Calgary Maternity Photography Session | Emily

Mar 6, 2018 | Maternity Photography Blog

Pregnancy is a time of great change. Maternity portraits are a fantastic way to capture your body’s changes as you await the arrival of the new addition to your family. My maternity sessions are fun and relaxed. I will do my very best to choose poses and lighting that are flattering to your changing body. All of my photos are digitally refined to enhance your natural beauty. My goal is to make you feel and look as radiant and beautiful as possible!

When it comes to a professional photography session, you might have some questions in mind, but I’m here to help! Here are the 5 most asked questions about maternity photography sessions:

1. When is the best time to book a maternity session?

The ideal time for a maternity session is between 30-36 weeks. We want your belly to be beautiful and round but it would best to get the shots before you are too uncomfortable.

2. Where do maternity sessions take place?

It all depends on your style and what you expect from your session. I do offer maternity photography sessions at my commercial photography studio in Calgary, AB, at an outside location in Calgary Area or at the client’s home. We will go through your goals and expectations at the pre-consultation (in person or over email/phone).

3. How long is a maternity session?

Studio sessions last about 3 hours (including professional hair&makeup service). Outdoor sessions or sessions at home last about 1 hour.

4. Are spouses and children able to participate?

Absolutely! Although the majority of the session is meant for the mom, your partner and older kids are more than welcome to join the photo session too.

5. Is there a specific wardrobe for a maternity session?

I have maternity gowns and accessories for you to try and select your favourites. If you are comfortable with nude/skin shots and/or fabric shots, I have plenty of lovely fabric and wardrobes in the studio. Lacey boy shorts and bras, as well as lingerie, add a nice touch under fabric or alone. I will respect your style and create images that you will LOVE.
