Why book pregnancy portraits?
Your pregnancy is an exciting time; your heart is filled with joy as you prepare to meet the greatest love of your life: your child. The unconditional bond, soft kicking of feet - you feel it all. Preserving this memory is a beautiful way to celebrate your baby bump. There will be a time where the pitter-pattering of small feet has ceased to echo and you will long to feel your belly swell. It's bittersweet though a timeless maternity session will always preserve this wonderful time before your little love enters the world.
As a mother to four young children (Lucy, Amelia, Jack and Emma) I can attest how fleeting this time is and through professional lighting and posing, you’re sure to look and feel your best during our time together.

What is an online proofing gallery?
2 weeks (14 days) after your session takes place, your gallery selections are sent to you via a private, password-protected gallery to the e-mail provided on your contract. The gallery selections are the proofing gallery.
Your proofing gallery will have the top images from our time together. These are the images from which you'll select the number of digital files that come in your package. The pictures you do not select are discarded.
Rush editing is available for purchase, however, should you be eager to see your images before the contractual date of 2 weeks.
Soft proofing means light edits are applied to the top images from your session. This allows me to retouch only the chosen images. Full edits such as skin smoothing, eye sharpening, teeth whitening, etc., are completed once you have selected your favorite photos. Professionally enhanced final edits are finished 3 business days after you choose your images. Business days are Monday – Friday.
Motherhood wardrobe is provided
I have a client wardrobe mothers may use for their session. It includes gowns that photograph well in the space, typically in small-large sizes. They are flowy and timeless. You are welcome to use one for our session though if you have an outfit from home, you prefer that's fine, too! If you would like to use the client wardrobe please wear a nude bra and bring an underslip to prevent undergarments from showing.
There is also a sister wardrobe, too, in sizes 3 months – 5t.
What should Dads/Significant others or siblings wear to sessions?
For siblings and Dad: please stick to neutrals, if possible, or muted pastels. Avoid neon colors. Orange, yellow, bright greens or pinks are not favorable. Colors that photograph well are light grey, tans, creams, white, and ivory. Seafoam, mauve, and colors of this sort are lovely, too!
Dads look lovely in a pair of jeans or khaki pants, simple button-up, or even a polo shirt without distracting labels. Moms can do a long maxi dress if they would like or cardigan, tank top, whichever you're comfortable.
Children look precious in jeans or khaki pants with a solid or neutral colored top. Little girls look darling in a simple cotton dress without any cartoon characters or distracting labels.
