So you have finally booked your pregnancy session! The days leading up to it can bring out different emotions ranging from nervousness to excitement and everything in between. These emotions can make you feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to prepare for your day in the studio. So we've put together a few helpful tips with the hope that we can help you turn those feelings from anxiousness to confidence in no time flat.
Get some rest!
First and foremost, getting some rest before your session is so important. This can be easier said than done, especially when you have children and other responsibilities in your home to take care of. But as your belly grows and as the little life inside you gets bigger, getting enough rest will not only help you feel your absolute best for your session day, but it can have a huge impact on your upcoming labor and delivery.

So how do you get good rest when everything is changing so rapidly within your body? 

Our basic tips are to start small. Limiting screen time before bed isn't just for kids. Choosing to steer clear of our phone screens, computers, and television in the hour or so leading up to bedtime will help your mind wind down for the night and better prepare it for deep sleep. From there we also suggest limiting caffeine before bed, drinking plenty of water, and incorporating a gentle stretching routine to relax and soothe all those stretching and aching muscles.  
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

We can't stress this enough! Drink plenty of water everyday, but especially on session day. Staying hydrated does a number of positive things for your body, but for the purpose of your session it will ensure your joints and muscles are properly lubricated, that you have plenty of energy, and overall it will just help you feel your best. 
Limit Stress!
At Find the Beauty Photography, we strive to take care of all the little details so you don't have to stress about gathering all of your outfits and getting yourself ready on your own. When you book a session with us we want you to know that all you have to do is show up with clean hair and a clean face. After that one of our in-studio artists will take over, pampering you with the full experience of providing you with makeup and hair. Our photographers will hand select your outfits for your session from a variety of gorgeous gowns and bodysuits within our client closet. While some clients still bring their own gowns, we want to make sure that you know that we've got you covered even if you don't. Afterall, this day is solely for you and you deserve to have the best stress-free experience we can provide.
But the most important thing to remember..
Just enjoy yourself! This moment in your life is so fleeting, and as your photographer it's our job to capture this moment so you can cherish it forever. Thank you for trusting us!
