Haili Barton Photography is the leading Austin, Texas Luxury Studio Maternity Portrait Studio. Haili offers her clients a full service maternity photoshoot experience.
Marina, my client, found my on my Instagram, which can be found here! She reached out to me when she saw that I posted my updated availability because she didn’t want to miss out on booking with me. We were so excited to work together for her maternity photoshoot!
Knowing that she was pregnant with twins and that preterm labor does sometimes happen in pregnancy, especially pregnancies with multiples, we made sure to get her in on the earlier end of my timeline. I typically shoot maternity portraits between 30-34 weeks in term, which is before you’re uncomfortable but when your cute round belly has come in!
The day quickly approached! Before we knew it she was 30 weeks and we were shooting her maternity photos. Once she got to the studio, she sat down and got her hair and makeup done by my hair and makeup artist, Ciara. Ciara works magicccccc on my clients! See a before and after below from Marina’s maternity photoshoot.
I have my clients fill out a studio maternity portrait questionnaire prior to their maternity photos. This helps to give me an idea on what images from my portfolio are your favorite. Do you love black and white? Are you super into my moody images on dark backdrops? Do you DIE when you see my painterly style images? These are all things that you let me know on your questionnaire! Your maternity photos are 100% catered to you.
Sometimes my clients come in and they’re like, “I’m your muse. Do whatever!” and that’s totally fine, too! I LOVE when my clients let me create something new and amazing for their photos. After all, my creativity and uniqueness is what most of my clients book me for. LOL.
At Marina’s photoshoot we talked about her and Gina’s journey to motherhood. Marina and Gina are my first same sex couple and I was like “YESSSSS. FINALLY!” Hearing about how they selected the babies sperm donor, or as we called it, “baby daddy” hahaha, was super cool and eye opening. Technology is so amazing, and so was this couple!
Marina and Gina scheduled me for my Baby’s First Year, which is Maternity, Newborn, and a sis month or one year milestone
At their reveal appointment, Marina and Gina decided to go with a folio box with matted prints! Here is a video of their goodies:
