FAQ

What should I wear for my maternity session?

I provide a curated wardrobe of fabrics and silks for you to choose from. Most photos on my website were created using the studio’s wide selection of beautiful and elegant props and outfits. I strongly suggest you bring a seamless strapless bra and underwear that matches your skin tone. Some examples of personal items you can bring are a stretchy tube dress, an elegant robe or gown, and, if you are comfortable, lingerie or nice underwear. Please refer to the portfolio to see what style you like and to get inspired!

I have stretch marks, dark spots, or swelling could you edit them out?

Yes, stretch marks, dark spots, swelling and more will be edited upon request in your final Artistic Retouching.

Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the photoshoot.

After that, you will be able to select photos for your Fine Art Retouching and can also have them delivered within three days instead of two weeks for another $100 rush fee.
