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 offer 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 day is finally here! Time for you to relax and let me capture your beautiful bump!

My professional hair and makeup artist will come over and help glam you. She'll arrive about 3.5 hours before our scheduled session.

Then, I'll meet you and your family and all you have to do is smile and have fun!



06.

session day

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.

Don't worry about being photogenic!  It is my job to capture your beauty and love.  I am a pro at camera angles and posing so all you have to do is laugh and enjoy yourself!


07.

posing

Following the session we will schedule an image reveal and ordering appointment that will showcase the very best portraits from the session in a custom slideshow. You will enjoy a proofing process and I'll guide you through the portrait collections.

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 and flowy, chiffon fabric. 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 the couture designer, Katharina Hakaj, to the closet!!!

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

Lanh shot our maternity shoot in Orlando 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.

the hernandez's

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.

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

The Tan's

I spent countless hours online searching and typing numerous hashtags for photographers in Orlando area. I am so happy to have found Lanh! I love the fact that she uses natural light and her photos are not overly edited. Above all, she is the sweetest! She even got a smile out of my son! We had lots of compliments for our photos.

the flores'

Lanh is such a wonderful photographer and we love her style, we are so happy she was recommended by a friend! She has helped capture our family twice now, and we plan on continuing to incorporate her photography into our lives as we grow as a family.

Lanh is always on time and professional! We continue to support her year after year. She is great with our kids and keeps everyone smiling. A great person and photographer. Looking forward to the next shoot. 

The Harpers

Lanh has been one of my favorite photographers to date. She went above and beyond, taking time, and capturing beautiful memories for our family. We love our pictures and will treasure them forever. I hope we have another session soon!

the flores'

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!

Pauline & Evan

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. 

The Limpers

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!!
