CHARLOTTE NC MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY

Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body

Maternity portraits are a once in a lifetime opportunity for each baby. This is your chance to capture you and your family intimately interacting with your baby while still in the womb. And just imagine how happy your child will be as he/she grows and sees photos of you with him/her inside. 

 
 
 
 

MATERNITY FAQ

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE MATERNITY PORTRAITS?

Baby bumps are best photographed between 30-36 weeks when your belly is beautifully round and you’re also still able to stand/sit/walk/pose for an hour or so without discomfort. I recommend you schedule a session during the first or second trimester to ensure availability as we are usually booked 4-6 weeks in advance.

HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE AND WHERE?

Maternity sessions last 1 - 1.5 hours. We can do either indoor or outdoor within 25 miles of my studio. I shoot in a variety of locations all around the city. If you have a special location in mind, please don’t hesitate to ask me if it’s suitable for photography.

DOES YOUR STUDIO HAVE MATERNITY DRESSES?

We have 50+ maternity dresses and fabric wraps in various styles, sizes and colors for you to choose (free to use at the session). You may use up to 2 of our wraps or dresses during your session at no charge. We’d love to photograph you in outfits you’re comfortable in as well, so feel free to bring your favorite maternity outfit if you’d like. In addition to using our dresses for free at your session, if you'd like to use one of our dresses for your Baby Shower or Gender Reveal, be sure to ask about our rental program. (for booked clients only).

DO YOU OFFER MAKEUP ARTISTRY

We partner with a few awesome local makeup artists! We can provide the listing after you book. Artist services and prices vary.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST AND HOW DO I BOOK?

The final cost will depend on the package and optional products you choose. The smallest package is $450 which includes a $150 booking fee, 10 edited digital photos, and a print release. To confirm your session, the booking fee and a signed agreement are required up front. The balance of the package is due no later than 24 hours prior to the session date. Additional Digitals, Albums, Canvases, and other optional print products are also available for purchase. Please contact us for more details or to book.

CAN I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION TOO?

YES! In fact, you’ll save $50 in booking fees plus earn freebies by booking the Maternity and Newborn sessions at the same time as a bundle. We’ll add your due date to the calendar initially, then firm up an actual newborn session date when your baby arrives. Additionally, we can book your baby’s milestone and first birthday sessions as part of a bundle with additional savings.

CAN FAMILY MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN THE PHOTO SESSION?

YES! We love nothing more than for spouses and children to participate in the shoot! Studies show that as your child grows and sees himself/herself in family photos, they feel more loved, connected, and experience a boost in self-esteem.

DO YOU SELL DIGITALS, PRINTS, BOOKS, OR CANVAS?

Yes, Lisa Yvette Photography is a full service studio offering not only portrait sessions, but also high quality print and keepsake products. Please contact us to inquire about detailed pricing and available products.

WHEN WILL WE GET TO SEE THE PHOTOS?

You will see a soft edit of your photos on the day of your session. A full edit of your beautiful photo gallery, ordering and receiving your prints from our lab will take some time. Please allow 1-2 weeks for digitals and 2-3 weeks for product delivery.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE? 

We understand emergencies can and do happen. To avoid rescheduling fees, please give us 24 hours notice if possible. You’ll be rescheduled to the next available date. Note: We will only reschedule ‘once’ for personal reasons. If a second reschedule is required, you must pay the booking fee again. If it rains on the day of your session, we will either reschedule to the next available date or have the session in studio.

WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO?

Our studio is located in the Southwest Charlotte area known as Steele Creek, near McDowell Nature Preserve and Park. We are just about a mile from both Tega Cay and Lake Wylie SC.
