Black and White Maternity Session

Maternity Session Guide:

I hope this guide helps you create lasting memories and a beautiful maternity session experience.

When Should You Book Your Maternity Session:

I typically recommend my parents to be, to book their session between 32-36 weeks and between 28-32 weeks if you are having multiples. Your beautiful belly will be showing at this time.

What Should You Wear:

  • I recommend neutral tones, nothing with loud patterns or colors. The saying goes less is more! You want the attention on you and your little one that is growing, you don't want to take away or distract from that.
  • Long flowy dresses are beautiful, they highlight your baby bump.
  • I typically recommend 2 outfits for maternity sessions, this brings variety to your photos.

What Should Your Partner and Kids Wear:

  • If your spouse comes and if you have kids, I recommend taking a look at my outfit guide to help pick out clothes. Typically I recommend neutral tones and no loud patterns. But if you have any questions or unsure! I would love to help out! I've had some of my clients send photos of their outfits that they are thinking of, don't be afraid to send me photos of your outfits if you are unsure.

What To Bring To Your Session:

If you have ultrasound pictures, outfits or even little shoes! Bring them! Also if you have other kids or pets, please include them! Also if we are doing anything that involves water, I recommend packing extra towels and a change of clothes so you are comfortable after your session.

Extra Tips:

  • Apply lotion to your belly and skin, especially if you want belly spots! This will make your skin look glowy and of course help avoid dry skin!
  • Nude, black or white undergarments are best if you are looking for the beautiful images of you in your undergarments. I love the cozy cardigan look wrapped around with you belly popping out.
  • If we are doing anything that involves water, I recommend either purchasing water shoes for stability. Once you are in place and comfortable we can always take them off.
  • If you want extra pampering the day of, why not get your hair and makeup done! While you are at it treat yourself to a prenatal massage!
