Pregnancy is amazing, with all the changes….a beautiful big belly filled with a beautiful blessing. Sometime you may NOT feel beautiful, but thats where I come in. I want you to remember how beautiful it is, that despite the pain and effort you are carrying a precious life….and capture it in pics! Pregnancy is BEAUTIFUL!

When to schedule a session
Best time for a maternity session is 5-6 months gestation for most women. This is the time when the bump is very noticeable, but you are not at the point when you are becoming uncomfortable with the extra weight at the end of the pregnancy. This also allows time for prints to be ordered and delivered for the nursery before the baby arrives.

What the session includes

  • 30 minute maternity session. Feel free to include clothing changes and props such as booties or bows or other baby things that we can include in photos.
  • Immediate family members may join in this session.
  • Session can take place in your home or an agreed upon outdoor location.
  • 25 high-resolution edited images with print release.
  • Opportunity to purchase more high-res images and prints ($15/each, all images/$99)
  • FREE low-res image gallery for social media use (roughly 25-40).



When it comes to Baby sessions, there are 2 types of sessions….


  • Less handling of the baby
  • Fewer props, backgrounds and clothes
  • Much interaction between the baby and her family and environment

Lifestyle could mean coming to your house and following you and baby around getting images of baby’s everyday doings.
I really enjoy lifestyle sessions because I feel that many people would be more happy in the future with seeing pictures of history in the making and baby in his/her element making his/her story rather than posed images. I like it where a family just does what they do normally and does NOT have the house spotless in order to get authentic lifestyle images.

As I have helped find photos of my family in preparing for a published book, I have found that the lifestyle pictures are my favorite! From the toys we played with to the house we grew up in, its refreshing to see how we interacted with each other and our surroundings. The lifestyle pictures actually tell an interesting story.

POSED Session
  • Usually requires more time
  • More posing of baby, including swaddling and soothing between poses
  • Requires more props, wraps, posing pillows and backgrounds
  • Focus is on the baby him/herself with fewer images of baby interacting with family

During your consultation, please tell me which style you prefer.
