A lot of photographers say that you should book your maternity session at a certain week in your pregnancy but I think the most important thing is that you book when you have a nice full, round belly but are still comfortable! Every pregnancy is different! Some don’t have a large baby belly until super late in pregnancy, some are have it early on. I would recommend booking your session 1-2 months in advance and then we can go from there depending on how you are progressing and feeling. We want to be able to show that you are definitely pregnant but not so close to your due date that you are uncomfortable. To book your maternity session, contact me through the ‘questions and booking’ tab and I will get in touch with you to discuss your session. Session fee must be paid in full to reserve your spot on my calendar. (Please note that this this is the session fee only. All prints and products are sold separately) Maternity sessions are only available with a booked newborn session.
During the spring/summer/fall months, I love outdoor sessions! If you have a location you would like to go to, I’m game! If not, I can recommend several places depending on the style of shoot you are looking for. If you’d rather have a studio session, (or if outdoor weather isn’t permitting) we can do that as well!
What to Wear
You may choose any outfits that you like! I recommend about 3 different outfits. Most importantly, choose something that makes you feel pretty! A long skirt that shows off your belly works nicely! I own a couple of maternity photography gowns (pictured below) that you are welcome to wear also! We will further discuss clothing options and what to bring at your phone consultation! You are also welcome to bring anything else you might like photographed as well…sonogram photos, baby’s name, baby shoes…anything you like! Daddy and siblings are welcome too!
