Maternity Sessions  

Maternity Photography Sessions give your child a glimpse of a world they’ll never be able to see for themselves.

WHAT IS A MATERNITY SHOOT?

A maternity shoot is a photo shoot or series of photo shoots done throughout pregnancy or the maternity period for a soon-to-be mother. Maternity sessions capture the beauty of your growing baby bump and glorify the unity of mom and baby.

Photography 

Pregnancy may not be a phase of your life you enjoy, especially in the last few months. As your body grows larger, you may not want any photos of yourself taken and wouldn’t want to share images with friends and family. It can be a challenge watching your body change so much, and it can also be easy to forget just how miraculous and incredible pregnancy really is. A maternity photo session allows you to focus on the new life your body is working so hard to create, instead of the way you look, and can remind you of the excitement and joy that comes with bringing your child into the world.

TYPES OF SHOOTS

We like to make it easy

1

In-Studio

By choosing a studio session you avoid all the elements and avoid bad weather, allowing for a comfortable and perfect environment for you and your belly baby.

2

Outdoors

We have several locations that we use to capture beautiful outdoor maternity pictures. When the weather and light cooperate, outdoor sessions are magical! 

3

In-Home

A maternity photo session captures that fleeting time just before baby arrives. It celebrates your family in that beautiful stage of anticipation, waiting, excitement.

    Maternity Shoot FAQs

    Your best bet is to book your maternity session somewhere around 20 weeks, around when you find out the sex of your baby. The best time to take your photos is in your third trimester, between 28 and 32 weeks. At this point, your bump will be showing well and look great in photos, and you will still be able to move around and pose comfortably. 

    Our gear includes professional-grade, Canon bodies, Sony Bodies, a variety of Pro & Cinema lenses + external lighting equipment by Aputure, Godox, Nanlite & More.

    We don’t charge extra for things like drone shots, if your location can accommodate them & we feel it’s best for the film and if we have time, we will definitely do it. But sometimes it’s just not called for or applicable so we don’t want to charge you and have to give you bad news the day of. Whatever package you go far you’re going to get stunning shots. We utilize techniques like shooting in high frame rates and we use tools like drones, gimbals, sliders, dollys, and more to make sure our shots are smooth and beautiful. 

    *tip don’t book within 5 miles of an airport or public area.

    We love printed goods! We offer prints produced through our own lab and have partnered with both VideoBox and Album Craftsmen to deliver your memories in the most elegant way possible. 

    All weddings & lifestyle sessions are delivered through an online gallery for easy viewing, sharing, and downloading. lifestyle sessions take about 2 weeks to be processed and weddings can take up to 3 weeks. 

    Whether you want to keep it casual with jeans or wear a flowing maternity dress, or even both, the most important thing is that they fit and look the way you want them to look. You should also pick out clothing for any other family members who will be part of the session to make sure theirs don’t clash with your own. 

    If you really want to look your best, a professional makeup artist is the way to go. A pro will know how to do your makeup so it shows best in photos. If you decide to do your makeup yourself, you want to go a little bolder with your makeup than you normally would make sure your eyes and lips are well-defined in your images.

    Once you book your session we have a checklist for you to go through in preparation for your shoot. So even if it’s your first time we can guide you through the process of getting your best results.
