How to prepare for your maternity session | Richmond Hill, GA

If you are pregnant and want to take maternity photos, this post is for you! Maternity Photography sessions in Savannah and surrounding areas are one of my favorite photography sessions to create in our Richmond Hill photography studio or surrounding areas.

I remember finding out I was pregnant. I took three pregnancy test with each child because I just couldn't believe the miracle. From the moment that little extra line appears on the test, your life begins to present it’s fair share of little surprises, right? 

Morning sickness or for some even 24-7 sickness in the first couple of weeks\ months, then come tiny flutters that make you forget all about the not-so-good mornings. Do you remember your first ultrasound appointment? The first time you heard that little heartbeat? It just keeps getting better. Your favorite jeans don't fit anymore. You run to the bathroom every other hour. In fact, you’d sleep if you didn’t have to take several trips to the potty every night. Your baby bounces around in your belly, and your dreams of holding your little bundle of joy become so vivid.

I can tell you that pregnancy was one of the most magical times of my life! You may not always feel beautiful, but you are!

I did not have maternity pictures taken because maternity photography was not a thing at the time (I am from Germany) I was pregnant with my children. Let’s make sure you remember this amazing time; your children will thank you for it!

Here are some tips on how to prepare for your maternity session:

1. If you decide to wear your own outfit, instead of using the gowns from my studio wardrobe, make sure to know that tight pants and socks, leave dents on the skin. Stay form-fitting but comfy for your shoot.

2. Keep your nails natural. Nail-design changes just like clothing styles do.

3. Consider booking a hair & make-up artist for your session, even if you’re a super-natural style Mama. Treat yourself; you deserve it! Let a make-up artist bring out all of your natural beauty with photo-ready makeup and a perfect hairstyle for your shoot! Most of my customers go on a fancy lunch\dinner date with their husband after their session. Not only do they feel super pretty because of their hair and make-up but I make them feel like a supermodel as well :).

4. Tell me what you’re comfortable with. If you’re belly shy…say so! We have ways of making sure your belly looks stunning without showing any skin. If you don’t like your stretch marks, c-section scar, linea nigra (you know the dark line along the navel line?), or anything else, there are ways to remove them. They should not be the reason not to have fantastic belly pictures!

5. Do your research. PINTEREST is my best friend! Also look up my Instagram and point me in the right direction. Don’t be afraid to make suggestions. I am open to ideas; I like to get inspired, and I love to grow!
