for your maternity session, your ease and comfort are of the utmost importance to us. Whether in studio or outdoors, it is such a special treat for us to photograph these first moments of love blossoming between you and your little one. we know swollen feet and achy backs can make this time feel less than romantic, but we're here to direct you every step of the way so you don't miss out on saving this moment.
from the moment your bump starts to grow to those first flutters and kicks, pregnancy is such a special time. your little one growing just underneath your heart, comforted by your deep breaths and steady heartbeats. even with all the aches and growing pains, there is so much joy to capture in this season.
your little one growing just underneath your heart...
