If you are visiting this page as an expecting mother-to-be, congratulations! I am thrilled to have you here. As the mom of three boys, I often reflect upon my pregnancies with fondness and joy. While, in hindsight, my pregnancies seemed to fly by, I am always amazed at how they managed to change who I was for the better. When you are in the thick of pregnancy, it is difficult to imagine a time when you will ever NOT be pregnant. However, that time will quickly come, and you will undoubtedly find yourself reminiscing those special moments when your little one was tucked safely within your womb.
Maternity portraits made by an award-winning Raleigh Maternity Photographer are a beautiful way to freeze time so you can remember the incredible journey that brought your child into the world. Pregnancy is truly a miracle, and it deserves to be photographed and remembered as such.
One of the most common queries pregnant women have about maternity shoots is when the most appropriate time to have the photo session is. Of course, the woman must be far enough along in her pregnancy that she has a noticeable bump. Simultaneously, it is important not to push the shoot back too far, as babies can technically be born at any point, especially during the third trimester.
Based on my experience, I believe that the best time for a photo session with your Raleigh Maternity Photographer is between 28 and 32 weeks of gestation.
Most pregnant women have experienced the equally exciting and defeating moment when it feels like none of their pre-pregnancy clothes fit. It can be difficult to feel beautiful, let alone ready to be featured in a photoshoot.
No need to worry – I have you covered! As a Raleigh Maternity Photographer, I offer complimentary access to my client closet. This closet has been carefully curated with gorgeous pieces available in many sizes, colors, and textures. Selected with my clients in mind, these pieces are intended to help them feel like the beautiful moms-to-be that they are.
When you look through my maternity portraits, you will notice that the people in the photos look relaxed and comfortable. Even if the thought of a photo session sounds awkward to you, you can trust me and my knowledge to pose you naturally and in a flattering way.
As a Raleigh Maternity Photographer, I recognize that every client is different and approach each client individually. I believe that embracing uniqueness and individuality sets my photography apart from other professionals.
A non-refundable retainer and a contract are required to secure your maternity photo session. A non-refundable retainer covers my time and talent during your portrait session, as well as session preparation (my consultations, newborn session guidance, location selection, access to my client closet, one fitting appointment, etc.). All digital images and products are sold separately that way you only buy what you love! Artwork credits are included in every collection to help you fill your walls with your beautiful images. I offer a variety of artwork for your walls, and heirloom albums to display your images.
