MATERNITY STYLE GUIDE
I am so excited to begin this journey with you! Thank you for giving me the honor of capturing this special and fleeting moment of your life! Motherhood is something that inspires me the most. In this Maternity guide you’ll find everything you’ll need to know about a session with me. I’ve included some helpful tips to help you look your best for your photo day. If there is anything I can do for you along the way, please don’t hesitate to ask! I’m here to serve you the best that I can. I can’t wait for our session together!
WHAT TO EXPECT
About a week before your session, I will send you an email with directions to your session location and where we will meet. You’ll also receive a reminder to make your final payment. If you have any questions leading up to your session, feel free to reach out!
During our time together, I will guide you and give specific instructions to posing so you won’t have to worry about what to do during our session. I take LOTS of photos to make sure I get the great shots we need, so you’ll hear my shutter snapping pretty rapidly. I aim to capture the best representation of you and the beauty motherhood!
You can expect your photos to be delivered about 2 weeks after your session. Your photos are delivered and showcased through a Pinterest-style online gallery of retouched high-resolution digital images with the rights to share on social media, make unlimited downloads on unlimited devices and print at the place of your choice.
PICK 2 OR 3 COLORS
For your couple, try picking two or three colors that blend well together! Experimenting with different shades of colors, or adding different prints or fabrics to the mix. Pinterest is always a great place to find inspiration
AVOID NEON OR BOLD COLORS
I personally love the organic feel that the neutral and earthy tones bring to the photos. It showcases the people and connection in the photo rather than the outfit. It's a completely personal choice though, please don't feel like you can't be bold.
STYLING TIPS for her
1. SAY YES TO THE DRESS
Dresses look most stunning because they really flatter your body during pregnancy, especially on camera! Long, full-length, flowy dresses look amazing on camera because they bring extra movement to the photo. Consider softer fabrics like chiffon or tulle! Or you can choose tight fitted dress shows off all your beautiful curves, it also looks stunning on camera. Regardless which style of dress you pick, pick a dress! :)
2. FLATTER YOUR FEATURES
Choosing flattering silhouettes and colors that complement your natural features is the best way to ensure you’ll love the way you look in your photos.
3. MAKE A STATEMENT
Pairing an accessory or two with your outfit can really help bring some extra dimension and pop to your images. Try a statement necklace, ear-rings, or flower crown for fun!
4. TREAT YOURSELF
This is a great time to treat yourself and go pro! Pamper yourself by getting your nails, hair, and makeup done professionally. It makes you feel beautiful, and it looks stunning on camera!
STYLING TIPS for him
FIND THE BEST FIT
Long, fitted pants or jeans and close-toed shoes are the most sophisticated and masculine looks for men. They draw attention away from his legs and feet and place it where you want it: on his hand-some face!
DON’T FORGET DETAILS
Ties, bowties, pocket squares, colored socks, suspenders, and watches are sharp compliments to any outfit for men. Although small, they add great pops of class to your photos.
I can’t wait for our session together! Hopefully you found this information helpful. If you have any questions or concerns leading up to your session, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
