maternity portfolio

Maternity sessions are a wonderful way to highlight your pregnancy and remember this time in your life. It seems like it lasts forever, but looking back it goes by so quickly.

Our studio offers full maternity sessions which are 60 minutes long and include up to 3 looks. For our newborn clients, we also offer petite maternity sessions at a reduced rate. These sessions are 30 minutes and can include up to 2 looks.


When should I contact you about a session? We recommend contacting our studio early 2nd trimester. We often start booking sessions 2 months in advance.

When should the session take place? Maternity photography sessions often take place between 30- 36 weeks. 1st time moms are usually towards the later, but it all depends on when your belly really begins to show and how you are feeling.

What should I wear? We have many maternity gowns for you to choose from and you are able to bring your own clothes as well. The maternity gowns are made to best highlight your growing belly and to make you feel beautiful. Before your session you will receive an email with information on undergarments and also a survey so we can best plan your session.

Can my husband be included? Absolutely. We encourage husbands and children to be included in our full maternity sessions. Our petite maternity sessions are for mom only due to time restrictions.

I don’t know how to pose. Don’t worry about posing. No experience necessary! Heather will direct you every step of the way to ensure you have beautiful pregnancy portraits.
