Welcome to our maternity photography portfolio. Our experienced maternity specialists capture motherhood from its earliest stages. We photograph maternity shoots in natural environments such as the beach, in-studio, or in the comfort of your home. Many styles of prints and albums are also available.
Why Do Maternity Photography?
Even thought it may seem like it, maternity doesn't last forever. In a few months, your baby will be born, and you will be busy with the ages and stages of life. Why not preserve your pregnancy with a photo shoot? Many women feel that this is the time they are most radiant and natural, and are ready to be photographed as such. A maternity photo session provides the opportunity to capture you in a relaxed and comfortable setting. When you look back on your pregnancy, some of your strongest memories will likely be your maternity session!
When Should The Maternity Photo Shoot Occur?
Your maternity photography can occur at any point during your pregnancy. For example, you may want to arrange a session early on, when you are barely showing. The fun part about this is that you can use the resulting photos to send out a surprise announcement card to friends and family. Or you may want to arrange your shoot at a later trimester, when your baby bump is on full display. This works well because the images will show you in a whole new light, different from pre-pregnancy photo sessions of the past. Or you may even have us photograph you at different points throughout your pregnancy, showing your baby develop from the outside :) If this is the case, we will be happy to arrange a multi-shoot package that works best for you.
Where Will The Maternity Photography Take Place?
Short answer - wherever you feel most comfortable! If you prefer to stay close to home, we will arrange the session in and around your house. For example, we may photograph you in the garden or backyard, indoors, and taking a walk around the block. If you are feeling more adventurous, we may choose a public location such as a park or a beach, for a nice natural environment. The main point is that you be at ease and feeling like yourself. If you swim every day of your pregnancy, we will photograph you in the ocean. If you love to knit, we'll photograph you making a hat or booties for your baby-to be. There is no shortage of creativity once we know a bit about you and your personality.
What Should I Wear To My Maternity Photo Shoot?
As above, this is all about your comfort. Definitely wear something that you can move around in and feel unrestricted. You may want to bring a couple of outfit options to your shoot, so your photographer has choices. If you are planning for multiple outfit changes, we will want to discuss this ahead of time, as this can extend the length of time required for a successful shoot.
What Is A Typical Maternity Shoot Like?
As you'l see from our portfolio, we are not afraid to push the envelope when it comes to maternity photography. This could mean placing you in an unusual or unexpected setting, being a little more daring with the photos, or taking a more artistic approach. If you are willing to try something new, let us know ahead of time. That way, your photographer can be prepared with 'outside the box' suggestions for your shoot. Of course, we also specialize in more traditional maternity sessions. So there is something for everyone.
Can Other People Be In My Maternity Photo Shoot?
Of course! If your husband or partner wants to be involved, we say the more the merrier. We will design the shoot around the two of you, or designate a portion of the session to capture you as a couple. We've also incorporated and furry members of the family, aka dogs and puppies. Whoever you'd like to have included, we are all for it. Or if you'd prefer having the spotlight to yourself, that works well too - you've earned it. If the shoot is going to be particularly involved or complex, please let us know your plans before the shoot itself. That way we can make adjustments well ahead of time.
