Christmas in NYC is one of the most iconic times of the year to visit and be apart of. Starting a family means it’s a good time for maternity photos. If you happen to be showing your baby bump around the holidays – it’s a wonderful time to plan your maternity photos!
When to book your NYC Christmas Maternity photos?
In order to receive your Christmas in NYC maternity photos back in time for Christmas cards and posting them to social media, you need to book your session within 6 weeks from the due date. Some clients book their Christmas in NYC session around the week before Thanksgiving. You can always upgrade your photo collection package by adding on the fast edit turnaround option. Pricing for upgrades in the FAQ page here.
Why choose an in-home photoshoot?
In the winter season of NYC, it can be quite uncomfortable to be outdoors for photo sessions- especially while pregnant. I love the idea of couples choosing to photograph in the comfort of their own home so their photos tell a story. Storytelling in-home photo sessions have much more meaning than an outdoor session in a beautiful scenic background. In 20 years from now, you can tell the chapter in your lives to your children about the home you lived in and how you used to decorate your home for the holidays.
This is also a perfect opportunity to include your fur babies like cats and dogs in your in-home maternity photos session.
What to wear for in-home maternity photos
I suggest you pick at least two different comfortable outfits for your in-home maternity photos. Something with the Christmas theme and another to snuggle in your favorite sweater set.
