Preparing For Your Session


Nothing makes a woman glow more then carrying a child and here at Darkershadesofbrown Photography we want to help you remember that period in your life by offering creative photography for you to document it. You are about to do a very special and, for a few of you, once in a life time photo shoot! It’s worth it to take some time and prepare for it and finding Scranton maternity photographers to fit the needs of a modern mother to be is a tough task. Our goal in the portrait studio is to let you be who who are and capture the beautiful mother you are about to be.

On the day of your session, plan to relax and take it easy. Getting your hair and/or makeup done is a nice treat for yourself, and will definitely contribute to a more polished look. Choosing your outfit the night before and taking a nap on the day of the shoot will make you feel well-rested, relaxed and attractive.

A couple of hours before your session, remove any clothing that may cause lines or marks on the body.

Scarves, shawls and soft fluid fabrics make wonderful wraps for maternity portraits. Bring them along. Fabrics that cling to your curves also work well. Jeans and tops with subtle or no pattern will provide for a more contemporary look. I love all dresses, vintage and modern. The only thing I am not a big fan is whites. White is a difficult color to photograph during a natural light session. Off whites, pastels or bright tropical colors are better choices.

Keep accessories to a minimum since these can distract from a portrait.

Before the session, please discuss with me what you want them to be soft and intimate? Romantic? Contemporary? Classic? All this should be handled in the studio or via email at your consultation

Let me know about any birthmarks, scars or tattoos you may have. Do you want these left on final prints or removed?

Once the photo shoot begins, relax. Enjoy the intimacy and beauty of the moment. Revel in your glow. The most beautiful woman is the one about to become a mother.
