  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

Yes! If you book a maternity shoot and a newborn shoot, the newborn shoot will be done at a 50% discount.
