Maternity Session Tips

This post on maternity tips for our clients will help you prepare for your session!

Even though pregnancies are anything but easy, considering bed rest, ultra sounds, the works, when we think about each growing soul, I get a little lump in my throat and my heart soars a bit. The entire birthing process is nothing short of amazing which is why the maternal bond develops long before baby arrives. Photographing your baby bump is a special way to capture that pregnancy glow so that you can have something to reflect how you looked and felt being pregnant with the most precious gift!

NE Wyoming based photographer Deanna Phoenix knows a thing or two about capturing the joy of pregnancy. She has an eye for unique settings and uses light and creative posing to showcase the essence of her subjects. Deanna also specializes in child and family photography, to continue working with her clients as their families grow! Here is Deanna's favorite tips for a successful maternity photo shoot.

1. GOAL: Capture this special time in your life in a natural, fresh, comfortable and fun way. Family members are welcome to join in your session as well.

2. TIMING: I recommend scheduling your baby bump shoot sometime around 32-35 weeks – perfect timing to show off your belly before you won’t feel like showing it off anymore.

3. OUTFITS: Color & comfort is key. Pattern is also a good way to add an element of pop to a photo. I often tell families to pick 3-4 colors that tie everyone together and the same goes for a baby bump shoot – An example: navy, turquoise, yellow and lime green. Sometimes we even incorporate the colors of the nursery as a starting point. I also recommend wearing something more on the form-fitting side – a dress, a long skirt with a fitted tank, statement necklace, and a bright cardigan. We want to see the bump but also be comfortable doing it. Comfort translates through the camera, it's imperative you are not uncomfortable with your selected wardrobe. Although we love to feature bare skinned photos, it is never required if you are not interested! If you need help styling, we recommend a couple local boutiques that would be happy to assist in your wardrobe for your session.

4. LOCATION: I prefer to capture your beauty with natural light. Typically our sessions would be scheduled either early in the day or closer to sunset to capture the best light possible. Being a full service studio, we do offer our indoor sessions as well. Styling and scheduling is the same for indoor sessions.

***Vendor Highlight*** J-Cakes

Occasionally we like to feature some of our outstanding vendors who provide exceptional service, and go above and beyond for our lovely clients. We couldn't be as efficient or look quite as great without these businesses who support us.  

 

On the blog tonight is our favorite local cake decorator, J-cakes, owned by Jessica Rennick. We have given her several orders over the last year, and each and everytime we have been astonished at the level of creativity, detail and talent that goes into her work. Jessica always exceeds our expectations ten fold, and our cake smashes wouldn't look as cute as they do without her hardwork. Her commitment to perfection and customer service is prime!

 

In the spirit of small businesses supporting one another, we'd like to refer all our clients, and readers to contact Jessica with J-cakes for your upcoming cake/cupcake needs!!! You will never be disappointed!
