How to prep for your session
With your maternity session complimentary hair and makeup is included! Please prep your face and come with no makeup or foundation only. If you op out of this please do your makeup as you would like! We want to make sure you feel pampered and perfect!
Before your session make sure you have shaved to your liking/best of your ability, do your nails up all nice (this cannot be fixed in post production), and avoid spay/fake tanning!
I always recommend curly/wavy hair as it looks best in photos and I’m able to make it even more voluminous! If you straighten your hair please hairspray it to avoid lots of baby hairs! I will always have a comb and extra hairspray in studio.
Please eat and drink something substantial before your session! We do not want your feeling lightheaded/tired during your session!
We will have Champagne (non-alcoholic) water and snacks available during your session! You need to stay hydrated – if you feel light headed at all let us know and we will bring you water and snacks!
Take as many breaks as you need! YOU are the star of the show! We will slow down when you need to.
We photograph both fully clothed and tastefully nude or somewhere in between! If you haven’t discussed your comfort level with me, please shoot me a message to let me know!
Once we finish the session we will schedule the date for your photo reveal!
I have you coved momma! You will have styled outfits and fabrics ready for you when you come to your session! Please let me know of any colors you would like incorporated in your images!
If you are bringing your own gown/outfit please send me a photo of it ahead of time so I can prepare for it.
Please wear a button down shirt that is a sloid color such as white. Other options would be light gray, olive green, navy, or light blue.
For studio please wear long pants, jeans (I love some ripped jeans!) – please try to stay away from black pants/jeans.
Boy should wear a cute button down or tee shirt in the same color scheme as your session. I recommend nice shorts or long pant depending on what each kiddo prefers!
Girls have some options of dresses in the studio! I always recommend bringing a safety backup outfit that would look nice being photographed in either white, nude or pastel colors. Please let me know their clothing size before the session.
Enjoy your session! Preparing to bring your little one into the home is very stressful. This day isn’t about stress, but having fun, enjoying yourself, be pampered and create some beautiful art!
