Documenting your body's gorgeous changing form and capturing your crew one last time as a family of three?
Done and done with a fun filled, child led maternity session.
Family Maternity Session
Your happy place is so very often the very best backdrop to document the story of this particular stage of your growing family.
There's something so special about beautiful images of your people in your most treasured and intimate space. It's hard to describe the nostalgia until you've experienced it firsthand.
Couples Maternity Session
Without kids in the picture (yet!), it's easy to begin the session at home, and then head out for a walk along the creek, arriving to the beach just at sunset to wrap things up.
We were able to incorporate the fur babies, do several outfit changes, and show off that bare bump for several of the photos, all in one session.
You're Going to Feel Beautiful!
I get it. Those other people are the "glowy" pregnant mamas and you couldn't feel anymore opposite right now. You're more exhausted than you've ever been. You feeling more like a whale by the day. The thought of participating in a maternity session sends you into a cold sweat. Finding an outfit that will fit your ever expanding bump and still look flattering seems like an impossible task.
I'm here to tell you that absolutely NONE of that is true. Maternity sessions with me are EMPOWERING. You're going to appreciate just how stunning you are . You're going to be so very glad you captured this fleeting stage. I promise. Don't let it pass you by.
GET YOUR GLOW ON!
Let's keep this whole thing easy, yeah?
Fill out the short contact form on my website and send it on over. I make it a goal to get back to you in one business day.
We'll schedule a brief phone call to spend a few moments getting to know each other better. I find this phone call make things all the more comfortable the day of the shoot.
I'll walk you through my process, which is purposely streamlined to be as simple as possible. I'll answer any questions or concerns. And of course, we'll get into the nitty gritty details of pricing.
1. Say Hello
2. Sign on the dotted line
You're ready to move forward-let's do this thing!
Once you're ready to book, reach out to me and we'll select a date/time. We'll talk locations and the best time of the day for flattering, soft lighting. I'll send over your contract and invoice for the non-refundable session fee. It's easy peasy-you can review/sign the contract and pay the invoice online with just a few clicks.
Your session date is now secured on my calendar!
I'll send over my Session Prep Guide that answers FAQ's. My goal is to answer any questions before you've even had a chance to think of them.
The Session Prep Guide includes advice on picking out both your and your family's wardrobe. It also includes some suggested color palettes to make things even easier.
I get it, picking out what to wear is hands down one of the most stressful parts! I'm here to help make it easier. Contact me if you need additional help beyond the guide.
The day has come! We meet at the agreed upon location-usually your home or a fabulous outdoor spot.
We've already chatted on the phone, so we kinda feel like good friends already.
I'll come prepared with plenty of prompts and shot ideas that will be oh so flattering. If you've got kiddos participating in the session, I have all sorts of tricks up my sleeve to make it fun and engaging for them and to capture your family's raw love and connection.
You get to just relax and enjoy yourself. No stressing about your kiddos-I've seen it all. Your job is to just keep smiling and love on your family.
4. let's shoot!
2-3 weeks after the session, I'll send over a your fully edited gallery slideshow for you to "ohh and ahhh" over. Prepare for some emotional moments!!
Now that you've fallen in love with your images, you have 3 days to decide which Package to purchase. Don't stress though-you're just choosing the package level immediately. Take your time selecting the individual images you'll keep forever as part of that package and spending your print credit.

The Session Fee covers my time and talent the day of the shoot and is non-refundable. Once you are presented with your gallery you choose your Package level-buy only what (and if) you love!
Oh my gosh - I am blown away!! I LOVE these pictures! To be honest, I didn’t feel very 'glowing' during this late-pregnancy phase, and I was in a big hassle getting our outfits planned & us out the door - but my goodness, these pictures don't show any of that, it's like magic! I can't get over these, I'm so happy! I cannot thank you enough; these are going to be cherished!
FAMILY MATERNITY SESSION
What an amazing experience getting to work with Kate! Making a woman feel comfortable in front of a camera at 39 weeks pregnant is quite a miracle, and Kate managed to not only make me feel totally at ease but also beautiful for our maternity shoot. Both my husband and I usually are so awkward in photos, but Kate's warm, confident, supportive demeanor made it so easy - it felt like just having a friend hanging out in our home! The photos turned out better than we could have ever imagined and we will cherish them for decades to come. I can't wait to have Kate back through the years to capture our family!
Couples Maternity session
Kate knew exactly how to cue every photo to have them look incredibly professional yet still allow me to feel comfortable for each shot. It's not always easy to feel beautiful when you are so pregnant but I have never felt so full of beauty until that shoot and especially seeing the images afterwards. She captured timeless photos that I will happily look back on for the years to come. I know it's easy to say this when you are happy with something but, I really cannot recommend Kate enough when it comes to maternity photos.
