Celebrate this chapter before the incredible story really begins

Motherhood maternity sessions are such a wonderful way to celebrate this most miraculous time in your life. Growing a child is incredibly exhausting filled with aches and pains, all the cravings, and so much more. It’s a time for first time parents to become nervous about all the little things and for seasoned parents to figure out how this little one will fit in perfectly with their sibling(s). 

Your child will know how much love there was before they were even born.

I typically like to schedule your maternity session between 30 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. By this stage your baby belly will be more pronounced and you’ll also still feel pretty good. After the 36-week mark, most moms will start to feel a bit  uncomfortable or fatigued during their session.

When is the best time of my pregnancy to schedule my Maternity session? 


Yes of course! This is your maternity session. I will guide you and suggest ideas about posing, looks, locations and props. If there is something you’ve seen that you’d like, please let me know.

Can I suggest ideas + props?

With the maternity/newborn combo you receive a discount off the newborn session.

Is there any advantage for me if I book newborn and maternity sessions together?

Best photo shoot experience I’ve ever had.

 I hate pics of myself and get super anxious about photoshoots, Sara was so nice and understanding and patient! She helped me feel at ease during the session and we even had fun! The photos came out amazing and gorgeous! I’m so so so so so happy with extra sprinkles! I highly recommend!
