When should I have my Maternity Session?
Maternity Sessions are scheduled between 30-36 weeks of pregnancy.
Can I book only 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 or outdoors. 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.
What should I wear for the session?
I have maternity gowns available for you to use. 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.
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 home 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. Yes, you may have heard my shutter click more times than you have photos but this is because I have taken out the images that have imperfections or those not to my standards. Usually a Maternity Session generates about 20 images for you to review in your private gallery.
Will I receive a photo of every pose we did?
No. Sometimes a pose does not work out the way I intended it to be and therefore not all poses will be provided. It is my job to provide high quality images rather than providing quantity.
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 gallery will include photos that I have chosen as the golden ones. Those will be lightly edited and available for the PROOF Gallery first. Once you choose your favorites, I will fully edit those chosen.
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 2-3 weeks after your order is placed. So, you can expect your digitals to be ready 3-4 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.
