Now that I have more time to photograph portrait sessions, I’ve been thinking about what I enjoy photographing the most. It’s hard to play favorites, since pretty much any opportunity to get behind the camera is a good one. But I do love maternity sessions and I’ve been wanting to offer more portrait sessions in my favorite spring fields this year, and the combination of a beautiful “bump” with a spring landscape seems just right.

I’m excited to introduce “The Bump” mini maternity sessions. The maternity mini sessions will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2011, in Virginia Beach. Directions will be provided upon securing the session with a contract and deposit.

What do the sessions include?

They include 20 minutes for the mom-to-be and dad-to-be and a minimum of 15 high-resolution digital files along with printing rights. (Children can be included in some of the photos for an additional $25.)

Clients will receive the rights to print photos at any size and at any quantity since they are receiving the high-resolution digital files. This means you can also share them on Facebook, use them in scrapbooking and lots more! And I don’t leave my clients hanging – every session comes with a print release and advice on how to get high quality, affordable photos from a professional online lab. The session fee includes all of this for $250. A $100 deposit along with an online contract secures the session.

This is perfect for those expectant moms who will be between 32 and 36 weeks pregnant at the time of April 23, 2011. (More or less – some clients like to have pregnancy photos taken before they hit 32 weeks and some don’t mind photos after 36 weeks, but this is a good guideline!)

Email or call 757.406.6036 to book a session.

Sessions are very limited and will fill up quickly. More info below and be sure to check out the sample photos in the post below as well.

Please share this with your expectant friends. :)
