Creatively Capturing Your Beautiful Baby Bump

I feel privileged when a mom-to-be trusts me to capture these incredible moments of promise that make being pregnant such a wonderful time (even if that wonderful time includes swollen ankles and a dwindling wardrobe!).

You can see from my portfolio and my maternity blog posts how different each maternity photo shoot can be. I enjoy personalizing each session, and want this experience to be as unique as your pregnancy. My work ranges from the playful outdoors to intimate and private maternity boudoir. As your maternity photographer, its my job to customize your session to be as unique as your pregnancy.

What does my maternity session include?

  • One 90 Minute Session at our studio located in Westlake near the corner of 360 and Bee Cave Road.
  • A pre-consultation to discuss and plan your session.
  • Up to four wardrobe changes which includes those of the studio.
  • Private Viewing / Ordering Appointment at our studio.
  • 50% Off Your Newborn Creative Session Fee when booked with a Maternity Session

How do I schedule my maternity photo shoot?

Call about your session as soon as you know you want pregnancy photos! I recommend scheduling your maternity session to take place between weeks 32 and 36. I believe that bellies are beautiful at any size! However, I do feel it’s important to consider how you are feeling, and I’d like you to be as comfortable as possible. The timing is really up to you. Some of my clients have had their maternity images taken at 28 weeks, while I have had a couple of moms sneak them in right before the baby arrives at 40+ weeks.

We will start with a consultation, by phone or by email, to talk about the session you have in mind. At that time, we will discuss how your clothing preferences, hair and makeup ideas, and location will help us create your finished artwork.

Should you desire a location other than our studio for your maternity session please let me know in advance to discuss any additional pricing that may be involved. Weather depending we are often able to step right outside the studio to take advantage of the outdoors to allow for the convenience of studio & outdoors.

Fees and Minimum Investment

Your creative session fee does not include any prints or products. There is a minimum investment with each session in addition to your creative session fee. This can be made up of digital images, prints or other products. See my pricing page for additional information.
