Ella + Emmy Photography | Maternity Session Frequently Asked Questions

When should I book my maternity session?

We recommend booking your maternity session at the start of the second trimester so that we can find a date between 27-34 weeks along that works with your schedules. 27-34 weeks tends to be a perfect timeframe for photos as the bump is typically nice and noticeable, while not getting so close to your due date that any walking or extended standing is difficult.

What should I wear?

You are welcome to any of the dresses in our client closet! If any dresses catch your eye, we will schedule a day/time to come to you or for you to come into the studio for a fitting. Of course, you are also welcome to wear your own dress/outfit! These memories are a part of your story, so we want to do everything possible to have the images from your maternity session bring a smile to your face for years to come. We typically recommend 1-2 outfits to make the most of the session time and are happy to make recommendations/suggestions!

Where will the session take place?

Depending on the look/feel you are envisioning (studio, beach, open field, trees, etc.), we have multiple location recommendations available and are happy to send over sample images from each location.

Can my partner/family join?

Absolutely! You are more than welcome to include your partner and children in the maternity session and we are more than happy to help you choose outfits if needed. Please limit to immediate family, four-legged family members included!

Can I book my maternity and newborn sessions together?

Of course! When booking both maternity and newborn sessions together, $50 is deducted from the newborn session fee. Both session fees are due at booking and then you would choose any number of digital images and/or products that you would like to purchase separately after viewing the images from each individual session.

We would love to help document this exciting chapter in your lives!
