The best time to schedule and reserve your maternity photoshoot is at the beginning of your third trimester when your belly bump is nice and full. You should book as soon as you know you want a photoshoot to ensure you get the timeframe that you want. Deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your spot.
What to wear:
Our studio is stocked with a variety of maternity gowns in many sizes that is provided for the mom-to-be during the photoshoot. Please wear comfortable clothing to make it easy to change in an out of gowns.
Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. Please avoid busy prints and patterns.
Bring nude/white/black undergarments
Bras should be strapless
Makeup for touchup
If we are providing hair and makeup for you, please arrive at the studio with hair dried, and moisturizer only on face.
If you’re doing semi-nude/implied nude photos, bras and underwear will create noticeable lines on your skin, so wear loose-fitting clothing to the shoot. You can add undergarments as necessary for photos later in the shoot.

They should bring outfits that coordinate with what you’ll be wearing, The focus should always be on you, your expressions, your emotions, your personality, your joy and connection.
