Frequently Asked Questions about pregnancy photoshoot
On this page you will find the most frequently asked questions about my pregnancy photo sessions.
When to do a pregnancy photo shoot?
The best is to do this maternity photo session between the 7th and 8th month of pregnancy. This way you will have a nice round belly. In addition you will move easily especially for outdoor shootings. There will also be a safety margin before the arrival of the baby.
How to book the pregnancy photo shoot?
The easiest way is to contact me by email or phone. You must choose your pack for the pregnancy photo shoot. You will find the different packs on the price page of the website. I ask for a deposit of 50% to definitely book the maternity photo shoot.
How to prepare for the pregnancy photo shoot?
Think about styling your hair and makeup. You will have to take several clothes. We must focus on softer colors and match with dad. Try to sleep well a few days before the shooting.
How long does a photo shoot take?
I only book one pregnancy photo session per half day. The photo sessions last about 1 hour, excluding travel time to arrive at the venue.
How does a photo shoot of pregnancy?
We meet at my studio in Marseille, at the shooting location outside or directly at your home. I will guide you for photos always keeping in mind that we want a natural and spontaneous style.
At the end of the photo shoot, I will show you all the pictures taken on a tablet. You will be able to make your selection of the most beautiful photos.
How many photos are delivered?
The packs include 15 selected photos. Of course you can take more if you wish. The additional photo is 20 €.
How long does it take to deliver the photos?
Once you have selected the photos, I will have to edit them. It can take between 2 and 4 weeks depending on my workload. I take care on every photo to remove small imperfections.
How will we do if it's not sunny?
When booking we will define a day according to your expected date of arrival of the baby. But do not worry if you’ve chosen an outdoor shoot and it’s not sunny. We will find another date depending on my availability or we can switch to a studio shoot. Just call me to change the date or change the service.
Is the online gallery paying?
You can distribute the link from the online gallery of photos to whoever you want. Your friends and family can easily view all photos, download and print them.
Downloading photos in high definition format jpeg is paying € 3 per photo.
They will also be able to print photos on different media and print sizes. As an online sales site, they will only have to choose their photos and size, add it to cart and pay directly by card. A few days later they receive everything directly at home.
Can we take pictures with our children?
Your children are welcome. The shooting time allows us to take pictures of the mother alone, the couple and with the family. Do not forget to agree on your style of clothing. Your children will be able to take photos with you at the very beginning of the photo shoot (10 minutes) and then leave. The goal is not to disrupt the smooth running of the session in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
Do you have any accessories for the mom?
I have two white lace dresses and two crowns of flowers. I also have a big black tule fabric for studio shootings. You will also have to prepare different outfits. Avoid bright colors, logos, drawings and overly graphic things. And of course, think of all having the same style of clothing.
When should you call to book?
You can do it from the first months of pregnancy. We will define dates that can be changed when needed. To be certain of my availability, it is best to contact me at least 2 weeks in advance. But even at the last moment, I will always find a moment to do your pregnancy photo shoot.
Can the photo shoot be done at home?
With pleasure ! You just need to have a nice decoration. The sessions at home are spent in natural light in a cocooning style.
