Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is such an incredibly special time in your life and I am so excited to capture it.
Please review information on what to expect from your session and fill out my short questionnaire. Thanks! Kayla.
what to expect
When is the best time for maternity photos?
Between 32 and 36 weeks and around 30 weeks if you are carrying multiples.
Can my husband and other children join me for our session?
Definitely! I actually encourage this. I want to capture this special time, not only for you, but for your entire family.
What do I wear to a maternity session?
I recommend wearing a dress that fits snug around your belly. Solid colors photograph best, however; patterns can be beautiful as long as they don't clash with the outfit of your significant other.
Where do maternity sessions take place?
Maternity sessions take place at one of my preferred Madison area locations. However, if there is a certain place that is special to you that you would like your maternity photos done at, I would love to hear about it.
How many photos should i expect from my session?
Maternity sessions include 20 high resolution edited images for you to download.
When will we get to see our photos?
Your photos will be on my gallery within 2-3 weeks of your session date.
Do you offer a discount for Maternity + Newborn sessions?
Yes! If you book your Maternity and Newborn session together, you will receive $50 off your Newborn session fee.
