Maternity Session – Maternity Photographer Gold Coast
At K & B Photography we love to take photos of your beautiful bump and capture this precious moment in time that you can look back on. One of our specialties is maternity photography. We have many beautiful locations on the Gold Coast and surrounding areas, as well as our home studio, that we use as our backdrop to create amazing images of you and your bump.
Many clients of ours book for maternity sessions when they are expecting their second child. Time and time again we hear how they deeply regret not getting maternity photos with their first born, and how they missed documenting such an amazing time in their life.
Maternity photos are not just about a bump. Maternity photos are a way to celebrate the baby you are about to meet, to celebrate your partner and your family.
Being pregnant is such an amazing journey for a mum to be; capturing this moment in time is something that we love to do. We take pride in giving our clients natural, beautiful images that celebrate this wonderful journey.
Q: When is the best time to book our maternity session?
A:Ideally around 34-38 weeks will give us a big, beautiful, pronounced bump, however we are happy to take your photos at any stage throughout your pregnancy. Please contact us at least 4-6 weeks before your desired date to ensure availability and to discuss your session.
Q: How long will our session take, and where are they held?
A: We generally set aside 1-2 hours for our maternity sessions. You have the option of having these taken either on location, or in our Gold Coast home studio in Mudgeeraba. We have a handful of beautiful locations that we like use for our maternity sessions, but if you have somewhere in mind, we are also open to this.
Q: When will we see our images?
A: We will give you a sneak peek of one image on the day of your session (usually via our facebook page), then the rest of your images will be ready to view within 2-3 weeks of your session. When your images are ready, we will email you with a link and password to your online gallery. The gallery will contain 20 images for you to view and will be open for viewing for 14 days.
Q: What’s included?
A: Our session includes 10 high resolution images (chosen from your online gallery) on disc. Digital image packages of 5 and 10 can be purchased in addition to your included images. Prints and canvases are available on request.
Preparing for your maternity session
Choose an outfit you feel comfortable in (keeping in mind these are your professional portraits). If you would like have different looks/outfits, choose clothes that you can change in and out of easily, and that don’t leave any marks on your skin (like straps). Go for outfits that really show off your bump – empire dresses are great for this. Have hair and make-up how you like it (natural is nice), and consider the possibility of wind when shooting on location…oh, and bring your lip balm!!
If you are bringing your partner (or support person/mother/sister), aim to coordinate your outfits, but don’t necessarily match. We also suggest avoiding bold logos or anything that may be distracting in your images.
Drink plenty of water the day before your session so that your skin is well hydrated and looks it’s best. Also, try to rest well the night before your session so you feel fresh and look radiant in your photos.
Lastly, bring along any props you may wish to use in your photos – for example sonogram photo, booties, etc.
