Maternity

Congratulations, you’re having a baby! A maternity photoshoot is a wonderful way to capture this special milestone in your life. Your body is going through a lot of changes and a maternity shoot is one way to appreciate the changes and the life growing within you. This is a very intimate time, and I’m here to capture memories for you.

As you are looking for a photographer, I suspect you have seen a lot of maternity photos and noticed a wide range of styles, and looks. Everything I shoot has the intention of being wall art appropriate for the anticipated audience, thus your personal creativity and expectations are the primary driving force, my job will be offer suggestions and to refine the poses.

Your session is created around what you are comfortable with. When deciding on poses let your imagination go wild, this is about you. In studio poses are where most of the creativity and personal style come into play. Typically I like to plan on about 3 hours in studio, that gives you time to take brakes, and the option to work with several looks. This can include couples, sibling groups, multi-generation, solo, and silhouettes; the list goes on and on. Just about anything is possible, just no milk baths. Also if you want to chronical the babies development throughout your pregnancy, you can add progression sessions.

Notes:

Not sure if a maternity shoot is for you, ask about a TFP session.

Considering a ‘Prime Time’ session, take into consideration many mothers-to-be are not comfortable posing in the 9th month; you are your best judge.

Partners and children are welcome to participate.

Nudity is a personal option; it is not required and totally up to your discretion. Your privacy, safety, and comfort are of upmost importance.

Silhouettes: avoid wearing anything that causes unnatural lines.

Birth photography: If you want an experienced birth photographer, I can refer one.


Special Considerations:

Due to the nature of life, all maternity packages have a Loss of Life refund policy: If the child does not survive through birth; any unused deposit, and print credit, will be refunded.

In case of Due-date miscalculation or early birth, Unused Pre-Birth Sessions will be refunded.


Progression Sessions

A monthly, or weekly, pre-birth mini-shoot. The mother-to-be will pose in a similar fashion each session with outfits worn preferably being identical. The series of images are joined into one image showing the ‘baby bump’ through all its stages. This is typically combined with a newborn shoot to complete the series.

- Be prepared to re-produce a ‘look’ for each session. Similar hair, similar make-up, etc.

- Keep in mind if you wear something month 4, will it fit in months 7 or 8, or can you find a duplicate in a different size?

- This series does not necessarily need to start in month 1 but should cover at least  months 6, 7, 8, and either 5 or 9

Additional time $150/hr
