Maternity is the number one session I always hear, “Oh I wish I had done that!” when I take newborn photos. I know most moms may not feel their best or super photogenic at this point in their pregnancy. But, this is such a beautiful time to capture your growing belly and celebrate getting to meet your new little one soon!
The best time to schedule your maternity session is between 30-34wks, when your belly is round and you still feel comfortable to walk around. I offer a small maternity gown collection where you can select 1-2 dresses of your liking. You can also wear an outfit of your own, a dress, casual outfit, or even get more intimate in studio. You can include your partner and if you have other children. The great part of a maternity session is you can do it outside all year long. Not only are parks and beaches super pretty, but even a snowy landscape is so magical! Also, now that I moved into a larger studio, I can book maternity session inside.
So…Did you decide on wearing a beautiful maternity gown?! I’ve got you!
I offer a small collection of maternity gowns you can choose from to wear during your maternity session (see below). We can setup a time for you to try the ones you like on and narrow it down to the best one. Not loving any of them, no worries. There is also a wonderful company you can rent a maternity gown from called Rainey’s Closet. The best part is I get a photographers discount! If you like any of them, let me know and I can tell you the discount. I can rent it and get it in time for your session. Just click on the image below to see what they have!
“Jen is amazing! She photographed both my maternity and my daughter’s newborn photos. We wanted a more natural maternity/family shoot, and our 3 year old son was not having his picture taken that day! Jen was so patient and understanding. Not to mention the fact the pictures were awesome! We also loved our daughter’s pictures, and she was able to get some great shots of our little family with our new addition. I’d highly recommend her!”
“Jen was super patient with us when we were all over the place trying to pick a spot for our maturity shoot. The end result was absolutely phenomenal. I never have glamor shots or anything like that done but I really wanted to capture the moment knowing it was once in a lifetime for us. She offered great instructions and was so helpful with poses. Even though I was an absolute Mac truck at the time I felt great and were so happy with the photos. We’ve continued using Jen since the twins were born. She did our newborn shoot, Christmas and Easter so far. More to come! We would definitely recommend Jen!”
