There are so many different ideas and themes for your baby bump! If you look on Pinterest, there are thousands of creations!

Remember 9 Months of Pregnancy.

There are plenty of ideas that surround the full 9 months of pregnancy. One of my favorite ideas includes a time lapse that covers every stage. Even though professional photos are great, you could even do this yourself! Keeping track of the way your body changes throughout pregnancy is a great way to create and remember memories of that special time in your life.

If interested, I can schedule a series of shots that outlay every phase of your pregnancy through imagery. When you finally decide to have your baby shower, brag about your captured time table leading up to the event. Not all professional maternity photographers in Surprise, Arizona provide their clients with personalized service and creativity throughout the experience. At DJP, we take pride in going above and beyond your expectations.

Maternity Photographer FAQ’s

for Expecting Mothers in Surprise, Arizona

What suggestions do you have for first timers?

I’ve learned that quality communication between my clients and I prior to maternity photoshoots help out tremendously. It’s good for me to know what you’re uncomfortable with before planning a shot list. Even though I totally understand why (I’m a mom of 4), I’d also encourage you to not be so afraid to show a little belly during a photo or two. There are a number of creative ways we can show your baby bump without showing too much skin.

What if I need to reschedule my maternity photo shoot?

For each of my photography sessions, I charge a retainer fee that’s normally $50. If you were to cancel within 48hours of your shoot, I’d keep this deposit as a fee due to schedule restraints. If you need to reschedule, I ask that you do so a few days prior to your shoot for the same reasoning. But, I will not charge you for the inconvenience.

Can I Incude Some of My Other Children in the Photoshoot?

Yes! The more family members, the better. I’ve even encourages spouses or significant others to join. It can be intimidating being the center of attention when you don’t feel as beautiful. From my experiences with coupled maternity photography sessions, the more people that join you, the more comfortable you’ll be. Comfort for moms tends to equals natural smiles and amazing photos!

What if I Decide to Add Newborn Photos Later on?

Good question. I have packages that include fresh 48, newborn, toddler and growing child portraits. My pricing model allows you to create your own custom plan when the time comes. Since you were already a previous client, I would still apply the discount. The main benefit of scheduling each session on the front end is availability. If you wait, then you risk my schedule being full.

How do I go about planning ideas for maternity photos?

You don’t! I ask you a number of questions during our discovery call to determine what type of shoot suits your personality best. When you hire me as your professional maternity photographer in Surprise, Arizona, I don’t leave you hanging like some hobbyists can. This is the real deal. We lay out every shot of the portrait session in order to maximize time and create a quality product you’ll be able to enjoy for a long time. All you need to worry about is keeping that baby inside until after the photoshoot! 🙂

In order to capture the beauty of maternal photography, you must consider the surroundings. Images, shadows, or movements in the background can become a distraction and effect the final product. In my opinion, we’ll want your baby bump to be the main focus of the images. If you plan on having your partner join you, let’s discuss some creative ways to incorporate everyone!

There are plenty of aspects to consider, but no session is the same – but that’s why I love photography. Allow me to help you find the perfect angle to remember with other memories of your child.

Selecting a Photographer.

A photographer that’s been through the pregnancy process tends to help during maternity photo sessions. An abnormal belly can be quite uncomfortable – and being able to relate creates a comfort level with my clients and I.

The lighting and positioning of your stomach is key during a maternal photoshoot. In addition to effects, communication is important as well. This helps me understand your expectations and desires. If you’re looking for a professional relationship once your newborn arrives, it would be a pleasure to capture the early moments of your child as well.
