Giving You A Time To Remember

I understand the feeling of time passing and the preciousness of these years for your family. My first maternity photos, I took myself while pregnant with my first son. I found it to be a great experience to have those images but felt I missed a chance to pamper myself during a stage in my life where I needed it the most.

It’s my goal to give you a process that aligns with your voice and gives you the best possible standard of professional photography and session, so you have an empowered experience that honors this moment, while allowing you to step into this precious time, with images that bring you and your family right back no matter how many years have passed.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO MY MATERNITY SESSION?

I recommend doing your maternity session when you're within 30-36 weeks pregnant. At this stage in your pregnancy your bump is usually really nice and round and you still have the energy to do the poses .I usually only book them Monday to Friday. However, sometimes I have Saturdays available at an extra cost of $100. All maternity sessions start at 11am. I only ever book one session a day so the day is yours and there is no rushing you at all.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The session fee is $150. This fee secures your booking and is deducted from the package you choose to buy after your session. The session fee is non-refundable. I have 3 packages and they all include digital images you have selected with a print release. Please refer to the pricing page for more details on the packages.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANY PROPS, OUTFITS OR ACCESSORIES TO MY MATERNITY SESSION?

I have a range of outfits,  props and accessories for your session. However if you have something special or of sentimental value that you would want me to include in your photos, please bring them along!​ You will also need to come with a strapless bra and get your hair and makeup done.
