MATERNITY

Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body

Maternity portraits are a once in a lifetime opportunity for each baby. This is your chance to capture you and your family intimately interacting with your baby while still in the womb. And just imagine how happy your child will be as he/she grows and sees photos of you with him/her inside. Baby bumps are best photographed between 30-35 weeks when the belly is showing. I recommend you schedule a session during the second trimester to ensure availability. My studio closet has a large selection of dresses and wraps that you are ‘free to use’ for your session. If you'd like to also use one for your Baby Shower or Gender Reveal, be sure to ask about our rental program. (for booked clients only)

DO YOU HAVE MATERNITY OUTFITS?

We have a large collection of maternity dresses and fabric wraps. We’d love to photograph you in outfits you’re comfortable in as well, so feel free to bring your favorite maternity outfit as well.

CAN FAMILY MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN THE PHOTO SESSION?

Yes! We love nothing more than for spouses and children to participate in the shoot! Studies show that as your child grows and sees himself/herself in family photos, they feel more loved, connected, and experience a boost in self-esteem.
