– How to Prepare for Your Hoboken Maternity Session –

Hoboken maternity photography session

Maternity sessions may be my favorite type of session to photograph. There is just something about the excitement and anticipation of expecting a new baby. Even though maternity sessions can be pretty magical, preparing for your session takes a lot of time and effort – I’ve been there! From planning outfits, to finding the perfect time and location, and wrangling big sisters or brothers-to-be – it can be a lot. Today I’m sharing some quick tips on how to prepare for your maternity session.

Iโ€™m participating in a blog circle this week and am sharing a link to a wonderful photographer in Portland! Make sure to check out her link at the end of this post.

  1. Wardrobe: What you wear for your session makes a huge impact on your final images! Plan your outfit first, and then work on coordinating your other family members. Long dresses photograph beautifully for maternity sessions, and tend to be flattering and comfortable for moms-to-be. I love a neutral color palate for maternity sessions. Try colors like cream, beige, soft greens, blues, and pinks. Avoid black, red, and neon colors as they can be distracting in your final images.
  2. Scheduling: Maternity sessions typically take place between 27 and 34 weeks of pregnancy.  The goal is to have your session when you have a visible baby bump, but before you get too uncomfortable. Reach out as soon as you are comfortable, and we can get your date on the calendar!
  3. Time of Day: If you’re planning for your Hoboken maternity session to take place on the waterfront, golden hour is the best option! The last hour before sunset will bring soft, glowy light over the water.
  4. Location: The Hoboken maternity session featured in this blog post took place at Pier A in Hoboken, NJ. The pier provided plenty of variety for this gallery; we walked down the path, up through the beautiful fall foliage, and finally ended by the waterfront to get some images with the city skyline in the background!

Here are some highlights from this beautiful session:
