Pregnancy FAQs

Romantic walk for expectant couple

When is best to book a maternity session?

You want your bump to stand out and be defined in your photos, so I would usually recommend the session takes place between 30-36 weeks.

 

How do I book a photoshoot with you?

Easy, send me an email at emmatarnphotography@gmail.com or fill in the contact form by clicking here.

All I need to ensure your booking is confirmed will be the session fee paid in full.

Please note, this payment is non-refundable.

Where do the photo sessions take place?

I really enjoy working outside and find that the outdoor environment helps to make for a relaxed session and a gorgeous natural backdrop. I can suggest some local locations for the session, equally I'm happy to shoot somewhere that's meaningful to your family.  

I work throughout Surrey and I'm happy to travel further upon request.

For newborn sessions or in-home sessions, I will come to you.

Can we book a weekend session?

Yes! Although weekend tends to get booked up quickly. So I'd advise if you have a particular date or time that is best for your family, please try and give me a few weeks notice so you aren't disappointed.

How long does a session last?

My maternity sessions, I normally advise to allow up to 60 mins, this allows me to capture a range of images and doesn't leave you feeling too tired!

Help, what should I wear?

My most important tip is wear something you feeling confidant in and is comfortable!  Basically anything that draws attention to your pregnant belly is suitable. I have also put together a Pinterest board for your inspiration, click here to head over to it. If you are having your partner or children in the session with you, pick your outfit first and build from it for the rest of the family.

Can I suggest ideas for poses?

Yes! I am always happy to accommodate any ideas you have, but ask that you kindly give me a heads up a few days before the session date and ideally some visuals so that I can really try to capture your ideas.

What if it rains or is cloudy?

Its not a problem to rearrange due to rain. Cloudy days actually provide very flattering light, so don't be afraid if its overcast on your booked date, the session can still go ahead. With light rain I normally suggest we proceed as planned, but of course if this changes to heavy rain we can reschedule!

What happens after the session?

After the shoot I will work through all your images and provide you with a range to decide from.

Around 2 weeks later, I will upload these images to a password protected online gallery for you to view from your home.  You can decide then what images you want for your mounted print included with your session fee.

The gallery will be live for 5 days for you to decide.
