what to expect – maternity

Maternity sessions are best done anytime after 30 weeks.  The session includes 20-30 minutes of time.  My focus of the session is to make you feel comfortable, beautiful and capture your natural pregnancy glow.  As a woman and mother, I understand the strong desire for your portraits to be as flattering as possible.

On-location maternity sessions will focus on natural surroundings.  Please do not wear anything with elastic on your belly for a few hours before your session if you want to capture your bare belly.  Watches and other jewlry can also leave unflattering marks on your skin and be distracting in your images.  Don’t forget about your feet!  Tight socks can leave marks too.  I would recommend something that fits you snugly to show off your shape, a button down shirt, tight fitting tank top, jeans that can be unbuttoned or a flattering dress.  You may bring more than one outfit as time allows.

Mini maternity sessions are available to clients who book a newborn session or first year plan.

Once you fill out the session agreement and pay the session fee your date is secured. As the session gets closer, a pre-session consultation will be set up. This can be done via chat, skype or phone. The goal of the consult is to answer all of your questions, discuss what products you are most interested in and discuss what to wear.
