The Rushbys

Maternity photography, what to expect.

Here are some frequently asked questions that will help you to understand what to expect from your maternity session. If you can’t see the answer to your questions, please get in touch. We are more than happy to help.

We recommend 32-34 weeks if possible but can adjust if this doesn’t fit to your timeline. At this time your bump is generally carrying higher and you will hopefully feel more comfortable when standing and posing.

We will send a full preparation guide with a list of suggested items to bring with you. We have some maternity gowns in the studio as well as fabric drapes that we can use creatively.

A session is usually 1 – 2 hours as we like to allow time for changing outfits and working at a relaxed pace. We don’t want you to feel rushed.

Absolutely! We encourage your partner and other children to be a part of this photo session. We have even had some fur babies before.

We recommend doing your hair and make-up as if you are going on a night out. We have worked with professional hair and make-up artists in the past and are happy to quote for this service to be added on.

We will talk before the session about your comfort levels. We have some outfit options/suggestions that enable you to be completely covered. If you are ready to expose some serious bump then great. We will work in a way that makes you comfortable.

It usually takes 1-2 weeks to edit a selection of images to present to you.

This depends on the artwork option you choose. Many of our printed products are handmade in Italy so can take up to 3 weeks to arrive after they have been ordered.
