Once you reserve BeLoved, we’ll be in touch by the next business day to go over details & schedule your session. Our photographer will also reach out and discuss details prior to your session. If we’re playing the waiting game on baby’s big arrival, you and your photographer will make a plan for when baby makes his or her debut!
We do photo sessions 7 days a week. Weekends are the most popular, so if you’ve got your heart set on a specific day, we recommend booking well in advance.
Of course! Additional time is added in 30 minute increments at $65 per half hour. Multiple locations are welcome as long as time allows and are walkable (we would recommend if you think you are going to want to utilize several locations to add an additional hour to your session at booking).
BeLoved does not charge sitting fees, so you can have the whole family in your photo sessions. We do recommend adding on additional time if you are adding additional people (beyond the parents and baby) to a newborn session.
Late afternoon is the ideal time to capture the most daylight without glare.
All of our photographers are selected based on location and availability. All BeLoved shoots are backed by our Happiness Guarantee.
We promise to deliver beautiful images with every photography session, but we know that the goal of every maternity and baby session is to capture that one perfect image. We will digitally enhance, refine and beautify to create that perfect wall-worthy shot. And if necessary, we will schedule one additional photo session free of charge. We guarantee it!
Sure! You and your photographer will be in the driver’s seats as far as scheduling, so as long as you are both free, we’re happy to ensure that you are able to work together each time.
Absolutely! We vet and background check every photographer we work with.
What’s that saying, “Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans”? We totally get that, and are happy to work with you and reschedule as needed.
We’ll post your images within 1 week of your shoot and send you a link for digital downloads of all of your photos. Easy-peasy :)
You’ll receive: 1 hour with your photographer Every image retouched (unlimited additional revisions upon request) Every image as a high-resolution, non-watermarked file Full rights to reprint
We don’t currently offer prints, but since you have full rights to reprint your images, you can take your photos anywhere to be printed, turned into baby announcements, or blown up onto a canvas!
Each mama-to-be is different, but we generally recommend somewhere between your 20-35 week mark. We want to make sure you’ve ‘popped’, since a maternity session is all about that bump!
Anywhere you like! We’ve done sessions at home, in parks, downtown, and at the beach. Just make sure that whatever location you’ve got your heart set on does not have any photography restrictions or fees for a photoshoot.
Whatever makes you feel beautiful! Just remember that your maternity session is all about your beautiful bump, so pick something that shows off the little life you’re creating. We love flowy dresses and solids or simple patterns for dynamic photography.
Nope! Some mamas opt to bring a pair of shoes, balloons, a baby book, or something of sentimental value to add some props into the session, but that is entirely optional. The most important thing is the love you have for your little one!
Absolutely not! You’ve just had a baby, the last thing you need to do is clean for us. All we need is a little space with good lighting and we’ll work our magic!
The best thing you can do for a smooth session is to make baby as comfortable as possible. For example: make sure your house is a bit warmer than usual to soothe baby, try to do a feeding before the session begins, and a fresh clean diaper never hurt anyone!
Our photographer will bring a beautifully curated set of sanitized props for your baby session, including multiple neutral-colored wraps, a fur blanket, hat/headbands, and basket with propping pillows. You’re welcome to choose what you would like us to use and what you’d prefer not to. Additionally, we love using things that are special to your family! If you’ve got grandpa’s baseball mitt, or mom’s baby blanket, we’d be thrilled to incorporate those into a few shots.
We’ve consulted with an Infectious Disease Pediatrician and implement their recommended best practices for cleaning and sanitizing our props before and after EVERY use.
We recommend booking us around your 20 week mark. Once you reserve BeLoved, you are guaranteed to have one of our fabulous photographers on stand by around your due date. Simply call us once baby is here!
We recommend 5-14 days after birth.
Double the adorable! We love photographing twins and triplets, but we do recommend making a few adjustments. We recommend adding on at least another half an hour of time, and since most twins spend a little extra time in the hospital, we usually wait longer before doing the session.
Anything you like! Our props are all relatively neutral, so you can choose to coordinate, or dress baby in something contrasting like a bright color.
Whether you want a family, baby or maternity shoot you can rely on our top tier professional photographers to capture it. We'll do a session anywhere, in high-resolution with free photo enhancement. Get 20% off all additional sessions.Buy Now
