MATERNITY 

SESSION GUIDE

I offer maternity photography in Orlando FL.  I am one of the top maternity photographers in Orlando FL and look forward to capturing your story. 

I'M 

I'M YOUR ORLANDO MATERNITY photographer.  I provide a complete, full service maternity photoshoot  experience.  I offer on-site hair and make up, a client closet full of high end dresses for you to choose from, and premium wall art and products to preserve your photos. 


LANH BALAGTAS

I'm so excited to discuss your maternity session and capture your pregnancy! I'd be so honored to help capture memories that your baby will look back on. Memories that will hang on your walls forever. Memories that will be passed on to your grandkids.


the process

Specializing in maternity photography in orlando fl. Your trusted orlando maternity photographer fl.

For maternity sessions, the best time to have your photos taken is between 28-32 weeks.  I recommend this because your bump will be perfectly round yet your feet won't be swollen.

For some mamas, they show faster and so the 28 week might be best. While others, like first time mamas, won't show fully until closer to 32 weeks.

The majority of the time, my couples are not professional models, so being in front of a camera can feel weird. This is why I help coach you with posing that is natural and flattering.

Your Maternity photos in orlando fl can be in winter park, kissimmee, winter garden, oviedo, clermont, and windermere.

One of the top orlando maternity photographers to help capture your bump 

One of the most stressful aspects of preparing for a maternity photo shoot is choosing an outfit to wear.  Prior to starting the Client Closet, this was my clients' number one concern.

Clients often bought from companies like Amazon and were disappointed in the quality and look of the dresses.  A lot of times, they ordered multiple dresses without satisfaction.

This is why I decided to invest in high-end, custom gowns that you can choose from for your session.  


These gowns are flattering AND comfortable! They are made of thick, lux jersey,  flowy, chiffon fabric and premium tulle. Made by women designers who know how to fit the pregnant body, they complement your body while smoothing your curves.

The gowns in the Client Closet feature designers like Sew Trendy Accessories, Reclamation Design Company, and Silk Fairies.  I am SO excited to announce that we have added 8 gowns from couture designer, Katharina Hakaj, to the closet!!!

I also have different fabrics for draping and a variety of bodysuits.

So, let this be one less thing for you to think about when planning your maternity photos in Orlando.  Know that you have high-end, flattering dresses to choose from at NO additional cost!

Behind All stories is always your



Because her's is where your's began

mother's story

I have never felt so beautiful. As a mom, it’s easy to put ourselves last. Easy to concentrate more on our families needs than our own. When Lanh mentioned doing a solo session, I was a bit hesitant . But I am so glad I did. I felt so pampered and so pretty.

Being pregnant isn’t always sunshine and roses. My body has changed so much and sometimes that’s hard to accept. When I look at the images Lanh created, I see myself differently. Although my body has changed, it is amazing and it is growing another beautiful daughter.

Thank you so much, Lanh, for allowing me to see the beauty in my pregnant body and for making me feel so gorgeous!

Thoa

Lanh is amazing! She truly thought of every detail and every picture I could have possibly wanted. Lanh was sure I got BEAUTIFUL (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) classic shots but also really fun and creative ones. She literally was standing in the middle of a bush when she captured my favorite photo from our wedding day!

I was a bride super self conscious about bad angles and double chins and I really appreciated Lanh's "chin up" reminders and her instincts to get really flattering shots. I love love love my wedding photos!!

gisele & John

Lanh was absolutely wonderful to work with! I was extremely hesitant on doing a maternity shoot and I had no idea how it would be. Lanh exceeded all of my expectations!

Not only did she successfully create the images I had in my head but she offered her own suggestions that turned out so beautiful. She is experienced and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable.

I recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! I had so much fun and I can't wait to shoot with her again.

Angelique

I don't think I've ever felt more beautiful!

These pictures made this entire pregnancy feel like what I always thought being pregnant should feel like. With the COVID virus we couldn't do anything. But I wouldn't trade these pictures for all the baby showers in the world. I think thanking you is such an understatement. You are so wonderful and made me feel so confident!

