There are always tons of things to think about when prepping for your maternity photos, so I wanted to talk about some of the questions I get most commonly asked! Like…..
Can my husband be included in my maternity photos?
Of course!!! I always make time during the session for photos of both you and your hubby and just you alone. Pregnancy is such a special, magical time for both you and your husband together and for the relationship of you and your body- so I like to allow time during the session to capture both aspects of these special times!
Can I bring an extra outfit?
Yes, definitely! I always offer the option for an outfit change during my sessions. I think it allows for more diversity of the photos – so yes!!
Can I bring props to the session? If so, what type of props do you recommend?
I don’t always recommend props for every session, but maternity sessions are different. I think props such as a letter board, baby shoes, baby name plate, onesie, stuffed animal or any other sentimental item can add a lot to any maternity session and make the session that much more special and personal!
Do you recommend multiple locations for the session?
The short answer – no. Driving to multiple locations during a session takes away a lot of time that could be spent taking photos and it adds the extra layer of complexity such as traffic and parking (again). I always recommend selecting a location that we can utilize different spots within the same location for the photos. If you can’t decide where to do photos, ask me! That’s what I’m here for! 🙂
I hope this was super helpful for you! Now, enjoy these photos from Lindsay & Garrett’s maternity session where we utilized all of these tips!
