For the best images, maternity sessions should take place during the third trimester, ideally between the 32nd and 36th weeks. The session is all about celebrating mom and the magic of pregnancy! I aim to make all moms-to-be comfortable and confident throughout the session, capturing the excitement of having a new baby on the way :)
If you would like images showing your bare belly, please avoid pants with elastic (can be difficult, I know!) for a few hours before your session and arrive in loose fitting clothing. Bring plenty of clothing that makes you feel fabulous-- if needed I am happy to help with final clothing selections.
I am a fly on the wall during your birth-- quietly and discretely preserving the moments of your child's entry into the world. I take a photojournalistic approach to births, tastefully documenting the event with no posing and using only available light. Occasionally I may need to open the blinds a smidge or move a lamp, but only with mom's permission. The comfort and safety of mom and baby as well as the ability of the medical personnel to do their jobs are my number one priority. Please check with your delivering doctor/midwife and hospital or birth center before scheduling your birth session.
