WHEN IS A BEST TIME TO DO A PREGNANCY PHOTO SHOOT?

Between 28-34 weeks of pregnancy is the best time.

WHEN TO GET IN TOUCH?

We suggest to get in touch with the studio at least one months prior your preferred date to ensure availability.

We will try our best to fit you into the schedule at the most convenient date.

CONSULTATION

All maternity sessions are tailored specifically to you, and include a consultation session with Kamila. She will discuss ideas on posing, lighting, wardrobe, and style. We will work closely with you and learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that your vision becomes a reality. 

MAY I BRING MY HUSBAND / MY OTHER KIDS WITH ME?

Your husband is welcome to join you during the session. If you have older kids, we're happy to take some family pictures as well.

DO YOU PROVIDE WARDROBE?

Newborn Session Preparation Instructions

  • Mothers who are nursing should try to avoid eating anything spicy (i.e., pizza, hot sauce, etc.) that might upset the baby’s tummy for 24 hours preceding the scheduled session.

  • Please avoid caffeine the morning of the session as well.

  • Parents are encouraged to keep their baby awake for 1 to 2 hours before the session to ensure he or she is sleepy for the session. This is very important: without this, too much time will be spent getting them to sleep and there won’t be as much time for photographing them.

  • Baby should have  a full belly to start the session. Parents should feed their baby immediately before they leave for the studio or upon arrival.

  • Dress the baby in loose clothes to avoid any lines on their skin – a simple sleeper is best. Avoid “onesies” or anything else that must be pulled off over the baby’s head.

  • Bring a pacifier – they can be very helpful during the session.

  • During the session, parents should sit back, relax and take advantage of this time to rest. 

  • Carry your  baby into the studio in their car seat.   

  •  If bottle feeding or supplementing else bring extra bottles.

  • If nursing bringing extra pumped bottles can be a great help! 

  • While Kamila does have snacks and drink for clients parents are welcome to bring drinks and snacks for the long morning!  

  • If possible make arrangements for the older siblings to arrive at the studio later when we are ready for their portion of the session.
