On location maternity photography for expecting mothers in and around Tallahassee. If you are looking for high-end portrait photographers in the North Florida and South Georgia area then learn more about working with me.
Maternity photography sessions can take place in your home, at a local park, or anywhere around Tallahassee, Florida. Many of my clients have worked hard to have a baby. These sessions help you remember the sweet season of life for both yourself, and your future children. Although pregnancy seems long when you're in the midst of it, it's really such a short time in the grand scheme of things and most mamas only experience it a few times. You'll always be glad you had your maternity portrait made and documented the love and excitement between you.
Q: When is the best time to do my maternity photos?
A: For first babies usually between 32-35 weeks. For second, third+ babies, closer to 30 weeks. We want a nice round belly, and a mom who is still feeling pretty good. Much past 35 weeks and there may be some puffiness and general soreness from your baby who is packing on the weight those last few weeks.
Q: When should I contact you to schedule my maternity photos?
A: Now! If you have a due date, now is the time to schedule! I can't stress this enough. My calendar books several months in advance so as soon as you're ready, we can book you onto my calendar.
Q: How long is a maternity session?
A: Typical maternity sessions are 45 minutes to 1 hour long depending on how mom is feeling. If we have outfit changes, or need to drive to a different spot within our location/park, we'll need a bit more time than that. I move quickly so that we can get a lot of variety in your final gallery of images.
Q: How many photos can I expect from our session?
A: About 50
Q: I'm not always loving how I look right now. What if I'm puffy the day of our session?
A: I've got you!!! I promise to use flattering angles, guided poses, and gentle editing when needed so that you'll see you the way I see you. You're beautiful mama, even if you're not feeling it right now. Years from now you'll look at your maternity photos and see the beauty of when you were carrying your baby, and you'll have nothing but thankfulness for what your body went through to bring him or her here.
Q: What do I wear?
A: Once you book your session, I'll send you a prep guide with suggestions on this. Also, when you book with me, you have access to me to run ideas by. I often have clients who will send me a picture of the outfits they're considering. You're also welcome to bring several with you so that we can decide the day of your session, or change outfits during the session for more variety. I'm always pinning great maternity looks which you can see HERE.
Q: What if baby arrives early and we can't do our maternity photos?
A: We can easily convert your session into a newborn session!
Q: I want to do photos of maternity, newborn, and then some of our baby's first year. Do you offer a discount?
A: YES! That's exactly what the Collective Membership was designed for!
Q: What if if rains?
A: If 24 hours before your session, there is greater than 50% chance of rain during your session time, we'll talk about options and come up with a plan together. This usually means we'll either reschedule or move to an indoor location. We can't control the weather and there's no charge if this happens.
Q: I don't know where we want to take our photos. Can you help us decide? Make recommendations?
A: I definitely can! Family and baby photography sessions can take place anywhere around Tallahassee. We have some beautiful parks all around town and they photograph wonderfully. I also love when families choose to have their session in the comfort of their home. I even wrote an article about my favorite locations which you can read HERE.
Q: We live outside of Tallahassee (Thomasville, Crawfordville, Valdosta, South GA, elsewhere in North FL) can we still hire you for photos?
A: Yes, I'd be honored to work with you. If you live further than 30 minutes outside of Tallahassee, I ask that maternity clients travel to Tallahassee for their sessions. If you'd like me to come to you and you're (the coast, north of Thomasville, Valdosta, etc) there will be a custom travel fee depending on your distance from Tallahassee. This works out to approximately $125 per hour of travel).
Q: I'm dreaming of maternity photos at the beach. Do/can you do these?
A: Yes! Pricing would be custom just as in the scenario above, based on distance from Tallahassee. Also, there are a few locations in town that can give a similar look to the beach if you have your heart set on photos in or around water. HERE is a session done in Tallahassee at a local park. Occasionally I travel to the beach and will take on clients while I'm there. If so, I'll post these dates or send an email to newsletter subscribers/clients.
