maternity sessions

 

This is such a magical time. Whether it’s your first baby or your fourth, whether you got pregnant the first month you were trying or got pregnant after many months and much intervention, whether you are carrying this child nervously after a loss or you are nervous because this baby wasn’t quite planned, pregnancy is something beautiful to document and celebrate. Not only will your future child love looking back on these photos, but they’ll capture this special time for YOU and document the life “before”, as your last photos with your partner before having children or your last family photos as a family of 3, 4 or 5.

when to schedule

 

Ideally, maternity photos are scheduled between weeks 30 and 35 of your pregnancy, to highlight your growing bump without cutting it too close to your due date. I offer discounted mini sessions for clients who book a Studio or Lifestyle Signature Newborn Session.
