Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks to ensure that we don’t schedule too close to your due date, but that you are far enough along to have an amazingly full belly to show off! Be sure to contact me by the end of your second trimester to secure availability on my calendar. My Maternity + Newborn Package is wonderful if you love discounts and already know that you want a Newborn Session from me. Book together to save $75 off your Maternity Session!
Your Session can take place either in the comfort and privacy of your own home, or on-location depending on the vision you prefer. Many clients choose an in-home experience if they prefer a more intimate session with the ability to do a bit more showing off of the belly. A solid white tank top with simple underwear, airy lingerie, femininely form-fitting dresses, or layered pieces all look fantastic in your home environment.
If you prefer an on-location Session, we will work together to determine the best location based on the vision you had in mind. We can do anything from an open grassy field, to textured and urban, to layered and woodsy – whatever you like!
that some mamas are hesitant about having maternity photos taken because they aren’t sure how they will look in them. Your body is going through a transformation, and you may not feel like your usual self.
However, it is an absolute fact that carrying a child is one of the most beautiful things in the world, and that oh-so-limited timeframe should be documented before it’s gone forever. I promise to pose and direct you in a way that will accentuate your own beauty surrounding the joy of that growing baby, and fully illustrate just how glowing and radiant you are. Just smile, mama – you got this!
To book, simply contact me either via email, phone, or my website!
A $200 non-refundable down payment is required to hold your spot, which will be applied towards the Session balance. A signed Contract & Client Information Form will also need to be filled out at the time of booking before a date is scheduled into my calendar.
I suggest reviewing my portfolio or blog to see if anything inspires you, and even have a handy-dandy Pinterest board filled with outfit inspiration for both types of Sessions. I am willing to help you plan as much or as little as you need: from hair, to makeup, to wardrobe – I’m your gal.
Maternity Sessions usually last 1-1½ hours and are meant to be fun! You are welcome to include spouses/partners/children within your Session, or have it simply revolve around just you for once.
Nothing is ever stiff or formal with me, so expect that we will get a little chatty, and pretty soon, any potential nerves will melt away. We laugh. We talk. I’ll probably fix your hair at least 27.4 times and ask you to humor me for “just one more idea.” I’m telling you – it’s fun stuff.
About 3 weeks after our Session, you will get a pretty little email in your inbox that contains a link to your password-protected online gallery so you can view your images. From the gallery you can place a print order from my professional lab (personally fulfilled by yours truly to ensure there aren’t any issues), as well as share it with family and friends to gush over your adorable baby bump.
Your flash drive will arrive in the mail about a week after receiving your online gallery. Should you wish to use those digital files to print images on your own, I recommend using MPix.
