At Lifestyle Images, maternity photography is one of our favorites! Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions that our moms-to-be have before a maternity photo shoot.
Do we need to provide any props for the session?
We have plenty of anything you might need, but if there’s something special you want included (baby shoes, decorations from nursery, etc.), then we’re happy to try to include it in the session!
Do you offer a “Watch Me Grow” package?
Yes, we do! Discounts are offered when purchased with a newborn package. Call us for details at 936-231-4000.
Do you offer digital images?
Absolutely! Our maternity photography packages range from $120 – $350, and there are digital options with every package we offer.
How long will the session last?
Our maternity photography sessions generally last from 1 to 1.5 hours.
How many scenes are included in the sessions?
This depends what the mom-to-be wants, but generally we do 4 to 5 scenes with multiple poses in each scene for our maternity sessions.
What should we bring to the session?
If you’ll be using some of the maternity gowns that we offer for maternity photography sessions, then we recommend a strapless bra and boy shirts in neutral colors or in colors similar to the gowns (we’ll send you the options before your session so you can make your choices). If you’re using your own clothing, then we recommend several outfit changes in a variety of styles. You’re also welcome to bring a hair/make-up person with you to help change styling up during the session.
What should we wear to the session?
Wear comfortable clothing that you can easily change into and out of. We recommend waiting until you arrive to change into the outfits you want photos in.
When is the ideal time to book a session?
We recommend having your maternity photos taken in the 7th or 8th month of your pregnancy, or in some cases earlier if your baby belly has already become very prominent. We recommend booking your sessions 30 days in advance to secure your session.
Where do the sessions take place?
This is largely up to the mom-to-be. We have a studio with acreage for outdoor photos, but we can also do on-location photography at a location of your choosing.
Who may participate in the session?
There’s no additional charge for significant others and siblings to participate in the session. If siblings are being included, we’ve found it to be beneficial to have another adult on hand to help with the kids while mom is taking photos on her own. If you want to include extended family, there is an additional session fee. If including multiple people beyond your significant other and kids, please keep in mind that we have a small studio, so space is limited for sessions done at our location.
