Raleigh Maternity Photographer

LET'S DOCUMENT THE STORY OF YOUR PREGNANCY JOURNEY TOGETHER.

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 photos 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.

The Maternity Experience

hey beautiful bump

One of the most common queries pregnant women have about maternity shoots is when the most appropriate time to have the photoshoot 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 maternity shoot 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! 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.

JUST BE YOURSELVES

When you look through my online portfolio, 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.

I recognize that every client is different. I approach each client individually. I believe that embracing uniqueness and individuality sets my photography apart from other professionals.

How It Works

The Process

1. SAY HELLO
Now that you know what to expect from me, it is time to focus on you, your family, and the sweet little one growing inside of you!

I believe in the power of genuine, engaged conversation between my clients and myself. I want to know as much about your family and pregnancy as you are willing to tell me. I want to know whether the baby is a boy or a girl, if you have a name picked out, and whether you have other children. I would love to know every detail you envision when you picture these maternity shots, from style to location to poses!

At your earliest convenience, contact me. We will select an estimated date for you, and then we will dive into a conversation about your expectations for the session.

2. PLANNING YOUR SESSION
Please note: A non-refundable retainer and contract are required to book a photo session. After completion, I will send you a questionnaire (which will help me get to know you better). Your answers will allow me to prepare for this session to meet your expectations. Because I pride myself on image quality, consistency, and unique style, there are a few steps I need to take when getting ready. Thankfully, my process keeps it as simple as possible!
