Just love the calm waves with a beautiful sunset for this beautiful Momma! Such a sweet family with their little guy. He will soon have a little brother to love on. Cant wait to meet him this May!
When should I schedule maternity photos?
As a general rule of thumb, I like to schedule your maternity session shortly after you’ve told friends and family the exciting news! This will give us plenty of time to find a great day that works well for both of us. Maternity photos are typically taken when you’re showing — generally around 28-34 weeks into your pregnancy.
How many outfits should I bring to my maternity session?
One to two outfits for your maternity session is a good number to bring if you are choosing items from home. I do have a client closet where can choose from a variety of styles. I like to always have at least two for variety’s sake, but whether you want to wear more than that is up to you. I always recommend bringing a backup outfit or two just in case you’re not “feeling” the outfit you’d planned to wear.
What should I consider when planning maternity outfits?
My biggest piece of advice is to wear something you feel both comfortable and beautiful in. My second piece of advice is for you to choose an outfit form-fitting enough to showcase your baby bump. Lastly, wear a supportive, well-fitting bra. Between us ladies, I know that breasts change a lot during pregnancy, so pick up a new bra that fits immaculately before our session to avoid discomfort and any lumps or bumps!
Where do we take the photographs?
Where we take photographs depends on the type of session we’re shooting. For maternity, I like to do on-location, outdoor photographs that let us maximize our access to natural light. This can be in a beautiful pasture, at the beach, or in the woods.
Can my partner or child be in the photographs, too?
Of course! I love incorporating mom, dad and your other children into our session photos. While in most cases you and dad will be the stars of the day, I believe it’s so important to have several photographs with the entire family.
