If you would like a maternity session and photos similar to on my page here is some information to help you decide and prepare.
When: I suggest a photo session at 36 weeks. It ensures your tummy is nice and tight and obviously pregnant but enables us to have to time to reschedule should something like weather not be on our side. Of course, if you just want them later or there is a reason you think you might deliver early, we can do it earlier too. I am very flexible. 36 weeks is just a guide.
Where: Anywhere within the Gold Coast region. I do 95% of my maternity photos on location. Beaches, parks, gardens, up the mountains. Anywhere that reflects YOUR personality.
Time: Because they are usually done outside I suggest the session be an hour or so before sunset. It gives the soft pretty light you see in my photos. I compare it to being in front of a harsh spotlight (the sun) or being in front of that nice soft warm candle light in a bedroom. Which would you rather?
What to wear: I provide the fabrics and dresses you see in my photos. You can also wear your own clothing it is completely up to you. I ask every lady wear pastel or white underwear and IF possible a strapless bra. You can bring along extra things if you want something different, like a big floppy beach hat or a beautiful hair wreath or some gorgeous high heels! (I provide hair accessories as well).
Stretch marks and thing you dont like about yourself: I have had a lot of women say to me they dont want to show their tummy because they have horrid stretchmarks. Its not an issue at all! I use natural lighting and it makes them faded in the photos to start with. Some women want them completely removed when I edit the photos, and i do that as well.
If you are feeling big and yucky, I totally get that! I have had 3 children! So I make sure I pose you in a really flattering way (no double chins, no fat thighs and the list goes on) and then IF you are really worried I can do a little extra work on the computer to help a little more :-) but shhhh cos no one else will ever know. ;-)
