I receive lot of emails daily that tend to ask me a lot of the same questions about Maternity photography. I sure don’t mind!… but I think you may find it helpful to be able to browse my most MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY FAQs from past clients.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME IN MY PREGNANCY TO SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Maternity sessions are typically done between 28 to 36 weeks. This is a time frame where your beautiful belly is of ample size yet you’re not as “puffy” and uncomfortable. Please keep in mind that past 36 weeks is not ideal for most mothers as a photo session is an activity that requires walking and being under the sun.
HOW SOON SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?
It’s never too early to schedule your maternity session. Sometimes I can accommodate last minute requests, but I recommend a 2-3 week notice to be on safer side.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST?
Sessions typically last 2 hours…3 hours if we really need a little extra time. Believe me, the time will fly by so fast.
WHAT SHOULD I WARE FOR THE MATERNITY SESSION?
Flowy maxi dresses & Form fitting dresses are great. A snug fitting tank top with a low riding yoga skirt can be a great look to show off your beautiful bump.
Keep clothing selections for maternity portraits simple. Stripes and busy patterns can hide the stomach or detract attention away from it. Instead, stick with solid colors.
CAN I INCLUDE MY HUSBAND AND CHILDREN IN THE SESSION?
Yes! I really recommend having some photos that include your family. It’s always important to capture that very amazing moment of your life with the most special people.
DO I GET TO CHOOSE WHICH PHOTOS WILL BE IN MY GALLERY?
After the shoot, we will have a final shortlisting session with you over skype where i walk you through the photographs. From the list you can pick what you like the most for which the processing will be done and delivered. And only those processed photos will be in the gallery.
WHEN CAN I GET MY PHOTOS?
Approximately 3-4 weeks after your session. I will email you a link to a private online gallery which you can feel free to share with family and friends. And also a link to download high resolution photos will be sent separately.
