What to Expect During Your Maternity Session | DMV Maternity Photographer


Most soon-to-be mothers I speak to are either absolutely gung-ho about their maternity pictures or they’re a little apprehensive about the idea. On one hand, this is a monumental moment! You’re with child, you’re radiant, you’re excited and whether this is your first child, or you are adding another to the bunch, life is seriously about to change. On the other, you’re a little uncomfortable with your changing body and the thought of standing in front of a camera seriously freaks you out.
I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing to be nervous about. Your maternity photographs are images that you will cherish forever and ever. They’re pictures that your friends and family will absolutely adore; pictures that your child and your child’s child will look at in the future and think, “Wow!” Trust me!
In other words: don’t let any qualms you’ve got about your body — whatever they may be — get in the way of photographs that’ll be admired for many years down the road. My goal is to make sure you look and feel absolutely gorgeous from beginning to end.

During your maternity session, we’ll take a variety of photographs of you. As long as you’re comfortable, we’ll get photographs of you laying down, sitting, standing and leaning; all in our signature lifestyle way. Some will hone in on that adorable baby bump, some may be silhouettes of your frame and others will capture the bond between you, your significant other, and your children.

We all know that Mom and her baby are the stars of the show when it comes to a maternity session, but there’s no denying the sweetness or importance of having the entire family in the frame, too. I love capturing the raw, candid moments between parents and siblings, and pressing pause on a moment in time that would otherwise go by so quickly and without preservation.

After your session is officially booked, you’ll receive more information and guidance on topics such as what to wear, locations, how to prep your home, and pets!
