Seek Studios Maternity Sessions
Our maternity packages includes a 1.5 to 2 hour session out doors at your favorite location or in the privacy of your own home. It also includes an online gallery that you can view, share, or print your images. The images that are delivered are all retouched one by one. You have the ability from the gallery to download the images directly from your personal gallery. Below are some tips to help plan and prepare for your up coming maternity session.
We recommend comfortable clothing that is form fitting. Accenting the belly should be the goal. We want to see a separation from the belly and the bosom if possible. Solid bright colors also work best like greens, reds, blues, but we always recommend white. Try to avoid dark solid colors like black. Complex and heavy patterns also tends to wash out or hide the belly. If you have a second outfit look at a location that is accommodating to making the change quickly to not take up a large amount of time out of the session.
When should you take your maternity photos? The average time frame many mothers prefer is 30 weeks or 7 and 8 months. It is important to schedule your session when you feel most comfortable.
Props are a fantastic addition to your photo session. They props should be important and significant to you. Props such as letters for the baby's name, sonograms, shoes, and balloons. If you choose to bring banners it is best to bring large letters no less than 5 inches tall with a matte finish.
In home and out door locations are both an option for your session. You may also do both at an additional charge. In home sessions are perfect for an intimate and personal experience with your unique vision within your surrounds. Out door sessions are wonderful and we love them. Our favorite locations are parks with a lot of green, city scapes like Down Town LA and Downtown Long Beach, and beaches settings like the Laguna Beaches. Specific locations are Descanso Gardens, Cerritos Library Sculpture Garden, Arlington Garden, Laguna Beach, DTLA, and DTLB.