Katie

Lanh is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone!!! She photographed my elopement and every detail and shot was perfect! 

She is very detailed orientated and made sure we had all the shots we wanted, especially of those details that were important to me and my husband! Every photo was absolutely beautiful and she even wrote an amazing blog post about our special day that shared our story so beautifully.

I am looking forward to hiring Lanh again to capture more beautiful memories of my family in the future.

the Pinels

Incredibly talented and such a warm, welcoming and easy going person! I’ll start this review by saying she’s as close to a miracle worker as you can get. A few months ago when I contacted Lanh I had a vision in my head and it took only a couple of hours to finalize details and we were set.

The day of the shoot came and the weather ruined our plans but she still managed to get some really beautiful and absolutely stunning shots (Miracle) she worked through the rain, the humidity, mosquitoes, a very tired and hot momma, and my poor husband who has no idea how to pose and hates to smile for pictures. (Again, miracle.) We ended up with breathtaking photos. AND I got pictures of my husband smiling!

I’ve adored everything of working with her and I cannot stop telling everyone about her I’m so happy to have connected with her and I’m glad we now have a family photographer to capture our little family. Lanh, thank you so much for such a wonderful job and creating amazing memories for our son.

I appreciate Lanh and her work! The day I called to speak with her about a maternity photoshoot, she quickly helped us set a date and time.

When I arrived for the photoshoot, she had everything prepared. She even offered water and snacks! I was very impressed with her professionalism and kindness. She made the entire experience amazing. I was astonished that Lanh had such a wonderful wardrobe to borrow from for the photos! (Such a plus!!) She made us feel very comfortable!

Lanh was very responsive to all of the questions I had during the entire process. She is a dream to work with and is passionate about her artwork. Needless to mention, her photography speak for itself!

Lanh shot our maternity shoot today and honestly we have never had a better experience with a photographer. She was SO friendly and so professional. My husband and I were a bit nervous and honestly felt a little unprepared but Lanh took care of posing (to detail) and positioning for the perfect lighting-I mean she even had a STAND to get the perfect shot from above!

We were put at such ease and my husband was so impressed (he is very camera shy). Even straight from the camera the shots looked AMAZING.

I was apprehensive about taking maternity photos because of COVID restrictions but with a push from my mom, we set a photoshoot.  

Lanh's energy made me comfortable immediately! She had all the proper precautions so I felt safe. 

The time she took with dresses, location, and scenery was absolutely amazing. She made sure everything was picture perfect!

The dresses from the client closet were absolutely stunning and made me feel gorgeous. I'm so happy with this experience!

the Borst's

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us. 

The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.

The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.

MELANIE

I can't say enough amazing things about Lanh's work. She's top notch in every respect. A true professional from the moment you interact with her. 

From the very first time working with her as her HMUA, she left me speechless and continues to do so. She is fun, detail oriented, and always makes her clients feel right at home in the most cozy, clean, and airy environment. She makes sure every client has snacks to enjoy and an endless closet full of amazing wardrobe choices to choose from. 

In hiring Lanh, you will treasure the unforgettable moments with pictures to last a lifetime

The Marjason's

Had an amazingly easy photography session with Lanh! Having 3 young kids, it’s HARD to wrangle them all together to get a perfect shot but Lanh was so efficient and quick! She captured us as a family perfectly and each of my kids individually. I definitely recommend!

Aija & Family

So happy that I have found Lanh!!! She totally got my vision straight away and our family Christmas pictures turned out just perfect! It was so easy to work with her and my daughters had so much fun during this photoshoot.

the pepe's

I've always had trouble finding a photographer. Lanh made my husband and I comfortable. We felt natural, we didn't have any crazy poses where your arm looks dislocated, she knew exactly how to direct you without making you feel uneasy.
  
She will catch the perfect shot in the perfect lighting, and let me tell you, she KNOWS her lighting. 

She captured our family twice now, but I'm already planning for this year and I can not wait!! She is also stuck with me now, I'm not letting her go lol

Tracy & Lori

Lanh is an amazing photographer and an even more amazing person! She is professional, personable, and knows how to make you look good ;)

We did a maternity shoot with her and then a year later did our baby girl's first birthday photos. She was so patient with our daughter and captured the most perfect photos despite the fussiness!!

