The moment you find out that you’re pregnant, all the emotions, body changes, and planning kick into overdrive! There’s so much to do from setting up the nursery, going to prenatal appointments, and everything in between.
No matter what, it’s so important that you take the time to have maternity portraits taken. Why? Because trust me, you are so beautiful, and you will want these photos to look back on and remember this special time in your life.
You may enjoy a relatively easy pregnancy (lucky you!), or you may have to endure some not-so-lovely symptoms while growing a human. Either way, I think choosing a maternity portrait session that aligns with style and comfort will make all the difference in your portraits.
Plus, once you know what type of session you want, choosing a Charlotte maternity photographer is much easier. I will share the top five benefits of a studio maternity portrait session.
5 Benefits of a Studio Maternity Photography Session
- It Won’t Rain on Your Parade
Rain or shine; we’re able to capture your beautiful pregnancy. The window to take breathtaking maternity portraits is relatively short. We can take them whenever you are most comfortable, but I usually recommend taking your maternity portraits between 28-34 weeks. This is the best time to capture your gorgeous bump before you feel too uncomfortable. That being said, if your maternity photos are scheduled for outside, and they are rained out, you might have to scramble to find a new date.
- No Heat Waves in Here
Mamas, you don’t want to walk around taking photos in the July heat. Besides overheating (which is not safe for pregnant women), we don’t want to worry about your hair and makeup suffering in the humidity. We don’t have to worry about the heat and humidity inside the temperature-controlled studio. It’s always the perfect temp. Plus we can always create a breeze in the studio for that hair-tossed look.
- Need the Bathroom?
Because we all know expecting mamas have to pee… a lot. Luckily, there’s an available bathroom right here in the studio. One of my friends had her maternity photos taken at a local park. Unfortunately, the bathrooms were locked! She remembers having to pee very badly by the end of her session. That’s not the way you want to remember your maternity portraits.
- Wardrobe Availability
Instead of worrying about which outfits to bring, where to change, etc., you’ll have access to my client wardrobe to find something you will love wearing. No matter how you’re feeling about your body right now, I know that you are so beautiful, and we can find you an outfit that you’ll feel confident wearing for your session. Plus, you will love having a comfortable place to change into your wardrobe! And this also allows you to have multiple looks during your session.
If you aren’t sold on a studio session, this might be the reason for you! The studio offers total privacy. We don’t have to worry about anyone being goofy in the background or feeling uncomfortable if you want to show off your beautiful bump.
