This past fall, I was so blessed as a CT maternity photographer to have so many maternity clients wanting fall maternity photos. This family reached out to me on Instagram. We chatted via email and they went ahead and booked both their newborn and maternity session. I first met this expecting mama when she came to the studio for her dress consultation.
CT Maternity Photographer: Your Dress Consultation
Dress consultations are such an important part of my process as a CT maternity photographer. This casual drop-in allows me to get to know you, before our session. And most importantly, it helps you get to know me! I have noticed that clients seem so much more relaxed at their session when we have chatted beforehand. Clients that have booked dress consultations also trust me, since I give them honest feedback about dress choices.
This mom selected four different dresses at her dress consultation. As a CT maternity photographer, I always encourage expecting moms to pick more dresses than we will probably get to. Why? Because especially when there is no toddler involved, we can actually get through a lot of maternity poses fairly quickly. I would rather have too many dresses than run out of options. Also, I love the variety that multiple dresses can give you for your session. This mom loves the color black, so we knew we had to make that happen. She was also partial to green, so that dress was included in her session as well.
Fall Maternity Session: CT Maternity Photographer
For this session, we had the most gorgeous night. It wasn’t too hot or too cold, pure perfection. My favorite part as a Connecticut maternity photographer was that this couple was up for anything! They trusted me with all of the maternity poses and I loved the result.
CT Maternity Photographer Recommendations
I always recommend that you book a maternity session with the photographer that you are using for your newborn photos. I suggest this as a CT maternity photographer for a variety of reasons. First, it helps you get to know your photographer. In a few short months (or weeks!), you will be trusting them with your newborn. You will feel so much more confident if you have had a chance to get to know them!
Second, the maternity session gives us a chance to brainstorm more about what you want your newborn session to look like. And finally, it will make it so that your newborn and maternity galleries are cohesive. If you want to put these images up in a nursery, it will help so much to have the shots taken by the same photographer.
I am so excited to work with this family in January when their little boy arrives!
