Sometimes we are glowing. Sometimes we feel like absolute trash. Regardless, for every parent, this time is truly exciting. In the grand scheme of things, it is such a fleeting time, even if you currently feel like you’re experiencing the never-ending pregnancy.
We don’t overly pose or structure the session – it really is just a celebration of this fleeting time in your lives as you wait for the arrival of your little human.
How many weeks is best?
Maternity sessions are best around the 34-38 week mark. When you have a nice big belly, but aren’t completely over the whole caper.
For twins, around 28-32 weeks is fabulous.
How early should I book?
The studio is generally booked around 2-3 weeks in advance, so booking in your 2nd trimester is best to get the best pick of available dates, especially if we need to accomodate your partners work schedule and availabilities.
Can my older kiddos attend? What about my partner? Fur Baby?
Yes, yes and yes!
We photograph everything and anything that constitutes ‘family’ – welcoming a new human into your clan is important for everyone, so everyone is welcome, including the fur baby.
What do we wear?
We have a gorgeous selection of dresses in our studio wardrobe and you are welcome to choose from anything in our range. Our studio wardrobe works best when we ‘mix and match’ from things at home, or you’re welcome to bring along anything you’d like from home.
Plain and simple works best, with clothes which show off the bump. For partners, anything co-ordinating with you is perfect – keep it simple and steer clear of any large checks, spots, stripes or logos.
Should I have my hair and make up done?
This is completely up to you, however we do find that mumma’s who invest a little bit in themselves, feel just that little bit more fabulous in front of the camera. And how you feel is what it’s all about at the end of the day!
So if it’s a good excuse to find 45 minutes to escape to be pampered, then go for it!
Where are these sessions held?
Maternity sessions can be held at any of our locations – our gorgeous studio in Edwardstown, South Australia is light, bright and comfortable and we have access to the entire studio wardrobe.
We can also head to our Forest & Field location in Blackwood, just let us know beforehand if you’d like any of the dresses from the studio wardrobe bought along.
Or we can come to you in your home or our Beach location at Port Willunga.
How much are maternity sessions?
All our sessions are $285.
This covers your photographer’s time and talent capturing your gorgeous images, and a personalised, online, watermarked gallery of your images session. From this gallery you choose two of your favourite images to be printed and mounted in our 5×7″ linen folio. This is yours to keep.
You can choose to order additional prints and products, including digital files, from our Studio Catalogue, however most families choose to have their newborn photographed as well, and often the Maternity Session images are included when purchasing a collection from your Newborn Session.
How do I book?
You can jump on the studio’s calendar linked below, choose from Studio Session – Pregnancy, Forest & Field, Family Home and even the Beach.
In order to secure your date and time, we require the session fee to be paid in full, however this is able to be rescheduled in the event of illness, covid or bad weather*
