To some, the idea of maternity photography is as exciting as the idea of having a baby itself. You are captivated by the glow and radiance that pregnancy has bestowed upon you. To others, it is a questionable one, as your body has transformed and you have become someone you hardly recognize.
However you may feel, if you do not take the images, you will not have them. And while it may be your first. or your third pregnancy, each will deliver you an experience (and a baby!) that is unique to this world. That deserves to be captured. If ever there is a time to entrust yourself to the hands of a professional photographer, it is during this time. Professional maternity photography is not the snap of an iphone, or a few shots taken on a whim in your kitchen. It is working with someone who understands that certain poses will photograph better than others, that lighting is key, and with a bit of guidance, you will look as amazing on the outside as you hopefully feel on the inside.
For your session, I will provide you with the option of shooting in a private location, such as your home or my studio, where you can bare as little or as much of your belly that you care to. You may also opt for a less intimate session and select an outdoor location that will provide a wonderful backdrop for the “before” pages in your Baby Book.
You are welcome to reserve your session any time after you have established your due date, but you will want to schedule a time between 30 and 36 weeks. At this time you are showing enough of a full belly, but not quite ready to deliver! Scheduling in the earlier weeks ensures that you will have a bit more mobility for poses.
And by all means, include any siblings (of the two or four-legged variety), as this is an exciting time for your entire family! I will capture both individual and family images to tell your entire story.
Regardless of which type of session you choose, I will walk you through exactly what to bring, what will look the best on camera, and how to prepare for your session. I also have a wide variety of beautiful maternity clothing and gowns, perfect for every body shape and every comfort level.
I would love to celebrate this amazing time with you, and create beautiful images that your family will love and cherish forever.
