Welcoming a new life into the world is one of the most beautiful journeys a person can experience. It's a time filled with anticipation, excitement, and perhaps a touch of nervousness. Capturing these precious moments through maternity photography not only freezes time but also immortalizes the love and joy felt during this special phase of life.

At When Skies Are Grey Photography Media & Designs, we understand the significance of these moments. Our mission is to encapsulate the radiance and beauty of pregnancy through our lens, creating timeless memories that you and your loved ones will cherish forever. With our Mini Sessions Memberships, offering 4, 6, or 12 pack sessions, we ensure that every significant milestone is captured with utmost care and expertise.

 

Here are 5 valuable tips to help you prepare for your maternity session and make it an unforgettable experience:

 

Choose the Right Timing: Timing is crucial for maternity photography. We recommend scheduling your session between 28-34 weeks when your baby bump is beautifully rounded but you're still comfortable enough for posing.

 

Select Meaningful Locations: Whether it's your cozy home, a serene outdoor setting, a place that holds sentimental value, or our studio in Chesapeake, choosing the right location adds depth and meaning to your maternity photos.

 

Wardrobe Matters: Opt for clothing that accentuates your bump and makes you feel comfortable and confident. Flowing dresses, form-fitting outfits, or even cozy knit sweaters can add a touch of elegance to your photos. If you are looking for those lovely maternity gowns we have a client closet and you can see some of our dress options here.

 

Incorporate Personal Touches: Bring along props or items that hold significance to you and your partner. It could be baby shoes, ultrasound images, or even a cherished family heirloom, adding a personal touch to your session. In our Preparing for Your Maternity Session Questionnaire, we have a list of props available to our clients to customize their session with a personal touch.

 

Embrace Authenticity: Relax, be yourself, and let your love and excitement shine through. Maternity photography is all about capturing the genuine emotions and connection between you and your growing family.
