To some, the idea of maternity images is as exciting as the idea of having a baby itself as you are captivated by the glow and radiance that pregnancy has bestowed upon you. To others, it is a questionable one as your body has transformed to a place you might not have imaged it ever going. However you may feel, if you do not take the images, you will not have them. And while it may be your first or your third pregnancy, each will deliver you an experience (and a baby!) that is unique to this world. That deserves to be captured. If ever there is a time to entrust yourself to the hands of a professional photographer, it is during this time.
Professional maternity photography is not the snap of an Instagram shot or a few shots taken on a whim in your kitchen. It is working with someone who understands that certain poses will photograph better than others, that lighting is key, and with a bit of guidance, you will look as amazing on the outside as you hopefully feel on the inside. For your session, Jessica Tanner Photography provides you with the option of shooting in a private location, such as your home or our studio, where you can bare as little or as much of your belly (and body) that you care to. You may also opt for a less intimate session and select outfits and a location that has meaning to you and will provide a wonderful backdrop for the “before” pages in your Baby Book.
You are welcome to reserve your session any time after you have established your due date, but you will want to schedule a time between 32 and 36 weeks when you are showing enough of a full belly, but not quite ready to deliver! Scheduling in the earlier weeks ensures that you will have a bit more mobility for poses. And by all means, include any siblings (of the two or four-legged variety) as this is an exciting time for your entire family! Jessica Tanner will capture both individual and family images to tell your entire story!
Because this session is about showcasing your beauty and glow, why not treat it as a gift you will give to yourself, and to your baby? Scheduling a hair and makeup appointment prior to the session will pull together your look almost as much as selecting the perfect outfit – this is especially true if you experience skin and hair changes due to hormonal shifts. If your budget and schedule permits, treat yourself to a prenatal massage to really get your glow on!
