Pregnancy is such a gift. I am constantly in awe of all of the beautiful expecting Moms that come to me for their maternity sessions. They have so much grace, strength and beauty. Women have all kinds of different experiences with getting pregnant… some struggle for years and need fertility assistance. Some get pregnant on their very first try. Some have experienced loss, heartache, while others have only felt joy since trying to conceive. Every family has a different story as to how they arrived at their session with me, and I see and celebrate all of them. I love when mamas are a little more vulnerable and choose to show their belly during their maternity session with me. I have a collection of robes in the studio that are light, feminine and show off those sweet baby bumps. Most women choose to do one dress and one robe look when they come to the studio, and I love both.
Here are some examples of intimate maternity sessions. I hope that they inspire you and remind you how beautiful pregnancy is. It is a blessing and I want to celebrate however you decide to start your family.
I had never imagined offering outdoor newborn sessions… until the pandemic started! Before I was able to open the studio again...
I recently created this beautiful canvas backdrop and immediately started dreaming about photographing a mother and daughter session on it!
How adorable is baby C? She was born at the start of this pandemic and wasn’t able to have her newborn photos done. Her and her mama were such a delight
