FAQ maternity Photoshoot

When is the best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot?

The ideal time for a maternity photoshoot is between 28 and 34 weeks of pregnancy. This timeframe usually captures the belly at a beautifully round shape, while most mothers still feel comfortable and mobile for posing.

What if I feel insecure about my body and how I look during my pregnancy?

This is a very natural and normal feeling that most mums-to-be experience, especially with their first pregnancy. You are growing a little baby inside of your body and with that comes a lot of changes to your own body. I’ve been there and completely understand how you feel.
We’ll have a chat about it and I promise you that it is my number one priority as a professional photographer to make you feel and look your best during our time together. I know many ways to hide unflattering things with the right posing and lighting. We will discuss everything beforehand and I can pose you in specific ways to hide these things in a flattering manner and always remember: we are masters in post-processing 🙂
This is also exactly the reason why having portraits of yourself looking amazing is so important. It really boosts your self-love. I know many ways to hide unflattering things with the right posing and lighting. So please trust me when I say you will look gorgeous in ALL your photographs!

What should I wear for my maternity photoshoot?

During our conversations, we will be planning the look and feel of your session and portraits. Stretchy or lace materials are perfect. Try to wear a loose-fitting dress to keep your skin smooth and remove any tight clothing incl underwear at least three hours prior to your session to avoid marks on your body. This is especially important if you plan to have any nude or semi-nude portraits.
You can bring different outfits to create different styles. We love to hear about any ideas that you may have too.

How long does a maternity session last?

Maternity photography sessions typically last between 1 to 2 hours. This allows ample time for wardrobe changes, different poses, and breaks as needed, ensuring a relaxed and enjoyable photoshoot experience.

Can my partner and other children participate in the shoot?

Absolutely! We encourage the inclusion of partners and siblings in maternity photoshoots. These photos capture the anticipation and love of the growing family, making them even more special.

Do your clients do their own hair and makeup?

For our maternity sessions a lot of clients do their own hair and makeup, however, as this most often is a beautiful but tiring time in your life, hiring someone to do your hair and makeup for your shoot is a wonderful way to pamper yourself so that you don’t have to worry about it. We have a fabulous in-house hair and makeup artist so let us know on time if you would like to book her. 

How far in advance should I book my maternity photoshoot?

We recommend booking your maternity photoshoot at least 2-3 months in advance. This ensures availability and gives us time to plan the perfect session tailored to your preferences.

Do you have any other tips to prepare for the session?

It is important to select a day for your photo shoot where you have nothing else planned. Having to rush between events causes stress which can show in the final images. Have lots of time to prepare and get plenty of rest. Stay hydrated and have a light snack before the session to keep your energy levels up. We will take care of the rest!

What happens after my session?

As soon as we’ve finished your maternity photoshoot, I’ll start preparing the reveal. In the meantime, you can go for a walk, lunch or rest in the studio. About 45 minutes later, you’ll experience a fully guided cinematic presentation of your best portraits and together we will design artwork that brings life to your home.
