i'd love to hear from you!
As a Los Angeles Newborn Photographer, I’m lucky enough to meet many of my clients before their baby arrives. That’s because most of my clients book both a maternity and newborn session.
Three reasons to book a maternity session with your newborn session
1. Your maternity photos tell an important part of your family story
As anyone who has been pregnant knows, your transformation as a parent doesn’t start with the birth of your baby. Pregnancy is an intense time of growth… for all of you. Your maternity session is the perfect time to honor the hard work and wonder of pregnancy, celebrate your last days as a couple (or a smaller family), and create some keepsakes for your child that will show them just how eagerly they were awaited.
2. You’ll be more relaxed during your newborn session
Booking a maternity session is a great way to get to know your newborn photographer. The time you spend together during your maternity session can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your newborn session. I love getting to know my clients during a maternity session and seeing them again after their baby is born; it feels like we’re old friends. This added familiarity can be especially valuable if your newborn has older siblings joining the session.
3. Your maternity session helps you “take it all in”
The last weeks of pregnancy go by in a flash. You may be feeling stressed as you gather everything you need for your baby and try to mentally prepare for birth and beyond. Your maternity session is a wonderful opportunity to slow down and appreciate the anticipation. Your session can be a relaxing solo experience, a time to reconnect with your partner, or a chance to share the spotlight with your older child. In any case, you’re sure to leave your session feeling even more excited to meet your baby.
