FAQ

What should I wear for my maternity session?

A simple outfit is a winning outfit. You and your splendid shape are the most important thing. 

I do suggest to bring simple jeans, an elastic tube dress, and, if you are comfortable, nice underwear. I advise you to prefer solid colors and textures to patterns. Please, if possible, bring a black or white tan top, tube top and booty shorts, and feel free to bring different options. At the Studio, I do have strapless maternity dresses in chiffon open on the front to show your beautiful belly. Please refer to the portfolio to see what style you like and get inspired.

I have stretch marks, will you edit them?

The marks will be removed in your final artistically photographs. Each package comes with a different quantity of retouched images. Please refer to the price list for more information. Extra retouched images are available upon request.

At what point in pregnancy is it best to schedule my maternity session?

The ideal period is around the 8th month when the belly has reached a beautiful shape. In case you are waiting for twins is preferred to anticipate the session one month.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the shoot. The deposit is fully refundable within a week prior to the shoot.

What is the difference between Basic Retouching and Artistically Retouched images?

You will receive all the photos taken during your photo shoot, I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between shots’ that sometimes come with my style of direction. All the images in this selection will be treated with a Basic Retouching, they are cropped, color corrected and ready to print. 

 

Each package comes with a fixed number of artistically retouched images. I can also retouch extra photographs for $25 per image. I like the retouching to look absolutely natural. 

Good retouching is imperceivable. My retouching style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. I will remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and dark circles. Furthermore, I will be happy on request to hide double chins and extra weight, as well as whiten teeth or improve the look of your hair by removing frizzy hairs and improving the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself.

I recommend Adorama for prints of your photographs. Their online service is convenient, reasonably priced, and of high quality. Information about their services can be found here: www.adoramapix.com. For greeting cards, postcards, and specialty products, I recommend Tinyprints.

Where will the sessions take place?

As you book your session please choose your preferred location between Brooklyn and Manhattan.

When will I receive my digital images and my prints?

Within 2 weeks after the shoot, you will receive a download link with the photographs from our session. You will receive your prints in 30 days. Rush delivery is available upon request.
