“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human
spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.”
– Harriette Hartigan

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Waiting to meet your baby and honoring the incredible power of your body to grow and nourish new life is a sacred time worth remembering. Maybe your pregnancy happened quickly or unexpectedly or maybe your journey was a winding road starting years before, but whatever your story is, I would be honored to document the love, beauty, awe and anticipation during this special season of life.
My maternity photography style is creative, classic and timeless. I strive to use the environment to naturally emphasize the beautiful belly that is unique to pregnancy. Maternity sessions can take place on-location, either in your home or an outdoor space we choose together.
Maternity photo sessions are best captured between 32 and 36 weeks of pregnancy, but if your schedule does not allow for that I would be happy to work with you on timing. Maternity sessions last about 45 minutes depending on the location and how much walking is involved. Fur babies are always welcome at sessions too. Documenting siblings as they wait to meet their little brother or sister is something I cherish as well. For family maternity sessions with siblings, please refer to Family Sessions on the pricing page.
What to Wear
You should feel beautiful in whatever you choose to wear. The possibilities are endless. A fitted maxi dress or a flowy bohemian style both show off your belly beautifully. Or maybe you are a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Be true to yourself and don’t overthink it. Outfit changes are encouraged if desired. I also provide a small selection of flowing maternity gowns as an optional wardrobe change during your session. The gowns help to add movement to the photos and emphasize the beautiful pregnant belly in a sophisticated and unique way.
