It is amazing how strong your love can be for someone you have yet to meet.  It’s a short but beautiful time in a mother’s life, and my maternity sessions aim to capture that love between you, your family, and your soon-to-be newborn baby in a beautiful and natural way.


Maternity sessions can be photographed at my gorgeous, newly-built Lino Lakes studio, or they can photographed outdoors.  They are typically scheduled between 28 and 34 weeks, where your bump will be showing but you’re still comfortable.   Both parents as well as any older siblings are welcome to be part of your session.


Maternity clients have the option of using anything from my curated studio wardrobe, which includes a variety of beautiful silk and cotton gowns, skirts, robes, caftans and more.  Don’t see exactly what you’re looking for?   Let me know and we can work out a custom gown purchase.  Hair and makeup can be added to any maternity session.
