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.
Whether in my Randolph NJ portrait studio or at a beautiful outdoor setting, my goal is to create timeless maternity photos that you will treasure long after the baby has arrived. Contact me to start planning your dream session today.
Your maternity photo session can take place in my Randolph NJ portrait studio or at an outdoor location. Its entirely up to you! Studio sessions are great any time of year, whereas outdoor sessions are best during Spring and Fall. Studio sessions also give you an opportunity to see the studio and all the props before you come back for your newborn session. We will discuss the options during your pre-session planning to find the perfect setting that you will love.
I recommend to reserve your maternity photo session as early into your pregnancy as possible. If you are also booking newborn pictures, you'll want to inquire for both sessions at the same time. This will allow us plenty of time for the custom planning of each session. The actual portrait session can take place anytime from about the 25th week of pregnancy until about the 30th week, depending on how the mom-to-be is feeling. 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.
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. I'm here to help make sure you look and feel amazing in your photos!
I do offer a bundle discount for booking your maternity and newborn sessions together. Contact me for details!
Absolutely! Your maternity photo session is essentially a family session. This is a great time to get acquainted with mom, dad, and siblings before we all meet again for the newborn session.
Booking a session with me is simple. Your Session Fee is due at signing to secure your date and covers all the of the time and talent you would expect from a full service studio. After your portrait session we will have an ordering appointment to view and choose the images from your session. Art and files are sold separately; see the pricing page for investment options.
