As a mother of three, I can tell you we don't get enough credit for growing another human being. We easily lose who we are for an entire 9+ months and that doesn't even include the adjustment to the postpartum period. Us moms have to deal with the morning sickness, pregnancy brain, tiredness, and difficulty with our day to day tasks like simply putting our shoes on. For this, I applaud all mothers! We are truly amazing! Lets celebrate the difficulties we go through, the changes that happen to our body and skin, and our insatiable appetite for all things sweet or salty. I am here for it all and right by your side every step of the way!
My private studio environment is designed with you in mind. I have privacy blinds throughout my studio, a custom maternity closet, and we can't forget the wide variety of snacks. My private maternity closet ranges from glamours gowns to other modern/contemporary looks. There is also a wide variety of body jewelry and flowing fabrics.
I truly cannot wait to become your lifelong family photographer!
No two pregnant mommas are the same. The way we feel, the way we carry our babies, and how our bodies change is unique to each and every one of us! I want to bring out your true personality and natural beauty, all while channeling that inner goddess (I know you have!!)! Maternity sessions are fun, laid back and stress free! This is so important because your overall mood and how you are feeling totally speaks through your portraits!
The ideal window to have your session is around 30-34 weeks pregnant. However, each momma is different, so this timeframe can vary! I highly recommend booking well in advance.
Email me (Amanda) and let's get on a no pressure phone call chat about your session!
Your session includes a complimentary in person planning consultation. We will tour the studio and dive into 100+ of my handmade, custom maternity gowns and fully plan your session from your favorite colors, location, backdrops and more! Each of these details will provide you with an absolute unique experience for this special time in your lives!
To fully book, we review the contract together and you will pay the reservation fee to hold your date.
Hair and makeup is available and is booked separately.
Because we previously completed your in personal consultation, your session will already be fully planned and set up prior to your arrival. The only thing left is to bring yourself and enjoy your session!
Your detailed preparation guide will give you tips on how to get children, parents and siblings ready for the session, including what to wear!If you have selected a luxurious gown from my maternity wardrobe, a private changing room will be provided on location or you will have full access to my studio wardrobe area during the session.
Sessions typically last 2-3 hours. Don't worry about poses or nervous dad; I will guide you each step of the way to create truly authentic moments that conveys the love you have for one another!
The BEST part!!
One week following your session, we will have a one on one ordering appointment where you will make your final selections of your favorite images! This is also the time where you will also choose handcrafted photo products such as albums, wall art to be displayed in your home, and digital files. I will be here every step of the way guiding you and helping you select the best images for your home! You can expect your final images and fine art pieces to be ready in 4-6 weeks.
