Lori’s maternity style focuses on the love, celebration and anticipation of your little one growing within. Your body is going through an extraordinary transformation that is unique to this world and deserves to be documented. Maternity pictures are so incredibly special, capturing an amazing and magical moment in time. Sessions may take place inside the Lori Mason Photography private studio in Solon or at an outdoor location of your choice.

HOW MANY WEEKS IS IDEAL FOR A MATERNITY SESSION?

Your maternity experience is best captured between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy.

HOW SOON SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY SESSION?

To give each family the best service possible, Lori books a limited number of portrait sessions per month. It is recommended that clients book their Maternity Session early in their 2nd trimester to ensure availability.

WHERE AND WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY OUTDOOR MATERNITY PHOTO SESSION?

A maternity photo session can take place anywhere you’d like – a park, a beach, a field, your home, anywhere! If you’re not sure where to hold your session, Lori can make suggestions based on your preferences and goals. Outdoor photo sessions are held just before sunset to ensure beautifully lit portraits.

DO YOU PROVIDE DRESSES/FABRICS/WRAPS?

Yes. Our studio provides a full wardrobe that includes an exquisite selection of beautiful fabrics for draping as well as a collection of stunning gowns.

CAN MY PARTNER OR MY CHILD BE IN THE PICTURES?

Absolutely! Your significant other and children are welcome and encouraged to be a part of this amazing experience.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?

Your maternity session is the perfect reason to splurge on professional hair and makeup. Your beauty and confidence will shine through in your images! However if it’s not in the budget, your going-out-on-a-special-date makeup and hair is fine too. Natural looking fake lashes can really flatter your eyes. Don’t forget about your mani and pedi as well!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY MATERNITY SESSION?

Wear whatever you feel comfortable and confident in. I provide this list to my clients:

  • Neutral strapless bra and seamless underwear

  • Black bra and panty set (for those black background belly shots)

  • White/ivory bra and panty set (for those white background belly shots)

  • Lingerie sets

  • Bandeau top

  • Regular jeans (not maternity ones) and camisole top

  • Buttoned shirt or blouse

  • Long, flowy or form-fitting dress (e.g. tube dress or a summer maxi dress)

  • Button ups sweater or cardigans

  • Men’s button ups top (for significant other/husband)

  • Coordinating outfits (for significant other/husband and/or children)

  • Any favorite scarves, accessories, jewelries, etc.

  • If you are interested in doing artistic nudes, please avoid any tight undergarments that would leave marks on your skin.

DO I HAVE TO BE NUDE?

Not at all. All of our maternity sessions are customized and tailored to the wants and needs of each client. Some clients prefer clean and simple artistic nude photographs while others prefer to be fully clothed.

SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT STRETCH MARKS?

Lori wants you to feel beautiful and relaxed during your photography experience and love your final images. Complete professional retouching is included in your session and she will work with you to understand what, if any, retouching you would like. High-end retouching techniques are used to enhance photos while keeping the image looking real and amazing.

THIS IS MY FIRST STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE. WILL YOU GUIDE ME AND HELP ME POSE?

Yes, of course! Even if it is your first professional photography experience, Lori’s goal is to make sure you feel comfortable, beautiful, pampered and confident. During your personalized session, she will guide you through elegant poses and will focus on angles that bring out your most beautiful self.  LMP knows how to make you look your best!

WILL MY IMAGES STAY PRIVATE?

Privacy is taken seriously and your maternity images will not be used in any way without your consent.

Lori was amazing when she took my maternity photos. She was willing to travel to an outdoor location of my choosing. She made my husband and I feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Our photos turned out beautiful. They really captured our love and the excitement we shared anticipating our first child. Moments that we will cherish forever. I highly recommend Lori Mason Photography.” - S. Berglund
