Let’s Talk About Your Maternity Photography Session!
Congratulations! If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you are expecting a little one (or hoping to be expecting one soon) and are trying to find the best Maternity Photography services available!
Pregnancy is one of the few ‘big moments’ of our lives, a milestone that you are going to want to remember vividly.
Whether it’s your very first baby and you are filled with excitement and anticipation over the new adventure you are about to embark on; or it’s your last baby and you really want to document this fleeting time with portraits showing off your gorgeous, growing baby bump are the perfect way to preserve the memory of this important milestone.
Keep reading and I’ll tell you everything you need to know about hiring me and what to expect from a Maternity session.
Let's Get The Ball Rolling...
Where Do The Maternity Sessions Take Place?
Maternity sessions typically take place outdoors or a combination of outdoors & my private studio.
For actual locations, you can choose one or I can select one that I think will meet your specific needs.
I have amazing go-to locations in Bradford, Holland Landing and Newmarket that I’m sure you will fall in love with, too.
Can I Choose A Time That's Best For Me?
My outdoor Maternity sessions take place outddoors during the evenings and in my studio during the weekdays.
Depending on which you prefer, I’ll tell you my availability and you can choose from those times.
Please keep in mind that Maternity Portraits are best done between weeks 31 and 36 of your pregnancy.
We want to see that gorgeous, defined baby bump but we don’t want you to be so far along that you are too uncomfortable!
Get in touch with me and we can talk about it..
How Long Are The Sessions? How Much Time Should I Plan For?
The Maternity photography sessions are scheduled for 1 hour, which gives us plenty of time to set up, get comfortable and to get the best photos possible.
If you don’t mind arriving a few minutes early, I would say you can count on it being a little longer than an hour.
I’ll make it a fast but extremely enjoyable experience, trust me!
Can My Spouse & Children Be Involved In My Maternity Portraits?
This is completely up to you!
If you’d like to simply create some beautiful images to document your pregnancy & pamper yourself by utilizing one of my studio’s stunning gowns, you can opt for a Mama-Only session.
If you’d like to also include daddy-to-be and any siblings, I have an option for that as well!
When Should I Book My Maternity Session?
Depending on the season, my dates tend to fill up fast.
Ideally, you should book your Maternity Photography session at least a month before you’d like to be photographed.
I also want you to feel stunning in your choice of luxury gown, so I’d like to have you into the studio for a gown fitting a few weeks prior for you can select a gorgeous gown to wear at your session!
