Maternity Sessions usually last 1 hour and are meant to be fun! You are welcome to include spouses/partners/children within your Session, or have it simply revolve around just you for once.

Nothing is ever stiff or formal with me, so expect that we will get a little chatty. We laugh. We talk. I’ll probably fix your hair at least 20 times and ask you to humor me for “just one more idea”.


When should I schedule my Maternity Session?

Maternity Sessions are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks to ensure that we don’t schedule too close to your due date, but that you are far enough along to have an amazingly full belly to show off! Be sure to contact me by the end of your second trimester to secure availability on my calendar.


Where should I have my Maternity Session?

Location Location Location! I have my favorite places, and usually make a recommendation during our consultation based on your personality and style, but I always welcome your location ideas. I’d love to know if there is a place that is sentimental to your family so we can discuss our options and plan the best location to suit your family. To figure out a great location for your Session, we will work together to determine the best location based on the vision you had in mind. We can do anything from an open grassy field, to textured and urban, to layered and woodsy – whatever you like!


What do I get with my Maternity Session?

Once the session is over, you will receive a sneak peek of what we accomplished!  At your consent, these are shared on our Facebook Business Page, so make sure to “like it” to receive updates.  About 1-2 weeks after your Maternity Session, you will an email in your inbox that contains a link to your password-protected online gallery so you can view your images. You will receive approximately 30-35 edited images in high resolution. You can order professional prints through us, or you print them yourself since you will also receive a print release form.


How do I book my Maternity Session?

To book, simply fill out the contact form here or give us a call! A $100 non-refundable down payment is required to hold your spot, which will be applied towards the Session balance. A signed Contract & Client Information Form will also need to be filled out at the time of booking before a date is scheduled into my calendar.
