The MATERNITY EXPERIENCE
ELEGANT MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT | TIMELESS PREGNANCY PORTRAITS | FINE ART B&W SILHOUETTES
The Maternity experience is an all-inclusive luxury photography session, designed to craft the most beautiful portraits of you and your changing body, during this very intimate and emotional moment of your woman life.
From the first moment that we meet to the reveal of your images, you will be provided with the most personalized and unparalleled experience.
WHY DO I NEED MATERNITY PICTURES?
Discovering that you were carrying life has probably been a very defining moment for you. If not already, your body will start to change, and you will most certainly love it, embracing all the feelings (and naps) that goes along with your new curves.
This is real, and this is now. You know that this fleeting moment will disappear, and it will be the beginning of a brand new chapter in your life.
So now is the best moment to capture your body doing its best work, creating magic, in the essence of life and love.
You want to be able to remember that feeling: being One with your baby.
This is the beginning of her life, wrapped up in your love story.
Let’s remember this forever.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT?
ALL-INCLUSIVE LUXURY PHOTO COLLECTIONS
The Maternity Experience begins with the in-person consultation with me (depending on your location, this can be done through Zoom as well) to get to know each other better, go over the process together, and get you well prepared.
All our Collections include a full professional hair & makeup styling, access to the studio wardrobe, the photoshoot time with expert flow posing, multiple outfit and backdrop changes, and the reveal and ordering session where you select your final images and can order beautiful enlargements & products.
WHEN SHOULD I GET MATERNITY PICTURES?
THE PREGNANCY SWEET SPOT
Your Maternity session should ideally be scheduled 2 months in advance. This saves your spot and gives us some time to exchange ideas and do some nice online shopping.
The preferred moment to capture your pregnancy would be between 29 and 35 weeks, while your baby bump shows and you are still comfortable posing – but without the swollen ankles and being scared of going into labor the night before the shoot!
I do not recommend to go beyond that, when possible. But if you were to realize that you finally want these pictures, it’s all right. Reach out to me so we can discuss the best way to accommodate you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT?
EXPERT FLOW-POSING AND GENUINE CONNECTION
Photographing ALL WOMEN is what I do best. The women that are featured on my website aren't models; they are women like you and me, that were continuously guided and put at-ease throughout their session. With the right guidance, you will be your own magazine cover!
As a non-model mom myself, I absolutely understand how it feels to be camera shy, not feel quite like yourself, or feeling self-conscious. My mission is to help you embrace being seen and shine, raise your confidence, and have a lot of fun along the way.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR MY MATERNITY SHOOT?
TIMELESS ELEGANCE & CLASSIC CHIC
During your consultation we will go over your current wardrobe and discuss how we can use the pieces that you already have and that you love. My aim is to create timeless images, that stand the test of time, so you will be thoughtfully guided through what to borrow or purchase.
You will have full access to my Studio wardrobe that features comfortable wraps, elegant silky fabrics and must-have pieces for a beautiful variety of outfits.
BOUDOIR MATERNITY: NUDE OR NUDE IMPLIED?
Fine art nudes like black and white silhouettes or implied nudes pictures are gorgeous ways to capture your curves as well. You will always show as little or as much as you want, and we will cover the type of image you want and how comfortable you feel during your consultation. No surprises, just the fun.
HIGH-END EDITING FOR THE MODERN WOMAN
High-end retouching is included in every collection, and little imperfections such as blemishes or body contours are not to worry about. Your curves will be flattered with lighting and posing first, then expert editing and modern retouching technics will finish enhancing your natural beauty without taking out the skin texture and what makes you you.
COMPREHENSIVE & DETAILED APPROACH
During the consultation we will discuss the details you want us to take care of, leave as-is, or feature. Some women don’t want to show their stretch marks, and some do want to see them as inherently part of their pregnancy: I will always accompany you to create a true work of art that best represents you.
HAIR & MAKEUP ARTISTRY
ELEGANT & NATURAL BEAUTY ENHANCING
Professional hair styling and makeup are included in every Collections. We will discuss various styles together, from clean nude-alike skin, to more sophisticated looks.
You will be under expert care so you can come as you are, and trust that you will look and feel amazing all along.
