Maternity Session- $350.00 a la carte *20% Retainer is due at the time of booking *30 minute session
$200.00 add on to any watch me grow package
Pregnancy is a time of excitement and I understand that you want to capture the anticipation of one of the most unforgettable moments of your life.
The pregnancy stage of a woman’s life is one of the fastest growing developmental times. You are growing a baby – yay you! I know it’s not always comfortable…the cramps, the bloating, the swelling…oh my, not feeling so amazing?! It’s ok. My job as a photographer is to make you look and feel amazing for just about an hour. Then you can throw your legs up and eat chocolate the rest of the day!
A maternity session is designed to celebrate and document the precious new life growing within. This is one of my favorite sessions as it is a combination of glamour, beautiful belly and romance.
When To Schedule: 30 to 32 weeks is perfect for most moms-to-be. This is a time frame where your beautiful belly is of ample size; yet you’re not as “puffy” and uncomfortable as you may be in your last 4 to 6 weeks.

Watch Me Grow- *$150 Retainer is due at the time of booking
Baby plans are ideal for parents who know from the very beginning that they want the first year of their baby’s life documented with professional photography. In most cases, the Watch me GROW! Baby Plans Package is chosen, contract signed and purchase complete before the new little one even enters the world. Crossing one (big) thing off the very busy parents’ to-do lists!
When you purchase a Watch Me GROW! Baby Plans you are purchasing a specific number of sessions and products/services. As such, these plans are usually scheduled based on the different stages of your baby’s development in the first year. The most common ‘stages’ are: maternity/expectation, newborn, sitting/crawling and 1-year/walking.
However, some parents prefer to schedule their sessions based on the baby’s age, rather than their developmental stage (i.e., at newborn, 3-months, 6-months, 9-months and a 1-year ) . . . and sometimes, we use a different formula entirely! It doesn’t matter when your baby’s sessions occur during the first year, but all Watch Me GROW! Baby Plans sessions must be completed by baby’s first birthday!
