We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you during this special time in your life. To ensure a smooth and enjoyable maternity photography session, here's some essential information and tips:
Arrival and Payment:
- Please arrive on time and ready to start your maternity photoshoot.
- If you haven't paid yet, have your payment ready when you arrive. We accept cash and e-transfers.
Clothing and Styling:
- Choose fashionable yet comfortable clothing options for your maternity photoshoot. Consider the location of your session.
- For partner shots, coordinate clothing and colors without being overly matchy.
- Depending on your chosen session length, we may accommodate an outfit change.
- If you need ideas for where to purchase maternity dresses, consider options like Chicaboo and Amazon or rental places like Sugar Bump Gown Rentals.
- Hydration is crucial! Start drinking plenty of water at least a week before your shoot to reduce inflammation and promote clear complexion.
- If you have something specific you'd like to include in your session, bring it along and let us know. We're happy to incorporate meaningful items. Use one large bag to carry any props or personal items.
If You Have Little Ones:
- If you're bringing young children, bring water and a snack. Consider bringing a treat for positive reinforcement (we're not above bribing for good behavior!).
- Avoid bringing toys you don't want in the photos, as kids may be reluctant to let go of them.
During the Session:
- Our photography style is fairly organic. We'll start with a few test shots to help you get comfortable with the camera and for us to adjust settings.
- We'll also ask how much skin you're comfortable showing in the photos. Whether you want to proudly display stretch marks or prefer to stay fully covered, your decision will be respected.
- If you're interested in a full nude maternity shoot, please let us know in advance as it may require studio time.
- Our main goal is for you to enjoy the session and have fun. We aim to capture both posed and candid shots that reflect your unique beauty and the joy of this special time.
After the Session:
- Expect a sneak peek of 3-5 images within 2-3 days after our shoot.
- The remaining photos will be available within 2 weeks and will be delivered to you in an online gallery.
We can't wait for our maternity session and the opportunity to capture these beautiful moments. See you soon!
