Choose a photographer that makes adding maternity photos a no-brainer

It’s no secret that maternity photos taken by a professional are an investment.

Most photographers only offer maternity photo sessions as a standalone service. It’s an additional cost to your newborn session. One that can stop you from booking that extra session of maternity photos.

I offer maternity photo sessions as a complimentary add-on service. I don’t want you to skip out on maternity photos because you’d rather put that money towards the newborn photos. So I take the cost barrier to maternity photos out of the equation!

The one caveat? You’ve got to book your newborn session early enough so that you have time to take me up on the offer of included maternity photos!

Choose a maternity photographer who makes you feel your best

Most pregnant women don’t feel their best during pregnancy, making it hard to have any motivation to get in front of a professional photographer.

Maybe you feel “big” or are not a fan of the stretch marks that have appeared; whatever the case… I’ve got you.

I offer a maternity photo session that will help you feel your best and capture your best angles with the softest and most luminous lighting. I aim to have you comfortable and confident in front of the camera, so you can relax and enjoy your session. Don’t just take it from me. This is what Inna had to say about her maternity photos:

Wow, you are amazing! I’m not usually a fan of maternity photos at all and somehow you took TWENTY that I’d love to print out and save forever. (Full disclosure, I thought I’d have a hard time even finding 10 I liked enough before seeing the gallery.) Really happy with these and I am such a harsh critic when it comes to this stuff, so THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I was reluctant to even take maternity photos and am already so glad we did.”

Choose a maternity photographer who takes the mystery out of what to wear

Maybe, by now, you’re interested in having maternity photos, but when you start thinking about finding something to wear or what to wear, you are completely overwhelmed and want to just say, “forget it!”

Again, don’t worry! I’ll help guide you on what to wear for your maternity photos.

I have a whole collection of robes and dresses that you are welcome and encouraged to wear at the studio. I scrounge the internet for the pretty pieces, so you don’t have to.

Schedule a time to come on in and try things on before your session or try things on at your maternity session. We usually do 2-3 outfit changes to get a good variety.

Many maternity photos you’ve seen out there are cheesy and overdone.

No one wants to look back on their maternity photos in a few years and cringe, right?

This wardrobe available for your maternity photos will take any cringe factor off the table. You will be styled in pieces that are thoughtful and timeless.

If you’re pregnant, it’s time to think about booking your maternity and newborn sessions. And if you want beautiful photos that capture this special time in your life, I hope these tips help you find the best photographer for you.

Please get in touch with me here to see if I’m available around your due date. I look forward to hearing from you!
