Maternity sessions are an exciting way to document this unique time in your life. Schedule a solo shoot, or bring your partner and plan to have a fun, relaxed session celebrating your growing belly and almost-here little one.

I know that being photographed (especially while pregnant!) can sometimes feel awkward, but I promise to work with you to achieve poses that are comfortable and make you look and feel fabulous.


Whether you choose to have me meet your newborn at the hospital, or opt for a more formal photography shoot in your home once you’ve all settled in, I will make sure you have the best, least-stressful photography experience possible.

It can be difficult to travel with a newborn, so let me come to you! All newborn sessions include travel to your home, hospital, or other convenient location of your choice. (I also know how impossible it can be to keep a spotless house with a brand new baby, so please know that I absolutely will not judge if your home is a little cluttered during our session!)

What your session includes:  Lifestyle sessions capture your baby and your family as they are in that moment.  These sessions include very little posing and minimal props, and allow you and your baby to simply relax and be “natural.”  The photos you receive will be more casual and candid, and less posed.  Of course, they will also include images of all of those sweet  newborn details!
