Maternity sessions are normally done between 32 and 37 weeks. I have dresses available for moms if you wish to use one at no additional charge. For these sessions, I like to focus on mom and belly, the connection. I guide mom in posing so that every pose is flattering. For family shots, I like to see everyone interacting and smiling. These sessions are a beautiful mix of posed and lifestyle images. A proof gallery is sent to you a week after your session to view and select your final images. Additional images are available to be purchased at this time as well. I have a two week turn-around on editing once final images are selected. Ask about discounted maternity/newborn package options.
SCHEDULING YOUR SESSION : “All sessions require a $100 non-refundable booking retainer to secure your session date and time. Outdoor sessions may be rescheduled due to weather, so keep that in mind when selecting your date. Weekend sessions are an additional fee when booking.
PROOF GALERY : Within a week after your session, an online proofing gallery will be provided to you to view all the unedited images that came out from your session and you will have up to one week to select your final images for editing. At this time, you will also have the option to purchase additional images if you wish. Once you select your images, it will take 1 to two weeks for editing to be complete.
FINAL IMAGES : When I have finished editing your selected images, I will send you an email with an online gallery to view and download your images. Images are high resolution jpeg files and can be printed up to 20×30 in size. Your final gallery will include the option to purchase high quality professional prints at a discounted rate. You will also be able to download the images to your computer to save and order at any time. The final gallery will be open for two weeks, then will expire and I will store your edited images for 1 year in case you need to download them again. Unedited images are kept for 3 years and then purged.
PRINTS AND ALBUMS : Contact me for albums for your newborn and cake smash sessions.
MATERNITY SESSION PACKAGES
Maternity sessions can be done in the studio or at the beach. The session can be a family session, or be just mom (or mom with little ones). Mom to be is able to use 2 gowns from my client closet. 15 fully edited digital images are included with each session, with the option to purchase additional images. Sessions last 45 minutes to 1 hour. Weekend sessions are an additional $75.
The studio is the perfect place to escape the heat, or the rain, and the bugs! You won’t sweat away your makeup, and it will be just you and your family in the studio. From some lifestyle poses and setups including the couch, egg chair, and other props, I also use solid backdrops for more posed shots, tossing the dress shots, and showing the belly.

Beach sessions are scheduled 30 minutes before sunset to capture the best lighting and those beautiful skies! We start with family poses, spouse poses, then move to just mom! If you choose to wear a second dress, we will meet a little earlier to allow for time for a dress change.
