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 and give you an opportunity to see the studio and all the props before you come back for your newborn session. Outdoor maternity photos are especially beautiful in the Spring or Fall. 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 interested in newborn pictures, we'll book 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 35th 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.
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. I'm here to help make sure you look and feel amazing in your photos!
Depending on your goals for your maternity photos, we can do your session at my portrait studio located in Randolph, NJ. We are easy to find on Google Maps. Or if you prefer outdoors we can review a list of locations as we go through the planning process. Outdoors may not be available depending on the season.
There is a $250 retainer fee due at booking to hold your date and cover the time and talent of the studio. This covers the planning and design of your session as well as the actual session itself. It also includes a virtual ordering appointment to view and choose the images after your session. Images are sold separately.
You decide how many images to bundle into your package; the more you order, the more you save! Start with 8 or more favorite images and choose from matted prints or upgrade to a handcrafted hardcover album. Most families choose one of our artwork products after seeing the beautiful selection of professional prints, albums, wall art, and other photo gift items.
I do offer a bundle discount for booking your maternity and newborn sessions together. Contact me for details!
Absolutely! Every image that you order will come with the edited, high resolution digital file and print release. Images are delivered via a private online gallery download.
Booking a session with me is simple. The retainer fee is due at signing to secure a date and covers the studio's time and talent toward creating your portrait experience. After booking you'll receive our welcome guide and we'll talk about your styling preferences to plan out your perfect session. After the shoot you'll get to view and choose your images and build a package that suits your family the best. Art and files are sold separately.
