Both indoor and outdoor maternity, can both be beautiful and different, yet equally amazing. Nothing will compare to the effects natural lighting has on outdoor maternity portraits, especially during golden hour, which is about 1 - 1.5 hours before sundown. It creates a soft, romantic, golden diffused lighting which is perfect, if you're wanting a more traditionalist approach to your maternity photos, and also plan on incorporating your significant other and children into your session.

1) When Is The Best Time to Schedule My Maternity Session & Will You Help Me Find a Location? Where Is Your Studio Located?


Best to time to schedule your maternity photography session would be between 28-35 weeks. However, I do realize some women tend to show alot early, while others later in the pregnancy. When you feel you have a noticeably round belly is when I’d recommend booking.


The list of locations will be emailed to you upon inquiry. Locations available are in Dallas, Richardson, Plano, Rockwall..etc.


Fine Art Maternity Photography sessions take place in my home studio, located at 4014 Dalton Dr. Rowlett, TX. The studio is a custom designed private space which holds everything needed for your custom maternity photoshoot experience. My Dallas maternity photography studio is stocked with an extensive amount of couture gowns and accessories. Use of these items are all included in your collection price total.


2) What Time Of Day Do You Schedule Maternity Sessions & Do You Offer Weekends Appointments?


Outdoor maternity photography sessions are scheduled anywhere between 6:30-7pm for the spring/summer months and 3:30-4pm for the fall/winter months. Outdoor maternity photography sessions are always scheduled 1.5-2 hours before sundown. Lighting, is always more aesthetically pleasing with the soft afternoon golden glow. I get asked alot about the heat and humidity during the summer months and I reassure you, it’s never an issue. I’m always conscious of making sure your gown, hair and pose is picture perfect and with that, if any sweat is visible, I always have clients dab it off. It’s actually quite the opposite during the hotter months. A little sweat always gives clients a beautiful shimmery glow in post processing.


Since I also specialize in weddings full time, maternity photoshoots, weather indoor or outdoor, are not scheduled on weekends. They must be scheduled during the week, Monday - Friday. Studio availability, is anytime between 8am and 7pm.


3) Will You Help & Guide Me To Make Me Feel & Look My Best?


Yes, I most certainly will! Let’s be honest, most don’t have the opportunity to get professionally photographed by a Dallas maternity photographer on a regular basis so it’s completely normal for clients to feel uneasy and anxious about the whole maternity photoshoot process. I don’t want you to worry. I come with enough experience to already envision the whole maternity session before we even begin; posing, lighting, angles..etc. Also, you put your mind at ease, I'm more than welcome to schedule a maternity session pre-consultation. In case you would like to get your session pre-planned our to just get a better feel for each other.


After booking has been confirmed, you will also receive a maternity photography session prep guide that’ll discusses in detail, every aspect of your maternity session and how you can prepare with regard to hair, makeup, skin prep, shoes, props, use of gowns..etc.


4) Do You Offer Maternity Gowns & How Many Outfit Changes Am I Allowed?


Yes, I do! I have a wide selection of designer couture and casual maternity gowns, clients are welcome to use, free of charge. Casual maternity photography gowns are made of very stretchy, long and forgiving fabric, so they can fit anywhere from a size 2-14. For the designer maternity gowns, those are sized anywhere from 10-14. It's much easier to tie clips in the back to make it form fitting verses the alternative.


The fine art maternity session, gives you the option of 5-6 gowns/looks. Outdoor maternity portrait sessions are limited to, only one couture gown.


5) Do You Provide Props For Maternity Sessions?


I do not provide props for outdoor maternity sessions. Props are only used for in-studio newborn sessions. However, I’d recommend bringing a sonogram and (or) baby shoes to incorporate into your session. Your maternity session prep guide will discuss in detail, what props you can possibly incorporate.


6) Choosing Between In-Studio Maternity Sessions or Outdoor?


I’ve always believed that the pregnant woman is beautiful no matter where she is so, whatever backdrop you decide on you can’t go wrong.

In-studio maternity photography portraits or on-location can both be amazing, different – yet equally amazing. Nothing will compare to the effects natural lighting has on outdoor maternity photos, especially during golden hour, which is about 1.5 - 1 hour before sundown. It creates such soft, romantic, golden diffused lighting which is perfect if you’re wanting a more traditionalistic approach to your maternity photos.


Aesthetically, studio photos give more of a high-end and lavish feel to your imagery than outdoor maternity photos. It's a controlled atmosphere, which is great for clients that are more comfortable indoors, than they are in the great outdoors, taking into account the summer and winter weather. You’ll have more privacy making it great for shooting tasteful semi-nudes, and nudes and not having to worry about prying eyes. Indoor portraits tend to be more flexible in scheduling since they can be scheduled at any time of the day. Indoor maternity portraits are great for high-risk pregnancies because of the limiting of walking and also, for clients that have significant others that prefer to be limited on the photo aspect of this beautiful journey. These sessions solely focus more on the task at hand, in such a way that artistically and yet tastefully, enhances the miraculous gift of growing a baby- yay-you!


7) After My Session, Who Chooses The Final Image Count?

Within a week after your session, I will begin selecting my very favorites images from your session, to provide you with your online proofing gallery. From the gallery link, you'll be able to pick and choose which files you'd want edited and delivered.


Keep in mind, the online gallery proofing link will only contain images that meet my high quality expectations. You will not receive the gallery of hundred of the photos taken. I'd much rather overshoot a certain pose, angle and expression to have plenty to choose from, than not enough.


8) What Is The Turnaround On The Files?


Turnaround on your digital files is 21 days from your maternity session date. Once the said photos have been post-processed, files will be added to another online gallery. I will text you once the gallery has been emailed. From the gallery, you’ll be able to download your high-resolution non-watermarked images to your computers. You will also receive a PDF of your print release/usage rights.


You’re more than welcome to share the gallery with family and friends. Online gallery also has the option to also purchase prints directly from the printing lab. Prints start at $15.00 and orders are shipped directly to the lab and arrive within 2 weeks of the order date.


9) Can I Incorporate My Husband and (or) My Other Children Into My Maternity Session?


Yes of course! However, indoor maternity sessions solely focus on the task at hand; expectant moms. Since the digital count for indoor sessions is a lot less than outdoor, your significant other will only be in 2-3 photos. If you would like them to be more involved in the posing aspect, I would recommend the outdoor maternity session where you can maximize every single pose with different looks/angles/scenery..etc.


10) Can I Bring My Pet To The Maternity Session?


As much as I love the sweet idea of having your fur baby involved, pets are not allowed in the studio. If you’re wanting your pet involved, I would recommend the outdoor maternity session.


11) Is Hair & Makeup Included In The Pricing? Do You Have Any Hair & Makeup Artist Recommendations?


Collection pricing does not include professional hair and makeup. I included links below too, two vendors, I highly recommend. They have done fabulous work with many of my clients. I'm also available to directly coordinate your hair and makeup appointment with the artist, once we have narrowed down any potentials dates that work best for your schedule.


Please note, I am in no way, personally affiliated with this artist. If you decide to use them, you do so at your own risk. These artist have their own makeup studio so you will be required to arrive to their location. Unfortunately, they are not available to come to the studio.

12) Do You Offer Belly to Baby Combo Collection?


I do! When booking both your maternity and mini newborn session, I’ll include the family and sibling photos free of charge, which will add an additional 4-6 more digital file to the mini newborn session collection. If you book the full newborn session you will receive a $75 discount. For lifestyle sessions, a $50 discount is applied. Discounts are not given to the maternity photography collection for booking both, only the newborn session.
