I'm not sure I fully appreciated maternity sessions until I became a mother. Sure, I knew all of the shots to get and what angles were flattering, but did I really comprehend the magnitude? I now find maternity sessions to be some of the most beautiful, and genuine, sessions I do. I love them. I want to show you this fleeting moment of your life, and help you remember what it was like to feel those soft kicks and rub that gorgeous belly dozens of times a day.
What a gift, to be able to bring life to another human being, and what a gift that you'd ask me to capture that for you.
28 to 32 weeks is perfect for most moms-to-be. This is a time frame where your belly is of ample size, yet you're not to that "I am an absolute whale" phase as you may be in your last few weeks. ;) Thought I have shot maternity sessions up close to the delivery day with beautiful results, feedback from expecting mothers has encouraged me to advise clients towards the earlier side when mamas are feeling their best and are more comfortable than they may be later.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER
We had the best time together, right? :) In the days following our session, you can expect to see some "sneak peeks" on Facebook- feel free to tag/share! I am always so flattered when clients use my photos on social media, I just ask that you give me a tag to help spread the word. Your full gallery will be ready within two weeks of the session, and I will email you the link for access. The download process is simple, but if you have any issues please don't hesitate to contact me. Although you'll receive a print release, you are able to order professional grade prints through your gallery. I cannot stress enough that is does matter where you get your photos printed! www.mpix.com is a more affordable alternative, and is available to the public. I am passionate about getting your photos off of your computer and onto your walls- beautiful canvas wraps, high-quality photo books, and premium prints are all amazing ways to preserve your memories for years to come. Your great-grandchildren won't be holding a hard drive, they'll be holding an actual photograph of you.
Full payment (cash, check, or card) is due at the time of the session.
