Mom’s-to-be are always asking me should I book a maternity session or just do a newborn session and get in on a few pictures then. The answer is Yes. Yes ma’am you should book a maternity session. Here are a few reasons to book a maternity session.
● Once your baby is here its hard to remember your pregnancy, I think God planned it that way for so many reason but we are focused on the baby and kind of forgot all the things that went along with being pregnant. It’s a wonderful way to document this special journey in your life.
● Use your maternity session as a day to go spoil yourself. You don’t need an excuse but if you must have one let this be it 🙂 Get a mani/pedi and your hair and makeup done. You won’t be sorry, if you need suggestions on a HMUA (hair and make-up artist) I have a couple of ladies that I can suggest that are amazing! All women are gorgeous but pregnant woman have this glow and its a wonderful time of your life, capture it!
● Stylized or simple….. I love them all! I have an amazing studio on Southwest Drive and so many gorgeous outdoor locations we can use. I have a collection of fabrics, bandeaus, and skirts that are available to use for sessions, I recommend bringing favorite outfits of your own. Form fitted tops are great, flowy skirts or Jeans (not maternity) with a bandeau is a great way to show your bump and don’t forget about favorite accessories to showcase you personal style, a hat, boots, jewelry, scarves, etc. Be sure to plan for a number of changes and looks using different colors and styles to get the most out of your session.
● If you have other children, include them in the session. They are about to be big brothers and sisters and they are SO excited and I always try to get Dad’s to come and get involved too there is a special connection between Mom and Dad during this time and its beautiful to capture.
Best time to book a maternity session is between 30 and 34 weeks.
