What if I don't want my session blogged or posted on social media? 
I completely respect your right to privacy. If you would prefer to not have your images posted on social media or on the Quanessa Nicole Photography & Design blog, I will refrain from doing so. Do note that your images will be uploaded to an online gallery, but this is password protected and nobody else can access your images except for you.

Can I share my online gallery with other people?
Absolutely! Sometimes it's nice to have others look through your images to help you decide which pictures to print. They'll just need your username and password to access the gallery.

Can I order my prints and products at your studio?
Sure thing! I am happy to provide custom ordering sessions at the studio. This is a complimentary service that's typically scheduled a month after your photo shoot. Alternatively, you can order all your prints and products online in your own home.

You pay for your prints and products at the time of order. 

What happens if I don't like a print or product?

Photography Session Tips & Inspirations

Maternity Photography

“What should I wear or bring for my maternity experience?”


Avoid wearing anything too tight or restrictive to avoid creating dents or marks on your skin for a couple of hours prior to your experience.


Here are a few ideas for clothing and props. The following items are only suggestions, so please feel free to bring along any new ideas as well. It is better to bring along too much and not use something, than to be at the studio and wish you had packed a specific item.
  • Panel-free pants or jeans. Black
  • A fitted non-maternity top. The goal is to have something that hugs your shoulders and breast, but is a little bit too short to actually cover your belly.
  • Your pre-pregnancy jeans unbuttoned and unzipped. If you can fit into your pre-pregnancy jeans at all while pregnant, they will most likely have to be totally unzipped, so a word of caution prior to your shoot is to do a “bikini check” to see if there are any stray hairs visible.
  • Flesh toned bra and panties to use with sheer fabrics.
  • For larger busted women: a strapless bra, or equivalent (bra that we can tuck the straps into cups) to give you support while shooting with fabric wraps.
  • A smooth bra and panties without bows of lace details. These items can be useful for silhouetted images (where the background is very bright, but the subject is a dark outline). A silhouette does not provide any detail or definition, just shape. Many women choose to do a nude silhouette to truly showcase their beautiful shape without revealing any detail (it’s kind of like being a naked shadow).
  • Lacy or sheer robe.
  • A long pretty silk scarf that can be draped over your breast and behind your back.
  • A button down shirt (your own or one of your husband’s shirts). You can button on the top part over your breast and leave the bottom part unbuttoned over your belly.
  • Black. If you are self conscious about excess weight and would like to do a shadowy pose where it is difficult to tell where your body ends and the shadows begin, definitely bring black clothing. This can include black panel-free pants, a black tank top, a black button-down shirt, etc.
  • Sports bra or tank top (we can clip the tank top up in the back to expose your belly).
  • Special sentimental jewelry (example: a necklace or earrings from your husband).
  • A hair clip. If you have long hair, you might do some poses with your hair down and some with it piled loosely on your head.
  • Baby booties or stuffed toys you have purchased for the baby or from your baby shower.
  • Groom your nails which the hands will be part of the photo session. Natural looking nails, pale colors, or a French manicure.
  • Plan to bring another adult (grandparents, friend) who could take the kids somewhere for the remainder of the session, you will be much more relaxed if you do not have to worry about keeping an eye on your children while you are posing. Keep this in mind, relax and enjoy your photo session, the feeling will come through in the final images.

PLEASE NOTE

Your experience should be a FUN experience and I don’t want to push YOU outside of YOUR personal comfort zone.
