Preparing for a Maternity Session

Bringing a baby into the world is a wonderful life event that should be captured with maternity photographs. It’s a time you are going to want to remember and share with your little one once they are a bit older. If you are thinking about or have recently booked a pregnancy photo session then the below tips should come in handy as your prepare for your session.

Best time to Schedule your maternity session is between 28 and 34 weeks as your tummy should have popped and have a beautiful shape, discomfort and bloating that happens earlier in the pregnancy and yet the fatigue that comes in later in the pregnancy has not set in yet.

If you already have some cute baby items such as shoes, hats, toys, blankets or onesies, bring them along as they make for adorable props. The same applies to family heirlooms here at Seraphine Photography that your families heirloom items are a great treasure. If you have a special locket or photo that you would like to use, bring it along too. More and more moms are using their ultrasound photos in their photo sessions. If you aren’t too sure whether you want to use it or not, bring it to the photo session and we can decide on the day.

Take the time to pick the right outfit for the maternity portrait session. You should of course be comfortable but make sure that your clothing doesn’t detract from your tummy’s shape and your natural glow. Avoid large, bold patterns or clothing that is too loose. Empire waists, drawstrings, flowing tops and wrap dresses are perfect for enhancing your shape.

Considering a hair and makeup artist is a great treat that will have you pampered and feeling and looking your best and pampered prior to getting your maternity pictures taken.
