Those brief months in a woman's life when she is carrying a baby is one of the most special things she will ever experience. Her body is performing miracles daily without her even thinking about it. Her figure changes, sometimes overnight, and each day the mother and child bond grows stronger. Nine months may seem like a long time, but they quickly fade away once the baby is born. Capturing that very special and emotional time is something that will be cherished forever.
Maternity photography is a unique type of portraiture because the photographer is capturing both mother and baby in a way that only happens during pregnancy. For some the idea of maternity pictures is exciting and they have been planning on what they want to wear for months, while others feel that they don't look like themselves and they are not sure if they want their "new look" to be recorded in pictures. But expectant mothers have a special glow and vibrancy that translates so well in photos. Using a photographer that knows how to make a pregnant woman look her best is vital to having pictures you will be proud to display in your home for years to come.
A maternity session with me is its own special experience. As a mom-to-be, you get to wear your own personal maternity clothing, or if you'd like, I have beautiful gowns that you can wear. Sessions can be in my studio, outdoors, or both, and depending on what size session you choose, can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. Spouses and siblings are always invited to participate in maternity sessions. Please contact me here if you have questions or if you’d like to book a session.
