Maternity Sessions INfo and Pricing

Congratulations on your bundle of joy! We LOVE maternity sessions because they celebrate new life and big upcoming changes to your world; whether this is your first child or your sixth! Our maternity sessions focus on telling your story and your personality through capturing timeless images for you to treasure forever. Thank you for considering Iris Imprints Photography to be part of this precious time of your life! Here's a little more about what you can expect from your session with us!

What kind of session would work best for me?

We tailor the session to you, but have two base sessions to choose from. The first one is our Premiere Session. This session includes professional hair and make-up to ensure you look your very best! Enjoy a sparkling soda or juice and light snacks as you are pampered like you deserve to be. Once the professionals are done, we'll shoot for approximately 2 hours. You can include as many outfit or location changes within that time.

If you prefer to do your own hair and make-up, or really don't ever wear it, the Minimalist Session might work better for you. We will still spend about 2 hours capturing your images, and typically this is all done on location, rather than starting at our studio. Again, outfit and location changes are welcome within the 2 hour time-frame.

Can other people come to the session?

Of course! We welcome your immediate family (father & any siblings) to be part of your session. We will typically shoot a few images by yourself, with your partner, and some of the entire family if you have more children. If you have a unique family dynamic, such as a surrogacy or open adoption, those members are welcome to join you as well. We really want this story to reflect your journey and understand not all children are born into a traditional family.

What does the Session Fee Include?

The session fee includes a wardrobe consultation (skype/facetime available for those that live far and cannot meet in person), the photographer's time during the session, up to 2 hours with unlimited outfit & location changes in that time frame, and a View & Order session about 1 week after your session. At the View & Order session, the fun really begins, when you will choose your images. You can expect to see approximately 30 lightly edited. Once you choose your images and prints, those will be masterfully retouched as needed.

Our Premiere Session fee is $300, and the Minimalist Option is $175. Prints and digital images start at $65.00 and go up from there. We value prints and the ability for you to purchase those images you love. While we prefer prints, we understand the value of having a digital image for archiving should something happen to your products such as damage while moving, and therefore include a high-resolution image with any prints you purchase. Many of our maternity clients choose a few bigger wall art pieces and an album. You can view our sample at a no-obligation consultation before you book your session. Our current pricing guide is shown below. Keep in mind, this can change at any time. Once you book, you will lock in those prices.

When should I book a session?

You can book your session at any time! We recommend the following time-frames but always work with you.

Announcements and gender reveals - Those sessions are best suited for weeks 12-22. You may or not be 'showing' this early, but generally these images are less about the baby bump and more about the exciting news you are sharing!

Traditional maternity sessions - For single baby pregnancies, we schedule these around 28-35 weeks. Typically women get pretty uncomfortable around the 35w mark. This is not to say that we can't do them closer to your due date. Another reason we try to avoid them last minute, is so that you can have your View and Order session before the baby comes. Also a lot of our families prefer to have about a month between their maternity and newborn photos, both for scheduling and financially.

Thank you for looking through our Maternity Guide. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
