Pregnancy is the most special and unique time in your life and my mission is to capture your inner strength and beauty through timeless works of art. I am proud to provide an unforgettable experience and create stunning portraits that celebrate you and the miraculous life within you. Are you expecting a first? Or maybe a second? Why not capture those special memories? Include your other children in your session as well.
WHEN SHOULD BOOK MY MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOT IN?
The best time to book a maternity photo shoot is as soon as you know your due date or approximate date. We will book in your maternity session in for around the 32-37 week mark as your belly is usually quite prominent at this stage of your pregnancy.
WHERE WILL MY MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOT BE?
Maternity photo shoots can be done in my home studio in Point Cook or at an outdoor location arranged prior to your session.
HOW LONG WILL MY MATERNITY SESSION TAKE?
I aim to capture all images in 1 hour. Sometimes it can take a little longer with some wardrobe changes etc.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOT?
I have a variety of maternity dresses in difference colours, styles and sizes which you are welcome to wear for your maternity photo shoot.
I also make use of a selection of materials that can be draped around you. I recommend that you also bring something along that you feel most comfortable in. For family photos I recommend neutral colours as they are timeless. Please avoid stripes, patterns or licensed clothing (eg. Thomas the tank engine, Frozen). While it is cute for little ones it is not recommended for your portraits.
WILL I BE ABLE TO HAVE SOME FAMILY PHOTOS DONE AS WELL?
Yes absolutely! Family photos are included in your maternity session fee. Family photos include your partner and siblings.
HOW MUCH WILL MY MATERNITY SESSION COST?
I offer a 50% discount on your maternity session when your maternity and newborn session is booked at the same time. Please refer to my Pricing page.
WHAT TYPE OF EDITING DO YOU DO PROVIDE FOR MATERNITY PHOTO SHOOTS?
All images have a basic edit done prior to your proof viewing. Once you have had your proof viewing and selected the images you would like to place an order for I then do the final edit on these selected images. I ensure that any pimples, obvious scratches, marks etc are removed. Please note that extensive airbrushing editing is not included in standard packages. For airbrushing for other portraits please inquire regarding pricing.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION IN?
Your Newborn session will be booked in when booking your Maternity session. We will book a date approximately 5-10 after your due date. If baby arrives early please ensure that you stay in touch. A short text message will do so I am able to reschedule your Newborn shoot.
