The Maternity Experience

Pregnancy is a beautiful season, a time in life that should absolutely documented. Your maternity photos freeze this time of sweet anticipation of what's to come, and will one day bring you right back to those wondrous weeks of eagerly awaiting your precious arrival.

Your Maternity Photos Will Be a Cherished Gift For Your Child One Day.

Like what you see? Let's chat! Contact me for detailed pricing information and availability. I book a limited number of sessions per month, and typically book out a few months in advance, so reaching out early is recommended. 

Once I receive your inquiry, I'll send you a detailed pricing guide, and we can chat about whether a single session or our First Year Collective is right for you. Once you book with me, I'll mail you a welcome package with info on how to prepare for your session(s)!

1. Say Hello

We'll plan your session for sometime between 28-34 weeks, when you have a nicely defined bump but are still moving around comfortably. Maternity sessions take place either in my studio or at a local park at sunset for the most beautiful, flattering light. If we face inclement weather, we can always reschedule. I prefer not to photograph babies and young children outdoors when it's below 50 degrees. Bonus: it's always sunny and warm in the studio! 

2. Schedule it

For every session, I want you to look and feel your best! I have a growing collection of dresses in my studio wardrobe that you are welcome to borrow for your session. I also provide wardrobe options for dads and babies from 0-12 months old.

And I can recommend a hair and makeup artist who can come to your home beforehand so you can feel pampered and prepared.

I'll also help with styling guidance for the rest of the family as well so everyone looks and feels pulled together and beautiful!

3. Planning it

Before your session, I'll send you a short list of tips to prepare. And on session day, it's your job to simply love on your family, and let me take care of the rest!

4. Your Session

Within two weeks of your session, your private online gallery will be ready for viewing! You'll purchase the digital image collection that best suits your needs. Then you can choose to add on luxurious heirloom albums, gorgeous framed fine art prints, gifts for grandparents, and more! (First Year Collective members save on their digital images!)

My husband and I were on the fence about maternity photos but people kept telling us we might regret not having those memories captured so we decided to take the plunge...and WOW! We are so glad we did. Not only did we book her for maternity, but after seeing her work and having such an excellent experience, we decided to book newborn, 6mo, and 12mo session, too! I am pretty positive that we now have a photographer for the duration. Best money we ever spent.



Christy has a very easy way with children and babies, and her aesthetic is elegant and soft. Her customer service and communication with clients is always personalized and kind. I would highly recommend her and the studio for babies and family photography.



Christy epitomizes what a newborn/family photographer should be. She is easygoing, adaptable, energetic, and most importantly, a pure joy to work with. Additionally, the quality of products that Christy offers are phenomenal, from small prints to large canvases. I highly recommend Christy!
