Maternity sessions are a meaningful way to document your journey into motherhood. You and your growing child are beautiful. There’s a glow about you during pregnancy that can never be recreated. The light from within, the fact that your best friend is developing inside of you, all of that makes for some of the most beautiful images you could imagine. You shouldn’t let your discomfort stop you from getting maternity portraits. You may regret it if you don’t have those images to look back on in the years down the road.
When should I book and have my session?
We suggest booking your maternity session as soon as possible and having your session during your 7-8 month. This allows for a nice round belly with more comfort for you.
Where will the session be done?
We have studio options and many outdoor locations we are very familiar and recommend. At your consultation we discuss the style you desire and decide location.
What should I wear?
We offer a wide variety of maternity gowns to try on at your consultation. If you’d rather wear or bring your own outfit, we suggest something that showcases your baby bump. Empire dresses with belts under the bust and stretchy fabrics are some of our favorites. We suggest avoiding anything too loose.
What props should I bring?
During our initial consultation, we can discuss the props we have available and what you’d be interested in using during your session. We love it when parents bring meaningful items such as the sonogram picture, baby’s first shoes, or a small sign for sibling to hold.
The most popular option for our maternity sessions is adding this experience to our newborn session or Keepsake Collections baby program. This allows you to bundle sessions together for savings. To learn more about our newborn and baby programs, click here.
Additionally, we offer a maternity session A La Carte. This session is about 1 hour and includes a consultation to plan the session as well as an ordering appointment 10-14 days after the session to purchase your artwork.
The minimum purchase per session is $795, and our clients typically spend between $950 and $2500 per session on wall portraits and products.
