Hello, lovely moms-to-be! As a maternity and newborn photographer in Victoria, Texas, I am thrilled to capture the beauty and joy of this special time in your life. Whether you're glowing with excitement or feeling a little camera-shy, I'm here to ensure your maternity session is as memorable and comfortable as possible.

Why Choose a Maternity Session?

Maternity sessions are a beautiful way to celebrate the journey of pregnancy. These photos will be cherished memories, showcasing the anticipation and love surrounding your growing family. Plus, it's a beautiful way to pamper yourself and feel like the stunning mom you are!

The Best Time to Book Your Session

The ideal time to book your maternity session is when you are between 28-34 weeks pregnant. Why this window?

  • Comfort: During these weeks, you are usually the least uncomfortable. Your baby bump is beautifully pronounced, but you're not yet dealing with the full weight and potential discomfort of the final weeks.

  • Early Arrivals: Babies have a way of arriving on their own schedule, sometimes as early as 35 or 36 weeks. By scheduling your session a bit earlier, we can avoid any last-minute rushes and ensure you have stunning photos to cherish.

Outfits That Make You Shine

Not everyone wants to invest in a gown they'll only wear once. That's why I offer a variety of beautiful outfits for your session. From elegant dresses to flowy gowns, there's something for every style. If you prefer, you can bring your own favorite outfit. Here are some tips to help you decide:

  • Comfort is Key: Choose outfits that make you feel beautiful and comfortable.

  • Flowy Dresses and Gowns: These are perfect for creating a dreamy, ethereal look.

  • Form-fitting Attire: Consider fitted dresses or tops to highlight your beautiful baby bump.

  • Layers and Textures: Adding layers, like a shawl or a cardigan, can create depth and interest in your photos.

What to Bring: Your Essentials Checklist

To ensure your session goes smoothly, here's a handy checklist of what to bring:

  • Heels or Barefoot: Heels can add elegance, but being barefoot can add a natural and relaxed feel to your photos. The choice is up to you.

  • Jewelry and Accessories: Think statement necklaces, earrings, or hairpieces to add a touch of glamour.

  • Makeup and Hair: Having your makeup and hair professionally done can make a big difference in your photos.

  • Water and Snacks: Staying hydrated and having a light snack will keep your energy up.

Tips for a Radiant Session

  • Get a Healthy Glow: A light tan can give you that perfect glow. Consider getting a safe, natural-looking tan a few days before your session.

  • Hydrate: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your shoot. Hydrated skin looks more radiant and healthy.

  • Rest Well: A good night's sleep before your session will help you feel refreshed and vibrant.

  • Pamper Yourself: Get a manicure and a pedicure, or do it yourself!
