 PRICING

HeadShot Love approaches maternity photo sessions a bit differently that other professional pregnancy photographers.

What is unique about what we offer is that all of our maternity photo sessions include:

ALL of your edited images, at full resolution and logo free. We know how hard it is to be asked to choose only a selection of your photos so at HeadShot Love we believe that you should have the photos you pay for. You will receive between 100 and 150  full resolution and web optimized logo free images so that it’s easy for you to upload them to Facebook or to place online orders for prints. This way you OWN your images forever and don’t have to keep coming back to us to re-order prints. In fact, you get complete control of how many copies and what sizes you get to print.

a sharable online gallery with all of your photos. You have the option to send the link to your online gallery with your friends and family, on Facebook or twitter or keep it a secret if you prefer.

HALF HOUR SESSIONS cost $200 and are the most common choice for our clients. They usually involve a couple of outfit changes and one location of your choice (studio, in home or outdoors).

ONE HOUR SESSIONS cost $350 and are recommended for clients who desire to have both studio and natural light photos. One hour sessions are a bit more leisurely and permit for lots of changes, extra props and creative play.

 SCHEDULING, CONCEPT and INSPIRATION

Once we connect via email or phone we will create the concept for your shoot. Whether you already have an idea of what you’d like your photos to look like or need a little inspiration, we will put our creative minds at work and make the perfect game plan for your maternity photo shoot. We will invite you to check out our Pinterest Inspiration Board and pick some of your favorites. We will talk about location, outfits, props and choose a date that works for everybody involved. Both weekdays and week-ends are available. The time of the day best suited for natural light maternity photos is within an hour of sunset or sunrise. For studio maternity photoshoots the time of the day does not matter since the shoot is taking place indoors.

 LOCATIONS:

Your best maternity photoshoot locations are the ones that best support and reflect your vision for your maternity photoshoot. You may want something very artistic like a black and white silhouette which would be best in a studio or a dreamy natural setting. Or you may want to have your session in your home where your family can easily join, at the beach or downtown Charleston. During our consultation we will discuss the best options for you and offer you the best of our professional expertise. Don’t hesitate to contact us! You may see below some examples!

Outdoors:

  • A Park Or Plantation

Something to keep in mind with each maternity photo session is that choosing a versatile location is important. Here is an example of a photo session at Charleston Towne Landing, which has a selection of tall grasses, trees and a variety of natural settings.

  • The Beach- Having your pregnancy and maternity photos done at the beach it’s very convenient., especially if you want to bring your four legged family member along. Here are some examples of photos done in the soft golden light of the sunset. The photos below were taken at Folly Beach and Sullivan’s Beach in Charleston SC.

Studio Pregnancy Photos:

The advantage of having pregnancy photos done in the studio is that you have all the privacy you desire and you don’t depend on the weather. You can also choose to create more unique and artistic photos.

There is a particular beauty that comes through in a maternity photos. “Radiant”, “glowing”, “simply beautiful”, are just a few of the things that are often used to describe a woman during her pregnancy. I hope you go for it and choose to have photos done. I hope I’m the one to take them. I would love to show you the beauty we get to see…
