Providing you a truly one of a kind experience by PLANNing EVERY Tiny DETAIL!
No two pregnancies are alike and as such, no two maternity sessions are the same. Each #FTLMom I photograph, is an amazing fit. I truly want to mesh well with you. I want the experience to be fun, laid back and stress free, as it will resonate in your images! The ideal time to have your session is when you are 34 weeks along. Some couples book me earlier to be able to secure their date as I book out well in advance.
In short there's only one of me, and dates fill up fast, so be sure to book yours early!
Email me (Amanda) and let's get on a no pressure phone call chat about your session!
Your session comes with a complimentary planning consultation. We will discuss your session along with my proven workflow. You will be able to pick from my private studio or one of my beautiful locations. You will also have the ability to see the all of the available gowns in my expansive maternity wardrobe, which are included with your session. Each of these details will provide you with an absolute unique experience for this special time in your lives! We will go through the contract and you will sign it and pay the reservation fee to hold your due date.
A detailed prep guide will be provided on how to get you, your significant other, and any children 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. Your session is up to 2 hours and I will guide you and your family to create truly authentic moments that conveys your love for one another!
After your session, we will have a one on one ordering appointment where you will make your final selections of your favorite images you cannot live without! This is also the time where you will also choose heirloom photo products like albums, premium metal or canvas, or framed prints to be displayed in your home. I will be here every step of the way guiding you and helping you select your images for you home! You can expect your final images and fine art pieces to be ready in 4-6 weeks.

I am not going to lie, I was so nervous about getting maternity photos done. My body had changed so much in just a short amount of time and I was extremely self conscious, even though I was proud and excited for my baby at the same time. Every step of the way, Amanda made the process fun and empowering. I had a blast, and my confidence has been up so much since getting my photos. I feel like I should have never had those thoughts about my body with how beautifully Amanda captured it. If you are thinking about getting maternity photos, DO IT. And book them with Amanda. Period.

We are so impressed with what we have seen of the session so far and can’t wait for the final photos! Highly recommend working with FtLoP!"
