A little bit about growing a Baby

I love babies. It's been my speciality for 14 years +. I (Jen) have birthed 4 beautiful babies who are now almost all grown. I have photographed my daughter just 2 days prior to giving birth to my first grandson and now I have 3 (soon to be 5) grand babies! I loved watching their bellies grow in anticipation of delivering a child. I am here to make you feel comfortable in your own body. It's not always easy as you grow but I believe we were created for birth these tiny humans. You can do it. So your session will be catered to what you want. Do you like the outdoors swinging your dress in the wind (don't worry I'll show you how to do that while you naturally laugh!)? Do you prefer a beautiful white space in front of a window and a big white bed? Sounds good to me. If you have a naturally lit home, we can come to you. We also have a gorgeous studio where we can use our white bed/window or a dark backdrop if your heart beats for classic and gorgeous. No matter where we choose to do your session, my goal is to make you forget you are a little clumsier, can't sleep well, and have extra worries of acne. I'll edit that to make you look and feel natural. Not fake. Natural. Think of me as your best friend just hanging out trying on clothes when you were a teenager. My goal is make you relax and feel gorgeous because you ARE!

Maternity Sessions are best done between 30-34 weeks of your pregnancy but we can flex if you just found us or if you feel like you are already very big and want to do this a little earlier. We have multiple dresses/gowns you can wear and we can customize your session using gowns or you can bring your own clothing. We have a stylized guide to help you choose the best outfit/s. We can include siblings and significant others in this session. We only do maternity sessions with our newborn clients. Please book both sessions and save when you book them together!

Preparing for Your Session

First pick out a dress/es that fit you well. I know this is a season where everything can seem like it doesn't quite fit or look amazing through your eyes. But trust us, you will cherish these images. So dig down for your confidence (and I will make sure you feel beautiful too) and pick out the best outfits. We have some you can borrow (ask us to send you the images/sizes). We also have a few suggestions: make sure they flow nicely, that you try them on 2 weeks prior and that you IRON them very well prior to getting in your car. When dresses flow, we can do a lot with that as you walk, swing around and show of that beautiful baby belly. Some of our favorite vendors are: Pinkblush, Lukalula, Baltic Born, ZeBuBeYou, Ivy City Co. (they have matchy matchy dresses for Moms/Little girls and these, among all others can be worn for your Newborn Session too!) and these long flexible dresses from Amazon that flow nicely!

We suggest adding accessories and getting your hair/make up done. Our goal is to provide you with both posed and natural images as a couple. You can add sibling/s to this session. Check out our Pinterest page for some amazing ideas on flow dresses and ideas/accessories to add to your session. As for your significant other, have them dress what is most comfortable (jeans or pants) and a nice top (no logo). We suggest a flowing dress for girls (we do have some sizes in the studio to use) and boys I suggest jeans and a solid top or sweater. If we are in the studio, we do barefoot so no need to figure out shoes.
