The best time for a pregnancy session is at approximately 33 to 36 weeks pregnant, when you have the lovely curve of your belly, yet you are still comfortable and glowing. The maternity photo shoot takes approximately one hour and takes place in my home studio in Avalon on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
What to wear
One lovely option is a nice bikini top or bra along with a sarong or skirt that hangs nicely under your belly. A shirt or cardigan that will frame your belly is great to use in some photos. Feel free to bring a few other garments or accessories, such as jewellery, scarves or nice underwear.
If you would like to do any topless or nude pregnancy photography, we recommend not wearing anything too tight or constricting prior to the session in case your clothing leaves marks on your skin.
The Viewing Session
Your viewing session will be approximately one week after your portrait session, and we will arrange a suitable time for you to view your photos at the photo shoot. I recommend inviting your partner, parent or a friend to come along with you to the viewing session, so they can enjoy the show and help you choose your prints.
The viewing session generally takes between 60 and 90 minutes. You will view all the images as a slideshow set to music and projected onto our large viewing screen, so you can decide on your selection. Viewing all the images is a special and joyous experience, and I love sharing this time with my clients as they choose from all the images.
Once you make your order, the images will be ready to collect in approximately two weeks.
The session fee is due on the day of the portrait session. We require a 50% payment with your order of images and the balance is due when you collect the images. Payment can be made using cash, cheque or credit card.
