The best time to photograph maternity pictures is between 28 to 32 weeks. Your belly is full but you are still comfortable enough to pose. For expecting mothers of twins (or more), come in earlier around 26 – 32 weeks as twins tend to arrive much earlier than singletons.
As soon as you know you are pregnant, feel free to contact me to secure your date. This is the time when you should relax and have an excuse to pamper yourself during your pregnancy. Maternity sessions capture a unique time in a woman’s life and is something that should be celebrated and preserved forever.
I can work outdoors, with sessions done at sunrise or sunset, in my studio in Fanwood, where I have a lot of fabric, clothing, lighting and backdrops or the session can be also done in your home. Some clients like to do two locations, in the studio and outdoors. This is a great way to capture multiple scenes and have both portraits of yourself and with your family. If you choose to come to my studio, I also have a 1/2 acre beautiful garden to capture outdoor pictures, so we can combine the indoor/outdoor photos in addition to those more classic studio shots. However, sticking with one location is a great option too, which gives you the option of having more images to choose from. Studio maternity photography is wonderful and a super option all year round!
I offer incredible service and an amazing experience starting with a phone or video consultation. We will then have a session tailored to meet your goals with matching props and decorations. About two weeks later you will meet again for reviewing the entire session. I will be able to assist you with your design selections for your wall or album shown on a big screen, showing a virtual mock up of your room. In this private reveal session, your hand-edited, printed images from the session will be ready for you and you will be able to leave with them in the folio box on that day. How many images you choose is up to you. You only take home the portraits that you truly love.
My $190 Session Fee includes a choices from the studio wardrobes and accessories, a phone consultation (to discuss location and wardrobe options) as well as an ordering session (to assist with your purchase selections and design of custom wall displays).
A Baby Plan allows you to purchase a set number of sessions. You can then choose to use your sessions at any time over 5 years, and if you need a longer time frame, that is ok too. Baby plans were designed to give you the flexibility of using your paid sessions. When booking your first session, a deposit is made towards the plan.
Most clients spend between $1200 - $3000 for the session after the purchase of prints and wall art. Each Fine Art Print is mounted and ready for framing and comes with a corresponding web and high resolution digital. There is no obligation to buy anything, you leave only with the images you absolutely love, the amount is up to you. A Beautiful Folio Box of 6 mounted fine art prints, and the corresponding digitals, starts at $900.
Feel free to email me prior to booking with any questions and to set up a date.
