Our maternity photography sessions are customized to reflect your personality and style. We strive to create a relaxed and comfortable experience, while capturing a variety of artistic portraits. With an eye for perfect moments and unique perspectives, we create maternity portraits that are beautiful, intimate, and emotional. Our expertise in artful lighting and retouching brings out the best in you maternity portraits. We love getting to know each of our clients, and creating one-of-a-kind maternity art that you will treasure forever.
Maternity Photography Sessions fill up quickly, and it is always best to contact us as soon as possible for an appointment. Maternity Photography is best captured around 32 to 37 weeks, when your belly is full and round, but can be scheduled all the way up until your due date. This timing can be different for everyone, so we encourage you to give us a call to discuss the details.
How long will our session last?
Maternity photography sessions generally last 1-1.5 hours. There is plenty of time for an outfit change, creative props, and some portraits together with Daddy-to-be. These sessions are delicate, and we patiently take the time to perfect each pose. Our gentle and detailed approach allows us to capture those stunning moments that become the most beautiful, meaningful portraits.
STUDIO or OUTDOORS?
Whether you prefer fine art maternity photography in the studio, or stylish lifestyle photos outdoors, there are endless possibilities for beautiful maternity art. Our studio is a warm and cozy environment with everything needed to capture those heirloom images. We also love photographing maternity portraits in the natural splendor of the outdoors. The vibrant colors and textures provide a stunning backdrop. Choosing a location that is special to your growing family is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to your images.
WHAT TO WEAR
Clothing is a key element for beautiful, timeless maternity photography. We recommend outfits that flatter your shape and accentuate your curves. An empire-waist gown. A long flowing skirt with a bandeaux bra. Add a beautiful cardigan with just one button closed above your bare belly. Have fun with accessories to add pops of bright color and dimension to your portraits. We love rich textures, simple patterns, jewelry, scarves, hats, headbands, and ruffles. If showing we recommend a nice pair of undergarments. Lace trim adds a beautiful touch to fine art maternity portraits.
Post-Processing & Ordering
Following your session, Chris selects the best images for processing and retouching. He devotes time to carefully compare the many of images from your session to select the best ones from each concept — based on facial expressions, posing, lighting, sharpness, and overall appeal. These 20-30 images (8 for Mini-Sessions) are each individually processed and enhanced into a true work of art.
Approximately 2-3 weeks following your session, we invite you into the studio for your proofing session. This presentation will be an emotional experience, after which you will be able to select the images you would like to order for your home, office, family and friends. Chris will consult you on options for displaying your child and family portraits in creative and beautiful ways. We are happy to accommodate you in the evenings and weekends for these appointments.
