Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why should you take maternity photos? 
A: Maternity photos are a great way to capture memories for new families and households that plan to welcome a new, tiny member. A maternity photo helps parents look back on their pregnancy fondly and remember the excitement they felt while awaiting their new arrival.
Q: What should a photographer include in their maternity pre-photoshoot questionnaire? 
A: When you gain a new client, it's important to understand what they want from their photos. In addition to questions about when they're due and if they know the gender, be sure to ask what they plan to wear, how much skin they want showing, and if they have inspiration photos.
Q: Where to get your maternity photography featured on Instagram? 
A: Instagram is a great way for maternity photographers to gain exposure. Using hashtags such as #maternityphotography and #maternityphotoshoot can help people find your profile. If you don't have a consistent, visually appealing feed, photography pages may be quick to dismiss you. In addition to keeping your profile beautiful, keep an eye on the pages you want to be featured on and follow their style and any guidelines they post closely.
