Your transition to motherhood is sacred and worthy of being preserved. Motherhood is powerful and humbling, it will fill you up and make your heart explode, and it will bring you to your knees. It changes you forever - you will never be the person you were before you held your newborn baby in your arms. My goal in documenting this fleeting time for you is not only to help you celebrate the life you carry, but to honor the woman you are and the life you've built.
As you prepare to meet your little one, we'll be able to plan a maternity session that feels authentic to you so that you can enjoy actual moments and memories.
Whether we document your Friday night pizza-making tradition at home, an evening at the beach by yourselves, a visit back to your childhood home, or one last big trip to an amazing babymoon destination, your maternity session is meant to document the life you live now as you wait for baby.
Once baby is here, we'll meet again for your newborn session. I'll take care of all of the details for you - you simply connect and breathe in that fresh new baby in your arms.
We'll get started by chatting about what's important to you - do you already have a vision? We'll work through what inspires you, what you want to have documented. When I have a sense of your vision, I'll get to work putting all the details together - finding the perfect location and helping you style your session from wardrobe to finishing touches.
Your location will be the background to both the feel and the photographs of your session. You'll want to choose a place that's meaningful to you - maybe it's a place you've never been, or maybe it's a place that holds your heart. Maybe you'll travel with your love and the baby you carry to a beautiful faraway place, or maybe you want to go home to your family farm. Think of a place where you'll feel free to connect and be yourself.
One of the most important elements in your photographs will be your wardrobe. You are invited to an in-person or virtual styling appointment to browse through my studio wardrobe. You'll have access to a well-curated collection of pieces for mamas and children chosen specifically for their color, texture, and draping, ensuring that they photograph beautifully.
You'll get to see all of our planning come to life! Start the day being pampered with hair and makeup, then join me at the most perfect setting to enjoy time with your family. Truly live these moments - explore together, take it all in - you'll carry this life for just a few more weeks and you'll be a different person when you transform into a mother. Celebrate life as it is right now as you hope and wait.
Within 2 weeks of our time together, you'll receive all of the hand-edited images from your session. You'll be able to share and print directly from your online gallery. You also have the option to have a custom-designed heirloom album to display and enjoy in your home for years to come.

Yes! You receive the printing rights to your images which are delivered via digital download. You can order prints and products directly from your gallery and I am happy to design an heirloom album from your session.
do you provide the digital files?
All sessions and styling appointments are scheduled on weekdays. One weekend a month is reserved with sunrise and sunset availability for select locations.
If you want to capture the freshness of your newborn, I suggest scheduling when baby is 5-14 days old. However, there is never a wrong time to document your baby!
When are sessions held?
when do you photograph newborns?
You are welcome to choose from my studio wardrobe which is a well-curated selection of pieces for mamas and children, designed to photograph beautifully and save you time and expense, or I am more than happy to create a customized styling guide designed around your venue and vision. I always suggest a neutral color palette with texture and movement.
what do we wear?
I would suggest reaching out as soon as you feel comfortable with your pregnancy to ensure we can schedule your session during the timeframe you'd like. My schedule typically books up 3-4 months in advance.
when should we book?
I find the window between 28 and 32 weeks to work best for most expectant mothers. You will have a beautiful baby bump, but won't yet be feeling swollen or uncomfortable.
