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
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)
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.
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
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
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!
