After hearing so many mums say how much they regretted not getting any nice photos while they were pregnant I wanted to offer a way for all my lovely mumma’s to get a few beautiful bump photos (even if you would just tuck them away in an album) to capture all the excitement and love of your journey to motherhood!
So now you can book a FREE 20-minute mini Maternity session when you pre-purchase your newborn photography
DOES IT INCLUDE DIGITAL FILES
Yes, the best bit is that you will receive at least 3 high-resolution files of your choice. The amount of free images is dependent on the newborn photography package you order so if you decide to upgrade your newborn photography package (don’t worry, you can decide after your newborn shoot) you’ll get extra bump photos!
HOW LONG IS A SESSION:
These mini sessions are 20 minutes and usually allow enough time for one outfit/look
Choose either: A silhouette style shoot at my Upper Ferntree Gully studio or on location at my favourite little spot in Upwey where the sun sets through the trees and is absolutely magical (please note weather may impact the availability of outdoor sessions)
Want more then just a few photos, to have your shoot at a special location or to bring more then one outfit? Maybe a full 1 hour maternity shoot would suit you better! Don’t worry you still get the bonus photos that come with your newborn photography package.
BEST TIME TO SHOOT:
As a guide, I've found 30-34 weeks is a great time for maternity sessions, before bub drops so your belly is beautifully round and your feeling great, however your welcome to book a session earlier or later if you wish.
CAN MY PARTNER, KIDS OR PETS COME TO:
Absolutely, just keep in mind that organising extra people/pets takes longer and will result in less photos to choose from. If bringing pets don’t forget to bring treats.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Its best to wear something that makes you feel incredible. If possible, something stretchy that hugs your baby bump will work best, floaty dresses can be harder to pose but also look beautiful. If your not sure let me know and we can choose together.
Choose colours and tones that are similar without being the same (eg. everyone in soft creams, beiges and pastel blues) and avoid anything with big logo's, prints and strong/bold patterns (like checks).
For studio sessions I have a couple of gorgeous white and black lace gowns you can use. These look amazing paired with white or black underwear or over the top of a long singlet dress.
HAIR & MAKE UP:
As I photograph using natural light you don’t need to wear heavy make up and can keep it soft and natural. I suggest doing your hair and makeup the way you would if you were going to be a guest at a wedding.
Sessions may be rescheduled due to illness or injury. Please contact me as soon as possible before your session on 0400898600 if you suspect a family member is unwell and we can make another time. While I am fully immunized, working with babies who haven't been means it is incredibly important that I don't pass on any illnesses to yours or anyone else's bub, your cooperation is much appreciated.
There is no charge to reschedule due to illness or injury if you give 24 hours notice.
