The

Maternity

Experience

M Y  P H I L O S O P H Y | I’m sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. It’s all very exciting but it can also be somewhat overwhelming. Your body is going through a lot of changes, you may be feeling tired, irritated and even unattractive. 99% of my clients are unhappy with at least one part of their body.  But it will all go away so soon! My goal as a maternity photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When my clients feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, it results in genuine, joyful images! When I think back to my maternity days, I remember amazing memories.... but most of the moments I remember really well are the instances that were captured in my pictures. They are priceless to me. I didn't have my maternity pictures professionally done and I regret it still today. I can never go back to that time when I was growing a little human being in my belly. Now I don't have one good picture that I can frame and put up on my wall as a memory. I'm sure you're excited and happy and can't wait to meet your little one. The images we'll create will be a huge part of the experience..... shouldn’t it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I think so! My goal is to not only to capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they'll never forget.

T H E  P R O C E S S | One way I ensure that moms-to-be enjoy the BEST photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with my clients. I try my best to make sure we are the PERFECT fit for each other before officially booking. A client should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! I achieve this by sending out an online questionnaire, asking you about your hobbies and likes. This helps me to get to know you better and then I am able to give a lot of feedback as to what locations, outfits, days and times would work best, to make sure you look your absolute best fabulous self! During the session I take a LOT of pictures! Sometimes thousands! I do that to ensure I got all of the possible angles to guarantee you will look your absolute best!  Many images take longer than two hours each to complete.  But, the results are magical! See the before and after below.

After all artistic editing is done I send the images to you via an online gallery for your final approval. This is when you can tell me if you would like some changes done! I always work with my clients to make sure that they absolutely LOVE their pictures!

Why Invest?
Pregnancy is such an exciting time! Very soon you may forget what it was like to be expecting. Some women say they felt beautiful during pregnancy. Many others struggle with their self-image. Whether or not you love how you look, a professional photography session will make you feel beautiful, but only if you hire the right person! I put my heart and soul into every single one of my images to make sure that you look your absolute gorgeous self! Just read what some of my other clients had to say about their maternity experience with me:

"I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take maternity pics since I gained about 60 pounds but wow did Arina know exactly what angles looked best on me. Thank you so much for guiding the whole photo shoot. Where to put my hands, my face, moving my hair, choosing the location and creating such magical photos ❤️ You are a true professional and you made it so easy." - Tudi Semenova

 "Arina went beyond my expectations!! She does so much for her clients, is super fun and easy to work with and everyone was blown away by the end result pictures." - Agapia Rumpel
"Her work is both beautiful and imaginative. You can tell she puts a lot of time and love into each photo. I've worked with several other photographers but wouldn't pick anyone of them after working with Arina. If you have an idea she will make it come to life! Highly recommend!" - April Warner

Digital Files
A few days after your photo session you will receive an online gallery with unedited images to choose poses from.  Once you choose your favorites I will begin working my magic on them.
All edits include smoothing of skin, fixing fly aways, whitening teeth, brightening up eyes, removing objects that are distracting from the background.
You can request extra edits, such as thinning out body parts, adding volume to hair, fixing teeth and more.My goal is to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the final results!
Weather
In case of bad weather and or natural disaster we will reschedule the session. I constantly check the weather forecast and will communicate with you well in advance with any concerns and changes of plans that may need to take place.
Locations
I'm often asked on what is a good location for photo sessions. I've decided to write a whole blog post with all my favorite locations. Here is a link: https://www.arinasizemorephotography.com/single-post/best-locations-for-a-photo-shoot-around-seattle-area
I'm also open to new locations as well!
Maternity Gowns
Maternity Gowns are included with your packages. Depending on which option you choose is the amount of maternity gowns you can use from my client closet collection. Here is a link with all maternity gowns I have available
