The maternity session is about more than a baby bump. We feel that your maternity session should be more than simply a photo shoot. It should be a day to remember, a day of celebrating, processing, realizing, and honoring this time as you get closer to your due date. It's about documenting your family as it is now, before you go through a period of significant change and expansion. It's about preserving forever that feeling of anticipation and excitement. It's all about accepting and respecting this fleeting, supremely feminine figure.
The best time to take maternity pictures is around 28-32 weeks when your belly is already showing but not too close to your due date.
Svetlana includes a complimentary consultation to perfectly tailor the maternity session to you. Style, posing, wardrobe, and lighting will be discussed during the consultation with her. Svetlana believes that working closely with her clients allows her to truly bring their dreams into the real world. A Maternity Guide that provides more info on how to prepare for the session will be sent to you once you book your session. You will be able to choose from a wonderful collection of drapery, gowns, dresses, and robes for your session. Your stunning portraits will be enhanced by having your makeup and hair done by professional make up artist and hair stylist and can be added to the package for an extra charge. If you are interested in an outdoor maternity session, it can be shot at a local scene such as a park, beach, field or woodsy settings. Svetlana photographed weddings and engagements in San Diego for many years before switching to newborn photography. She has been able to scout out many pretty locations all throughout San Diego county, that are prefect for a romantic outdoor maternity photo shoot.
If you are mesmerized by the simplicity of studio maternity pictures and dramatic studio lilting, we offer studio maternity photo shoots as well. The option of shooting in the studio allows you to relax during the session in the comfort of a private and air-conditioned environment. The safe and comfortable atmosphere in our studio is ideal for those who are intrigued by nude or semi-nude boudoir maternity photos.
Up to two wardrobes are included in the one hour maternity session. Husbands and children are welcomed to participate in the session at no extra cost.
