You feel like the day that your bundle of joy arrives can’t get here soon enough, and then before you know it, your pregnancy experience is over. How will your family remember all of the miraculous little details? The glow of your skin, those fluttering kicks, the exciting emotions, and the endless belly kisses. A Maternity Portrait Session is the perfect way to capture the wonder of this unique time in a stunning, unforgettable way.
Maternity photography session
Maternity portraits are generally captured around 28-34 weeks when your belly is beautifully round and you’re still feeling comfortable for a variety of poses. Of course, maternity portraits may be captured up to the very last day of pregnancy, and I try my best to allow flexibility in my calendar for last-minute openings. With your glowing skin and lustrous hair, there’s no time more beautiful in a woman’s life. Timing can be different for everyone, so please be in touch as soon as possible to book your appointment.
I understand how to pose a pregnant woman in the most flattering ways, and I take time to carefully perfect each pose. I will gently guide you throughout your session to perfect all the little details, and make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed during your maternity session. If you have concerns about some areas you are not happy with, let me know and those will be addressed with fabrics, lighting, posing, or retouching.
My aim is to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible whether it be your first time having a professional portrait session or whether you are in front of the camera regularly. When you are at ease and feeling beautiful it will shine through in your images.
What to wear
I have a variety of wardrobe options in my studio, including fitted maternity gowns, lace robes, and silk fabrics to accentuate your curves.
These may be used in addition to, or instead of, items that you have in your own maternity wardrobe. Nudity or implied nudity is always a classic way to remember your pregnancy curves and is completely optional.
