Schedule Your Session
What is the point of a maternity photography session?
A maternity photography session is a professional photoshoot designed to capture the beauty and excitement of pregnancy, showcasing the expecting mother’s journey and creating lasting memories.
When is the best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot?
The best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot is usually towards the beginning of your second trimester, between 30 to 34 weeks of pregnancy when the baby bump is well-defined but the mother is still comfortable.
How long does a maternity session typically last?
Maternity photography sessions usually last anywhere from a quick 30 minute shoot, to 1 or 2 hours, allowing time for outfit changes and different poses.
Can I include my partner and other children in the photoshoot?
Absolutely! Including your partner and other children in the photos can add a personal and meaningful touch to the session.
What should I wear for my maternity session?
Choose outfits that highlight your baby bump, such as fitted dresses or flowing gowns (we have a full closet for you to choose from). Solid colors and soft fabrics often work well, but feel free to bring multiple outfits to change into. After you sign up for your session we will also send you a maternity shoot style guide to help you make your deicsion.
Can I choose the location for my maternity session?
Yes, you can! We offer both studio and outdoor options. Discuss your preferences with us when you book to decide the best location for your vision.
How do I prepare for a maternity photoshoot?
Adequate rest, hydration, and choosing outfits in advance are important. Discuss any specific poses or ideas or send examples before your session
What happens if the weather is bad for an outdoor shoot?
In case of inclement weather, we can look at rescheduling options or move to our portrait studio with plenty of backdrop options and perfect lighting for your vision.
Can I bring props or accessories to the photoshoot?
Absolutely! Bringing meaningful props or accessories, like ultrasound images, baby shoes, or a favorite blanket, can make the session even more special.
How soon will I receive my maternity photos?
We will send you a proofing gallery within 2 weeks. Once you choose your final images, we will completely edit them and get prints ordered within 2 weeks of receiving the order.
Do you offer maternity photography packages?
YES! Collections start at $390 (30 minute session only), which is what is due prior to the session. $100 is the sitting fee to reserve your session. Once you receive your gallery you can choose any package and pay the difference then.
Digital collections start at $390 (for 30 minute sessions) with 6 digitals and go up to $990 for the full gallery. Average amount spent for professional portraits – wall art, albums or prints and services is between $600-1500.
