There's nothing quite like the feeling of your baby growing inside you, and beautiful maternity images can help preserve that feeling long after your baby has grown. A short & sweet Mini Maternity photo session, available only to Newborn or First Year clients, is a great opportunity to slow down and connect with your baby while documenting your pregnancy. One day your little one will love looking at pictures of him or herself in "mommy's tummy."
I was a little hesitant to do a maternity shoot, but because I knew it was a memory I would want to keep, I decided to just do it and I am SO glad I did. Brittany made me feel so comfortable and offered dress choices that she knew would be my style. During the shoot she helped me to look my best in the most natural way, and the photos came out so beautifully, she captured a “glow” I didn’t even realise I had!
Finding Brittany was the best thing that could’ve happened! She provided a beautiful wardrobe for my family to wear, that I selected from samples. On the day of the shoot she was kind, warm and professional. She was also super patient when we had to stop for me to nurse and truly gave me all the time I needed.
Ordering products was a breeze! Brittany helped us make final decisions on which photos to use for our album and which family portrait to frame. She was sooo patient, and provided her honest and professional opinion without being pushy which was so refreshing. We received our products this week and they were PERFECT! Amazing quality!
I loved working with Brittany for our newborn photoshoot for my daughter. She was easy to work with, thorough, KIND (important postpartum!), and she is so talented. We are IN LOVE with our photos of our baby. She was wonderful with our shy and cranky two year old as well. I completely recommend using Brittany, We are so happy we went with her!
Brittany was incredibly understanding and flexible! She’s a mom and completely relates to it all. Our images reflect our experience - beautiful, loving and a great moment in time. I love seeing the images of my newborn, whom she spent 20 minutes rocking to sleep. She is a one-of-a kind photographer and I HIGHLY recommend her.
I recommend scheduling your maternity photos around 31-35 weeks of pregnancy (sooner for multiples). This is a sweet spot when most moms-to-be are sporting a cute bump but still feeling pretty good. It also gives you some time to enjoy your maternity images before baby arrives. But no worries if you already later in your pregnancy, just reach out to me soon!
You're in luck! I have a selection of beautiful maternity-friendly gowns & robes in my Client Closet, ready for you to borrow for your session. If you choose to wear something of your own, I'm happy to make styling recommendations. Neutral colors help keep the focus on your bump and flowy fabrics add movement & softness.
Trust me, I get it! Pregnancy brings many changes and not all of them seem photo-worthy. No matter how you're feeling, I'll help you look your best during your session. We'll create images that showcase the bond you have with your growing baby and one day he or she will love looking at photos from "when I was in mama's tummy."
We'll first choose a location: in your home or outdoors. If you choose in-home, you can opt to stick with traditional lifestyle portraits or also include some more intimate poses in a robe or lingerie, with or without your belly bared - it's totally up to you! On the day of the session, I recommend treating yourself to professional hair styling - not only will it add polish to the photos, but you deserve to be pampered!
