When a baby is born, the mother & father are also born
My favorite Maternity images to create are the ones that make you smile from the inside out. I believe that every woman is a strong, beautiful, moving work of art to be appreciated. Every session is lead with this belief and as a photographer, woman, and mother, I want you to have the most stunning images of yourself that you have ever seen.
Sessions are a celebration of life, love, and creativity–where you don't worry about your arms or belly, or even about posing. Let all that go and just come and have fun, be pampered, and be you! After my makeup artist, Anabelle, brings your best face forward, you will be thoughtfully guided into elegant & fun poses. It's really my favorite part because I know first hand how intimidating a shoot can be AND how empowering it is to own truly beautiful images of yourself.
Maternity sessions are best captured between 30-36 weeks when your belly is nice and round, and right before you get too uncomfortable. Every woman is different, especially those having twins, so we discuss it before hand and pick a time that is perfect for you.
All maternity sessions are tailored specifically to you, and include a design consultation session. We discuss what your dream images will look like, what you'll wear, and what your loved ones should wear too. Even if it is your first professional photography session,My goal is to ensure you feel comfortable, beautiful and confident. Throughout your shoot, I will guide you through posing and wardrobe to ensure the session is fun, relaxed, and leaves your feeling empowered.
I have a gorgeous selection of maternity gowns, form-fitting dresses, lace robes, and beautiful fabrics for your session.
Professional makeup artistry is recommended for stunning portraits and can be included into your session for an additional fee. The artist will be available throughout your shoot for touch-ups and wardrobe changes.
Professional photo retouching is always included in your session and is edited in-house only to ensure total privacy. I specialize in artistic editing that focuses on creating a natural look. If you want a little extra, we will edit your photos to your liking.
