One of our favourite and most rewarding parts of our job as a maternity photographer is working with parents-to-be during their photo shoot during such an exciting time. We love being a part of your journey and helping you to capture and celebrate this special occasion, whether this is your first child or a new addition to your family.
In this post we will give you an insight into what to expect during your pregnancy photoshoot and explain just how simple the how process of creating your portraits really is.
What to Expect During your Professional Maternity Photo Shoot
When contacting us and arranging your photo session, we will discuss with you the items and props that we have at our Auckland studio which are completely at your disposal. These include a selection of fabrics and accessories that add a touch of class and sophistication to your portraits. You will be shown these during your session, or in your pre-portrait consultation should you wish to arrange one.
Of course, in addition to the items available in-studio, you are encouraged to bring with you any of your own items with you. These can also include gifts you may have received from family and friends for the baby, such as booties and outfits. These are perfect for creating a maternal theme to your portraits.
Our creative photographic team will work closely with you during your session, assisting you with everything from posing through to providing advice during your image viewing. If you have ideas in mind for your portraits, we’d love to hear them! Often clients will bring along a Pinterest board of ideas which they may have found. If you are unsure, we are of course at your disposal and are happy to suggest ideas and concepts.
The best time to book your maternity photoshoot is around the 30 – 32-week mark. By this stage, most women have a tummy shape perfect for their portraits. Some women, depending on how their pregnancy progresses, may choose to come in sooner, and others later. Just be sure not to leave your booking too late! If you have any queries as to the timing of your session, you are welcome to contact us to discuss your requirements.
The final step of your journey with us is the selection of your favourite portraits from your session, which occurs during your image viewing. In addition to your image selection, you are welcome to select from our range of beautiful colour effects available. These include gorgeous black and white and sepia options in addition to many more. You can discuss these possibilities, in addition to any retouching requirements you may have with our team who are more than happy to accommodate.
