How does a session with you work?
I ensure to provide an experience that goes beyond just a photo session. That’s why each booking includes a preliminary consultation, a client wardrobe of clothing for the mother, a discussion about the clothing you want to bring for yourself and your family, a studio or home session lasting up to an hour, and professional editing and retouching.
What are the packages and prices?
My base package is $500 and includes:
- A studio or outdoor/home session lasting up to one hour
- Pre-session consultation to plan your perfect session
- Access to my client wardrobe for mothers and baby accessories
- 5 professionally retouched digital photos
- Styling assistance to help you choose your clothes if you wish to bring them, as well as to select outfits for your family if they are participating in the photos.
Afterwards, you have the option to choose additional items à la carte, such as more digital photos, products (albums, frames), etc. I will send you my price brochure after you have booked the session.
To book your session, please click the link below, choose a date, and pay the $150 deposit. The remaining balance will be payable on the day of the session.
I don't know how to pose, and I feel uncomfortable in front of the camera.
I notice that 90% of my clientele claim not to be photogenic. However, I can assert that 99% of my clients love their photos! So, don’t worry, I’m here for that! I’ll guide you throughout your session by providing poses and small movements that will make for stunning shots.
What is the ideal time to schedule a maternity session?
I suggest scheduling the session between the 32nd and 35th weeks of pregnancy. It’s advanced enough to highlight your beautiful round belly but not too advanced to allow you to move comfortably!
What do I bring to my session?
For studio sessions, there’s no need to bring anything along! We have all the essentials covered, including maternity dresses, photo backdrops, and refreshments like tea, water, coffee, and snacks. Feel free to bring your own clothing and any sentimental items you’d like to incorporate. If you’re bringing children, remember to pack diapers (while I keep a few newborn sizes on hand for emergencies, I may not have all sizes) and ensure they’re well-prepared. You’ll receive a preparation guide the week before your session.
Image editing — example
Each image will receive basic color adjustment and skin retouching, etc. I never overdo the editing; you won’t look like a doll, but I do aim to highlight the natural beauty of you and your loved ones.
