Baby Bump Maternity Session

The Pregnancy Stage of a Woman’s life is one of the fastest growing developmental times. You are growing a baby – yay you! I know it’s not always comfortable…the cramps, the bloating, the swelling…oh my not feeling so amazing?! It’s ok. My job as a photographer is to make you look and feel amazing for just about an hour. Then you can throw your legs up and eat chocolate the rest of the day!

The best time to schedule your pregnancy session is around 28-34 weeks, when the tummy is nice and round. This will vary with each women – and some women who carry small, or gain little weight may choose to wait until they are 36-38 weeks. You want to come when you feel good, have a nice belly but before the downward venture begins! Other women who are growing a bit more rapidly, may choose to come around 28-32 weeks. The idea is to come when you are nice and comfortable and have a nice round belly. It is best to schedule at least 1-2 weeks in advance. Our studio always leaves room for the expected Mama and new arrivals, so if you near the end of your term and need a session, just call our studio so we can get you in!

It is best to schedule 2-3 weeks in advance, however; I never turn anyone away! So if you waited until the last minute and you really need photos before you pop call me! You can choose from a studio, home or location session.

For my expecting clients I have a full wardrobe of various coverings, wraps and other outfits that you can choose from.  All portraits are respectfully photographed in good taste, and nudity is always optional and discreet. I will make sure that you are comfortable with the various poses and each session is tailored towards your individual needs.

{What to Wear Notes} Upon scheduling a session, we will discuss what to bring, such items can include jewelry, accessories, ultrasound photos, hats, scarfs, boy shorts and even cute boots! Many pregnant clients opt to go barefoot, while others may bring some choices.

For Men I suggest solid and simple clothing. I want them to be very comfortable as well. Little boys should be similar to Dad and both are welcome to bring light and dark shirts. Light patterns or textures are ok. And lastly, for little girls the options are plenty.

The idea is to create classic, simply portraits that will last a lifetime!
