The information here is just a guide for you.
I want you to feel comfortable in what you are wearing, how 
much makeup you have on and how you wear your hair.
I am so excited to be shooting this very exciting occasion for you 
and I know that we are going to have a heap of fun doing it. If
 you have any ideas or pictures you have seen you are more 
 welcome to send them through to me so I can start drafting out
 a timeline and organising your photo-shoot.
All clothing should be free of logos, pictures and writing.  
Must Haves/Must Bring
Please bring at least 1 beautiful matching Bra and knickers set to match the dresses in the studio
Strapless Bra
Sorry but maternity bras as they do not look nice in photos)

Blouse / Shirts  
A buttoned down blouse/shirt (soft, flowing, drapey
 fabrics/linen/cotton-one of your own or one of his works well 
too.) This can have an interesting sleeve or tone on tone 
pattern/stitching/ruffles, or a long sweater that can be fastened
 above your belly.  Fitted and cropped blouses are great for
 showing off your belly also. A tank top or T-shirt that is tight
 fitting for covering your top and exposing your belly (too loose
 and your belly will no longer be the focus)

Pants/Skirts/Dresses
Jeans, slacks, drawstring pants and soft skirts.
Dresses whether they are short or long can also photo
extremely well, dresses such as long to the ground in a colour
 such as white, or a short tight fitting dress can really bring out
 you gorgeous shape and belly.
Make sure your dresses are tight, too loose and you could loose your belly
I have various dresses in the studio to choose from as well.

For Him
Try to coordinate with each other.  Jean’s, Slacks and soft 
fabrics look good on him too.  Slacks and nice plain shirts can
 look fantastic. Also be sure to bring plain T-shirts in black or 
white (beige) and please avoid any logos as they can look tacky
 in photos.  
Children
They should coordinate with you as well and have simple attire
 such as a white dress or for the boys jeans and a plain top with
 no logo or a nice pattern shirt for the boys. Girls look beautiful in
 white and lace dresses.  Make sure their eyes, nose, finger and
 toenails are clean and groomed.  Lotion and lip balm will help
 with close-ups.

Hair & Make Up
Make -up should be classic and clean. However your foundation
 can be quite thick as this photographs well and helps me to 
smooth out your skin in post-processing.  Finger and toenails
 groomed. Lotion and lip balm will help with close ups.                                                                          
Hair the same - loose is best. Have your hair either straightened
 or curled/waved depending on your style. We can put it up to
 suit a shot at a later time if needed, so make sure you bring hair
 ties and bobby pins. 
I highly recommend drinking lots of extra water for the prior two
 days…it will make your skin look particularly beautiful!

Leave the rest to me!
Thanks
