QOTD  from Rexella: "I'm doing my first maternity session next weekend. Any tips on how to prepare? What about info to send my client to prepare her & her husband beforehand? By the way, this will be outside on-location using natural light only."

MeKos:  I ♥ outdoor using natural light!!! I also love the natural poses. I always ask the clients if there are any for sure poses they want & kind get out of them what they are looking for then add a few of your own ideas & remember HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!

Morgan: Where a solid tight shirt...accessorize....coordinate colors. My favorite poses are mom laying down. Her head in dads lap looking to the camera. And her by herself just lying there :)

Cate: Pinterest.... type in maternity and go hog wild. Get some pose ideas, and heck, print them out and take em with you. I did that the first time to talk through what made her comfy, what she did/didnt like and it went great. It makes you more confident for sure!

Tania: Rexella I know whatever you do it will be fabulous but my best advice is to get to your location early and spend time charting out the flow of the session, where you want to shoot and where lighting will be best. That way it's mapped out and there are no awkward pauses. :)

Rexella: Thanks girls! Of course, I've already pinned a million things... just wanted to make sure there wasn't any extra secrets! lol Definitely planning on getting there early. Thanks Tania!
