Lindy saw some of our photographs from a friend’s maternity session and loved them. She also loved that we are located intown since she lives in the Inman Park neighborhood, which is close to our studio in Grant Park. After speaking about the options available, she booked a maternity session at the park location and scheduled her maternity fitting at the studio.
Lindy requested to add on hair and makeup services when she heard that our HMUA would keep it natural and classic and not make her look crazy. If you’ve had a bad experience in the past with having your hair and makeup done, there’s no need to fear! I’ve personally vetted each member of my team and they are absolutely incredible. We’ll discuss your specific needs, and your vision! Based on that information, we’ll pair you with the perfect artist for you from the team.
When Lindy came to the studio, she brought along one of her own dresses that she knew she wanted to wear. It was fall, and I absolutely loved her choice of a plaid shirtdress! I immediately pulled one of our studio scarves and showed her how it would look with her dress. She also had a cream cardigan sweater that looked wonderful with it as well. The studio wardrobe is a resource available to clients should they wish to use it. Many clients opt to wear their own clothing, and we love that just as much! We’ll provide you with a really helpful and simple style guide, and we’ll provide you with as much hands on support as you need in pulling everything together! We discussed options for her husband to wear with her dress, and then moved on to trying on studio pieces. Lindy wanted to have a few open belly photos, so she chose an ivory split front strapless gown. The best thing about our split front gowns is that they can be worn both open and closed! So if baring your belly isn’t your thing, no worries at all! It’s all about your preference and comfort level.
The day of their session, I arrived at the studio a few minutes early. Lindy was having her hair and makeup done there, and I wanted to introduce myself to her husband, Jeff and chat a bit. Jeff was such a friendly guy, and we looked through a couple of the options they had brought for him. After making final choices, we were ready to head to the location and set off for it!
Lindy had warned me she was a little nervous in front of the camera. I reassured her that was normal and that I’d take care of everything for her. Unless you’re a professional model, I don’t expect you to be 110% confident in front of the camera! I’ll make sure you’re in the best positions and shoot from the most flattering angles for you. I’ll even step in and adjust your dress or hair if I see something that needs fixing! Your job is to have fun and enjoy the experience. After all, you’re only pregnant with this baby once. After we’d been shooting for a few minutes, Lindy relaxed, and started smiling and enjoying herself. I loved watching the natural interaction between her and Jeff and the loving looks they exchanged during.
Here are a few of my favorites!
