Alana Taylor Photography - FAQ's for Maternity Sessions
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE A MATERNITY SESSION?
Maternity Sessions are best done between 30-35 weeks before your little baby prepares itself for birth & moves down into your pelvis for birth. This remarkable little manoeuvre makes your belly “drop” & is not very flattering on camera. Some mums never drop, some drop well before 32 weeks…it’s all up to you!
CAN WE HAVE OUR SESSION ON THE WEEKEND?
Sessions are held on a Monday and a Wednesday for Maternity Shoots. I do not work on weekends
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION GO FOR?
Maternity Sessions are 1 Hour. Time is not extended if you are late
CAN WE HAVE AN OUTDOOR SESSION?
My sessions are done at my studio in Cranbourne East. I do not do Outdoor Sessions or On Location Shoots
CAN MY PARTNER AND OTHER CHILDREN BE INCLUDED?
Yes of course, you can include your partner or other children at no extra cost
MAY I INVITE FAMILY MEMBERS TO THE SESSION?
Your session is exclusive to 2 adults. I like to keep the maximum family members at this session to the immediate family members only. Too many people trying to get your child to smile or talking, will distract your child.
IS HAIR AND MAKEUP INCLUDED?
Makeup and Hair is not Included. This will need to be done or organised by you prior to arriving for your session
Here are some details for some Hair and Make Up Artists that may suit your needs
DO YOU HAVE GOWNS/OUTFITS I CAN WEAR?
I have a huge selection of beautiful Maternity Gowns that we can use during your session. A what to wear guide will be forwarded to make shopping or packing a little easier for your session.
MAMA RENTALS - GOWN RENTAL?
I work with Mama Rentals who offer an amazing collection of maternity dresses for hire at a discount for my clients. If you dont see something you love in my gallery you are more than welcome to hire a dress direct from Mama Rentals
Dont Forget to ask for your Discount for Alana Taylor Photography Clients
WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS?
On the night of your session you will usually get a sneak peek up on my facebook page or within 48 hours of your session. Producing your beautiful photo gallery will take many hours of work to get them ready for viewing. Please allow approximately 1-2 weeks to view them.
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?
Our studio is located in the south east suburbs in Cranbourne. I do not travel to customers homes
HOW DO WE BOOK A SESSION?
Book in early as Im always booked out 2-3 months in advance. Please contact us via the Contact Page, we’d love to hear from you!
