Welcome Thursday!  We are finishing up a very busy week of babies and expecting moms and have a few more portrait sessions throughout the week that we have been planning all the details for … so excited to see them come to fruition.

We have been photographing maternity and newborn portraits for many years now.  Over the years we have been asked many questions and have learned some of the most frequently asked questions for pregnancy and baby portrait sessions.  We are starting a series where we will dedicate time on the blog to address some of these questions for those considering a portrait session.

Today we will discuss one of the most asked questions from our Baby Portrait Plan clients:

Your question:  “How will my maternity portraits look?”

We hear so often… “How will my maternity portraits look if I don’t feel beautiful?”

Our answer:  We deliver gorgeous, custom-styled maternity portraits that are undeniably beautiful!

This question is one we hear often and it tugs at our heart because we honestly see beauty in each and every client at every moment we capture.  This is a delicate subject …  sometimes moms tell us they do not feel they look their best with the changes of their body during pregnancy.  The truth is those changes are brought forth by the formation of your precious baby, a little miracle, a blessing, the entire reason for the portrait session and the very thing we highlight in your maternity portrait session.  Your maternity portrait session is all about baby and you … this moment of bonding, and the beauty in this new journey of life.  You are becoming a mom and it’s an amazing moment, full of beauty and love.

We want clients to feel how beautiful motherhood can be … and this is just the beginning.  And honestly, our expectant moms naturally have a radiance about them!  Motherhood is such an exquisite season of life and those maternal hormones produce a delightful glow in expectant moms.  Sometimes we can’t see beauty in ourselves, but it truly does exist.  Here are a few things to consider:

Our expertise is in maternity and baby photography.  This means we understand the importance of the moment and after years of experience, we know exactly how to capture each and every client to highlight this important journey of life.  We understand lighting, angels, posing, locations, styling, wardrobe and details and we work them all together to achieve gorgeous maternity portraits.

We understand you want to look and feel beautiful and you will!  As part of our Baby Portrait Plan, we offer the option of complimentary hair/makeup from our stylist so you are confident when approaching your custom styled maternity photo shoot.  Every maternity client we have ever photographed finds herself in awe when she sees her portraits during her personal ordering/viewing session.  Our approach to maternity photography is so different and it makes all the difference in the final product!

As part of our Baby Portrait Plan, we also provide maternity wardrobe options for you.  Many clients utilize their own maternity fashions, and that is perfect as well, but we do have maternity wardrobe options available should you wish to utilize them.  Our maternity wardrobe includes hand chosen gowns, dresses, fabrics and accessories that are proven to fit and photograph well.  In addition, we always provide clients with what to wear ideas and we are accessible to clients for wardrobe styling prior to their portrait session.

As a mom myself, I know that the journey into motherhood is an incredible memory to be treasured.  This is a time you can’t turn back, do-over or re-live…and these are the types of moments that matter.  At this very moment of pregnancy, you are entering into mothe

rhood and it will change your world forever in the best ways possible.  This is a moment to remember in all of it’s beauty and we are here to capture that for you.


Weather permitting, we adore outdoor maternity portrait sessions.  The beauty of nature is so evident and adds so much to custom portrait photography.  We love to capture a few tummy poses in each maternity photo shoot, highlighting the natural curves of mommy with her baby bump.

Couple portraits are a beautiful capture … they demonstrate the love and emotion of the moment… we always love to have daddy in the portraits.  This is a unique moment for couples and their relationships.  The journey into parenthood is all their own and deserves to be celebrated.

This moment is one of bonding … mom and baby are one as mom carries her child within, her heart is so attached to this child.  The relationship that is forming at this moment is one of strength and unconditional, overwhelming love.  These emotions pour through in every portrait … the love is so real and the weight of this moment is understood … the love of a mother knows no bounds.
