from nine months to a lifetime of love
Congratulations! You are expecting a little bundle of joy. Whether you are welcoming your first baby or your last, this is a remarkable time in your life. I love photographing expectant moms, and I urge you to celebrate this fleeting moment in your life with custom professional portraits. You will never look - and never be - the same ever again. Classic maternity photography makes the perfect keepsake for any expecting mom. My goal is to create timeless maternity photos that you will treasure long after the baby has arrived.
Contemporary and Glamorous
Studio maternity sessions are fun and modern! We can achieve different looks with various backdrops, lighting techniques and outfit changes. With your very own private portrait session in my studio, you can be photographed showing off as much of that baby bump as you wish. Studio sessions are great any time of year and best of all, give you an opportunity to see the studio and all the props before you come back for your newborn session.
I recommend to reserve your maternity photo session as early into your pregnancy as possible. The actual portrait session can take place anytime from about the 25th week of pregnancy until about the 35th week, depending on how the mom-to-be is feeling and showing. Mamas pregnant with their second or later child will start to show sooner. This also applies to moms expecting multiples! Everyone will be slightly different. I do recommend getting the photos taken as early as possible in order to safely capture the pregnancy and enjoy the images before the baby arrives.
Maternity portraits are only offered when booked with a Newborn session. After paying the retainer fee to secure your due date, we'll begin the planning process for both sessions! First we'll have a design consultation so that I can learn more about how you want to be photographed and assist with styling for the maternity shoot. After baby arrives, you'll come back for the newborn portrait session! After each shoot you’ll receive a proofing gallery to view all of the images from that session. Simply choose your favorites along with the products you love most; art and files are sold separately and your total investment will depend on your final selections. Artwork options range from professional prints to handmade albums and custom wall art. Every image that you select also comes with the edited high resolution digital file with printing rights. The whole process is easy and I walk you through every step of the way.

Your Questions, Answered
We recommend photographing your baby bump anytime between 25-35 weeks of pregnancy. I know this is a big range, but it really varies from person to person on how they are feeling and showing. It can also be different with each pregnancy! You can contact us to hold your due date anytime after the first trimester, and we can set the actual date as you progress in your pregnancy and plan it out later.
Your dress or outfit is definitely an important consideration when planning your maternity photo session! Most mamas will opt for a long dress that is comfortable and shows off your baby bump beautifully. I will offer some guidance during our pre-session planning.
