When should I book my maternity session?
Maternity sessions are best done between 34-36 weeks to ensure that we don’t schedule too close to your due date, but that you are far enough along to have an amazingly full belly to show off! Be sure to contact me by the end of your second trimester to secure availability on my calendar.
Where do maternity sessions take place?
All maternity sessions take place at an outdoor location. Marissa will work with you to figure out the best location for your session. All sessions take place on location. If convenience is more important than a great location, she will work with you to find a spot that works best for your family.
Do you offer mini maternity sessions?
If a mini session is taking place you are more than welcome to join and we can do maternity photos. Keep in mind, the type of package will determine the style of images that we capture together. Mini sessions take place at a specific location/date and various times are offered based on Marissas availability. These sessions are determined by interest, so most mini sessions will happen between the fall season - from August to November.
What do you recommend for outfits?
Its important for you to be yourself and feel comfy in what you are wearing, but I do have some recommendations especially if you are going for a similar look to the photos in my portfolio. I do provide styling assistance for all regular maternity sessions and all sessions (30 min mini or regular maternity session) scheduled until the end of 2020 will include access to a styling assistance website called Style and Select (does not include 15 minute mini sessions).
I'm not 100% sold on doing a maternity session...
I realize that some mama's might be hesitant about having maternity photos taken because they aren’t comfortable with how they look. Your body is going through a transformation, and you may not feel like your usual self, but pregnancy is such a beautiful thing and this limited timeframe should be documented before it’s no longer present. I will do my very best to direct you in a way that will accentuate your own beauty surrounding the joy of that growing baby, and fully illustrate just how glowing and radiant you are.
