When should I schedule my maternity session?
Maternity sessions are somewhat flexible depending on how you feel. Emily loves shooting these sessions and wants you to feel as happy and comfortable as possible… which may mean scheduling 4-6 weeks before your due date. Please call the studio to discuss scheduling options.
Where will my maternity session be?
We prefer to shoot your maternity session in the comfort of your home. We can work with your existing lighting and furniture to document your preparations for the new arrival in your life while making your maternity portraits. We bring portable black and white backdrops and lighting for a “studio” look to give you flexibility in portrait styles; if you greatly prefer one style over another, please let us know and we will adjust the session accordingly.
What should we wear?
That depends! Maternity sessions can range from fully clothed to partially clothed to beautiful nudes, all with or without your spouse. We are very flexible; please let us know what your comfort level is and we will work within those guidelines. We can do all of the above or just one, but we recommend trying a variety of styles to maximize the options you have in your final images. Classic clothing without logos or patterns tends to work best; you don’t have to be wearing matching clothing, but coordinating your colors will help the images be more about you rather than your clothes.
How do we order our images?
1-3 weeks after your session we will email you a link to your private online proofing gallery. All of our custom prints, albums, books, wall art and customized cards are available for purchase online. If you prefer, we can set up a purchasing appointment for you to view the images with our guidance in person.
