Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Between 4-8 weeks prior to your due date is best, but any time that works for you should be just fine.
DO YOU DO AT HOME OR OUTDOOR SESSIONS AS WELL AS STUDIO SESSIONS?
Yes! And my exclusive dress and outfit collection is available for your use for those sessions as well.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
If possible, please bring the following items:
- Nude or black thong underwear (loose fitting is best) depending on skin tone
- A black and a white pretty bra and underwear set
- Bandeau bra (any color)
- White and black boy shorts underwear
- Makeup to touch yourself up if needed (and a red lipstick if you plan on choosing our red dress!)
HOW SHOULD I DO MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
I always recommend you do your hair and makeup like you were going out for a nice dinner. Don't do anything much different than you normally do. And be sure to have your makeup and hair ready to go on arrival...your session time is for the photoshoot only and any extra time taken do apply makeup and style hair will cut into your session time.
HELP! I/WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE, WHAT DO WE DO?
No need to worry! I will professionally direct and pose you, your partner and family from head to toe to make sure you look your very best.
CAN MY PARTNER/OTHER CHILDREN TAKE PHOTOS WITH ME?
Yes! You can have whomever you like in your session.
DO YOU HAVE OUTFITS FOR ME OR DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN?
I have over 25 different dresses an looks for you to use, and feel free to bring your own if you'd like. A typically full session can include up to 5 of your favorite looks while a mini maternity session is your two favorite looks. I also have a selection of dresses and outfits for toddlers and children ages 6 months to 6 years.
WHAT SHOULD MY PARTNER WEAR?
Mens white t-shirts or dress shirts, black t-shirts or dress shirts and jeans, slacks or khakis work best. You can choose to color coordinate your family if you'd like, but keep in mind that loud colors or bold prints tend to be distracting to the eye.
I HAVE STRETCH MARKS/ACNE/DARK BELLY LINES, ETC. CAN THEY BE REMOVED?
Yes. As part of your session fee, general retouching of your images is included will greatly reduce if not completely remove anything noticeable.
WHEN CAN I SEE MY FINAL IMAGES?
Your final edited image set will be done about a week and a half after your session. At the end of your maternity session you will make an Ordering Appointment to come view them and select the images and items you want for purchase. If you need your images faster (for display at a baby shower, etc.), rush processing is available.
