Maternity Sessions

Pregnancy is such a short-lived and intimate time in life. Whether you're near the end of your term and in need of a last-minute shoot or looking to plan eight months down the road, I'd love to help you immortalize this special time.

Depending on your comfort and mobility, we can find incredible locations to shoot with easy access, moderate treks, or even right in your home.

Below, I've included a portion of a handful of different maternity sessions.
I look forward to shooting with you.

Book your maternity session with us:

All lifestyle sessions include recommendations on both planning and posing. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and your experience seamless, so please,

don't hesitate to ask questions. We prefer natural light where possible, and dynamic lighting is available both in and outdoors. We often set our sessions outdoors, at your home or on-site, but studio options are available as well.

Alright, Mom, let's create some magic.
