Maternity Photoshoots and What to Expect

What to expect during my maternity photography session?

Great results from being prepared BEFORE your pregnancy portrait session

This is a loaded question.  As legitimate as it is, if you don’t know what to expect AT your session, your photographer has not done their job well.  This kind of photo session is so important, they should have told you everything that will happen way in advance of the session.

In my studio, when mom calls to find out about our process for maternity portraits, we start asking the questions that let us know what’s most important to her!  Every lady is different, with unique expectations so we ask a lot of questions.  Then we decide how best to move forward.

When would you like to have your maternity photos made?  Will your partner and/or kids be joining you?  Do you have a special outfit or will you pick something from our wardrobe?  What’s your favorite color?  I want to know the details that will help create an amazing, unforgettable portrait experience for you.

We’ll chat about every detail.  From the time of day best for you to the way you’ll be keeping these cherished memories; in a keepsake album or portraits for the wall.  Most of the details will be about your session, however; how long it will take, what outfits you’ll wear and who will be at the session with you.

So your maternity portrait session should go as smooth as silk, and you should know exactly what will happen.

This picture is about 30 years old but it brings me back every time I look at it. THAT’s why I’m a photographer: To help people REMEMBER all of the good things in their Life!
