Maternity  Prep Guide


Congratulations on your expecting bundle of joy, such an exciting time! 

I am delighted to offer fine art maternity portraits to the Richmond, Virginia area. I want this to be a stress-free and pampering experience as we document this very special and fleeting moment in your life. 

Included in your session fee is access to our client wardrobe. You are welcome to schedule a fitting any time prior to your your session. I have sourced a large range of bodysuits, gowns, and silks for draping and tossing. 

Leading up to your session consider pampering yourself with a fresh manicure & pedicure. Natural nails are fine too, however, please make sure you have no chipped nails. 

Day of session you will want to arrive to the studio with a clean moisturized face and blown dry hair. Our professional hair and makeup artist will consult with you and get started on creating your custom look. Hair and Makeup usually takes about an hour and we will shoot for 90mins. Please block off 3 hours from your schedule. It is important to stay hydrated during your session, we have a stocked fridge of bottled water and light snacks. 

Essentials to bring to your session:

Nude thong 

Any style black undies

Nude strapless bra

Maternity shapeware

Jeans (non-maternity)



Maternity sessions are best scheduled for 28-32 weeks.
