How beautiful is this sweet couple? Josh and Kendall are dear friends of mine. I’ve been friends with Kendall for nearly five years and was even a bridesmaid in her and Josh’s wedding last year. They are now expecting their first baby and I had the honor of photographing their Charleston maternity session!
If you’re expecting and would like to schedule your own Charleston maternity session, here are the answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions that I hear:
When should I schedule my Charleston maternity session?
Maternity sessions are typically scheduled for when you are 32-36 weeks along. This timing allows us to capture images of that gorgeous round belly without risking the opportunity to take photos, should baby decide to arrive before that 40-week mark.
What should I wear?
Whatever makes you feel the most beautiful! From jeans and a cute top to a gorgeous maternity gown, find something that makes you feel like the amazing woman you are and be sure to wear comfy shoes. I love trying new locations to find the best lighting, so we want your feet to feel good as we explore.How am I supposed to pose?

Leave this one up to me. While I love relaxed sessions where you are just lovin’ on your spouse, I will provide you with gentle suggestions on how to move your body, where to place your hands, etc. for the most flattering images. I promise not to leave you standing there feeling awkward! 😉
I hope you take the time to truly celebrate this moment in your life. While some days are long and you will likely feel uncomfortable at times, mama – you are a superwoman, literally growing a tiny human. You are beautiful and deserve to have a collection of photos that will help you remember this incredible experience.