She also has very fast turnaround time and is always willing help! We HIGHLY recommend Lanh!

The Bui's

I love how Lanh uses natural light to capture beautiful photos! We have done 4 sessions with Lanh - our son’s first birthday needs, holiday photos & a family session. At our most recent session I was so impressed by how she was able to engage a 2 year old! She really continues to evolve & perfect her art. 

Pauline & Evan

Lanh is beyond talented! She definitely has the eye for all things aesthetics! She made my boyfriend and I so comfortable during our very first shoot with each other and with her. Let me add in it was in freezing weather and the shots exceeded expectations! Lanh will forever be our go to!! Love you Lanh!

We could not have made a better decision in choosing Lanh.

As an untraditional couple, we were hesitant that we wouldn’t find a photographer that would make us both feel comfortable and beautiful. We couldn’t be happier with Lanh!

From the first meeting, Lanh took great care to get to know us as a couple in order to authentically capture our love story. With every detail, Lanh demonstrated the upmost professionalism to ensure that it was a stress-free day.

We look back fondly on our wedding day with the gorgeous images that Lanh created.

So happy that I have found Lanh!!! She totally got my vision straight away and our family Christmas pictures turned out just perfect! It was so easy to work with her and my daughters had so much fun during this photoshoot.

Had an amazingly easy photography session with Lanh! Having 3 young kids, it’s HARD to wrangle them all together to get a perfect shot but Lanh was so efficient and quick! She captured us as a family perfectly and each of my kids individually. I definitely recommend!

I love how Lanh uses natural light to capture beautiful photos! We have done 4 sessions with Lanh - our son’s first birthday needs, holiday photos & family sessions. At our most recent session I was so impressed by how she was able to engage a 2 year old! She really continues to evolve & perfect her art.

Lanh is beyond talented! She definitely has the eye for all things aesthetics! She made my boyfriend and I so comfortable during our very first shoot with each other and with her. Let me add in it was in freezing weather and the shots exceeded expectations! Lanh will forever be our go to!! Love you Lanh!

questions

Maternity photographer in Orlando fl with high end gowns from sew trendy

question

Can I try on the dresses before the photo session?

answer

01

I believe that wearing a dress that fits you right is VERY important. 
  
We'll have a styling appointment 1-2 weeks prior to your session date to ensure we choose the right dress for your body.  We'll also discuss prepping your family.

All my packages offer a fitting session.



question

What if I want to wear my own dress?

answer

02

You're welcome to wear your own dress or choose from the client closet-- whatever your heart desires.  

There is also a "Buy Back" option (see below) 

The Client Closet is available at no additional cost to you.

question

Where do you buy the dresses from?

answer

03

The majority of the dresses are from Sew Trendy Accessories.  Others include Reclamation Design Co, Katharina Hakaj Couture, Silk Fairies, H&M, and Pink Blush Maternity.

question

Do you rent out your dresses?

answer

04

Unfortunately I do not.  The dresses in the Client Closet are a perk I offer you when you book a session with me.

question

Can my husband and other kids be in the photos?

answer

05

Absolutely!  Your loved ones are part of your story so I love to include them!

question

How often do you update your Client Closet?

answer

06

I am always looking for ways to improve my business and this includes adding dresses to the Client Closet!

I always share when I add to the closet.  Follow me on social media to find out when new dresses are added!

question

I noticed the range of sizes on the gowns. Is there a reason for that?

answer

07

Most of the gowns are made of lux jersey material which is very stretchy and can fit a wide range of sizes.  Even the chiffon dresses have room to stretch.

Also, some dresses can be pinned to fit.

As your Orlando maternity photographer, I offer a complete photography experience with services tailored to your vision and products that will stand the test of time. 

My work is my passion and I strive to make your photo session be as memorable and feel as effortless as possible.

I also place great importance on the finished product. I offer a hand picked selection of professional prints, wall art, and flat lay albums that you will be proud to display in your home and share with your friends.
