My Approach to Maternity Photography

My Approach to Maternity Photography

More than any other type of family photography, I feel that maternity photography elicits the strongest opinion.  Maternity photography can range anywhere from posed studio photography:

To almost documentary style:

To a more lifestyle approach:

My Approach to Maternity Photography

I know that when I was pregnant, a lot of the maternity photography just made me cringe and that is why I want to create an experience for all my families that they will love and especially photos that they will cherish forever.

When a family first enquires I try to get a feel for what type of imagery they would like.  Usually, if they ask for a studio session I get the feeling they want it a bit more posed.  In-home or outdoors is likely a bit more relaxed.  Often times I will ask them to find me inspiration images so I can get an idea of what they like.  This is really the best way to communicate the look and feel that you want from your session.

In reality, we get a little bit of everything.  I will often do a wide variety of both more guided shots and shots where we have a little more movement.  In terms of clothing, I send out a questionnaire to all of my families to understand what they would like from fully clothed only to a bit more nudity.

My maternity sessions are offered two different ways.

You can purchase the maternity session as a stand alone session.  A session fee is paid to secure your date and includes the creation of the proofs.  Session is 1-2 hours long and includes a minimum of 40 proofs.  After you can select which photos you’d like.

If you book a newborn session with me, you can book a mini maternity session.  These are an all inclusive fee that includes your digitals.  The session is 45 minutes long and includes a minimum of 25 images.

You can find more information on my pricing page or contact me directly.
