Maternity Photography

Maternity photography is the art of capturing this exciting, profound, and precious moment of a woman and her family. This is my goal when it comes to pregnancy pictures. As a mother of 3 little ones, (and 2 big ones) I’m still surprised when I talk with a new client and realize some of my own memories that have begun to fade. Perhaps part of my own motive for working with my mommy clients and their maternity sessions is enjoying the memory making.

Maternity photography with a new momma

Getting to walk alongside a new mother is a very exciting privilege. There is so much that is changing, So many things are new, and everything is changing quickly!

My advice to a new mother who wants to get the best pregnancy pictures is simply to push aside so many of everyone else’s expectations and let me help you take time to focus on YOU. The best pictures I can get will come when you feel the most comfortable and authentic. The goal is not trying to get you on the cover of some “Perfect Mom Magazine”. It is to help express the real beauty and sense of awe.

Pregancy photos with an existing momma

If this isn’t your first pregnancy, it’s important to capture the unique elements of THIS baby. It is important for me to hear what you like or disliked in previous pictures, and what you want to focus on. There is a story in every little one, and our job (you and I together) is to capture it. It is often nice to include your other children in the photo shoot. Please let me know if you’d like to have them in photos with you.

My job as your maternity photographer

My job as your photographer is to come alongside and document you in your story. You are unique. Your pregnancy and baby are unique. I will capture your story.  I’m here to help you catch the moments that flash by so quickly, even though they seem to go on without change. Maternity pictures are meant to get the heart of this adventure.
