Whether you are having a maternity session alone, as a family or just a couple, my goal main goal of your maternity session is to make you feel gorgeous. I like to take a lifestyle approach to creating your memories, no matter the location, either inside or outside.
Maternity sessions should be done when you are 32-36 weeks pregnant.
For inside/studio sessions I use a fresh, clean organic style to create timeless beautiful images. Clothing should be pastels and creams. I use textures such as lace and knits.
For outside locations, I’m a sunset junkie, so in the summer we will meet for the session after 6 PM, so we can soak up every last minute of the glorious golden light. In the winter, we will meet at around 3:30 pm. I do suggest more color and textures to be used. We may move around a lot to capture and utilize a variety of colors textures scenery and light. (Don’t forget the bug spray!)
If we are shooting in your home I will show up a little early and we will want to look everywhere to find the best late we may have to move furniture decorations etc. It is helpful if you tidy up before I arrive but the house certainly doesn’t have to be spotless.
I have a studio wardrobe you are more than welcome to use. I suggest that we plan and discuss your outfit. clothing is so very important!
The best advice I can give you is to make sure you’re well rested on the day of your photo session, eat something and stay well hydrated. Believe it or not, bad moods can show up in pictures. the better you feel, the better you’ll look.
