Sessions with young children are recommended right after breakfast and before the first nap of the day. Sessions with older children can take place any time of the day depending upon location.  Sessions with newborn babies tend to be photographed indoors in your home (See Newborn Session Details).

Baltimore Family PhotographerWhat to Wear

It is highly recommended to avoid busy patterns; however, one family member with a pattern or two with non-clashing patterns are fine- everyone should not wear patterns, as that becomes very busy and hard on the eyes.  The goal of family portraits is to focus on you and your family.  Your clothing choice should be a reflection of you and your personality.   Choosing color palettes that blend well with each other but are not the exact same article of clothing for everyone are usually the best choices.

Maternity Photography

Maternity Photography

Maternity photography is an excellent option to capture the beauty of your pregnancy.   It is best to schedule your appointment between 6 months and 8 months when you are most comfortable.

Maternity PhotographerPhoto Session Details

Maternity/Pregnancy sessions take place in your home or at a location of your choice in Maryland, DC, Pennsylvania, or Virginia.  If you wish to achieve a more studio look, it is recommended that these images be photographed indoors.  Lighting equipment and backdrops are brought to the session.  All that is needed is a 6 foot by 6 foot cleared space anywhere in your home to have beautiful artistic pregnancy images that look just like you were standing in a studio.  It is truly all about the lighting.  See image below – that image was taken in a tiny hotel room.

Baltimore MaternityWhat to Wear

This is up to you.  Some cloth wraps are provided during the shoot, but you can bring your own wraps, dresses, lingerie, or casual clothes such as jeans, or form-fitting items.  

Everyone has their own comfort level in regard to pregnancy photography.  This is totally your call.  If nude or semi nude, Jodie uses beautiful lighting techniques that she has perfected over the course of 15 years.  She uses these techniques to accent your beautiful form and create the most flattering images.  If you want artistic images, not every photographer can achieve this type of lighting.

More casual outdoor lifestyle images can also be done to document your pregnancy or soft images may be achieved in front of your windows.
