Maternity sessions are best held at 32-36 weeks along. I suggest this time so that you have a beautiful round belly but are still comfortable to move around. Maternity shoots are done mostly done outdoors using the bay area’s gorgeous parks, beaches. cities and quaint little beach towns. They can also be done indoors if you are on bed rest or even just want a casual maternity shoot in the comfort of your own home. When I shoot maternity sessions in homes, I love to use baby’s nursery as a sweet and unique backdrop. This is also a great option if you have any pets that are a big part of your life. Nothing is more comfortable than being curled up on your couch with your pup or kitty’s head resting on your bump.
Shortly after booking, I will send a questionnaire so that we can plan the perfect shoot for you. My goal is to make you look and feel beautiful, confident, proud, happy. Basically all the feels that go along with such an amazing time in your life. I’m currently working on style guides for all of my sessions but until then, I will help you with your wardrobe, if you would like. Flowy dresses and tops are my favorite way to dress up a bump. Of course in the right setting and with the right attitude, a form fitting dress can look incredible too. The right outfit(s) can make or break your shoot, so you want to take the time to pick out the perfect outfits for you. I have a few dresses and accessories that you are welcome to use. I also have a variety of children’s accessories, girls dresses,and bow ties and for boys, if you have other children that will be in the shoot as well.
