From the first time you hear their heartbeat to feeling that first kick, pregnancy is such an incredible time in a woman's life. The changing female form from pregnancy to mother is nothing short of beautiful, and I like to honor the pure beauty by keeping things simple.
I offer studio maternity sessions in the comfort of my natural light studio, located in Montgomery, Texas. I also offer outdoor maternity sessions in my nearby field location during the golden hour before sunset. Studio maternity sessions lend themselves to be more intimate, while outdoor sessions take in the natural landscape. The choice of location is up to you and depends on what look you prefer. My maternity gallery shows more examples of each.
Since clothing plays a big role in the look and feel of portraits, I offer a full wardrobe of beautiful, high-end dresses for expecting moms in a variety of sizes, as well as clothing for children up to the age of 5, and some options for dads as well. All of the pieces in the studio wardrobe have been carefully chosen for their soft tones and textures and their ability to flatter and photograph well.
Providing a wardrobe for you helps eliminate the stress of shopping and is part of the luxury experience I provide. Portrait sessions include an optional styling appointment at the studio prior to your session to try on clothing and coordinate family members, or you can choose clothing the day of your session.
Making sure that everyone looks great and feels comfortable ensures that we can create the best possible portraits of your family.
I also work with trusted, professional hair and makeup artists that help make you look your most beautiful on the day of the session. Most of my clients add on this optional service as it really enhances your natural beauty and elevates the look of your photos.
My makeup artist’s salon is conveniently located 10 minutes from the studio or she can travel to your home if you prefer.
While the main focus of the session is on you, maternity sessions also include a few photos with your significant other, as well as any other children.
I recommend maternity sessions to be taken between 28-32 weeks of pregnancy when you are showing, but not yet too uncomfortable.
The session lasts about 25 minutes, resulting in approximately 15 images. For those looking for longer sessions with more images, an option to extend the session is available for an additional fee.
Maternity sessions begin with a creative fee of $200, which includes my time photographing your session and hand-editing your images, your optional styling appointment, and your design and ordering appointment following your session. At the design and ordering appointment you will view your images in printed proofs, which gives you the opportunity to see all of your photos in print. I will help guide you through the process of choosing a Portrait Collection of digital images, as well as fine art products, and create heirloom artwork for your home.
Part of my luxury service includes sourcing high-quality display options, so you simply choose what you like and I do the rest for you. Maternity Portrait Collections begin at $150.
A popular option is to pair your maternity session with a newborn session, and when both sessions are booked together, I offer a $100 savings on your creative fees.
I would love to create beautiful memories for you during this amazing time. In order to provide my clients with a high quality experience I take on limited sessions per month, so I recommend booking in advance to secure your session date.
