You are glowing, Mama!
This is such an exciting time for you! Whether it is your first baby or not, you are anxiously awaiting a very special delivery and we'd love to help you document this special time in your life with a maternity photography session. We strive to make you feel beautiful and take full advantage of that pregnancy glow! We have a light-filled indoor studio, but when the weather is nice, we really love to get outdoors. We have seasonal landscaping at the studio and also have some favorite nearby locations where we often take outdoor photos. We will ask you some questions to help us understand what your goals are for your images and tailor our plans around your goals to be sure you get images you love. We always include both parents and siblings who come to the session in these extra special images.
When should I schedule my maternity session?
We want to be sure we wait as long as we can so we can see your belly because that's what this session is all about! We try to schedule Maternity sessions around the 34-36 week mark, depending on each individual mama and how her body is changing with the baby's growth. Be sure to reach out to us early if you plan to schedule a maternity session so that we can reserve time on our schedule for you.
How should I prepare? Do you have any tips or clothing suggestions?
We've included some of our favorite images in the gallery on this page so feel free to take some cues from the clothing you see in those photos. We also have a Pinterest board where we have saved lots of helpful information. You can find it here. There are boards that are specific to different kinds of sessions as well as just some helpful tips and pointers. You are always welcome to reach out to run outfit choices by us or ask for suggestions if you need help.
What happens after the session?
You go home and relax and get ready for your special arrival! When you come for your session, we will give you a folder with some great information to help you be prepared to make decisions at the ordering appointment, which is usually scheduled within two weeks of the session. At that appointment, you will see the images Lisa carefully selected from those she captured during your child's photography session, choose your favorites and place your order. We have many options for creating wonderful art with your favorite images. We can even superimpose your images on your walls using pictures you send to us before the ordering appointment. This allows you to see how they will look on your walls at different sizes so you can be confident in your decisions. It's really helpful to know exactly where your beautiful portraits will go when you get them home.
