Maternity Portrait Sessions
It is a very special time. You are growing a little life in you. Your belly is always in your way and you are not feeling comfortable in your changing body but there is a purpose to all of that. You probably feel vulnerable and insecure but for around 30-60 minutes, I am going to capture your true beauty. You will look back to these images and be proud of what you achieved. Do it for you but also for your unborn child. Start creating your family story now. Of course every member of the family is welcome to join this session.
When to have a maternity session
I know you are eager but I advise to wait until you are between 33-36 weeks pregnant as your belly is perfectly round at this time.
Where to have the session
You tell me. I work anywhere you want me to be.* A field with natural foliage and beautiful light, the beach, an urban area or even your own home. I have several suggestions if you need them.
What to wear
I want you to be as comfortable as possible. You should wear clothing that is easy to move in and you feel good in. Clothing that fits snug to your body will look best as it will highlight your pregnant shape. Just keep in mind that you clothing should be free of any graphics or wording. I love the look of dresses and florals are the trend right now. Check out my current Pinterest board for styles that catch my eye. When looking at the images, look at the style of the clothing, how it fits around the belly, accessories, if there are any layers. Also look at the color of the clothing compared to the background of the image. Does the color pop from the background or blend with the environment. There is no better or wrong clothing color, just what you are drawn to more and your personal preference.
