Maternity Photo Sessions: What to Expect

Maternity sessions are a great way to remember this special and significant time in your family’s lives. I recommend they be done around the 7th or 8th month of your pregnancy. I encourage your spouse or children to take part in your maternity session. Even pets can join in!

Before your shoot

As with all my sessions, I begin with a detailed consultation, where we will discuss the style and direction of the shoot. Once we’ve hammered out all the details, we will schedule a date and time for shoot.

What to wear

Some mothers wear outfits that expose their belly, while others prefer not to. Both ways can produce beautiful mementos of this exciting time – it’s completely up to you!

Stretch marks, poses, and more

If you’re concerned about stretch marks or blemishes, don’t worry. I include photo retouching in all my shoots. I work with each new mother and pose them in ways that ensure they’re comfortable and beautiful. During the consultation, we can decide whether you’d like to shoot in-studio or out in nature.
