A maternity photographer is a professional who specializes in taking photographs of expectant mothers. Maternity Photographer Services typically have experience photographing pregnant women and know how to position them and light them to look their best.
Here are some frequently asked questions about maternity photography:
1) How far in advance should I book a maternity photographer?
It is recommended that you book your session for 3-4 months. This will allow you to have plenty of time to find the perfect photographer and reserve your spot.
2) How long will the session last?
The average session lasts anywhere from 1-2 hours. This depends on several factors such as how many people are being photographed, the age(s) of the children, how cooperative they are, etc.
3) What is included in the session fee?
The session fee includes the time and talent of the photographer, pre-session consultation (by phone or in person), travel to and from the session location (within 25 miles of the photographer’s studio), post-processing of the images, an online viewing/ordering gallery, and a $100 print credit.
5) What should we wear?
It is recommended that you wear clothes that are comfortable and fit well. You should also avoid wearing clothes with busy patterns or logos. Solid colors tend to look best in photographs. You may want to bring a few different outfit options on the session day.
6) How long will it take to receive our photos?
It typically takes 4-6 weeks to receive your edited images. Then, your photographer will provide you with a link to an online gallery where you can view and download your images.
7) Do you offer digital files?
Yes, all of the edited images from your session will be provided to you as high-resolution digital files. In addition, these files will be delivered via an online gallery.
8) What is the best time of day to schedule a maternity session?
The best time of day to schedule a maternity session is typically 1-2 hours before sunset. This will allow you to take advantage of the softer, natural light available.
9) Do you have any tips on preparing for my session?
Yes! Here are a few tips:
-Wear comfortable, fitted clothing.
-Choose outfits that compliment your body type and the style of session you are looking for.
-Bring a few different outfit options to choose from.
-Make sure you have eaten something before the session so that you are not feeling hungry or lightheaded.
-If you are breastfeeding, it is a good idea to pump before the session to avoid discomfort during the shoot.
In conclusion, these are just a few of the many questions that you may have about maternity photography. Be sure to consult with your photographer before your session to ensure that you are both on the same page and understand what to expect.
