MATERNITY SESSION INFORMATION
Your Maternity Session
First things first, congratulations! Being pregnant is an incredibly exciting moment in your life and in the context of the journey that lies ahead, so very brief. Our Maternity sessions are a relaxing, pampering experience and most importantly they are about celebrating your beautiful curves and your body for it’s mind-blowing ability to create life.
We appreciate this may be your first professional maternity photoshoot and you may feel a little nervous, this is perfectly normal. From the moment you walk into the studio your senses will be welcomed by soft, soothing music, the sweet scent of beautifully infused organic oils, a comfortable temperature controlled ambient and a friendly, warm smile offering you a cuppa or a cold drink. Some of our clients have said that walking into the studio feels more like stepping into a day spa!. Throughout the entire photoshoot you will be guided and talked through each and every aspect of positioning your body as well as working through a range of expression. Analia is known for her ability to shape women’s bodies and create beautiful, natural, flattering body language.
Our style is simple, elegant and minimalist. We work with both studio and available light to create high impact artwork showcasing you at your very best.
Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 29 - 34weeks. Of course every woman is different and we understand this may not suite your circumstances. If you are unsure, it’s best to contact us as soon as possible. We are very flexible and aim to accomodate all of our gorgeous mum’s to be. Our maternity sessions are scheduled in the morning and like all of our sessions, are not rushed or timestamped. You should plan between 2 to 3.5 hours to enjoy your Maternity session.
Our studio is unique and niched in it’s custom designed, boutique service and premium experience. Our work is not high volume nor mass produced. We take the time to listen, understand and design a session just for you. Your session includes a consultation with Analia where ideas on lighting, wardrobe and style are discussed including your expectations and goals in terms of your final artwork.
Maternity wardrobe is all about accentuating your wonderful curves and form. Some women feel entirely empowered by their bodies and are quite comfortable posing for tasteful, artistic, implied nude, silhouettes or nude belly/figure images with strategically placed hands and shaped body lines. Other women prefer a more modest, partially or fully clothed style of image. The choice is entirely yours. We keep a number of key pieces in the studio including beautiful fabrics to create soft, dreamy images with flowing, fan swept fabric and hair. We aim for tasteful, classic and elegant fine art maternity imagery that you can be proud of and enjoy.
All work is beautifully retouched and edited with a view to producing a natural, clean, fresh look. Our retouching is all done in house to safeguard quality and consistency of style and finish.
Approximately 2 weeks after your photoshoot you will return to the studio to view your images. Viewing appointments are scheduled in the afternoon and require a minimum of 1 hr. At your viewing appointment you will see 20 - 30 fully edited images. We work with you to design the artwork that best suites you and your home. All of our beautiful, Australian hand made, industry grade product is on display in the studio. Your art work can be purchased in one of three ways ie. Photo Packages, Wall Packages and A La Carte. A La Carte gives you the opportunity to design your own personalised gallery of framed or block mounted prints to suite any size wall, room or space in your home.
