Maternity FAQ

All you wanted to know about the “SEEN” Women’s Photo Session Experience

It’s YOUR special time and we encourage you to have your pregnancy photo shoot when you feel ready and called to have this experience. Although it’s recommended to schedule the shoot between 29 and 35 weeks, we understand if your schedule might not allow for that and are happy to work with you on timing. We’ve even photographed mums as early as 6 months pregnant, and they were thrilled with the experience.

Dads are welcome and encouraged to join in on the photo shoot – they can and should be a part of this special experience! If you’re bringing children along, please bring someone to help keep them occupied, and don’t forget to bring your furry baby too!

Before the photo shoot, wwe’ll work with you to create a mood board based on your inspirations and preferences. We’ll also provide recommendations, but ultimately we want you to wear what makes YOU feel good. Some clients bring their entire closet, while others rent or buy specific pieces. You can even wear multiple outfits during the shoot, so you don’t have to limit yourself to just one look.

Once you’ve booked your session with us, we’ll send you a detailed guide to help make your shoot preparations a breeze. To prevent marks on your skin, we recommend avoiding tight underwear and clothing on the day of the session. Additionally, consider getting a manicure and pedicure a day or two in advance for an extra polished look.

Our Melbourne portrait photography studio is located in Bayside Melbourne – Cheltenham. Our studio is built inside an architecturally designed character-filled heritage building, a step away from Westfield Southland shopping Centre and Victoria Golf Club.

If you decide to have an artistic nude pregnancy photo session, rest assured that your comfort is our top priority. You can choose to be completely nude, partially covered, or wrapped, and we will ensure that certain parts of your body remain discreetly covered. Our style is focused on capturing the natural beauty of your body shape.

We use styling, posing, lighting, and angles to accentuate your best features and minimize any areas you may not be as confident about. Your session also includes complete professional retouching, so you don’t have to worry about any imperfections that may bother you.

Even if you’ve never had a photo shoot before, we’ll ensure that you feel comfortable, relaxed, and enjoy the process. We’ll guide you through elegant poses and angles that flatter your body shape. With our expertise, you’re in good hands, and we’re confident that you’ll have a fantastic selection of images to choose from.

Our turnaround time is 4 weeks and sometimes sooner! Please let us know if you have any specific time frames and we will try to do our best to deliver.

Our top-selling products are a 9×12″ photobook and a 32″ metal wall art print. We offer a hassle-free artwork planning process where we show you how your photos will look on your wall before making any final decisions.
