You may have considered professional maternity photos but you worry that you won’t look good, if you’re not a size two supermodel.
Now, I won't sugarcoat it. Being pregnant can be uncomfortable. Your body is going through some wild changes. But fear not! As your trusty maternity photographer, my mission is to make you look and feel like a million bucks during our session. You'll be posing like a pro, feeling like a queen, and rocking that baby bump like nobody's business.
Anyone can take photos nowadays, right? But it takes a special kind of photographer to truly capture you with your curvy new body, your family, and your sweet new babe in a unique artistic manner.
Only an experienced (25+ years) photographer, like me has worked out all the steps to a successful family session. I know how to work my fancy camera in all kinds of situations, have a secret sauce method to ensure that everyone (yes, even Dad-to-be!) has a blast and all the while making sure you look like the goddess that you are.
And here's the best part: once the session is over, you can slip into your comfiest clothes, kick your feet up, and indulge in some well-deserved chocolate therapy. Trust me, it's the perfect way to celebrate your bravery in pushing past any discomfort and doubts.
So, let's capture your radiant glow, your amazing strength, and your undeniable beauty as you embark on this incredible journey. Together, we'll create memories that will make you smile, laugh, and maybe even crave pickles and ice cream simultaneously. It's a win-win!
Are you ready to embrace the belly and have a blast? Let's make it happen, mama!

Why you should invest in a photographer
Yes! I accept payments for your digital file collections and print products. I also accept payments for the session fee, but you will have to pay it in full prior to our photo session.
I'll be sending you a Welcome style guide that is filled with fashion tips to help you rock your photo session and if you like, you can show me what you've picked out during our pre-session phone chat. I'll give you my feedback on your choices.
If there's a 40% chance (or more) of rain, then you can decide if you prefer to reschedule, have the session at your home or take a chance and meet for the session as planned. Sorry, no refunds for rainy sessions.
Full maternity photo sessions can take place at your home, a location of your choice or a one of my favorites spots. My favorite locations include pretty nature, have room to play, explore, and to move around. You can check them out HERE.
Each location has pros and cons and each has a different look and feel. During your pre-portrait phone consultation, I’ll help you decide which is the best location to tell your family’s story.
"Short and Sweet" Mini maternity sessions take place at Biltmore Lake. You can learn more about this location HERE.
Most families prefer the convenience of having their newborn session at their home, however you can also choose an outdoor location if you prefer.
The ideal time to do the session is 6-8 weeks before your due date. This way your belly is nice and round but you are still relatively comfortable.
New baby sessions can be taken at any time although if you want you baby to be very little, sleepy and curled up then best to have the session within the first two weeks after delivery. Some families prefer their baby to be awake and be more expressive - f this is the case, then best to wait for a month or so.
