Los Angeles Family and Maternity Portraits
On Location Family portraits are always a great idea, why not consider the comfort of your own home for your next family portrait session.
Choosing to have maternity photos taken is an amazing gift for both you and your baby. I have one daughter, Taylor, who is now 21 but I wish I had given serious thought about taking maternity photos way back then. Like so many women, I know I let the feeling of gaining too much weight and not feeling pretty overcome me and it made me avoid the camera. Today, I really regret not having them for both myself and her.
Here’s a bit of information about the Maternity Portrait Sessions we offer: They can take please at a location of your choice (i.e. beaches and parks with secluded area work best) or in the comfort of your own home – living room, bedroom, baby’s new room or any place in the house or yard with great natural light. They can also be at our in home studio where I get amazing natural light and have different backdrops and fabrics to work with.
Maternity sessions usually take about an hour. It’s best to time for your portrait session between 7-8 months. Any earlier and your bump may not be prominent enough and later than is when you may be tired and uncomfortable.
A makeup and hair artist is a treat and good way to feel beautiful and confident in your photos. We recommend considering having your hair and makeup professionally done but if you’re good with your own makeup, then that’s perfect too. If not, we can recommend someone for you. The style of your session will be dictated by you. We recommend you wear your favorite outfit. One that is comfortable and flattering with nice, soft fabrics and pretty neutral colors. Try and avoid harsh, busy patterns and make sure to bring a few different options to change into and include accessories so we have lots to play with.
Each woman is different and has different levels of comfort and style. Most important relax and have fun, it will be worth it.
