Orlando maternity photography sessions can be photographed in your home, in studio or at an outdoor location of your choice. The softest and most flattering light is 1-2 hours after sunrise or before sunset for outdoor sessions. Indoor sessions take place on weekdays between the hours of 10am and 2pm. Maternity sessions are usually about 45-60 minutes.

The g// I recommend bringing along a favorite toy that you won’t mind in your photos and some non-messy snacks. Sessions with children are child-led. We will have fun with lots of tickles and snuggles, explore and take breaks for snacks as needed. I recommend a special treat afterwards like going for ice cream or a favorite activity so your little ones are excited about the whole experience.
