A pregnancy shoot is a special event.
From celebrating your literally miraculous body, to treating yourself to something fun and luxurious, to creating timeless heirloom to pass onto your child.
When I was pregnant in my third trimester, I was just so completely exhausted, that the thought of standing for more than 5 minutes at a time for something as "unnecessary" as a pregnancy photos was the absolute last thing I wanted to do.
A dear photographer friend, after many attempts, convinced me to let him take my photo. I was so not into it and so tired, I didn't even wash my hair for the shoot. While I am so grateful for the images we did get, I still wish that I had pushed myself a little bit to capture those fleeting, sacred moments in time.
Each session includes 1-1.5 hours of shooting time, and can be shot outdoors on location, in studio, or possibly in your home.
Included in your Session:
Consultation and Unique Look and Session

As your shoot approaches, you will receive guidance on how to look and feel your best when the day arrives! You will receive tips to prepare physically, as well as information that will set any nerves at ease!
