When should I schedule my maternity session?
The best time to schedule your maternity session is around 28-34 weeks. This ensures your tummy will be nice and round, but you hopefully will not be too uncomfortable at this point. We recommend scheduling at least two to three weeks in advance. We have limited sessions available, so you want to book as soon as possible.
Do you offer hair and makeup services?
Yes! We can have a stylist waiting for you when you arrive at the studio. Let us know if you are interested in this service, and we will make sure the stylist has you looking glamorous. You might want to schedule a night out because you will look so amazing! Hair and makeup services are added to the session cost.
What should I wear?
Once you book your session, we will set up a consultation with you to help you pick out your outfits. There are some great maternity gowns on Etsy that are simply gorgeous. We have packages that include hair, makeup, and dress rental. We also have a number of gowns at the studio that can be used free of charge.
Where do sessions take place?
We have a studio in downtown Lawrenceville, GA. Sessions can take place in the studio or outdoors. One of the best outdoor maternity locations around is Prospect Farms. We do have a bed in the studio to allow for comfortable laying down shots, as well as great natural light. These are all things we will discuss during your pre-session consultation.
Can I add a newborn session?
Absolutely! We love to photograph bumps and babies! If you book your newborn and maternity session at the same time, you will receive a discounted rate. We can create gorgeous products for you that include both your maternity and newborn images.
How long are the sessions?
Maternity sessions traditionally last around 1.5 to 2 hours. We plan for you to take breaks in between setups and allow plenty of time for changing outfits.
Are digital images or prints included?
No. We don’t charge up front for your images. We want you to have the opportunity to choose and buy only what you like. Our packages include BOTH digital and print items. We want you to walk away physical photographs from your sessions, not just a disk of images you may never print out. Plus we want to provide you with professional quality prints. This is a super important time in your life and these images will be keepsakes that last.
