• • • Where will the maternity session take place?
Sessions can be done everywhere, like fun and unique locations outdoors that include parks, fields, farms, and urban downtown settings. I love to bring out your personality in a maternity session so I am up for anything that you'd like to do! If the weather doesn’t allow for an outdoor session, your home is an option as well. But keep in mind that clients who live more than 30kms away from H7E0E3 will be billed additional charges for travel at $1/km that will be added to your final invoice.
• • • When is the best time to book a maternity session?
Maternity sessions are best held between 32-36 weeks into your pregnancy. During this stage your belly has a beautiful shape
and you should be feeling great!
• • • Can I include my significant other/children?
Absolutely and I recommend that you do! It will make your session that much more special having the most important people in your life!
• • • Can I get photos without showing my bare belly?
Of course! You are the client. My goal is to make you as comfortable as possible.
• • • If I do show my belly, what about stretch marks?
Part of the cost of professional portrait session is hand editing of every image. I can remove stretch marks or blemishes if you desire. Of I leave them if you would prefer to, as a badge of honor.
• • • What if I’m interested in maternity and another session you offer?
You’re not alone. Most of my clients prefer this. I have great packages to suit what you are looking for.
• • • What should I wear during my maternity session?
Choose something flattering and that you feel comfortable with. You will want to sit down, be able to move, walk, and feel your best! Keep the patterns to a minimum. Solids look best and do not detract attention away from that beautiful belly. We can incorporate a couple of outfit changes. I can also offer you wraps and beautiful gowns. Just let me know!
• • • How long after the session can we expect the images?
You will receive a link to view your galley at about 2-4 weeks after the session. However, I will provide you with one sneak peek image shortly after, so you have something to share with your family and friends immediately. I usually post it on my Facebook page and I encourage all my clients to share links of the image, comment and tag!
• • • What is a proofing gallery?
It’s a temporary online gallery that will display the best photos from your session. These photos will be hand edited and creatively enhanced and are only for choosing the ones you’d like to buy. Copying or making screen shots of these images violates copyright law and is illegal. Please note: The proofing gallery is only made available for a period of 15 days. Please ensure that all orders are placed before the gallery expires. A fee of $25 will be charged to re-activate the gallery for 7 more days.
• • • Do you photograph during the weekends?
Yes I do. For weekend sessions, you will be charged an additional fee of $50.
• • • Do you have a referral program?
Of course! Being a small business owner, I rely heavily on referrals. For every referral that books and completes a session with me, you get a $50 credit towards your next session. Each new client also receives a $50 discount to use in their first session. The best part is that there is NO limit! You get a $50 credit for every referral you send our way that books and completes a session, that means if you refer 4 people, you get $200 in credits!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns!
