Pregnancy is an amazing time and there is no better way to celebrate it than with a portrait session!
To get the most out of your session however, there are a few things you should know.
When is the best time to come in for a maternity session?
It really just depends on how big you would like your baby bump to be in your photos. I recommend, any time between 29 weeks to 36 weeks.
Just don’t wait too long, you’d hate to go into labor and miss your shoot. And yes, this happens!
Try to avoid wearing anything that will leave a mark
When we’re pregnant, our bodies retain a lot of extra fluid which means things like elastic waistbands, socks and elastic hair bands worn around your wrist will leave a mark on your skin. We want you skin to look as smooth as possible, so avoid anything elastic!
The tighter the better
Loose maternity clothing is super comfortable, but doesn’t always look great in photos. When it come to your maternity portraits, remember, the tighter the clothes, the better! We want to show off that belly!
Don’t be afraid to show some skin
Nude and semi nude maternity images are often my favorite! I have all the fabric we need for draping and will always photograph you in a tasteful and beautiful way! So take advantage of the studio setting, and show a little skin!
Husbands, partners, kids and wives…. The more the merrier
I’m often ask if other family members can be in some of the photos and the answer is YES! These are your portraits and your moment to celebrate this amazing time in your life. So you can include anyone you would like to in your photos!
