Where are you located, Do you have a studio?
Yes, i have a studio in Hod hasharon and you are warmly invited but so you know, one of my benefits is that i can come over to you so you don’t need to worry about the hassle of driving, finding parking etc.
Plus, I get to photograph you in the beauty & comfort of your own home.
What about doing a maternity shoot at the beach, in a field, or in a forest?
Of course! I am happy to suggest suitable outdoor locations for shooting.
I can also arrange a combined photo shoot, where we will take photos both at home and outdoors.
What is the best week to do a maternity shoot?
I recommend photographing your bump between week 25 to week 38.
In my experience it is best to not wait until you feel overly heavy and tired.
When is the best time of day to book a shoot for?
I recommend starting around 11 am or noon, as we can take advantage of the amazing Israeli light.
How will I receive my photos?
You will receive full-size files sent straight to your email, ready to download, and you can print to any size you desire.
I do not add any stamps, watermarks, or logos to my photos.
It is also possible to receive a DVD or USB flash drive with all of the photos.
How soon will you send us the pictures?
You will receive highlights on the same day as the session and you will receive all the photos within 3 working days.
If I lose the photos, how can I get them?
I store your photos for 6 months from the date of the session. In addition to sending the photos via email, I also burn a disc and copy all the photos to a USB flash drive for added security.
Do you offer discounts for newborn photography?
Yes! If you book a maternity shoot and a newborn shoot, the newborn shoot will be done at a 50% discount.
What precautions are you taking in light of Corona (COVID - 19)?
I follow all the precautions, guidelines, and recommendations of the Ministry of Health, including maintaining distance and wearing a mask if needed.
We have other children and we want them to be included in the shoot. Is it possible?
Certainly and I highly recommend it! I am happy to work around your children’s nap and feeding schedule so that we can make sure to include siblings in this special time.
Should my partner join the maternity photos?
For sure! A pregnancy session is an amazing souvenir of your pregnancy and your journey together as a couple.
What about bringing our pet to the maternity session?
Obviously! Pets are part of the family and are always super photogenic so they can only add charm to the session.
What clothes are best for pregnancy photos?
The best outfit is the one that you are most comfortable in. This could be a pair of jeans, a nice dress or even just lingerie.
You can browse my site for inspiration, You are also welcome to borrow from the studio wardrobe.
I'm nervous about posing or knowing what to do with my hands. Can you help?
I will be there the whole time to demonstrate poses and to help & guide you.
And i will also make sure to pose you in a way that flatters your figure and accentuates your curves.
Can you hide stretch marks, pigmentation and scars in Photoshop?
Yes, I have no problem editing out anything you don’t want to show up.
Before the session we will talk about all of these little details.
What kind of makeup is the best for a maternity session?
I recommend you to apply makeup very gently to let your natural beauty shine through.
Will my photos appear on your site?
Only with your express permission, You have full rights to your photos.
What about birth photography in the delivery room?
Yes, I occasionally photograph births in delivery rooms and also in private homes. This can be arranged as part of my maternity photo package.
I'm also interested in newborn photography, Do you also offer newborn sessions?
I also have a newborn photography package, It generally takes about two hours and it is best done on the first two weeks and up to a month from the day the baby is born.
