your husband or partner are not having many other events or appointments. Having to rush between events or feeling stressed from a busy day, impacts you negatively and it does show in the final photos. Therefore is very important not to rush to the session but have plenty of time to prepare and tune into the moment. We recommend to select a day when your husband, partner or kids are most likely to be well rested and feel relaxed. Being well hydrated and eat light snack before the session would also give you plenty of energy during the time we will spend in the studio or outdoors.

Where will my session take place?

The maternity portrait sessions usually take place in our studio or outdoors. The location depends on the weather conditions and how comfortable you are with your body and being in public. For more intimate session, we recommend our indoor studio as this gives you privacy, acclimated environments and controlled lighting conditions. Our studio is also equipped with various props, professional lighting, supplies and all resources necessary to capture stunning pregnancy portraits.
