Hello photography

Many of the expectant mothers I work with worry about the maternity clothes they will wear to their pregnancy photoshoot. 

I encourage my clients to wear whatever would make them feel the most beautiful during their session. However, if formal maternity clothes are the aesthetic they choose, they don’t even need to go shopping prior to the photoshoot.

I stock a wardrobe at my studio with maternity dresses and accessories of all styles that typically fit up to a size 16 pregnancy, with a few plus-size maternity gown options. Cleaned, sanitized, and stored in a way that upholds their elegance, each client may choose two different maternity dresses for their photoshoot.

Start your window shopping below to inspire your upcoming maternity photos. Mention the style numbers in your inquiry or reservation email to reserve those dresses for your photoshoot.
