Maternity Sessions

Maternity Sessions

Not Your Typical Maternity Session

The best photographs convey emotion, and my goal is to capture the emotions associated with welcoming a new child into the world! I’ll give you prompts to get you thinking about the different aspects of parenthood to hopefully elicit a range of feelings from pure love and expectation to laughter and joy, and even some of the more somber feelings that accompany this season in many women’s lives. 

If your partner and/or other children are also participating in the session, I highly encourage them to act as they “normally” do – this means playing, being affectionate, and genuinely interacting with you and each other. I truly believe that there is an innate beauty in our familial connections, and the photos from those moments are usually my favorite of the session.

The ideal time to schedule a maternity session is between 32 and 35 weeks of pregnancy, but sessions outside that timeframe are possible as well depending on your comfort level. 

*Due to the current Covid-19 outbreak, maternity sessions will only be offered outdoors in the convenience of your own yard, or your choice of nearby outdoor locations.

Maternity Sessions; On Location or In-Home

Maternity sessions are offered in two different options – on-location, or in-home*. (Please see Covid-19 update above)

On-location maternity photo sessions are a bit more styled and typically include a longer portion of directed posing. These sessions take place at your choice of nearby locations, and we’ll work together to decide the best one for you based on your family’s lifestyle and aesthetic.

Additional info and images from recent on-location maternity sessions can be found here.

In-home lifestyle maternity photo sessions are offered in the comfort of your own home and are much more casual. Many clients choose to do at least a portion of their lifestyle session with a bare belly. This is a great option for either just parents or parents with children.

No special cleaning or prepwork is needed for an in-home session! My camera will only show what we want it to, so there’s no need to worry about mess or clutter.

Session Length

Maternity sessions featuring just mama or mama with a spouse/partner and one or two outfits changes typically last about 45 minutes to 1 hour. If we’re including siblings, grandparents, or multiple outfit changes, the session may last a bit longer.

​Your Custom Session

We’ll work together to create a custom session tailored to your needs. Whether you’re looking for an empowering image to privately remember the beautiful state of your body, or something a bit more glam to showcase and celebrate the arrival of your new addition, we’ll create the perfect session to fit your vision.

Testimonials

Allison is amazing! She worked so well with us and our 3 small kiddos. LOVE her style and she is very easy to work with.

- Susan

Allison is a fabulous photographer and genuinely wonderful person! She captured such beautiful photos of me for my maternity photoshoot. I haven't been a particularly gushy mom-to-be, but these photos make me feel so beautiful and highlight this very special moment in my life. I would absolutely recommend her! Thank you, Allison!

- Mary

Allison photographed my maternity pictures and our newborn pictures and was amazing for both! She was always in touch with us throughout the whole process and was easy to get a hold of and flexible with scheduling when our crazy life got in the way! She was kind, considerate and respectful in our home, which is always comforting when you’re inviting someone in to take pictures in your house, and I never felt judged for my piles of papers and (clean) clothes everywhere! On top of all this, her pictures were beautiful! Our toddler was NOT easy either time and Allison never got frustrated or agitated, she went with the flow and was so calm - way more calm than I was! - and she was able to capture pictures of our daughter actually smiling! I was hesitant to take maternity pictures, but I am so glad I did with Allison!
