FAQs for maternity photos
Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions for my maternity photography package.
When is the best time to book in for a maternity shoot?
The best time is in-between 34-37 weeks. At this stage your belly is nice and round but you are hopefully not too uncomfortable. You don’t want to have the shoot too late, just in case your baby decides to come early.
Where will my maternity shoot take place?
Maternity photos can be done anywhere really. Usually we chose an outdoor location or you may prefer to have them done right in your home.
How long does the shoot go for?
Maternity sessions usually last for around an hour. This can depend on our location or if any other children are involved in the shoot.
What happens if it rains?
We do not need perfect weather to get great photos but if it is really pouring with rain on this date, then we will reschedule for a time that suits us both.
What should I wear?
Anything that makes you feel good and shows off your beautiful bump. If you feel good, you will look good! You’re more than welcome to bring a change of clothes and try a couple of different looks. Or if you’re still unsure I’m happy to give you my suggestions.
Can I include my partner and child/ children in the shoot?
Yes, most definitely. As this is a maternity session, our main focus of the shoot is you and your bump. However, it’s also a lovely time to include your partner and children in the excitement. Just let me know exactly who is coming along to the shoot.
When will we receive our photos?
You will be able to download your images within 3-4 weeks. This is really a maximum time frame and I do try to get them to you sooner. I’ll post a couple of sneak-previews on social media during this time just to make the wait a little easier.
What if I need to cancel my shoot?
Your non-refundable booking fee is non-refundable. However, if for unseen circumstances you need to cancel and aren’t able to reschedule your maternity shoot, then you may use this as credit towards another shoot such as a newborn / baby lifestyle session or a family shoot.
How do I book my session with you?
Contact me ASAP during your pregnancy and we can figure out the best date for you. To secure your session I will need a signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee/deposit.
