The physically changes of this moment are small, compared to your growth of heart for someone you have yet to meet! The love and joy you feel for your unborn child and your partner are so strong when expecting, that it is often referred to as a glow….. I remember the excitement of waiting on new life and the changes it inspired. It is my joy to help you document the connection you have together as husband and wife and as the family you will be. Maternity photography is a unique way to also let your child see how anticipated and loved they were, even before they are born.
When to schedule your maternity session
Maternity Sessions are held from 28-34 weeks in your pregnancy. I love to capture you in a location that is special to you as a couple. If outdoors, we will arrange to meet 1.5 – 2 hours before sunset, when the angle of the sun is low enough to surrounding you with gorgeous light. In the studio I offer the soft ethereal backlighting or a dark background with a hint of light showcasing your baby bump. A studio session allows you to choose a more intimate wardrobe option if desired.
Preparing for your session
If the decision of what to wear is holding you back from capturing this special time, I would love to help you. I have a collection of maternity gowns, dresses and tops for you to choose from in the studio. I understand the change your body is going through and select the type of garments that will give you an elegance at this time. A free pre-consult appointment can be scheduled to try on the gowns for your session and this allows you to know exactly what accessories, under garments and makeup choices will create the look you want in your images
I’ll pose you to help you look your best
Who doesn’t want their image to show that unique love you have for each other. I enjoy working with couples to help you relax during your session. Through simple direction and taking the time to show you what will look best, you can then focus on each other. Also, adding in little bit of play, brings natural smiles and images filled with joy.
