Maternity Session Information

When is the best time to do our maternity session?

Although it varies by person, most moms feel their best at about 32 to 36 weeks. The tummy is usually rounded out by then and mom usually still feels great and not as uncomfortable as she may be during the last few weeks. Maternity sessions can be held either in studio or outside. 

What should I wear for my session?

There are so many styles that photograph well for a maternity shoot! Dress in what matches your own personal style-the following looks all photograph great on camera!

  • jeans and a black camisole, tank top, or bra
  • form-fitting dresses to show off your adorable tummy
  • flowy maxidresses that will hug your tummy, then flow beautifully to the ground
  • scarves or statement jewelry pieces
  • flowy maternity gowns (Etsy has gorgeous ones that allow you the chance to customize the color and design)

I LOVE helping you plan your clothing for sessions. Feel free to ask for any advice!

Session Tips:

Think about special props that may tell a story in your photos or may have special meaning. Perfect examples are:

  • a baby name book
  • ultrasound photos
  • baby shoes
  • blocks that spell out baby's name

The best props are your own family! Dad and siblings are always welcomed and encouraged to be a part of the session as they await the arrival of baby!
