This is where the fun starts! (But really, it ‘s all pretty fun) Once you arrive at your session, it’s time for you to relax and enjoy spending time making memories with
your family. After all, we have already done all of the planning, so now you can just sit back and watch the magic happen.
If you have spent some time browsing and like what you see, then let’s chat! We will set up a free consultation over the phone, video call, or in studio to discuss your ideal photo session. You will have the opportunity to look through my collection of props, see sample photos and products, and look through my client closet. This is also when we will design your ideal photo session.
The day you pick up your products is always so exciting! Clients will come to the studio and we look through all of your items together to make sure you are more than happy with every piece you have received.
I try to provide as much information as possible on my website so that you can decide if I might be the right photographer for you. As you browse my website, you
may have further questions which I am happy to answer. Just send me a message here.
We will meet again when you get to see your images for the first time and pick out your favorites. You will also choose how you want them displayed. There are so many beautiful options to choose from, and I absolutely love watching the reactions that parents have when then see the final images. You will also make your selections at this time and place your order.
When we meet after your session to go over your gallery of choices, the images you view will be partially edited. This means the colors and brightness levels will be adjusted, horizons will be straightened, and composition will be set. Once you make your final selections I'll remove distractions from backgrounds, clean up skin and stray hairs, and add my own secret sauce of pop and polish. Sometimes I'm asked to do a little nip/tuck here and there or combine faces from multiple photos to get one photo where everyone looks just right. I'm happy to do these things as long as they're within the scope of my abilities. If a request is beyond what I'm able to do myself in a timely manner, I have a professional editor I can send it off to for an additional charge.
You can use your session fee towards a 1st Look session in the hospital or I can give you a full refund.
Usually 30-60 minutes. If the session is just mom or just parents it's typically quicker. If older siblings are participating it will be closer to the hour mark.
34-36 weeks seems to be the sweet spot. Moms have enough of a bump to look pregnant, but are still (relatively) comfortable.
Both. I have an in home studio that we can work in, but my preference for maternity sessions is on location. I love showcasing your bump with beautiful natural light and surroundings.
Absolutely. My maternity sessions are about so much more than just your bump. They're about your relationships and documenting what your life is like before this new person joins the family.
Whatever you feel comfortable and beautiful in! Prior to your session, we'll do a consultation to dig into your style. I'll make wardrobe suggestions based on your style, personality, and the chosen location. I have a selection of bump friendly dresses in my client closet that can be used at no cost. If you're looking for something more formal or just different than what I have I can recommend my favorite stores and rental sites. If you prefer to use something from your own closet I'll help make sure everyone's choices will photograph nicely together.
I do offer package discounts when multiple sessions are booked at the same time.
