FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Maternity

WHEN IS BEST TO SCHEDULE A MATERNITY SESSION?

Maternity sessions are best captured between 29 and 36 weeks when your belly is nice and round and you aren’t too uncomfortable.  

WHEN IS BEST TO RESERVE A SESSION?

I recommend booking 1-2 months in advance; however, sometimes, I can accommodate last-minute bookings.

HOW LONG IS A MATERNITY SESSION?

Maternity sessions usually take 1.5-2 hours.

CAN MY CHILD, PARTNER OR PET BE INCLUDED IN THE IMAGES?

Absolutely! We will discuss it all when we will plan your maternity session.

WHAT ABOUT HAIR AND MAKEUP?

You can arrange it yourself or I can book a hair and makeup artist to come to the studio.

I AM NOT COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE.

Most of my clients tell me this. Don’t worry; you’re in good hands. I will instruct and guide you into every pose, telling you exactly where to look, where to place your hands, etc. My goal is for you to feel comfortable, relaxed and empowered.

I HAVE SOME STRETCH MARKS AND DON’T FEEL MY PRETTIEST. WILL IMAGES BE RETOUCHED?

All the images that you choose will be professionally retouched.

WHERE DO SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Maternity sessions are held at my studio in Brentwood, Essex. 

WHAT ABOUT STYLING? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING AND WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

I like to customise maternity sessions as much as possible. After booking your session, we will discuss all the options, learn which images you love most, and figure out what I have in the studio and what you will need to bring.

I have a small studio wardrobe; most of the time, during maternity shoots, we use some items from my studio wardrobe and some that my clients bring.

My style is elegant, minimalistic and timeless. If you are looking for images with large tule gowns etc, I am not the right photographer for you.

DO THE SESSION FEE INCLUDE DIGITAL IMAGES?

No. I do not believe in selling images that you have not seen yet. 

The session fee reserves your session time, covers your shoot time and ordering and viewing appointment. This booking fee is non-refundable.

Digital files, albums and artwork are purchased after seeing your images, so you can choose exactly what you love. You can read more about it on my pricing page.

I ONLY WANT A FEW IMAGES.

If you only want a few images, you can book a mini shoot. 

HOW DO I BOOK?

It would be an honour to photograph you.  Simply fill out the contact form or email me directly at photo@tinyposers.com, and I will be in touch within 48 hours to chat about all of the details involved in reserving your session.
