Maternity Outfits are Included With Your Session
Here are just a few examples of some of the amazing gowns that come included in your session fee. If we don't have a gown, bodysuit or dress that you love, we will order something custom at no additional charge to you. The outfits are the property of Mountain Studio and are added to our client closet.
Plan Your Session in Advance
If you have a very specific vision for your maternity shoot, it is best to contact your photographer in advance to start planning. Items for the shoot may take time to order and come in. We recommend contacting us during your first or second trimester since the session is scheduled in your third trimester. Think about whether you want it outdoors or indoors, what kinds of outfits you want to wear etc. We always recommend that a client makes a Pinterest board of some inspiration when planning their session.
Before your session date, we’ll discuss a location to meet and whether you’d like an urban or nature setting. We have plenty of local spots we use regularly for sessions. Your maternity session will be up to one hour long. Your whole family is welcome to join us! We treat these similarly to family sessions but with more emphasis on mama. Maternity sessions are super relaxed, natural, and documentary-style. Don’t expect to get a bunch of photos where everyone is looking and smiling at the camera. Our aim is to capture this special time in your life and your love for the sweet baby growing in your belly. Afterwards, we’ll set up a time for you to stop in to the studio for your gallery viewing session within a week or so of your session.
Our studio is a small studio out of our home that can accommodate maternity against a paper or fabric backdrop. If you would like more variety, we shoot at a variety of different larger spaces. Keep in mind that if the space requires a rental fee, that this charge will be added onto your invoice. If the studio location is outside of Hamilton, ON there will be a travel fee added to your invoice as well. There is no additional fee to shoot at our studio space.
If your partner or other family members wish to be included, neutrals and earthy are always best. No distracting patterns or bright colours to allow for the best curated look to your images.
When working with artists such as ourselves, you are paying for more than just a series of images. Each picture and setup is a curated work of art that only we can produce. You want to be sure that the person who you are hiring knows what they're doing and that their work has consistency. We have just over 3 years of experience photographing maternity and know how to make you look and feel amazing during this special time in your life.
