When you are expecting a baby, nine months of maternity can seem like a long time. The anticipation of a baby is so exciting, and although it doesn’t seem like it, with the blink of an eye your baby will be here. You will hold their teeny body in your arms and marvel at how just a short time ago they were curled up just like that in your belly. Their elbows and knees poking you. Their hiccups. Their flips and turns late in the night. Pregnancy is so precious and deserves to be documented, not only for you to remember but for that little baby of yours to see where it all began as they grow up and ask lots of questions about the time they were in Mommy’s belly.

My style is natural and artistic. I strive to create photographs that are unique, warm and classic. I like clean lines, simplicity and I am guided by beautiful light. Becoming a mother is such a significant time and I am honoured to capture this intimate and special time for you. I have a studio wardrobe full of neutral pieces that you can choose to use during your session.

Session Details:

It’s best to schedule your maternity session between 32 and 35 weeks. By this stage you have a nice round baby bump to photograph and you are still comfortable enough to move around during the session.

Within two weeks you will receive an online gallery with your images for downloading and sharing. You can order prints, canvases and wall displays right from your gallery. I appreciate that many families wish to have their digital images to store and cherish forever. This is why I offer all inclusive photo sessions. All my prices include the edited high resolution images captured during your session in both colour and black + white.

I encourage you to inquire about your session as soon as possible so I can schedule you in.

Add-on Maternity Session  | $300 | 
Add a custom portrait session maternity session to your newborn booking. This session is focused on the mama-to-be but can include your partner and baby’s siblings.

  • 45-minute maternity session in-studio (year-round) or outdoors (May-October)
  • 1-2 outfit changes
  • Access to online gallery to download and share your images
  • Use of the studio wardrobe should you choose
  • Print release

Just Maternity Session  | $450 | 
If you wish to book just the maternity session (without a newborn booking) price is $450.

I offer weekend maternity sessions when I am available, but because my weekends are in such high demand, I do charge an additional weekend fee of $50.  Therefore, Saturday and Sunday sessions will have an additional $50 fee on top of the listed session price.
