I love maternity images that are simple and classic.  Maternity photography sessions are often overlooked because of the excitement of baby and all of the preparation that needs to be done.  Some expecting moms just don’t feel like getting in front of a camera.  Maternity sessions with McCarthy Photography are done in approx 30 mins and they are painless 🙂  I have a couple of these maternity gowns (pictured below) and some other fabric that can be used creatively for images.

The most important thing to remember a couple of hours before your session is to remove any tight clothing like socks or anything tight around the waist (anything that has an elastic band that leaves a mark on your tummy).  I always send out info to my clients to remind them of this but when I first started out I had a couple of sessions where I had to edit sock lines and tummy lines…….not fun at all 🙂  Extra editing is never fun.  It’s easy to forget about this, especially in the winter and you’d be surprised at just how much of a mark there can be from an innocent little sock 🙂
