When should I have my Maternity Session?
Maternity Sessions are scheduled between 30-36 weeks of pregnancy.
Can I only book a Maternity session without a Newborn Session?
No, a Maternity Session must be booked with a Newborn Session.
Where will the photos be taken?
Maternity sessions can be done at my studio in Boca Raton in the morning hours or outdoors at sunset. Outdoor sessions are only done at a Park or Beach in Boca Raton area. The locations I choose are based on the best lighting and scenery at sunset. Sessions are Monday thru Friday. No sessions on weekends or holidays.
What should I wear for the session?
I have maternity gowns available for you to use for an extra cost. If not, I always recommend to choose solid colors and coordinated clothing, but don't have everyone match. Clothes with stripes, too bright colors, logos, wording or busy patterns will not photograph well. Wear clothes that accentuate your belly, like a nice top or a cute dress.
Can I try a few of your maternity gowns before my maternity session?
The maternity gowns in my collection are one size and are meant to fit most pregnant bodies, so most clients do not try them on prior to their session. If you still feel the need to try it on before your session and you have paid the extra fee to use a maternity gown, then a $25 cleaning fee will be required per dress to try it on, up to a maximum of two dresses.
How many people are included to be photographed during this type of session?
When the session is done outdoors, your spouse and children are welcome to join you for a few photos. The session includes up to 5 people or $25 extra per person. When the session is at my studio, photos are for the Mom-to-be only.
How many photos can I expect in my gallery?
I go through your entire session frame by frame and choose the most perfect images to add to your gallery. Usually a Maternity Session generates about 20+ images for you to review in your private gallery.
Will you provide unedited images?
It is my policy that no unedited images or raw files will be given to clients for any reason. Your proof gallery will include photos that I have chosen as the golden ones. Those will be edited and ready for final color enhancements. Once you choose your favorites, I will finalize those chosen.
How much editing goes into these photos?
The edits of all photos are my artistic interpretation. Basic retouching and edits are determined at my discretion. By looking at my portfolio, I hope you get a vision of what I can accomplish. The proof gallery shows images that are ready as-is to be finalized only with enhanced colors and minor touch-ups. Images are delivered as complete in the final gallery and any further adjustments or changes requested by the client will be first evaluated and if the image will be re edited, it will have an extra charge per photo. Keep in mind that I cannot control the nature of some things, like the wind in your hair or outfits, therefore those are things that will remain the way they were captured.
What is your Reschedule Policy?
In the event you or your child is sick or there is another unforeseen event and you need to reschedule your session, please contact me at least 72 hours in advance in order to transfer your retainer fee to the new date. The new date must be within 7 days, although availability is not guaranteed during fully booked months. A one time reschedule is allowed per session, after that a new retainer is required.
What is your turnaround time?
I send you a Proof Gallery one week after your session for you to select your favorite images. Once the order is made, I will send you the final images 3 weeks after your order is placed. So, you can expect your digitals to be ready 4 weeks after your session date (counting that you do not take too long choosing your favorites). If you purchase any items from my A La Carte Menu (albums, wall art, jewelry) those items can take up to 4-6 weeks after your order is placed.
