Maternity Sessions

Your Maternity Session will be a beautiful way to celebrate your baby and the “this is about to get real” moment when you realize you will be a parent! Whether you choose alone maternity session or a romantic couples session, these are nice memories you don’t want to miss!

1. Why should I schedule a maternity photo session?

Almost every woman wants photos that capture the radiance and beauty of pregnancy; that’s why lots of glowing mamas-to-be want maternity photos. But beyond that, maternity photography sessions mark the important and life-altering transition into motherhood.

Simply put, a maternity session is an incredible way to embrace your new identity as a mother and celebrate this new phase of life with loved ones. You’ll have the perfect opportunity to slow down and savor those tiny kicks and flips, all while your photographer captures gorgeous images of you before you meet your baby.

These sessions are also a wonderful way to connect with your spouse at a time when most of the attention is probably focused on you and your baby. In fact, a great maternity session should feel like a date night, complete with lots of laughter, snuggles and kisses between you and your partner.

2. What should I wear for my maternity photos?

I advise mamas-to-be to consider floor-length gowns, dresses and skirts for maternity sessions. Longer lengths are elegant, feminine and romantic; they’re also ultra flattering when you’re expecting. Whether you’re standing, sitting or lying down, a long dress or skirt ensures you’re fully covered, without worrying about your outfit riding up too high.

I also favor longer lengths for expectant mamas because it’s easier to hide footwear you may not want visible in your images. If you’re at the point where only flip flops are bearable, don’t sweat it as long as your dress covers your feet!

When it comes to color choice, earth tones and light pastels photograph wonderfully no matter what location you select. Remember to keep your clothing on the more fitted side, instead of extra flowy, so that you can easily show off your bump!

Don’t forget to ask your photographer if they have a client closet you can browse through. Many of us keep gowns and dresses on hand that photograph beautifully and are provided to you at no extra cost to ensure you love your photos!

3. When should I schedule a maternity photography session?

It’s never too soon to find a photographer you love and get on their calendar! Most women schedule a maternity session for around 28-35 weeks pregnant for single babies and by about 30 weeks for multiples.

While there is some flexibility here, you’ll likely be more comfortable on your feet earlier in your pregnancy versus later. Your maternity session is a wonderful celebration of you and your growing family. You’ll enjoy yourself more if you’re not dealing with swollen hands and feet!

Some mamas have special considerations; for example, I’ve photographed families much earlier than 28 weeks who were expecting rainbow babies and simply wanted photos sooner. I have also worked with women just days before their due dates!

4. What should I do with the photos afterward?

There are endless options – from prints for the nursery to beautiful photo books, you should preserve these memories to share with family for years to come! These moments are far too precious to be kept on your phone forever, so make it a point to order prints and other keepsakes!

Looking for more creative suggestions? Decorate your baby shower with photos from your maternity session with Square Prints, framed images or stunning large Photo Prints. You can use these items afterward in baby’s nursery or another special place in your home. These images also make the sweetest gifts for grandparents, too!
