Maternity FAQ

Maternity Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the best time to book my maternity shoot?

I recommend booking your maternity shoot earlier one to ensure that you obtain your preferred date. The best time to photograph mommy tummies is anywhere between 28 and 36 weeks. Some ladies find that they do not show till later in their pregnancy while other women may show much sooner. If you are showing earlier then you can certainly book sooner! I do try to advise against booking within the last month of your pregnancy as many women will find they begin to retain more water in the last month, as well as feeling a bit more tired.

Do I need to supply the dresses/outfits for the session?

We provide all gowns and wardrobe for you special day. We have a variety of gowns, ranging in sizes x-small to plus size. We cater to all body types and sizes, so you will not need to worry about us having a dress for you. Feel free to browse our portfolio to get an idea of some of what we offer. You are welcome to wear several of our studio dresses for your session. The only thing we do not provide is undergarments and footwear. Once booked we will give you a list of all items to bring to your session.

Where do the portrait sessions take place?

Sessions can take place at our centrally located studio or at an outdoor location. We offer several outdoor locations to choose from. You are welcome to book both indoor and outdoor for a additional fee of $150. This covers the additional time and travel to the second location.

What if the weather does not cooperate on the day of my session?

It is not uncommon in the spring, summer, and fall months to have unexpected weather. In the event that it rains or is too cold, we do offer the option of either shooting your session inside at the studio or rescheduling to a new date. You will not be penalized for this and we will do our best to accommodate if this occurs. Typically we will wait until the day of to determine the weather {as we know it changes by the hour here}, however if that is not possible we are happy to change it a day or two before if you have stylists booked and they require more notice.

What if I need to reschedule?

If you become ill, or an unexpected event occurs please just contact us as soon as possible to let us know, we will do our best to reschedule you. In the event of a no show, session fees are not carried forward and non refundable.

Can my spouse and/or children/pets attend the session?

Yes, you are welcome to bring your husband, partner, children, pets etc to your session. We will provide styling suggestions for them so that you may have time to prepare their outfits.

Do you offer Nude/Boudoir Maternity?

Yes! We are happy to offer many styles of maternity portraits from nudes/boudoir, to lifestyle, or glamour.

Do you edit out stretch marks or scars?

We sure do! Stretch marks are a very common experience for momma’s and we have a great deal of experience working with this. Minor to moderate stretch mark removal is included in your session. For more extensive retouching we do charge an additional editing fee .

How long before I will be able to view my gallery and order photos?

Your gallery will be ready to view in 1-2 weeks from the time of your session. With your permission we do post a couple sneak peek images on social media until then. Once completed we send you a private password protected gallery to select your digital files from your gallery. Digital files are sent immediately.
