FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR MATERNITY PORTRAIT SESSIONS
when is the best week of pregnancy for a maternity photo shoot?
We recommend booking your session between 12 - 20 weeks to ensure availability and the portrait session is best around 32 - 36 weeks pregnant. It also depends on how you are feeling throughout, but the emphasis is your beautiful big bump and the sessions are mostly standing, so keep this in mind.
Where do shoots take place?
Maternity shoots take place in either our North Sydney studio, or on location, outdoors, usually on Sydney's lower north shore and typically at either a beach or botanical gardens. There are many options to choose from!
what day of the week and time are maternity shoots ?
Preferably Monday to Friday (we have our own little families too), but exceptions can be made.
Timings vary on the look you want. For beaches, sunrise and sunset provide the most dramatic effect. Outdoor locations are usually mid to late afternoon when the sun is a little softer and the Studio is perfect any time!
how long does a maternity session take?
This will depend on who and how many are involved in your portrait session. A solo or couple in studio shoot is approximately 1 - 2 hours, depending on the number of set ups / outfits. A family outdoor session, captures your entire family. Individual shots of children and will take a bit more time working with children. That being said we shoot faster and have the skills to get the kids shots fast! This will also be between 1 - 2 hours all going as planned!
WHAT should we WEAR?
This is your time to shine and it is our job to make you feel so comfortable on set - In studio, we have a wide number of stunning maternity gowns and props. You will see most of them in the gallery on this page. If you prefer you can wear your own clothes for a more casual look - and this often works with outdoor family portraits. Before the shoot, we will send you a preparation guide which offers all the details on couple and family outfits and styling. We will also discuss this with you during our pre-shoot phone consultation.
