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.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION:
These maternity sessions are up to one hour
These sessions give you the option of a silhouette style shoot at my Upper Ferntree Gully studio or to choose your own location and include 30minutes of travel. You may wish to have your session at home, in a national park, a garden or at a location that is special to you. Please note if a photography permit is required this is your responsibility to organise and is not included in the package.
If you have a look in mind and are not sure where would be best please reach out and we can find a location to suit.
CAN MY PARTNER, KIDS OR PETS COME TO:
Absolutely, your session can be customised to perfectly suit your family which means you are welcome to have your photos on your own, with the whole family or a combination.
I’ve always considered pets family and love working with animals so please feel free to include them in your session too. Don’t forget to bring treats. Please note some locations such as national parks don’t allow animals.
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.
You are welcome to bring a few different outfits to your shoot just keep in mind not all national parks etc have somewhere to get changed.
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.
