Being pregnant is a special time in your life and is worth capturing in photos! Those nine months can feel like they drag on, but once your new baby arrives, it seems like it was just a blip in time. Many of my clients want to capture a few special images, either by themselves or with their spouse or other children. I offer maternity sessions as stand-alone sessions, or as add-ons with special pricing when you book a newborn session or baby plan.
Contact me to schedule a consultation or to get on my calendar. Maternity sessions are best done between 32-36 weeks. We’ll go over your goals for the session, colors and poses you love (and those you don’t), and plan your perfect session. Both parents as well as any older siblings are welcome to be part of your session.
+ How early should I book my session?
Once you are in your second trimester, you should reach out to schedule your maternity and newborn sessions. I only take a limited number of sessions each month so that I can give all of my attention to the clients I have booked. This gives us plenty of time to plan and order anything we need (gowns, etc).
+ How should I prepare for my session?
Once you are ready to book, we'll speak in person, over the phone or via email to plan the details of your session, including colors and clothing selections, groupings, etc.
+ Can I have all the images from my session?
My hope is that you'll love your images from our session! Each session comes with a selection of edited digital images (5, 10, or 20). If there are more images that you love, you can add images for $20 each or 10 for $150. I don't ever release RAW or unedited images.
+ Can I print my pictures wherever I want?
Yes, every session comes with a selection of your favorite images along with a print release allowing you to make prints, canvases, announcements, etc. I have suggestions for better consumer labs in your print release. You can also order products directly through me and my professional lab to ensure the highest quality.
+ How much does a session cost?
I have a few options for maternity sessions, as listed directly above the Questions area. If you are scheduling a newborn session or baby plan along with your maternity session, you'll save on each session. I do ask for a $50 deposit to book your date once it's decided.
+ Where is the best location for my session?
You have several locations to choose from for your session, including our Navarre studio, the beach, and additional outdoor spots. During your consultation we'll talk about all of the options!
