Can I suggest ideas?

Yes of course! This is your maternity session. I will guide you and suggest ideas about posing, looks, locations and props but you are more then welcome to send me anything that inspires you. I encourage you to create a pinterest board that you can share with me. Visual ideas are so much easier to understand and discuss. Please keep in mind though that it is only inspiration and the images we create are unique and will not look the same as another photographers work.

Maternity sessions take place in one of three locations: studio, park, beach. We can discuss what works best for you!

What should I wear? Do you offer a client wardrobe?

Yes! I have few dresses, that are handpicked and work beautifully for your maternity session! You may also wear a dress you purchase or rent yourself, but please note that I will provide suggestions of color and style as the clothing you choose to wear for your session will make a difference in the final product! 

Depending on the gown’s quality and intricate detail work, there may be rental and/or dry-cleaning fees.

Depending on the gowns you have selected for your maternity session, the following are some suggested items to bring:

• Nude convertible bra - Another option is Nude Stick Bras

• Nude underwear - a thong is ideal or a spandex type panty that does not show lines

• Spandex shorts - Spanx or similar shorts are also ok provided they are nude

• Undergarments that match the style of clothing you prefer - such as lacey black panties for black gowns that open, or boy shorts.

• High heeled shoes (for long gowns)

• On location please bring some closed toe shoes.
