maternity

This truly is a miraculous time so document and celebrate your transition to motherhood with a tasteful and beautiful maternity session. Years from now your child will look back at these photos and know how excited you were for him or her to be a part of your family.


WHEN TO SCHEDULE

The best time for a maternity photo session is at 7 - 8 months of pregnancy. I personally believe the bigger the better; but of course you still need to be comfortable to sit or lay on the floor. (Don’t worry; I’ll help you back up!) All pregnant ladies are different and so you will know at what stage you will be most comfortable. In addition to your individual portraits, you may want to include images of you with your partner and/or your children as this is an exciting time for your entire family!


MOMS TO BE

During pregnancy, a woman is at her most beautiful – though with the changes your body has been going through, we realize you might not feel that way. Before your photo session, consider treating yourself to a professional hair and makeup appointment. Giving yourself that extra bit of pampering will make you feel stunning, and that confidence will come through in your photos. You might even wish to schedule a prenatal massage before your photo shoot to give yourself that extra glow.

Clothing should be tight fitting around your belly to accentuate your beautiful shape. Try to avoid stripes or busy patterns as they detract from the focus of your bump. Wear something comfortable and you can move freely in.
