Pregnancy is one the most beautiful times in a woman’s life and Maternity Pictures capture this time. Expecting mom’s don’t always feel beautiful, let’s face it, but once they see how amazing they look in their photographs, it’s a different story! Every portrait session is unique to the mother’s needs and comfort level. I encourage at home sessions because capturing this time in your own home will be cherished in years to come. It’s convenient and easy to make clothing changes, add baby props, and use the nursery for a background too.
How to prepare for Maternity Pictures
On the day of your photo session, pamper yourself. Do your nails, makeup, hair and moisturize every inch of your body. Put on some soothing music and treat yourself. I’m often asked, “What should I wear?” Cami tops, yoga pants, your partner’s oversized shirt, your prettiest maternity outfit, or nothing at all! It’s all been done. Because your session is an intimate experience, I make sure your images are password protected so only you can preview them. What about stretch marks? Every belly is perfect, once I work my magic! The best time to schedule your maternity pictures is about the beginning of your eighth month. That way your belly is big enough and you are not too close to going into labor.
