Preparing for your Maternity Photography Session

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about your Toronto maternity photography session.  Please take a moment to read through the answers and don’t hesitate to contact Honeybourne Studio to book your maternity photo session today !

When should I schedule my maternity photography session ? 

For most women, we recommend the session be between 32 and 36 weeks.  We want to be sure your baby belly is really showing, but not wait until the very end when most women are uncomfortable. Many times babies arrive earlier than your due date so we don’t want to miss the chance of photographing you at this beautiful stage in your life.

What should I bring for my maternity photography session?

We recommend a solid color button up shirt, a long sleave button up cardigan or sweater, a bandeau top or a strapless bra, your pre-pregnancy jeans, a pretty dress and any other outfit you feel confident in.  We also recommend you bring any items that will have special meaning for the baby – a teddy bear or baby shoes for instance.

To view a variety of outfits recommended for your maternity photography session please view our full portfolio.

How long does the maternity photography session take?

Maternity sessions are 45 minutes in length. We capture a variety of images of mom alone and encourage dad to come along for a greater variety and showcase both happy parents-to-be.

What if I have a blemish or stretch marks ?

Blemishes, minor stretch marks, bruises and scratches should not be cause for  worry.  We retouch all of your images before you ever see them and  these imperfections are not a problem.

What do most clients purchase after their maternity photography session?

Most clients choose to purchase digital negatives or one of our albums, gift prints and wall portraits.

How do I select my images and products ?

The best images will be selected for viewing within 14 days of your session. Your proofs will be available for you to view on a private password protected gallery. Please remember that it is a violation of Federal Copyright Law to copy, save or print the images within this gallery.

Your gallery will be available for 5 days during which time you can make the image selections for your chosen product.
