Connecticut Maternity Photographer

View the maternity portfolio

After photographing so many expecting mothers over the past few years and having gone through the process myself, I've really come to value the intimate moments these moms-to-be experience. 

The rolling around, the sudden kick to the rib, the little hiccups.  These are all ways your little one is communicating with you as you rub them back and hum your favorite lullabies.

The journey to motherhood is hard but so incredible.  Our bodies are amazingly strong and our love for them is even stronger.

are you ready to capture your journey?

Why? Because each mom will have their hand held throughout the process.   You'll get a style guide, access to a client closet or rented gowns, and recommended vendors for hair and makeup.  Do you have a vision in mind? Let's chat over your current craving and talk about locations and more.

What is required to reserve a date for my maternity photoshoot?


No. 1

To book your maternity session, you will need to sign a contract and pay the retainer aka the creative fee.  The fee will depend on whether you are looking for a  one time full session ($350), or a membership ($700 for 4 sessions).  

When will we get our maternity photos back?

No. 2

I try to deliver your photos to you within 4 weeks of your session.  For my maternity sessions, I place an urgency on delivering since babies can come at any moment.  

How many edited photos will we receive after my maternity session?

No. 3

You get to purchase and select your digital images after viewing your gallery. You can opt to purchase 8, 20, 30 or all images.  

Do you offer matted prints or albums?

No. 4

Absolutely!  The labs I work with only produce the most stunning pieces of art that are meant to last for generations.   

Can I also book a newborn session and other milestone sessions?

No. 5

Most definitely.  In fact, if you join my membership, you can save $700 AND you get a $200 print credit after each session instead of just a $100 print credit from booking one session.  

What if we need to reschedule my maternity photo shoot?

No. 6

I get it! Sometimes we need flexibility.  You are welcome to reschedule as long as it's greater than 7 days of your photoshoot. 

I have so many more questions!
