If you’re considering pregnancy portraits please contact the studio in your second trimester. We think the ideal time to shoot these sessions is between 28 and 34 weeks. Of course we can shoot later but the closer to your due date the more likely you are to feel more tired, retain a little water and develop the “pregnancy mask” so for your comfort we recommend shooting earlier. The studio books 3-4 weeks ahead so callow email to reserve your session early. We mainly shoot in the studio where we can control the lighting and backdrop and not be at the mercy of our northern climate, but can always arrange an outdoor session at a private location of your choosing. We offer two options for studio sessions: one in our regular studio, offering controlled lighting and several backgrounds and outfits; and the second in our natural light boudoir studio offering a more relaxed and “life-style” feel to your session.
We also offer a mini maternity session which is designed for a mother and her toddler/older child. These are just 30 minutes, with one background and one outfit and concentrates on the beautiful connection between mother and her older child just before the new addition to the family.
Once you’ve reserved your session we’ll send you a full preparation package which will tell you how best to prepare for your session. We recommend a few images in your regular cloths which we’ll give you recommendations on. After that we have many specially designed dresses, wraps and cover-ups for you to use throughout the rest of the session based on your style, taste and comfort level. We will also advise you on your hair and make-up for the best results.
Arrive at your arrange time with the clothing choices we’ve recommended to you and your partner. Apply make-up as we’ve advised or have a professional apply it for you for best results.
The session can run to around 2 hours depending on how many outfits and set’s we’ve decided on.
