BECAUSE. Nine months seems like such a long time when you are pregnant.
But you will look back on it, and it will have flown by. Celebrate being pregnant! Maternity sessions are so much fun and I love making expectant moms feel beautiful about their bodies during this miraculous time in their lives.
The best time for maternity pictures is 30-36 weeks. Typically this is when your baby bump is showing but you are not too uncomfortable. With that being said, you can be photographed up until your due date. After 36 weeks however, you may find it harder to move and get around and you are usually much more tired.
Your wardrobe is important! Your baby bump will be the main focus of the pictures, so we want to show off that bump! Of course, how you show off that bump is up to you. I want you to be comfortable, so if a bare belly is too much, that's okay. Want to bare that belly, go for it! I have a large selection of beautiful, high-end maternity gowns for you to choose from to use during your session, or I can suggest outfits for you to bring from home. We will discuss all of the fun fashion information in our pre-consultation.
Although the primary focus at the session will be you and your beautiful bump, Dad's are of course included in our maternity sessions. If there is a sibling, we encourage that they be included too!
The Maternity Session fee is $150 (plus tax) if doing maternity alone and is due at time of booking in order to reserve your session date. Please inquire about special pricing for Maternity and Newborn package options.
