What better way to memorialize this momentous time in your life (and the life of your growing family) than to capture that precious glowing "Bump" and precious new baby? Maternity and Newborn photography sessions allow your family the opportunity to treasure this unique and memorable milestone forever. We want to help you document the journey of bringing a new child into your family in an elegant and meaningful way.

When Should I Schedule My Session?

Maternity sessions should be scheduled between 30-36 weeks. This is the ideal time frame for most women. Your belly will have a lovely, full shape around this time, while making sure we don’t get too close to your actual due date, just in case of surprises. For Newborns, since we don’t usually know exactly when your little one will actually arrive, what we do is pencil you in for your due date. This saves you a spot on our calendar. Once you deliver, we just need you to contact us within 72 hours of birth to let us know that your little one has arrived (the sooner we know the better). Newborns are best when photographed within the first two weeks. We do, however; welcome newborns of any age.

Before Your Maternity Session

Please avoid overly tight-fitting clothing or accessories that could leave elastic/clothing marks and moisturize your belly and any other areas you are going to show at least two hours before your session to avoid glare or staining of your clothes. Don't worry about stretch marks or discolored belly marks, etc. they are beautiful natural occurrences in pregnancy. However – if you do not want them to be present in your photos we can happily edit them out so your images are perfect. Please bring bottled water with you as many on-location areas do not have water available and most clients find themselves quite parched before their photo session is finished. We also recommend bringing a small snack for the mommy to be or any siblings in case hunger strikes! (full bellies = happy smiles!)

Before Your Newborn Session

Please try to keep your little one awake for at least two hours before their session, right before leaving home give them a nice warm bath and feed them until their little belly is full. A full baby is a happy baby! Babies with full bellies are calmer and usually sleepier, making it easier to capture sweet memories. Taking breaks for feeding is absolutely no problem! If you are traveling a distance or didn't have a chance to feed right before heading to the studio your little one may need a snack upon arrival to ensure maximum sleepiness. If you are bottle feeding please bring extra bottles and formula as needed. Please loosen the baby's diaper at least 30 minutes before your session starts to help the imprint marks to disappear. Please dress your baby in an easy to remove outfit, preferably something that does not need to be pulled over the head. A snap sleeper or zipper sleeper is highly recommended. 

Please Be On Time

This is really important. What many clients don't realize is that natural light photography is 100% dependent on the sun, So the time that you arrive directly affects the way that your images will turn out. Even if you are only 10 minutes behind, it could still have negative effects because the golden, airy, beautiful characteristics of light only happen during a very short window of time. Also, your session is allotted a specific amount of time. If you show up late, you lose some of that time — leaving us with fewer opportunities for fun photos.

The Evansville/Henderson/Owensboro area is well-known for stop lights and traffic delays, so please allow yourself plenty of extra travel time for these reasons. Of course, I realize that delays can happen beyond our control, but it's in your best interest to make the extra effort to be on time so that you don't lose any of your shooting time or great sunlight!

For Your Peace Of Mind

Having a new baby is so joyous and yet so worrisome. We always want you to have peace of mind while working with us, to help provide that there will be someone at your session that is First Aid, CPR and AED use certified for adults, children, and infants.

 Available Props

We have several props on hand, including various maternity dresses, jewelry, baskets, buckets, hats, headbands, diaper covers, and other odds and ends. You are always welcome to bring any props or items you have as well! If you have something in mind you plan on bringing, please inform us and send any photos you have so we can prepare for your shoot. Also, we love Pinterest if you find something you just love and want to recreate please let us know and we can work on fulfilling your inspiration together!
