TIPS FOR PLANNING YOUR MATERNITY SESSION
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION ?
For most women, I recommend the session be between 32 and 36 weeks. I want to be sure your baby belly is really showing, but not wait until the very end when most women are uncomfortable. Many times babies arrive earlier than your due date so I don’t want to miss the chance of photographing you at this beautiful stage in your life.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING FOR MY MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
I recommend a solid colour button up shirt, a long sleave button up cardigan or sweater, a bandeau top or a strapless bra, your pre-pregnancy jeans, a pretty dress and any other outfit you feel confident in. I also recommend you bring any items that will have special meaning for the baby – a teddy bear or baby shoes for instance.
HOW LONG DOES THE MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION TAKE?
Most sessions are right about an hour. I capture a variety of images of mom alone and encourage dad to come along for a greater variety and showcase both happy parents-to-be.
WHAT IF I HAVE A BLEMISH OR STRETCH MARKS ?
Blemishes, minor stretch marks, bruises and scratches should not be cause for worry. I retouch all of your images before you ever see them and these imperfections are not a problem.
