If you’re not sure whether you want a studio maternity session or an outdoors session, here are my top reasons to choose a studio maternity session


In Northern Virginia, gnats are present almost year-round, with the exception of very cold weather in winter.

A studio session will keep you bug-free, which is great, especially considering gnats really like to be in/near your eyes! No bugs is a top reason to choose a studio maternity session.

2) Flexible Time of Day for Your Session

Studio sessions can be done at virtually any time of day! Whereas outdoor sessions usually are best at sunrise or sunset – which can be as early or late as 5am or 9pm!

And indoor session isn’t dependent on the sun since we use natural-looking flash.

3) No Rescheduling Because of Weather

Raining? Too hot? Doesn’t matter in a climate-controlled studio!

You’ll be comfortable year-round with an indoors maternity session. Not having to worry about weather is a top reason to choose a studio maternity session.

4) Easy Access to a Bathroom

Let’s face it – sometimes pregnant people need to use a bathroom! Or maybe you want to touch-up your makeup in between shots, or fix your hair, etc.

At a studio maternity session, the bathroom is only ten feet away.

5) More Control of The Background

While some locations look great most of the year, a studio background looks great ALL year!

Plus we have the ability to choose your background theme and colors – a trickier task outside.
