NYC Luxury Maternity Shoot

Maternity sessions are super special to me. When I first started photography I wanted to focus all my energy on newborn photography only. But as I grew and my name got out there, I started getting requests for maternity portraits. I was scared because women do not see themselves in a positive light for the most part and how was I going to make them feel even more beautiful when they look & feel completely different than ever before in their life. I knew I wanted to create an experience they can cherish and be so happy they decided to book a maternity session in the first place. After a booking a session with me, you will receive a questionnaire. This questionnaire will help guide me with your color choices as well as any special requests. I will schedule a quick video call a few weeks prior to the session so we can meet face to face and go through the comments on the questionnaire. I find it important for the client to see and talk to me in this medium. I will discuss everything they will need for the session and what to expect day of at my NYC studio. I feel with any type of photoshoot or big moment in a women’s life that hair & makeup is super important. It is not about creating a look and becoming someone you’re not, but instead taking a little break from life and being pampered. I actually prefer when my hair and makeup artists stay on the more neutral side. This looks much better on camera and helps with editing. Depending upon the package chosen we will take about 1-3 hours for your scheduled photoshoot. In this time we will change wardrobe and take a few breaks (all my pregnant mamas need a minute or two to relax). These poses are tough! I will be guiding you through the entire process with how to pose so previous model experience is never needed. Following your session, you will receive a proof gallery. This gallery will be the best images taken from the session. Now is your time to select your absolute favorite images. Once you make your selections, they will be sent to my professional retoucher for editing. At the end of this whole experience my clients have never been happier with making this decision of having their pregnancy captured. My goal to empower and make women feel and look beautiful has been achieved!
