So you are planning on having a Maternity Photoshoot? While I am sure that you are so excited to capture this moment before your bun in the oven is here with us in the world, there are a few things you will need to decide before your shoot gets here:
- What type of shoot do you want?
When it comes to your maternity shoot, you will want to determine the type of shoot you want. You can do an outdoor shoot, using the beauty of nature to enhance your shoot. If you are looking for more of an editorial session, then you may want to consider an indoor session, where we can create dynamic and interesting photos. Here at K-Rae Images, we even have a milk bath option (can be added on to a studio session even) that looks absolutely stunning in photos!

2. What do you want to wear?
You want to feel beautiful and comfortable for your session. Instead of spending hundreds on a new gown, here at K-Rae Images, we have over 40 outfits you can choose from in our Client Closet. Curious about the styles we carry? Check them out here
3. Determine your comfort level with nudity.
When it comes to maternity shoots, you can be covered up in a nice flowing gown, or we can take an editorial approach with elegant angles and tasteful nudity
4. Figure out props you want beforehand.
Discuss any props you want to bring with your photographer. If you have specific props that have sentimental meaning, you need to determine what these are (shoes, ultrasound photos, etc) with your photographer beforehand so that they can properly incorporate these elements into your session.
5. Will other people be posing with you?
Your maternity session is all about you and your new family! Determine beforehand if you want photos of yourself alone, with your significant other, and/or with other children in the session. This way everyone can be dressed appropriately and your photographer can plan out poses for you before your session.
6. Choose a photographer that is well known for their work.
K-Rae Images is an AWARD-winning newborn and maternity photographer here in north Texas. We take great pride in our work and providing the most luxurious experience for our clients. We want you to have the best photos possible and beautiful artwork that you will treasure forever. Make sure you do your research when looking for a photographer who will take care of ALL aspects of your shoot.
7. Professional Hair/Makeup.
When getting professional photos taken, you will want to make sure your hair and makeup look amazing. Thankfully, here at K-Rae Images, we can offer professional hair and makeup as part of your session.
