There are endless options for gorgeous maternity photos! What’s a mama to do when you want special memories of your pregnancy, but the thought of standing out in the heat sounds like more work than labor and delivery?
That’s easy! We take your photos in your (super comfy, air-conditioned) home!
This may be an option you haven’t considered since most maternity photos feature mamas outside somewhere beautiful. It’s perfectly ok to go against the grain and do something different – they’re your photos, after all, and you don’t have to go along with the crowd!
So what does an in-home maternity session look like?
It’s different for every family, but typically we focus on special places in your home. Often this includes the living room and the nursery, and perhaps your master bedroom as well. Photographing your maternity session at home is wonderful because you’re the most comfortable there, and it gives a more complete picture of what life is like as you await the birth of your child.
These sessions work well with mama only, mom+dad or even with your other children, too. If you’ve got toddlers, I love this option because dad can sneak off with your little one if she gets restless before we’re done.
At-home sessions include detail shots of the nursery you’ve worked so hard on, as well as tender moments between family members. For families with young kids, we pick an activity, like reading together on the couch, so I can capture authentic moments and genuine smiles. Think of it as a celebration for the baby you’re carrying, and for the life you’re living right now as you prepare to welcome your infant. You can squeeze in a little more time with your older child(ren), and your new baby will get a glimpse of life right before their arrival.
It may sound like more work to have photos taken at home – you’re probably already thinking about all the cleaning you’d need to do – but I’ve got you covered! After you book, I’ll send you checklist of what to do before your session to help you prepare. It’s great for pregnancy brain because everything you need to do is compiled in an easy-to-follow list!
