I recommend scheduling your maternity session for between 32-36 weeks. During this time, you’ll have a nicely defined baby bump and be comfortably able to move between standing, sitting, and laying down poses.
Maternity sessions are 1 hour in length.
Maternity sessions can take place in my studio located in Lake in the Hills, IL (from October through April) or outside at some of the local parks from (May through September).
Bugs: Summer bugs can be horrible. I always have bug spray you can borrow, but I know some families have their preferences on sprays. If that's you, please remember to bring bug spray for yourself and family.Weather: If there is dangerous weather, I will contact you no later than 8am that morning, and reschedule for an upcoming date. We do not reschedule unless there is bad rain (i.e. drizzle doesnt deter us) or other dangerous weather such as lightening etc.
I do love including family photos – the love and connection you and your family feels towards your baby tells an amazing story, and you’ll want to remember it.
Yes, I do have a studio collection of several maternity gowns that you are more than welcome to borrow during your session. You can also wear your own outfit if you'd prefer as well.Here's a link to my Facebook Album of gowns I have in my studio collection:https://www.facebook.com/pg/image127/photos/?tab=album&album_id=740587236088695
