YOUR MATERNITY SESSION
usually scheduled between 32-36 weeks pregnant, either in your home or at a location of your choice. When photographed at your home, I will focus on the meaningful connections you feel with your partner and the space that you are nesting to welcome your new baby home! Expect a gallery of you in baby's nursery and in the coziest areas of your where you and/or your partner enjoy relaxing. When scheduled at a public location, it will feel similar to an engagement or couples session, with light posing suggestions to bring out your natural emotions during this time in your life! i might ask you to bring along a few baby items you are most excited about, and i might bring along a blanket + coffee or tea!
pregnancy is magical. and shocking. and funny. and tiring. and primal. and mystifying. most of all, it's beautiful.
a maternity session with me is so much more than photographing your bump. it's about making a fleeting, anxious, exciting & sometimes scary time in your life stand still so that your future mama self can look back and remember (or realize for the first time ever!) how beautiful you were.
it's about documenting these sacred, easily forgotten moments in time to be reminded of what your life was like before the birth of your baby. as mothers, it can be so hard to remember life before babies - but every so often something can bring us back, and its usually a photo.
it's about being able to show your future sons and daughters what their mother looked like when she was carrying them. what she was doing. how she smiled. how she laughed. how she looked down at her belly and held it tight.
whether you're about to bring your first baby or your 5th baby into the world, the time just before baby arrives is a unique, special time in your life and i strive to document it with authenticity, warmth and love.
