Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is such a significant time in your life to document. A woman’s body is capable of creating and carrying life for a very brief moment in time. I implore you, don’t miss the opportunity to preserve this miracle in photographs. I want your grandchildren to see the woman you are today, filled with the beauty and promise of new life.
I specialize in outdoor portraits at a location of your choice and am known for my stunning beach imagery, but I also offer gorgeous indoor portraits in my studio. Beaches and parks are always favorites, but I love urban locations too. For the most beautiful outdoor portraits I usually shoot one hour before sunset, when the light is soft and warm.
***Please check with me if you are vacationing in the St. Pete/Clearwater Area! Vacations are the perfect time to capture your pregnancy on one of our award winning Gulf Coast beaches!***
Best time to schedule
I suggest photographing maternity at 32 – 36 weeks along in your pregnancy. At this time you are still comfortable enough to enjoy the session and have fun, and your bump has usually developed nicely. Depending upon your schedule and mine we will choose the perfect time to showcase that beautiful baby bump!
I recommend contacting me a couple of months in advance, but I do save room in my schedule for those “last minute” sessions. When you book your session, I will link you to my contract which locks in your date and time. We will schedule an in person consultation so that you can choose and try on several of the 100+ designer maternity gowns in my collection. If you have any poses or ideas that you particularly wish to have included in your session, this is a good opportunity to show me your inspiration. I will do my best to accommodate your request. Sessions will typically last 60 to 90 minutes depending on location, number of outfits chosen and whether partner and/or children will be included. I especially enjoy beaches with our stunning Florida sunsets as well as some of our lush tropical parks. Urban maternity photography is also fun and can bring a unique look to your session. Some locations require a bit of travel, so keep that in mind when considering your schedule. Additionally, if professional hair and makeup services are required I work with a few and can make referrals. I do recommend it for in studio sessions.
