Let's get real for a second. 9 months seems like a long time...until you're in it. Every mom I've talked to says how quickly their pregnancy has gone by. You're so busy learning, preparing, nesting, and down-right growing a human, that before you know, you're in the final week! You had the best ideas for decorating a nursery, crafting things for new baby and planning the hospital day bag and drive. Sometimes, things you wanted to do, just don't get done. Don't let photos be one of them. If you think ahead now (with a little help from me) you can schedule your sessions and not have to be scrambling last minute.
There are two photoshoots that Shore's Edge Photography offers to mom (& baby):
Maternity & Newborn.
Maternity photoshoots are typically done around 32 weeks. This ensures a nice round belly but without the discomfort that later weeks might bring. This is the optimal time for mom to be glowing.
Newborn shoots are done within the first two weeks of baby being born. This ensures those adorable, sleepy, peaceful photos and baby is easy to cooperate. It is understandable that this timeframe can be a hectic time settling in at home and people wanting to meet your precious little one but it allows the parents some alone time just snuggling with baby and you can tell family & guests that for those 3 hours, it's just going to be you. Lifestyle photography allows me to capture you in your environment, living your life as you would.
How to Schedule/Book
Book your maternity session now for the week that'll you be around 32 weeks. As time gets closer, we will nail down exact details, locations, and time.
For newborn sessions, we pre-pick 2 or 3 dates around your due date (as we all know babies are on their own time). That way, if baby comes after your due date, we still have dates held on the calendar for you.
And Shore's Edge Photography is offering a *NEW* special package...The Mermom! This package includes the photoshoot and goodies of both the basic Coastal & newborn Guppy packages, for $55 off!
