MATERNITY SHOOT ~ helpful hints…

By Carissa, April 26, 2016

Below are some helpful hints too help make your maternity shoot stunning!

I love the type of maternity shoots I offer. Its not only a chance to memorialize an important milestone in your life, it is also a chance to embrace the changes your body goes through and the life that you have created.


What to bring

Long dresses are a great place to start. Anything that accentuates your shape. Colour is really important, choose colours that you suit and feel comfortable in. I also love jeans and a black or white singlet or t-shirt. I have a selection of maternity dresses, fabrics for draping and some props.



The other fun things you can bring are booties, a special toy, your scan photo, your partners shirt, and so on!



How long does a shoot take

Session times depend on…

ONE: Budget & TWO: How many images you want

I offer maternity mini shoots either as a 20 minute mini shoot (a couple of different poses and fabric choices for draping) an hour long maternity shoot (a wide selection of poses and props) or my clients favourite, my combo shoot, which combines a maternity & new born shoot or maternity, new born & sitter shoot



The BEACH, The PARK, Your PLACE, My STUDIO OR Something different…How about the main street of your town or some other special place



Under Garments

Bring a strapless bra and some nude undies or boy leg shorts. Think comfy, but also neutral so they will look seamless underneath fabric and dresses.
