We started the session at my home studio, which is based in Evergreen SW Calgary, afterwards we took a short trip to Fish Creek Park to continue the rest of the session.
Maternity sessions are so much fun, -The session is all about YOU!

Welcome to Bebe Newborn Photography Maternity Sessions
This is a time for new beginnings…
It is my joy and honor to capture and preserve this precious time for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR MATERNITY SESSION….
When you message me to book your session, we will schedule your shoot day and time. Once the session fee is received, your appointment will be confirmed.
Your personality and preferences are important to allow your true self to shine through in your images. Please feel free to bring a special quilt or blanket, baby shoes or other items belonging to your unborn child.
In order to get the right images, it will be necessary to take several shots of the same pose.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION?
It is recommended to plan your maternity photography session when you're 32-37 weeks pregnant.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Consider wearing one of your favorite maternity outfits that is also comfortable and flattering to your form. Mid tone colors work best. Try to avoid busy patterns which can be distracting. A long flowing gown is also a great choice. I have a selection of beautiful gowns if you would like to simply “show up” to your appointment stress-free!
Please avoid wearing tightly-fitted elastic waistbands and socks for few hours before your shoot as they cause indentations in your skin.
What happens if we need to reschedule or cancel our session?
No one wants to be photographed if they are feeling lousy or the weather isn’t cooperating. Should someone in your family get sick or the weather isn’t being kind to us, the session can absolutely be rescheduled. We will work together to find the next available date for both of us.
How long does my session last?
Maternity sessions are usually 1-2 hours giving you plenty of time to fit in at least 2-3 outfit changes as well as shots of you alone and with your partner and/or children.
How long do I have to wait to see my pics?
Your images will be available 1-2 weeks following your shoot.
Will you tell me how to pose during my shoot?
Absolutely! I will give you lots of ideas and directions throughout your session to help you feel at ease. Sometimes the best photos are the candid ones because that is when you are at your most relaxed. Ie will coach you along and make you feel comfortable and confident. This is your time to shine!
Who should I bring with me to my shoot?
Feel free to bring your partner, children, mom, or a friend as long as you’re comfortable in front of them, if not then you can also come solo!
What if there is bad weather on the day of my shoot?
Don’t worry, we will leave 1-3 days open during the week for reschedules. We will notify you asap if we do have to reschedule, however we usually only reschedule if there is either a high chance of rain, OR if it’s going to be too cold to be comfortable. If it’s overcast don’t worry your pictures will still look amazing!
Where do I change my clothes?
Be prepared to turn your car into a dressing room! Also, feel free to bring a towel or blanket to cover up with between changes. We may do a little walking so be sure to bring a pair of flip-flops for in-between scene changes.
How many images will we see from our session?
Expect about 30-50 images in your proofing gallery to view.
Should I schedule a studio or on-location setting? What time of day is best?
I love shooting both in studio and outdoors, so I like to offer both!
Do you photograph newborns?
Yes I do!
