PREPPING FOR YOUR PREGNANCY SESSION:
We do recommend that you get your hair and makeup done! It’s definitely not a requirement, but I do encourage it. Why you ask? Well, quite simply, we are bound to be at our best when we FEEL that we look our best and who doesn’t want to take full advantage of an excuse to go and have ourselves pampered! Umm, yes please!! :) - and hey, you deserve it!
After all, you are growing a Human...inside you... at this very moment, with ten fingers and ten toes.....isn't that incredible?!?!
LET'S TALK OUTFITS!
I recommend bringing a couple options for wardrobe to your session, which could include:
- strapless bra and underwear in neutral tone (preferably white or black)
- pre-pregnancy/pregnancy jeans
- a snug tank top in white and/or black
- lace or satin robes
Many clients utilize our Studio gowns, and other fabrics that I have available in our Client Closet and you can too!
Footwear? No worries! You will be barefoot in the studio, so not to worry about those!
Please remove watches and hair elastics from your wrists before your session so that they do not leave marks on your skin, as they tend to be distracting in photographs.
The session is concentrated on Mama-to-be and will be approximately 60 minutes in length. That said, I strongly encourage Dad to be involved too but that's only if he feels comfortable doing so! Please try and get full night’s sleep the night before your session so you can be sure that you come rested, relaxed and ready to explore this beautiful experience!
I most definitely welcome siblings for your pregnancy session!
That said, please let me know if you plan on bringing any siblings to your session! With siblings in mind, I do alter my typical workflow of the session to accommodate them and their often short attention spans. Kids get tired and bored. I get it! To help their images run as smoothly as possible, I arrange for their images to be captured at the beginning of the session so that if the littles get too restless or overly tense, parents can arrange for them to be taken home by a loved one, if needed.
Children Wardrobe: I tend to say, the more simplistic and neutral the better for kiddos. Perhaps a solid neutral colour shirt and jean or a dress in a solid, neutral colour, preferable white or cream. Also, can't find that perfect dress for your little? Our Client Closet has a selection of dresses available for tiny kiddos use during these type of sessions. Kid footwear? Nope, no need to worry, everyone will be barefoot in studio!
That's it for now! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I can't wait to work with you and capture this part of your journey! <3
