When to Schedule:
For most soon to be moms the perfect time for your maternity session seems to be somewhere between the 30 and 32-week mark. You might wonder why this time is preferred. It is the time where your belly is the perfect size but you are not swollen and puffy like you will be towards the final couple of weeks of your pregnancy. This is when you are feeling your best and are more comfortable.
What to Wear:
One of the most important decisions you will make regarding your maternity session is what you will wear. This will play a major role in how your feel during the session as well as the photographs once they are completed. My goal is to show off your beautiful baby body so some of the clothes you should pick should be more snug fitting. We do have several maternity gowns that you can chose from to use during your solo sessions. If you choose to do the maternity dress be sure to bring a strapless bra and boyshorts (preferably black or nude). The only thing that is important is that you feel the most comfortable, confident and beautiful as you can be.
What to Bring:
Pinterest is your friend. This is the green light to cyber stalk for ideas that you like and may want to duplicate or tweak a little. Some options include: baby shoes, letter blocks, pregnancy food cravings (shot with all your pregnancy snacks), baby’s room theme.
A Little Bit of Advice:
One of the pieces of advice that I give all of my moms to be is that you should pamper yourself before your session. What this means is that you should get your hair and nails done or even take a bubble bath to relax. This is something that will not take very long but it will help you to feel relaxed and wonderful! By simply feeling relaxed you will find that you will receive the best photographs your can. You will see in the photos how relaxed you were as well as comfortable and confident. The most thing to remember is that this should be a very special and fun day for you.

In order to maintain safety and health standards we do ask that all guests remain outside of the studio if not assisting with your session.
