What to Expect from your Philadelphia Maternity session
From Philadelphia’s Award Winning Maternity Photographer
Your baby’s arrival is almost here, and my Philadelphia studio is here to help you celebrate this special time in both of your lives. As an award – winning photographer, I strive to bring out the beauty and strength in motherhood. It is your day! I am here to show you the inner goddess and your strength of creating life. I mean, is there any other super power as creating life?
I want to share with you everything you need to know about an in-studio maternity photography session with me.
So here is what to expect from your maternity session in my Philadelphia Studio.
Let’s have a Consultation!
All of my mamas are different, you all have different tastes, looks, styles, passions, life experiences, hobbies – I can go on and on. I want your portraits to be a reflection of who you are, it’s expriences time to celebrate you!
This is a great time for us to explore hiring make up and hair. So you can really enjoy the day and be treated as a queen. As an option, you can have Kim from Pretty Powerful Beauty come into the studio and pamper you as she does so well. Your beauty session is about 60-90 minutes and you will feel absolutely gorgeous! Kim’s services are an add on directly through her. I love when my moms do this, because once baby is here, when will you go get pampered again?
I like to have a consult with my moms on the phone so we can discuss your vision, this also gives me a mental vision of what we can prepare for during your session. I find the consultation to be so helpful in creating your final vision. Ready to set up a consultation with me? You can do this here: I WANT TO CELEBRATE ME
Plan What You Wear!
Next, we want to select your wardrobe from my studio gown collection. You can choose a variety of maternity depending on your package selection that you can wear during your in studio maternity session. My Philadelphia studio has a wide collection of maternity gowns hand made from designers all across the world. Styles include: slim fit, A-line, open belly, lace, chiffon, tulle, mermaids, body suits, crop tops, bralettes, hats and we also have some jewelery to finish your look. I also have beautiful fabrics to choose from in a variety of colors and fabrics that we can design with or just toss. So much to choose from in a variety of beautiful colors for you.
I can help guide you along the way and help pick what would compliment you the best.
During Your Session
It’s time to enjoy the day! Your in-studio maternity photography session will take place in my Philadelphia, Pennsylvania studio. I will make sure everything is ready for you.
If you are having make up done in the studio, you will arrive earlier to meet with our beauty consultant. You can enjoy some time of pampering.
We will work through a combination of set ups, from simple to more complex, changing lights along the way. If we are capturing nude photography, we always finish with those. Your comfort is always my priority, so if there is anything you do not like on you or you want to change, don’t be shy, tell me!
You can certainly include your husband and kids during your in-studio maternity session. I will be happy to work out the details. I have some fun ways to get toddlers to cooperate during our time.
When will I see my Maternity Photos?
I love this step of the process!! Now I get to sit down and edit your images. For the next few weeks that follow your session, I will edit your gallery of images.
Once your images are ready, I will deliver your gallery. I love to set up a consultation time to discuss how we can make these beautiful images displayed all over your home for you to admire. We can create albums, memory books and more. Let’s face it, once baby arrives your time is spent with baby snuggles and I do not want your beautiful portraits sitting on your computer in a file that one day you will get to. I want you to cherish your images and remember that moment.
When your products arrive I will hand check all of your beautiful heirloom products and wrap them up and you can pick it up, choose to have it delivered (for additional fees) or I can mail it to you.
Some last thoughts
Diana, a studio session is not my thing, I want to be outside! That’s great! We can discuss this as well. Contact me and let’s talk through your ideas. I have plenty of locations throughout the city of Philadelphia that I love to have my moms photographed.
