Your Memories Deserve To Be Printed

Your experience is customized to fit your family and their wants. From helping choose the perfect outfit color palette, to having dresses available for all of my clients to use, you can be as hands-off (or as involved!) as you would like while planning your session. 

Your family photo session will be filled with laughter, horrible dad jokes, and me most likely tripping over a stick or gopher hole (it’s almost guaranteed at this point, ha!). Even the grumpiest dads end up having a great time running around the mountain or beach acting like a kid again. You and your family will leave your session having a blast, and a probably little bit dirtier than you had arrived.

Your customized experience does not end with your session. Getting together a week later to relive all of the smiles, we sit down and go through your images. Hand selecting what images speak to you the most, making sure you only receive the images you love. Creating your family album or a statement piece for your home ensures you get to enjoy those memories with your family all year round, instead of them collecting digital dust on your phone or a hard drive somewhere. 

Printing your images, walking by your photo on the wall each day brings joy to our lives – and has been shown to raise children’s self confidence! As your San Diego family photographer, I walk you through finding the perfect pieces for your family so you can have museum-quality artwork of your images to enjoy every day.

The Process

1. Say Hello

Are you looking for a stress-free, amazing experience for your maternity portraits? Knowing the best locations for your photos, providing a client wardrobe with a range of casual to formal gowns for you to utilize, and making memories that will last lifetimes. Maternity sessions are typically around the 30-32 weeks pregnant mark, so make sure you schedule well before then.

Send me a message below, and I will reach out within 24 hours!

2. Your Planning Appointment

Your planning appointment is where we go over all of the details – from going through products and wall art options, to discussing what location is best for your upcoming maternity photo session.

I will walk you through what kind of oufits and color palettes look best for any specific location you are intersted in, and any dresses from my client closet that are perfect for you.

Once we have gone over what to expect throughout the experience, we will sign the contract, pay the session fee, and schedule your session date. Remember, maternity sessions are typically around the 30-32 weeks pregnant mark. There is nothing more for you to do but look forward to your photo session! <3

3. Your Session

It’s finally here – your maternity photo session! We will meet at your location about an hour before the sun sets or at sunrise, the best timing for gorgeous light.

Don’t worry about knowing how to pose – I have you covered. You are going to feel a bit awkward with some of the directions I give, but I promise you it will lead to beautiful images!

Maternity photo sessions typically last around 40-60 minutes, plenty of time to capture your growing family.

4. The Reveal & Ordering Appointment

1-2 weeks after your maternity photo session, we will get together, whether at a local coffee shop, in the comfort of your own home or via ZOOM call, and enjoy the big reveal!

We will view your images through a slideshow, reliving all of the laughs and memories from your personalized session. Afterwards, I will help you narrow down the images into the ones you truly love & can’t live without. Figuring out the best way to display your images is the fun part! Going through each product, you will decide what works best for you so you can cherish these images.

After you have decided which images and artwork you love, I take care of the rest for you. Just sit back and enjoy the last few months of your pregnancy, and you will have gorgeous heirlooms displaying your images hand delivered to your door.

As your San Diego maternity photographer, I am thrilled to capture this special moment for you and your family. The feeling of your little one kicking and moving all around, and those late night hiccups all from inside your belly. That memory of being so close to your brand new baby while carrying them for 9 months is captured in your images to relive decades later.

Being an experienced San Diego maternity photographer, I love that I am able to offer you my client closet filled with maternity gowns for photoshoots! My gowns are designed specifically for maternity sessions by trusted creators in the photography industry, and are for my clients to use if they please. Don’t worry, it is not a requirement to use one of my gowns. They are here if you don’t want to worry about finding an outfit for your session. The best part is that they can be used not just for maternity sessions, but also newborn, family and professional/branding sessions that I offer.
