Ladies, when you find out you’re pregnant, there are a rush of emotions. Of course there’s the:

Yay! I’m going to be the mom! My dreams are coming true.

I can’t wait to see what he or she looks like.


 But there’s also the fear:

Will I be a good mom?

Can I do this?

Oh my…childbirth…it’s happening to me…

These are feelings that are of course totally normal, and you’re not alone. Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, and I love to capture your glow, your loveliness. Capture those moments, those memories for a lifetime to come. When your child is walking across the stage at his or her high school graduation, you can look back on pictures of your little one and remember what it was like to hold them as a newborn. You can look at your maternity pictures and remember the little kicks and somersaults in your stomach. Ah, the circle of life!

When looking for a photographer for your maternity and newborn pictures, do you want to imitate photos like Beyonce´or do you want something more classic? If you’re looking for beautiful, professional, and breathtaking photos you’d be proud to share with family and friends, contact me. Some people might call Beyonce’s photoshoot “art”, but as a professional photographer, I see so much that could have been changed. Is that a funeral arrangement of flowers behind her? Why the fake sky backdrop when you’re shooting outside? So many questions. EVERYONE can take pictures, but not everyone can create portraits.  If your friend says, “Hey I have a camera and some props laying around, I can take your maternity photos.” Politely decline and call a pro.

I can assure you that when we shoot your maternity pictures, you will feel comfortable, confident, and stunning, and will not be subjected to sitting on top of a car or kneeling on fake turf. You should feel natural and beautiful in your pictures, and we will work together to determine the kind of shots you want and capture the moments you can look back on fondly. Your photos will be high quality and an investment well spent. You can cut corners on toilet paper or generic orange juice, but you don’t want to cut corners when it comes to your photography.

“Babies are like little suns that, in a magical way, bring warmth, happiness and light into our lives.”
-Kartini Diapari-Oengider

Capture the magic, the love and the happiness a child brings into your life. Give us a call today to schedule your maternity and newborn photo sessions!
