When is the best time to book?
Maternity session are best held when mamma’s are between 31-34 weeks. I recommend booking 4-6 weeks before your maternity session window to make sure you get a place on my calendar.

Why should I have my maternity photographed?
Photographing this part of the journey can be either exciting or perhaps daunting. I promise you will never regret having this time documented in a beautiful way. I’ve heard many mamas who regret not capturing these moments before their new little one arrived. These images will be cherished by you but also by your new little one.

What should I wear?
I offer some simple wardrobe options for my maternity clients. You are more than welcome to still bring in your own pieces for your photoshoot. I’ve invested in some beautiful kimonos, robes and simple dresses for my maternity sessions to be simple, beautiful and feminine. After you book your session I will send you more details that regard styling and what to wear to your session.

Can my spouse and children come to the session?
Yes of course! While your family does not have to come, they of course are invited! This is an important time in their life and I’d love to add them into the maternity session with you.

Where do the sessions take place?
Sessions take place in my Ottawa studio. All the images you see in my portfolio and on social media were taken in my studio. All materials, props and much of the wardrobe pieces are provided for in the studio. *During the nice months of the year, maternity sessions can take place outdoors in a natural location if you prefer.

Can you tell me more about your style of maternity photography?
You can see my work throughout my website and social media to give you a great idea on my style of photography. The key ingredient is always light, followed by neutral color tones, organic textures and simplicity.

How long will the session take?
Please allow up to 1 hour for your Maternity Session.

How many images will I receive?
My Maternity Sessions include Twenty images.

Am I able to purchase digital files?
Yes, I will also guide you on where to print your digital files as it is a crucial part of the end result of your professional images.

Can my pet be in the session?
Sorry, while I love pets I can’t have them in my studio space due to allergy concerns of fellow clients.
