Maternity Photography

Maternity Portraits are incredible to have.  Professional maternity photography documents the strength, beauty and fierceness of the female body. Every woman’s journey through pregnancy is unique and glorious in it’s own right and should be recorded for all time.

It warms my heart to photograph a woman who is pregnant. I didn’t have professional portraits done when I was pregnant, didn’t have a lot of money and honestly, I couldn’t see spending so much on pictures. What a pity. That and the absence of birth photography is my greatest regret. Even 7 years later I still lament not having professional maternity photography. Therefore, I  try to make it as affordable as possible.

This 4 time momma (this will be her 4th!) came into my North Hollywood studio for a maternity mini session and brought her whole family. This is perfect as they got to celebrate with her. The vitality of motherhood never ceases to amaze me.

If you would like to know where I got her amazing sage colored dress, see Chicaboo! I purchase quite a few beautiful dresses for maternity shoots from this company. They have a wonderful vibe and fit most all shapes and sizes. The chiffon material that waves so elegantly is from Silk Fairies.
