Maternity Portrait Session
Maternity Portrait Sessions are for Mommy’s over 30 weeks, 36 – 38 weeks is best. The session is at my studio in Sunninghill, and lasts around 2 hours.
Makeup & Hair
You would have to arrive with your hair done. We offer make-up services for R750 extra, and we require you to arrive an hour before your Maternity session; this must be arranged beforehand. Please check your nails and your hair; if you're not happy with them we are unable to spend the required amount of time editing them afterwards.
Gowns & Outfits
I have a Beautiful selection of maternity gowns for you to choose from for your maternity session, which we select at the start of the session. These are ours and are for your use as a part of your package.
Daddies are invited to join in on all the fun, but if Daddy has time constraints it is not a problem, he can simply pop in for parent images and we'll do the rest of the session on our own. Having Daddy here is not compulsory, it's your personal preference.
What to wear, what to bring
For your maternity shoot you must please bring your own bras. A black strap bra, white strap bra & a nude strapless bra (the nude strapless bra being the most important!!). If you want to wear the red lace dress, then red underwear would be needed. Then it will cover all the different maternity gowns I have for you to choose from.
Once we have decided on your maternity outfits I'll go through all the poses with you and correct posture and pose where necessary. If you have also chosen a Newborn sessioon, you can tell me which Newborn images you like and we can recreate similar images for you which would be unique.
After the session, I load the images onto my computer and you get to select your favourite images, your selection will then be sent off for editing.
Milkbath sessions are also on offer at an additional cost of R500, which has to be arranged in advance. I use coconut milk and fresh flowers in the bath. This session would only include Milkbath and not multiple gown changes, as the Milkbath is very time-consuming.
Parent, relatives & Sibling/s images with Baby are included, although we will not have outfits or props for older siblings. If Daddy can't attend the whole session, that's fine, he can pop in for a short time and I'll make those images a priority before continuing with the rest. Daddy can wear black pants & a black shirt or a neutral tone shirt (try to match Daddy with the colour tones you are planning for your outfits) with beige chino pants. Please do not bring any clothing with any printed logos on, thanks.
