What to expect when you're expecting...
A maternity photo session
Congratulations on the impending birth of this new little human! I'm so EXCITED to capture you during this special time in your life. My goal is to turn the tender moments families share into beautiful art. I approach my sessions in a laid back and fun manner so as to minimize stress and make this experience one you'll remember for the better.
My PHOTOGRAPHY is lifestyle based. This means that I will be guiding you and your family to show the love and connection that you share. I will take some "money" shots where everyone is looking and smiling at the camera, but expect that many of the poses/shots will be of you, your partner, and kids (if there are older siblings) looking at/embracing each other. And of course, plenty of belly shots! I do not use props, however if there is a special prop you have that you'd like to use, please notify me beforehand with this information so I can plan accordingly. If you'd like to know more about the lifestyle approach to family photography and what it means for a typical family session of mine, check out my BLOG POST on the topic.
WARDROBE should be something that you feel fantastic and comfortable in. It's best if logos/lettering is avoided for a more timeless feel. If you need ideas on how to dress, please visit my PINTEREST page.
Rest assured, COVID PRECAUTIONS are in place! Here are things to consider/keep in mind for your session during COVID:
SAFETY: I have a fantastical lens that allows me to capture the beautiful details of your family while keeping a safe distance . I also always where a mask for 100% of the photo session.
PACK ACCORDINGLY: If you would like sitting/laying shots, I will have a blanket handy for you. However, if you prefer to use your own, please bring one along to the session. If you don't mind sitting on the ground (grass/cement/wood stairs/whatever is in the location we choose), then no blanket is needed!
PAYMENT is due at the time of the photo shoot. The cost for the session is $350. I accept cash, check or VENMO (@Libby-Bianchi). The cost covers the session as well as an online gallery delivered within 14 days. The gallery will include a minimum of 30 high resolution edited digital images with the rights to download and/or print as you please. A great place to order prints from is Mpix. However, if you'd like to order professional prints from me, you can do so directly from the gallery.
By booking a maternity session, you will receive $50 off a NEWBORN session if you book one with me.
