Maternity sessions are centered around the mama-to-be but by all means, include the dad-to-be and any siblings (of the two or four-legged variety) as this is an exciting time for your entire family! I will capture both individual and family images to tell your entire story!
Sessions can take place in studio or outdoors (weather permitting) and can also be split between the studio and an outdoor spot nearby. Included in your session is full access to my extensive wardrobe of beautiful maternity gowns, bodysuits and fabrics. For outdoor sessions, I bring a pop-up change room so you can change into as many outfits as you like.
Your comfort is extremely important to me and you are free to bare as much or as little of your belly (and body) that you care to.
You are welcome to reserve your session any time after you have established your due date, but you will want to schedule a time between 32 and 36 weeks when you are showing enough of a full belly, but not quite ready to deliver! Scheduling in the earlier weeks ensures that you will have a bit more mobility for poses.
Newborn sessions are always centered around the baby and most importantly the baby’s comfort and safety. I never force babies into uncomfortable or dangerous poses and you will always be by my side when I need and extra hand. There is always plenty of time for feedings and cuddles during newborn sessions.
Newborn sessions usually take place when the baby is 6 to 12 days old and can take place in studio or the comfort of your home. If I come to you, I bring everything needed for the session including props and clothing. The only thing I ask is that you keep your home warm during the session so that the baby is comfortable. The whole family is welcome and encouraged to join in the newborn session.
I have lots and lots of newborn props, fake furs, wraps, headbands, tiebacks and hats and my collection is growing daily! All of my props are thoroughly cleaned after each newborn session.
