Ajax Baby Bump: Maternity Session

Maternity sessions are beautiful!  Every mom deserves some wonderful memories of this time in her life. So how should YOU prepare for your session?   Well, maternity sessions in general I like to recommend scheduling them between 32 and 36 weeks.  Often times, we have no control when our little one's will arrive, so it's usually best not to wait till the end when mom is tired and uncomfortable.

Your Preparation:

Maternity sessions are all about capturing your beauty during your pregnancy, and the miracle of the baby growing inside you. I want you to be relaxed and comfortable at all times.  Make sure that this day is all about YOU!  For this session we took advantage of Fall's natural beauty!  Perfect temperature and gorgeous colors!

Your Clothing:

I like to suggest to my clients that when we do family maternity sessions or simply family sessions alone, try to think of dressing everyone as one outfit.  Meaning, you compliment eachother. To be all tied together rather than everyone sporting a different style.  Being relaxed in your own skin so to speak, makes for relaxed and natural images.

Your Session:

Don't forget to breathe and enjoy the moment. The little details that I will help capture for you is MY job.  Posed or lifestyle, you are the center of attention. Be yourself, don't be afraid to laugh or cry at the drop of a hat. This precious time in your life goes by quickly. So forget the swollen ankles, tiredness and hormones. You are awesome! Look at you glow!


This session is especially close to home for me. Allow me to introduce to you my sister and her family!  I am so excited to share these images with you all. We had a great time together. The kids were super excited and can't wait till baby arrives! Neither can I!
