It seems crazy to say that pregnancy is seasonal but it does appear to be that way. This time of year many of our clients are either pregnant or new parents. For parents-to-be Hartshorn Portraiture offers a package that is tremendous value and captures some precious moments along the way.
The Pregnancy/Newborn Package includes:
TWO — 2 hour sessions (One shoot is pregnancy and the second is baby)
TWO 8 x 10 standard prints (one from each shoot)
Complimentary Consultation Appointment prior to the session
Slideshow presentation of the images shown in our Hoboken studio
For ideas wardrobe ideas for your maternity session check out our “What to Wear” section.
What to wear for your session — we are often asked this question. While your body, not your ensemble, is the focus of the shoot, you’ll probably want to wear something!
Bring some wardrobe options, Instead look for a break between the boob and belly and more relaxed fit below the waist. Solids look best; they’re timeless, we recommend bringing soft clothes that won’t dig into your body anywhere and going bra-less before the shoot to eliminate lines that would have to be retouched.
We have a couple of pieces that work well including a robe and a shawl like sweater that creates nice texture.
I think that hot chocolate is a personal thing. Everyone has their favorite — I love Cadbury’s hot chocolate powder from the UK and ask relatives to bring me a stash when they visit. Here are some ways to serve a ‘customized’ hot chocolate.
Spiced Hot Chocolate on a Stick- “Fragrant cinnamon and clove add extra warmth to this recipe, and its single serving portions make for perfect party favors! Just be sure to package them in festive cellophane bags with instructions, so friends know to dissolve 1 hot chocolate stick in 6 oz. hot milk. I used biodegradable wooden spoons, but you could use lollipop sticks, wooden craft sticks, or even fancy dessert spoons.”
Lavender Hot Chocolate — I am definately going to try this though I might not make the hot chocolate from scratch!
Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate — This is actually quite a healthy option and easy to prepare.
