Raglan Maternity shoot

Ever wondered how a Maternity shoot works? When to book? Where’s the best place to go? Then read on for a little more about my Maternity shoot process!

Maternity sessions can be booked anytime from 28 weeks (depending on bump size!) and I recommend booking no later than 37 weeks. Maternity sessions are typically done in an outdoors location or at your home, they’re around 1 hour in duration, longer if little people are also involved. You don’t need to decide on a location right now, but in our pre-shoot consult I’ll ask you what you’d like to achieve from the shoot and we can go from there. I’ve been photographing in the Hamilton and Waikato Area for over 15 years, so know the best seasonal locations and what looks best for bumps!

Great photoshoots don’t happen by accident so I love to be involved from start to finish so you get the most out of your investment. Upon booking, I’ll send you a questionnaire to find out more about your family as well as my best tips and tricks on how to prepare for the shoot and what to expect on the day. Styling can really help lift your images and I have a styling guide to get you started.

I hope that helps to begin to demystify the Maternity shoot process!
