Frequently asked questions

Where do we shoot?

That depends on your preference for outdoor or studio Maternity Portraits! 
We can either shoot in our Biltmore Village Studio OR we can shoot outdoors, in and around Asheville, along the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Biltmore Estate, the NC Arboretum or UNCA Botanical Gardens & Observatory or we can find another magical little spot to make your maternity dreams come true! 

Frequently asked questions

What do I wear?
.
That also depends on your preferences for this session!
I've had couples who want a more casual, lifestyle or boho vibe. 
I've also had couples who want to dress in black tie for a couture studio session!
The Creative Fee covers a Couture Maternity Gown Rental for you and we have a Client Closet at the studio that you could pick something from as well! 

Frequently asked questions

What about hair & makeup?

We schedule trusted artists for in house hair & makeup service at the studio to glam you up before your Maternity Portrait Session!
This typically happens approximately two hours before your scheduled portrait session time. 

Frequently asked questions

What should my partner wear?

Mama! You're the star of this show! Your partner will be in a supporting role & will want to dress in a way that is complimentary to the theme, wardrobe and/or gown you've chosen for the session! They'll want to dress in a way that feels authentic, in a way that makes them feel comfortable and confident — like the very best version of themselves! I am happy to help you to put together wardrobe for the session!

Frequently asked questions

What do we need to bring?

Nothing really!
But, I do love it when expectant parents bring Sonograms. IVF needle collections or any other sentimental things from their pregnancy journey! 

Frequently asked questions

Where is the studio located?

In Biltmore Village, along the river! 

76 Glendale Ave. 
Suit 204
