Luxury Maternity Photography Session

When you’re looking to reserve a Maternity photography session, there’s nothing more iconic than a beachside maternity photoshoot, especially with a lighthouse in the background. This family maternity photoshoot at the beach is a beautiful example of how to blend the coast with refined luxury with wardrobe.

The perfect blend for a Maternity Photography Session

Mom is absolutely stunning in her flowy, off the shoulder light blue dress, Dad looks great in the linen suit & I can’t express enough just how cute Little Man is in his button down and bow tie!

Time flies when you’re expecting baby number two and you’re chasing after baby number one

When you’re expecting your first, SO much of your time is spent preparing yourself & your home for the arrival of your precious baby. But what happens when you’re expecting your second? You’re already so busy with your oldest, the time flies by at warp speed.

As a mom myself, I totally get it. This season of life is a bit of a blur of sleepless nights, long days, and piles of things everywhere.

What month of pregnancy should you take maternity photos?

As your friendly photographer, here’s a tip to keep in your back pocket for when/if the time comes: When you find out you’re expecting, set a reminder at the start of the second trimester to book your maternity session. And when the reminder date rolls around, reach out to your photographer! Get that task off the to-do list, and while you’re at it, you might as well reserve the newborn session, too!

Maternity photography sessions typically take place between 28-32 weeks. By reserving your session at the start the second semester, you give yourself plenty of time to plan the maternity session of your dreams.

During this busy season of life, don’t forget to document the milestones that make up the path you’re creating together.

I know firsthand how daunting it can be at times to just get out of the house with little ones, let alone try to coordinate a professional photoshoot for family portraits. That’s where I am here to help! When families reserve portraits with me, they can rest assured knowing that I have all of the details of their Maternity photography session are taken care of for them. 

& everything in between. 

My goal as a Photographer is to alleviate the stressors around maternity and family photos and rebrand professional portraits as a luxurious, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.
