At Three16 Photography, we want to help you capture the joy of your pregnancy. We all know that everyone loves baby pictures, but what about the time leading up to their birth? That special time when mother and child bond as one. That’s why we offer Maternity Photography to capture one of the more exciting times of your life. We have found over the years that maternity photography might just be the most intimate form of photography with the most beautiful moments caught on camera. The raw emotion of love is in full display and we love capturing those moments. And yes, dads are included.
Three16 Photography has been a top notch Orange County and Los Angeles Maternity Photographer since 2010. Capturing great and picturesque moments of your loved ones is a high priority for us. Therefore, why not take photos of your sweet newborn, before they are born, to share with family and friends? Especially the relatives who may not be able to stop by for a visit anytime soon or on a regular basis. Time flies. So, capture this special time now to cherish these memories forever.
In addition, there’s nothing better than a home filled with great photos of your family; it changes a house to a home. Prints of your photographs can also be put into photo albums or ask us about our Album Services, where we would take your photos and give them a professional look in a hard-bound book that you would be proud of. Makes great gifts too.
As Orange County photographers, we’re happy to shoot your photos in Orange County or Los Angeles, or even outside those two counties. With our Maternity Photography Services, you have the option of your maternity photoshoot in studio, your home or a destination of your choosing. Perhaps they can be taken at your favorite beach or a beautiful park, like Laguna Beach or Carbon Canyon Regional Park.
In addition to our Maternity Photography session, we also offer Family Photography, Newborn, Senior Portraits & Grad Photos, Engagement and Wedding Photography.
We invite you to visit Three16 Photography’s portfolio as it offers you a glimpse into what we can do for you to make all your photographic needs special. Feel free to view and then Contact Us for a free consultation.
Where to do Maternity Photos?
First of all, it depends on you as a person, as well as your wants and don't wants. Do you care if people are in the background or do you want to be more secluded? Are you looking for something traditional, such as a Nature Park or the Beach, or are you looking for something more unique like Mission San Juan Capistrano or Walt Disney Concert Hall, just to name a couple. Maternity locations are similar to Engagement locations. The biggest difference is the focus on the baby and not the ring. And of course, there is the personal touch of having the session at your home.
How much should I spend on Maternity Photos?
Typically, a good range for Maternity Photos is $550 to $850. There are factors that often determine the final price such as are you looking to go elegant or more low key? How many hours do you want the session? Will there be one location or multiple?
How many months or weeks pregnant should you be to take have a Maternity Photoshoot?
Typically, you should consider 7 or 8 months (28 to 38 weeks) for your session. If wait too much longer you run the risk of being much larger than you anticipated, which could leave you uncomfortable, as well as run the risk of an early delivery. Therefore, causing your session to be obsolete. And these photos are not only a keepsake or make your home beautiful, but they are also used as announcements to family, friends or on social media, and if that is the case you want the announcements to go out while you are still pregnant and not after the delivery.
Are professional Maternity Photos worth it?
Absolutely! Like mentioned above, it is a great way to share the news with loved ones near and far, as well as being used for decorations for your baby shower. They preserve those amazing memories in life as the child grows and life changes.
