Maternity Sessions-Miette Photography- Jayme Okerblom

Ladies, let’s talk hair! Prepping for a session, or anything of importance, we all have our checklist of things to go through. Outfit, makeup and hair are our usual top three.  Especially with a maternity session, I get a ton of questions about how clients should style their hair.

Maternity Sessions-Miette Photography- Jayme OkerblomYour look is really determined by the overall vibe you’d like to have in your session, but I do have one major tip I always recommend for maternity sessions: versatility

During a maternity session, we will go between settings, play around and have several outfit changes. That is why I will always recommend doing your hair in a way that can start down, then easily be taken up and still look good for a whole different look.

During a Maternity Session where we want to do some sexier or even semi-nude shots, I will always start with the more put-together and clean-cut looks – typically straight or wavy hair down and neat. This pairs well with the shots with the husband/partner.

Then we can move to more revealing shots, and that is when we would get that fun, tousled look that also lends a more casual air.

You can even do a flower crown or headpiece that you can take on and off during your session.
