Pregnancy is a miracle, a fleeting moment in time. It is a time when women radiate an amazing glow that hints at the new life within. You only go through this journey with this child one time. It can never be recreated.
It is an honor for me to document your growing belly and the amazingly gorgeous pregnant form. No matter how many maternity sessions I do, I continue to be in awe of the truly beautiful things a woman's body can do!
I have been photographing pregnancy for 16 years. I started my business doing only black and white maternity portraits on film (that’s all there was back then!). I have a great deal of experience in posing and lighting to make every woman look their best. You don’t need to worry about being photogenic or knowing what to do - I will take care of that part!
THE NEXT STEP
I like to photograph maternity sessions sometime between 30-37 weeks. Every pregnancy is different. Some women have nice round bellies at 30 weeks and others just aren’t showing enough. I have even photographed women at 38 or 39 weeks who were glorious at that stage. We want you to be nice and round, without being swollen and uncomfortable.
When is the best time to do maternity portraits?
Once your date is officially reserved, we can set up a time for a phone consultation to go over all of the session details like outfit selections and what your vision is for your session. Your homework will be to create a Pinterest board with some ideas.
Date secured! And now the fun begins!
This is where the magic happens! We will pamper you with professional hair and make up and then I will guide you through the whole session. I will help you with all of the posing to create stunning images.
Your session day!
After your session we will choose a date and time to return to the studio for your Image Reveal and Ordering appointment. Where we will view all of our images and make product selections on how best to display and preserve your images.
The Image Reveal
I knew that I wanted to do professional maternity pictures, but I am just in awe of these. I will treasure them forever!
I can't even explain how beautiful my pictures are and how womanly the whole experience made me feel.
