Congratulations on your pregnancy! How exciting for you and your family. Choosing to have an outdoor maternity session is extremely personal. You may not feel well through your entire pregnancy, so the thought of having someone photograph you during this time may be the last thing on your mind.
Sunset Maternity Sessions
Maternity sessions are held outdoors at Sunset. This time of day has been selected carefully and is due to the gorgeous light produced at sunset. The light is so flattering as it does not produce heavy shadows or bright light on our skin. The result is a photograph that is soft, dewy and glowing with gorgeous deep sunset tones.
What do I need to bring with me
I will bring my selection of dresses with me, you can choose your own or I am able to suggest something for you.
You are also welcome to wear your own dress if you wish to.
For the cooler months you can also bring a blanket or shawl as well.
Please wear neutral coloured lingerie if possible, however please don’t go out and buy some if you don’t have that colour, white will also be okay.
Bring some water and a snack, the session only takes an hour but sometimes it is nice to have something to drink and a quick bite to eat, especially in the hotter months.
I like to keep the preparation for your photography session nice and simple, the less you need to worry about the better and less stressed you will feel. So, I just ask that you wear flat shoes that are easy to slip off. Thongs or sandals are perfect. We wont see your shoes in any of the photos as the dresses are all long and cover your feet.
If your partner is coming along, I just ask that they dress in a plain coloured tshirt or shirt, avoid logos and slogans and brand names. Dress shorts or trousers. Smart casual attire works well.
