You want exceptional images that capture this wonderful, overwhelming, fleeting stage of your life. 

We offer a high-end service for our clients, including a photoshoot design consultation to plan the session, discuss style, hair and make-up, and the different background options. We are always available to our clients to share additional recommendations and information, so that they feel well prepared and taken care of. For details on pricing, please contact us. We include professional retouching of each image and complete digital archive with full print permission, a minimum of 15 digital files (with a mix of color and black and white), and the corresponding high-quality matted prints. In addition, most of our clients add on exquisite artwork we design and source especially for them (such as exclusive photo albums, and custom wall galleries).

Frequently asked questions

How far along should I be for the maternity photo session?

— Typically, for a lovely baby bump to show off, we recommend to come in the studio between 29 to 35 weeks, as you will still feel comfortable and not too tired. This said, Ameline Studio always listens to your preferences, and believes that the ideal time is of course the one you decide.

Can my partner and other children be included in the photo shoot?

— Oui! We will discuss all the important details together, and will make sure to address expectations prior to the shoot. 

How long does a pregnancy session last?

— A pregnancy shoot generally lasts about one hour, but this can vary depending, for example, on the number of children you already have and how old they are if they want to participate in the session. We set a quiet pace and try to remain within two hours.
