With the snow outside today making driving out of the question, I figured it was a good day to stay inside, sit by the fireplace with a cup of coffee, and get caught up on sharing sessions.
First up is this gorgeous expecting mom who had her heart set on outdoor snow pictures and thankfully Mother Nature delivered! We were able to hop outside in the yard for a few quick pictures and then back in for the warmer portion!
Maternity sessions aren't something I do a lot of, but I wish I did more. I know many moms, like myself, didn't feel pretty or comfortable while pregnant, but I'm here to tell you that you are glowing! Pregnancy is such an amazing milestone to capture - your body is doing a miracle - it's growing a new life! The studio is filled with a variety of dresses for your use (all 4 of the dresses this mom is wearing are from the client closet here at the studio) and we can even arrange hair and make up to be done on site if you wish.
Considering getting maternity pictures done? Here are some frequently asked questions regarding sessions:
When should I have maternity pictures done?
Maternity pictures are best done between 30-35 weeks when a woman has a nice round belly, without feeling too uncomfortable yet. However, this date could be earlier for those expecting multiples or who are anticipating an early delivery.
When should I book my maternity session?
Please contact me at least three months ahead of time. I can occasionally accommodate a last minute session, but typically I book up at least a month in advance.
How long will the session last?
Maternity sessions can be done as simple 30 minute sessions in the studio or outdoors. If you want to do both indoor and outdoor, we can arrange a time, or times, to do both!
Where will my session take place?
Maternity sessions can take place indoors year-round as well as outdoors from March-November. Yes, snow pictures can be taken in the winter too!
When will my session take place?
Maternity sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday. Outdoor maternity sessions are scheduled ~1 hour before sunset, usually on Tuesdays, Fridays, and the occasional Saturday.
What should I wear?
I have a variety of different maternity dresses (pale blue, blush pink, white/cream, gray, black, navy, red, and champagne colored) for you to wear for your session. You will be able to see them in person when you come in for your pre-session consultation. However, if you choose to wear your own outfit or pose nude, that is fine too!
