This is such an exciting time for you and your family -- As an expecting mama, you’ll remember what those little butterfly flutters and kicks feel like. Dad will remember the feeling of love and excitement as your little one’s arrival gets closer and closer. Maternity sessions are a wonderful opportunity to document that beautiful bump and something to look back on together as a family when baby arrives. Maternity sessions are typically photographed between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy. For mamas of twins, sometime in the second trimester would be perfect for a maternity session.
As you scroll through my portfolio, you’ll notice my work is genuine; nothing forced here. I want to capture your family truly as you are. You may also notice I showcase my work a little differently as well. Instead of a curated portfolio, I like to show the variety I provide in a single portrait session. My hope is that you will fall in love with these families and the idea of capturing your family just as you are as well.
