If you are having a maternity portrait session then I advise you to book about your session for about 6 weeks (34weeks) before your due date.
If you have decided to do this last minute and you are already past that date then please feel free to contact me to see if I have any openings.
On the day of the shoot make sure you have something to eat and try to avoid tight clothing that may leave elastic marks on your skin. If it is not too uncomfortable then I recommend you leave your bra off for at lease an hour before we start. If this is too uncomfortable then I can airbrush out any strap marks during processing; your comfort is the most important thing.
I recommend plain clothing with no logos. We want to emphasize your beautiful shape and busy clothes can be distracting.
I always take the time before each session to discuss the sort of portrait that you want to have before we start. Some mums-to-be want to celebrate their bump fully clothed and others are happy to go for a more intimate yet tasteful session.
A LOT of mums to be have stretch marks ... if you do and you hate them then don't let it put you off being photographed. We can airbrush :)
However you chose to be photographed, the end result will be a beautiful piece or art that will celebrate this miraculous time in your life.
