MATERNITY SHOOT ~ helpful hints…

By Carissa, April 26, 2016

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.

As seen in Woman’s Day Magazine

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.


Other fun things…

Booties, a special toy, your scan photo, your partners shirt, and so on!



Think Sentimental!



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 somewhere industrial, the skate park, a jetty or some other special place



Combo Shoots

I offer a Maternity and newborn Combo at a reduced price so you can capture both special events!



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.
