Maternity photography FAQ'S


Most clients book their maternity photoshoot during their second or third trimester. Booking early assures availability as the calendar tends to fill very quickly. But if you are later on than that, please give us a call and we can check on availability!

At what point in pregnancy is it best to schedule my maternity session to take place?

We recommend you have your maternity photoshoot at around 30-36 weeks (7-8 months) pregnant. At that time the belly has a nice round shape, while 28 weeks and prior the bump will not be as visible.​


I want you to feel relaxed, beautiful, and excited about your photo session, I have several beautiful boutique gown that help you feel your best and let you express yourself. I really love to capture your gorgeous form so choosing outfits that accentuate your body is recommended. Solid colors work well and any color which helps you feel most like yourself is a good choice.​

Something Special



I always recommend that we shoot your session when you’re around 32-36 weeks pregnant.

Yes, absolutely! I have several gorgeous gowns that you can use for your maternity session. They are made for these sessions because they accentuate the belly and feature trains and lines that are beautiful.

I do not offer hair and make up services, but I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment at The Blow Out Bar before your session because they offer both hair and makeup services.

The session is usually about 30-45 minutes.

We can either do the session indoors at my home studio located in Upper Arlington, or we can do them outdoors at a local park. I recommend doing them outdoors during spring, summer, fall and indoors in the winter.

Yes, absolutely! I encourage spouses to be at the session.
