What do you envision? The soft light of the beach with the wind in your hair? A floaty dress in a sunlit field? Or the dramatic lights of the studio? When you book the New Life Collection, you have the luxury of choosing to have your session outdoors or in the studio.
As naked as you want to be...no more, no less...
I shoot fully clothed maternity sessions, implied nudes, and tasteful full nudes. Most often it’s a combination of those. It’s your call. And yes, you will look beautiful. I understand how to pose a pregnant woman in the most flattering ways and how to light the pregnant form to show it’s full beauty.
Big brothers & sisters to be are welcome...Is this your second, third or fourth baby? Booking the New Life Collection also means that the new baby’s older siblings are also included along with Dad to be...standard maternity sessions include Dad to be/partner.
Between 26 - 34 weeks is the ideal time for your maternity session. You should book your session as soon as you know you want one to ensure you get the time frame you want, especially if you need a weekend. If you are expecting twins, your ideal time frame is closer to the 26 week mark than the 34 week mark.
Don’t know what to wear or bring? I have almost all the wraps, tops, & scarves you see here and I’m always adding on. You’ll find suggestions for what to wear and bring in my session guide that you’ll receive after booking and we'll go into thorough detail at your consultation.
A maternity session is more than a photoshoot - it’s a day of pampering for the mom-to-be. Get your hair done, makeup done & a mani-pedi because it’s a day of beauty for you. Professional hair & makeup services are available upon request for an additional fee. I highly recommend it! You can see the work of my preferred expert team here.
In studio or on location at a beach, park, or other location I will recommend. If you have your heart set on an outdoor session, this is the package to book. Outdoor sessions start 2 hrs before sunset for beautiful light.
What some of my clients have said about their maternity session experience
“... thanks for making the photo shoot a memorable experience and for making me feel comfortable!”
“Worth the wait :) I am not a photogenic person and generally hate pictures of me, but ... these make me feel and look beautiful. My husband was right to insist we get the maternity shots to capture the moment in time. Thank you. Cant wait to see how cute my little bear will look if you can make me look this good. ”
“I am typically an extremely camera shy person, and I expected to feel even more so while seven months pregnant! You really made me feel comfortable, and the whole experience was great!”
