When do Maternity sessions take place?
Pregnancy sessions are best when the belly is nice and round and mummy is feeling well. This can be anywhere from 32-36 weeks; however it can be done safely up to 38 weeks.
When should I book my Maternity session?
I schedule my sessions 6+ weeks out, depending on availability. Contact me as soon as you know you’d like to book in so that you have the most variety in dates available.
How long does the session last?
The session usually lasts 1 hour this is plenty of time to create a beautiful selection of images with a wide variety of poses.
Where will my Maternity session take place?
Maternity sessions take place in my Natural light home studio which has been designed to give you the home from home experience so that you can relax and enjoy your session.
Can siblings and Partners be in a few images?
Yes of coarse I love to capture images of couples bonding with their unborn child and the connection siblings have with the bump. If you are wanting this then please discuss with me before your session.
What should we wear?
Simple is best. I have lots of fabric and gowns in my studio for you to wear throughout your session so all you really need is black and nude underwear but if you have anything you would like to wear e.g. special dress or underwear then please bring these with you and I can talk you through the best options. For family photos I recommend that your family wear clothing that coordinates without matching exactly. Children should wear clothing they like and are comfortable in, although it is best to avoid busy patterns and logos.
How many proofs will I get to choose from?
I fully edit up to 30 images from your session so you have a beautiful collection of a variety of different poses to choose from. Your gallery will be online for you to view usually within 2 weeks of your session, unless you have chosen the Bump 2 Baby package and then we will proof all your images together after your Newborn session so you can make your decisions with the full gallery.
How long does the Online Gallery stay on your website?
Your gallery will be online for 1 week giving you plenty of time to choose on your desired collection or individual products. plus feel free to give your friends and family the login details so they can choose what they would like too. If you would like to come back in to discuss the options and see the products again then please ask as we are more than happy to do this for you.
Once you book we will send you a full detailed information guide with everything you need to know about the session but if you have more questions please ask as we are here to help as much as possible.
