Your Iowa City maternity photographer should make you feel beautiful. I know just how hard it is towards the end of your pregnancy to feel special and beautiful. I think maternity sessions are especially important for first time moms. It is so nice to have one day of pampering before you give birth. As an Iowa City maternity photographer, I encourage my mothers to be to make a day of your maternity session. Start off with a manicure and pedicure, get your hair and makeup done, and even get a prenatal massage. Self care is so important at this stage of your pregnancy. Making you feel beautiful is my specialty. I have carefully selected handcrafted, couture gowns to ensure you feel like the gorgeous momma you are! Check out my selection of gowns, guaranteed to make you feel like a supermodel. Your premier Iowa City maternity photographer has you covered. Let’s work together to document this special milestone in your family’s life and celebrate you. 

Build trust with your Iowa City maternity photographer

Trusting your Iowa City maternity photographer is one of the most important things to do before your newborn photography session. I want parents to relax during their newborn sessions. The best way to do this is to trust that your Iowa City newborn photographer knows what they are doing and that you can trust them with your baby. It is really hard to trust someone with your baby that you have never met. This is one of the reasons that I do consultations, but also another reason that I encourage parents to consider a maternity session. Once you get to know me, you will be able to relax during your newborn session. I tend to have the best feedback from parents that have booked a maternity session first with me. I think the biggest reason for this is the foundation of trust that was laid. You know your images will be up to par, and you know your baby is in good hands with this Iowa City maternity photographer. 

Ensure your Iowa City maternity photographer knows your family

A maternity session is the perfect time for your Iowa City maternity photographer to get to know your family. Ensuring your Iowa City maternity photographer knows your family before your newborn session is key to the newborn session running smoothly. Letting me get to know your family first is one of the best things we can do to set ourselves up for a successful newborn photo session. If I know what your child likes, what to expect from them, and how to best entertain them before baby arrives, we should be set for the newborn session. Most kids have a blast at sessions, even maternity photography sessions, where they are not the main subject of the photos. This is because of my interactions with the kids. I love to give them “jobs” and make them feel important to the maternity photo session.

Letting your children come into the studio prior to a newborn session is a great way to set everything up for success. I think children are able to do much better in a familiar environment. I find that little kids in particular benefit from a visit to the studio pre baby. Your Iowa City maternity photography session is the best time to do that! We can get to know one another, find all the toys in the studio, and create a comfortable environment for your child. I know when I have kids come back, even a year later, they walk in like they own the studio. It is so funny and warms this Iowa City maternity photographer ‘s heart to know I have created such a fun, welcoming environment for them. I do alway warn, I have had many kids cry when needing to leave the studio after their session. We will make sure they have a blast. It is so nice when they are already comfortable with the studio prior to adding another child into the space, let alone a newborn. It most definitely is not a requirement, but it always leads to good results for little ones!
