When is the best time for a maternity session?
I suggest anywhere from 30-36 weeks depending on how your feeling. As a mom of three I can say that the I felt comfortable earlier….the end stages of my pregnancies I honestly felt unpleasant to say the least.
I am not sure I should get maternity pictures done, as I am not feeling up for it.
I get it. I hear you and I have been there 3 times in my life. These portraits are to document a season in your life that will forever be changed once baby arrives. Its a BIG milestone for your family especially for your kids to look back on these images one day of their beautiful mom. Maternity sessions usually last less than one hour so its a small investment of your time I promise you.
What should I wear?
A maxi dress from free people! Well Ok it does not have to be from there but I do love their stuff for maternity sessions. There is nothing more feminine and pretty than a mom to be in a lovely flowing dress. If we are shooting your maternity in my studio I suggest white, cream, blush or something really light and bright. If we are shooting your session outdoors the same light color paltte is wonderful however rich textures and patterns in a dress can look amazing as well. I can help you find something you feel great.
Do you do intimate maternity?
Oh you want to show some skin do you? YES lets get down to it and plan a super special sessions that captures a little more skin than the average maternity session.
Can my husband and kids do the session with me?
Absolutely this is a special time for your growing family and they are encouraged to attend:)
