Maternity - RDT-studio

All sessions are priced to get the shot that you will like. I will keep shooting  until we get it right! It can take an hour or more, it really depends on your experience to pose. Some clients enjoy while I take their pictures and feel very natural in front of the camera. If you have  a shy personality  it may take a little longer to get it right. In any case you will get my guidance and support during our session.


The session is FREE of charge, the difference in package prices is based on the amount of the images that you will choose to purchase after the session. So, there is no rush to choose your package today!

How to Prepare for your session:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

• be as well rested as possible for the session

• eat well before session

• bring snacks for yourself

• I recommend having your hair and makeup in natural approach, like you go out for the day

• a day before the session get manicure and pedicure

• be careful not to wear elastic or tight-fitting clothes, to avoid impression marks on your skin during the session

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What clothing should you bring to your photo shoot?

Check out my Maternity Pinterest page to find some awesome ideas.

• Your clothes should be ready to wear and wrinkle-free.

• Bring couple of different styles and colors of underwear and strapless bras, some clothes are translucent and will show the color that is underneath.

• Investigate the clothes that you plan to wear in front of the morrow: sometimes you will notice things that you do not want to be in your images.

• If you have unique clothing item that reflect your personality, hobbies, or that have sentimental meaning don't be afraid to bring them too!

Colors - I recommend to prepare at least four outfits, more is better! Solid, earth or pastel colors tend to work the best, but patterns, especially elegant can work well and give a sense of shape and depth to a photo. Keep in mind that white color look clean and fresh on the picture but may visually add few pounds to your look.

Fabrics - look for thin clingy, not necessarily tight, fabrics with a little stretch. If you interested in the images with fabric we must discuss it days before our session

Pants - Pre-pregnancy jeans or cords (unbuttoned if you still able to wear), Yoga and other types of plain, dark colored workout bottoms are very useful

Dresses - these can be incredibly sophisticated and sexy, but choose carefully. Look for dresses that cling to your shape, not the loose, comfortable style. My Pinterest page has a great example collection.

Tops - choose clothes that will show off your pregnancy, rather minimize it. I like big, button-down, slightly rumpled men's shirt. Any shirt or cardigan that opens down the front works well. Sports bra, bikini top, or flattering bras are the good choices for showing the belly.

Sleeves - Long-sleeved shirts tend to be the most flattering, but sleeveless and spaghetti straps also work.

Necklines - select v-necks, square-necks, turtlenecks or deep scoop necks.

Tanks or camisoles - anything clingy, fitted or stretchy in solid colors.

Jewelry & watches – these can add or take away from the image. Bring what you like to wear and I will help you to select the best option.

Special & unique - unusual items like large swaths of fabric in powerful colors like purple, red and royal blue can make for stunning results. Consider saris or large and luxurious scarves. Consider fabrics that are exceptionally sheer or have a little bit of sheen.

Blanket – consider bringing your own blanket. We can use it to cover you when you change your clothes, or for your seating poses. Make sure that the blanket will compliment your style and dress. Bright and vibrant colors will take away viewer’s attention. The blanket should have neutral color palette.
