Maternity Portraits



After your session, I go through all of your images and select the best of the best to edit. I then carefully edit your images in my signature bright, light, and airy style with the latest high-end editing software. Within two-three weeks, your images will be presented to you in a private online gallery where you can easily download them or order prints and products!

step 4: the gallery

We will in most cases meet just before "golden hour" aka about an hour or two before sunset, unless you opt for an in home session.. Your session will be relaxed and I will guide you through all of the posing!  

step 3: your session

After you book, you will receive a confirmation email that will include my Session Style Guide which will give you all the tips and tricks you will need to know to have a stress-free session, including what to wear, colors that photograph beautifully, how to prepare your spouse and other children if you have any, and how to choose a location for your session.  Your confirmation email will also contain a code for you to use my amazing online styling program to achieve a gorgeous and cohesive look for your photos.

step 2: planning

As soon as you've decided you'd like to book your session with me, reserve your session online.  I recommend scheduling your maternity session for when you are between 28-34 weeks pregnant.  

step 1: book your session

here's how
it works

When should I book our maternity pictures?
The best time to take maternity pictures is around 28-34 weeks, so choose your session month accordingly!  You should book your session as soon as possible, as my schedule sometimes fills up many months in advance. 
Do you travel for sessions?
Yes, I do and I have travelled all over New England and the east coast for shoots! I live in Scituate, and charge according to how far a location is from my home.  Current travel fees can be viewed here.
Does the price of our session include digital images?
Yes, all packages include printing rights to all of your digital images.
How much should we expect to spend on our session and prints?
You can view my pricing by clicking here.  Heirloom prints and products can also easily be ordered straight from your online gallery; most families spend between $100 and $500 on products from their gallery.
Can my children be included in our session?
Yes, of course!  Your spouse/partner and children are encouraged and welcome to be part of our session.
Can our dog be included in our session?
Yes, as long as our location allows dogs.  I recommend bringing along a "dog wrangler" friend or family member ;-)
We are so excited and are ready to book our session! What's next?
Wonderful! Simply head to my booking page here to reserve your maternity session.  You will then receive a confirmation email with all sorts of helpful information to begin planning your session!
