Pregnancy is simply beautiful. The way the light hugs each curve, the way you glow and radiate love for this little person you have yet to meet. Your body is nurturing a life inside you, and only you can bring this baby into the world. Mama, you are a super hero and should be celebrated! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture this precious moment in time, documenting the love and joy for your baby before they even arrive.
Maternity sessions are generally booked between 30-34 weeks pregnant to ensure a nice round bump. It is recommended to make your reservation 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability around this photography window. A small deposit reserves and guarantees your preferred date and time. Upon booking, we dive into the consultation and session planning, going over your taste and preferences.
The best location for a maternity session is in the studio to access all the props, accessories, and wardrobe. The studio is where all the magic happens and where I use my expertise in lighting and angles to create stunning portraits. Styling can be anything from causal, whimsical with gowns, to boudoir – or all three! The best part, it’s up to you. We can plan a session with just you and/or include your partner and any ‘littles’. Well behaved fur-babies are welcome. After all, they are part of the family too.
Casual, whimsical and even boudoir sessions can also be booked in your home. In-home maternity sessions give it a more personal touch using various spaces in your home to create a stunning portfolio of images with meaning behind each one. Having your maternity session at home gives you a unique opportunity to re-create some of them once baby arrives, if in-home newborn photography is also booked. If your home has a special meaning, this may be a great option for you.
Outdoor sessions are weather permitting with various locations around the GTA we can explore. Popular locations include The Beaches, Humber Bay Park (thecasinoapps.com), High Park, and Evergreen Brickworks to name a few. I am constantly on the look out for new and unique locations, and open to exploring pretty parks near your home. This will add special meaning to your photos + make it uber convenient for you.
