Chicago Suburbs Maternity, Newborn & Baby Photographer | Little Pictures Photography

MATERNITY SESSION INFORMATION 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION?

The ideal time to shoot these sessions is between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy, but they can be done right up until your due date. During this time is when your baby belly will be big enough to show well in the photos without you being too uncomfortable.

WHAT'S THE LOCATION OF MATERNITY SESSION? 

Your Session can take place either at the studio, or on-location depending on the vision you prefer. Many clients choose at the studio experience if they prefer a more intimate session with the ability to do a bit more showing off of the belly. If you decide for outdoor session I will suggest the location depending on current season. If you would like to be photographed on the beach or in any other unique place, Little Pictures Photography will be more than happy to fulfill your need and make dreams come true. A travel fee of  $50 will apply outside of a 15 mile radius from 60440.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION? 

Maternity Sessions usually last 1-2h. You are welcome to include spouses/partners/children within your Session, or have it simply revolve around just you for once. If you do include others than make sure that they wear outfit coordinating to your outfit. During the session Little Pictures Photography will capture images of mum-to-be on her own, with the husband/partner as well as with children, if there are any. There is no additional fee to include immediate family images. Mum-to-be can change outfits 1-2 times with no additional fee as well. 

WHAT TO WEAR DURING MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION? 

1. The clothing should allow to show off your baby belly bump. I recommend Maxi Dress: it’s incredibly comfortable, it’s also looks amazing on any pregnant body because it’s incredibly flattering. It covers up anything you don’t want shown, but can also be pulled against the belly to show off your adorable baby bump.

2. Since the main focus in your maternity shoot is your bump, then don’t let anything take attention away form that, like a pattern or print. Wear solid colors for your bump to stand out the most.

3. Keep accessories to a minimum: Photos should be focused on you and your bump so either keep jewelry and accessories simple or use them to accentuate your bump.

4. Shoes: We recommend wearing stylish but comfortable shoes (something low profile). Most of the maternity dresses reach the ground and your shoes will be covered.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER THE SESSION? 

About 2-3weeks after your session, you will get an email that contains a link to download edited pictures. All

images will be stored and archived 60 days.
