common concerns

What to Bring? 

Simplify it! Most photographers, like myself, offer a range of wardrobe options for you to explore. For my studio, you only need to bring underwear. I recommend a strapless bra and seamless panties in a skin tone. Like when I tell you I have you covered in the wardrobe department it is an understatement, we are talking endless amounts of dresses, fabrics, and everything you could need.

Feeling Unsure About Posing or "I'm Not Photogenic" 

Your comfort matters most. Your photographer's role is to capture your natural beauty and guide you through poses that resonate with you.

Camera Shyness 

It's okay! A good photographer creates a relaxed atmosphere where you feel comfortable and celebrated.

I Don't Have Fancy Maternity Attire 

Don't give it another moment of worry! Many photographers, including me, provide a beautiful selection of maternity dresses for your session.

What about Hair and Makeup?

This is oftentimes a very personal choice! Some studios, like mine, collaborate with skilled hair and makeup artists. They bring an extra touch of glamour to your photoshoot but know it is optional.

Capturing Cherished Moments.

Remember, your maternity photographer is dedicated to crafting these extraordinary images that capture the essence of this remarkable time in your life. Your photographs will become cherished memories not just for you but for your baby to be.
