ABOUT OUR MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY
Life is everything, and a new life is the biggest miracle in the world!
Pregnancy is not only a hard and challenging time but also the most magical and unforgettable time in our lives. If it’s the most important time, then what else deserves more than this to be captured and be saved forever?
The first thing that makes maternity different from any other photography session is the fact that the mommy-to-be is not as mobile as she was before pregnancy. Keeping in mind that the maternity session is also about experience, we have to choose the location wisely. If you choose a studio session, we will drive to your place and set up our mobile mini-studio, so you even don’t have to walk out of your home!
In case you want an outdoor session, we will help you choose the right location.
Finally, what also makes difference in pictures is your outfit. Despite the fact, that you can use your everyday dress for all other occasions, the maternity session needs a special dress to make your pictures more stylish and bring the final product to a completely different level. We have a lot of rental companies nearby or we will help you choose a dress if you decide to buy one.
Lana & Aleks Photography is a real expert in our field. We will be with you on each preparation step, so your beautiful maternity time never stresses you out and brings just joy and great memory which you can see on your maternity pictures.
Please schedule a session ahead for the period of 30-34 weeks from the moment of your pregnancy. Partners and siblings are very welcome to participate in the session.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME IN MY PREGNANCY TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED?
The ideal time is between 30 - 34 weeks. At this stage of your pregnancy, you have a nice round bump but it is not yet too uncomfortable to get in some of the poses. We can photograph you later in your pregnancy, anything up to 38 weeks, but please contact us to book in your session as soon as possible.
WHAT IS THE PRICING?
Our Maternity sessions include a beautiful Italian handmade Reveal Box of 15 professionally edited and printed fine-art photographs and a beautiful online gallery that stores your hi-res digital files. You are also paying for a wonderful experience that you will remember for the lifetime. This is such a unique time in your life, and we want to capture that for you.
The total cost is $700, which includes travel, Maternity photography session, family photography session, retouching work for 15 photos, your premium print, and reveal box, high-resolution digital files gallery. You will also have the option to upgrade your Reveal Box or purchase stunning wall art during an online viewing session a few days after your session. We also provide combined packages with a Newborn photography session and Maternity photo session for a more cost-efficient price with additional bonuses.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We highly recommend you rent or buy a specific maternity dress for your session; there are a lot of different options around and we will help you choose the right one.
HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU TAKE?
On the day of your session, we will photograph you in different outfits and poses. You will then see about 100 photos from your session to choose 15 for retouching and printing photographs
IS IT A POSSIBILITY FOR MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN TO BE INCLUDED IN THE SESSION?
Yes! Family pictures are a part of the Maternity photography package. Pregnancy is an exciting time for everyone in the family, and we would love to document that for you. We are experts in family photography, and you can find plenty of family photography packages on our website.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE IMAGES?
We will schedule an online selection session several days after your photoshoot. During this session, you will view your beautiful photos for the first time and make your selection for the pictures to be saved/retouched for you and decide if you would like to order beautiful wall art for your home.
CAN I PURCHASE JUST THE DIGITAL FILES?
Maternity photography session includes both the printed and digital copies of your photographs. The digital files cannot be purchased separately.
