One of my favorite maternity sessions! It was such a pleasure shooting Nadia and Kevin at this exciting time in their lives. Although some poses could cause a challenge at this stage in the pregnancy, Nadia was a trooper and we got some amazing shots!
For couple's interested in booking a Maternity session, here are some FAQ's:
Q: When is it best to have the session?
A: It is best to have the session at 7 months, so that the belly is round enough for photos but also not large enough to cause discomfort in different poses.
Q: How soon should I schedule my session?
A: It’s never too early to schedule your maternity session. Sometimes we can accommodate last minute requests, but we recommend a 4-6 week notice. If you would like a weekend appointment it is important to book early as Saturdays and Sundays are book quickly.
Q: Can my spouse or my child be in the pictures?
A: Of course! Having the whole family involved is encouraged.
Q: What should I bring/how do I prepare for the session?
A: These are only meant to be a helpful guide, feel free to do as many or as little as you would like:
*Try not to wear tight underwear and clothing on the day of the session to prevent marks on your skin.
*Get a manicure a few days in advance.
*A nude tube top/bra is very useful and handy to have.
* Anything else you think is sentimental or has a special meaning to you and as a family i.e matching sports uniforms.
Q: Will you guide me and help me pose?
A: Absolutely! I know you don't do this everyday. I want this to be as comfortable and pleasant an experience as possible. I will help you every step of the way.
Q: What type of editing is included?
A: All of the images from the session have basic editing which includes: white balance, color correction, cropping, and overall stylizing. The 10 images of your choice will include skin retouching, body enhancements, and any other requests you may have.
