Preparing for your Maternity session

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about your Lloydminster maternity photography session. Please take a moment to read through the answers and don’t hesitate to contact Elisha Hawryluk to book your maternity session today !

When should I schedule my maternity photography session ?

For most women, I recommend the session be between 30 and 34 weeks. We want to be sure your baby belly is really showing, but not wait until the very end when most women are uncomfortable. Often, babies arrive earlier than your due date, so we don’t want to miss the chance of photographing you at this beautiful stage in your life.

What should I bring for my maternity photography session?

The following are merely suggestions, if you don't have something, don't worry! We recommend a solid color button up shirt, Black, nude, and/or white bras(preferably strapless) and underwear, your pre-pregnancy jeans, a pretty dress and any other outfit you feel confident in.

We also have a great variety of maternity gowns, fabrics, and bandeau tops that are kept in studio, to which you will have full access to during your session.

How long does the maternity photography session take?

Maternity sessions are typically 1 hour in length. We capture a variety of images of mom alone and encourage dad to come along for a few shots as well. If scheduling to have your hair and makeup done, that is usually an additional 30-45 minutes.

How do I prepare for my session?

 We want you to look your best as these are photos that you and your children with cherish for generations. Be sure not to wear tight fitting clothes, or socks that may leave lines on your skin. Moisturize leading up to your session so that your photos will truly show your skins beautiful pregnancy glow! Don't forget the hands and feet! If you can't reach your toes, take this as an opportunity to treat yourself to a mani/pedi, you deserve it!

What if I have a blemish or stretch marks ?

Blemishes, minor stretch marks, bruises and scratches should not be cause for worry. We retouch all of your images before you ever see them and these imperfections are not a problem.

What do most clients purchase after their maternity photography session?

I offer a few different digital collections for you to choose from, large prints and canvas' are also available a la carte.

How do I select my images and products ?

The best images will be selected for viewing within 21 days of your session. Your proofs will be available for you to view on a private password protected gallery. Your gallery will be available for 7 days during which time you can make the image selections for your chosen product. If you have not placed your order within that time, there will be a $50 fee to have it republished for an additional 7 days.
