Let’s capture the beautiful glow of motherhood that starts even before your little one arrives!
FOR THE MOMMY TO BE!
Say what?! You’re pregnant! Congrats!!! How awesome is that!
When expecting your first, second or even third child there is so much to plan and schedule. As a mother and a photographer, I’m telling you that adding maternity photography to that list is a must. Don’t miss the opportunity to document this beautiful moment in time like I did. It’s something that you can’t recreate. Let me help you remember the tiny kicks and capture the “pregnancy glow”.
Maternity photography has become much more common and sessions have increasingly become more creative. If you’re on the fence I’m going to give you a list of reasons WHY I should be YOUR maternity photographer and WHY maternity sessions are absolutely fabulous and necessary!
LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ON MATERNITY SESSIONS
These sessions can be styled. I have a variety of dresses to fit mamas of all sizes and shapes; I even have matching dresses in some styles for your little ones. Sessions usually last about 1 hour but can be longer or shorter depending on a number of factors. I prefer to shoot maternity on location. I love the landscape aspect when it comes to maternity and the magic it creates. Maternity Sessions can also be done in the comfort of your own home or my in-home studio located in South Minneapolis
Maternity Session starts at $400 and includes 10 digital images. Sessions can certainly include siblings and partners. I work with clients to create a unique photo session that is tailored to their liking and personality. I want you to love your photos.
THE REAL REASONS YOU NEED TO HAVE PROFESSIONAL MATERNITY PHOTOS DONE (BY ME!)
1. TREAT YO’SELF AND CELEBRATE YOUR PREGNANCY
Many women are said to feel the best during their pregnancy. Regardless, if this is you or not and whether you love how you look and feel; a professional maternity photo session will make you feel beautiful. The gowns, the locations, the life growing inside of you! I literally only have pictures of me standing sideways looking into the bathroom mirror to document my first pregnancy. I cannot express how sad and disappointed I am that I didn’t invest in a professional maternity session. I literally think of it every time I am photography a new mommy to be-which is often. So basically, I’m saying don’t be me.Let’s be friends, hire ME as YOUR photographer and I promise I will help you create beautiful photos that you will treasure forever and we will have a blast doing it together!
2. DOCUMENT THE JOURNEY
I absolutely believe that pregnancy is the perfect time to reflect and reminisce on how you and your partner came to be. Remembering what led up to this part of your journey to becoming a family. It doesn’t matter if it is your first, third, fourth or tenth child it’s all part of your story and it’s important to honor and document how you got to this point. Maternity sessions are truly just an extension of the family sessions.
3. CAPTURE THIS MOMENT IN TIME
You won’t be able to get this moment back. Life will never again be the same- so capture these moments as they are now. As a mom, I truly wish I had more pictures of Jack in my belly- when James was still an only child. It is truly emotional going from one to two children.
4. IT’S SO HARD TO WAIT!
I don’t know about you, but pregnancy was such an EXCITING time for me. I couldn’t wait to meet James or Jack. Let’s take some photos so you can remember the joy, the excitement, and all the other emotions that come with being pregnant and bringing new life into the world.
5. THE MORE THE MERRIER!
Have other kiddos already? Great, let’s get them involved. This time may be hard for children, change is never easy at least it’s not around my house! Let the children be part of the fun and make them feel special by involving them in the maternity session. Let them be the center of attention for a few moments.
6. JUST HAVE FUN WITH IT
Making a big reveal can be a lot of fun. Photos are a great way to share your babies name, gender or if you are having multiples- especially in the social media age that we live in. Not only are you sharing information with those that you love you are also documenting this magical moment in time.
Your Once-In-A-Lifetime Maternity Photography For When You’re At 30 Weeks
Getting that maternity photography session done is literally something that you can’t recreate. Let me help you remember the tiny ninja kicks and capture your “pregnancy glow”. I promise to make you look as beautiful as you are feeling.
I offer a variety of hand made gowns for mommas to be that fit ALL sizes. I get this question a lot from expecting moms: When is the right time for maternity photos? My simple answer is: “before you’re too big to feel uncomfortable or are at risk for going into labor!” I generally recommend that expecting moms consider scheduling their maternity photoshoot around 30-34 weeks.
Why? I find that most expecting mamas are still feeling pretty good around that mark and they’re excited to meet their baby. I love to capture that excitement in our session! Let’s document your pregnancy- the beginning of your journey to building a family.
