Featuring a feminine, upscale style that captures the magic of your story. I photograph you or your baby in flattering poses and a fine-art style that shows you to your best but still looks like you and not fake.
Each of my photos has a unique, magical, fantasy feeling to it. Dresses and wings are provided for these photo sessions if you want them, as well as handcrafted props to make your photos truly custom and unique.
For expecting mothers pregnancy can feel like it lasts forever, but it's really only a short 40 weeks! There is no better way to remember your baby bump and this incredible journey to motherhood than with a gorgeous professional maternity photo shoot.
Motherhood is a beautiful experience and every mother-to-be deserves to feel completely pampered and entirely beautiful during the course of her pregnancy. Get all dolled up at my studio for the most feminine and elegant photos you've ever had of yourself. I provide couture gowns and recommend a makeup artist for every photo shoot. Past clients have said that they felt the most glamorous and feminine they've ever been at their photoshoot. That pregnancy glow is a real thing and thicker hair always looks amazing on everyone!
Choosing the right time for your session is important. If we photographer too early, your bump won't be as pronounced, but too late and you may not be as comfortable on your feet and getting around. REALLY late and you run the risk of delivering your new baby before you have your motherhood portraits done! You'll want to book as much in advance as you can, but the actual session date should take place when you're between 28-32 weeks pregnant.
you will have images you will cherish forever!"
"I was 8 months pregnant with my son when Heather and I worked together for a maternity session. From start to finish, it was a beautiful experience. She made me feel so confident and has a way of putting you at ease. I felt gorgeous and was even more pleased when we got the photos. I highly recommend her for maternity photography...

The first few weeks of your baby's life go by in a blur of sleep deprivation and midnight feedings, and you'll soon forget the tiny fingers, peeling skin, and curled feet of the true newborn stage. I pose your baby safely in poses that make the most of their natural curliness leftover from the womb.
Once you deliver, that new baby smell only lasts so long, and so does the tiny baby stage. There are so many emotions attached to welcoming and embracing your newborn baby! They're only this tiny once, and it goes by so fast, only a matter of weeks! Professional newborn photos are the best way to remember how small and curly they were.
Pregnancy term is about 38-41 weeks, so if you go into labor early you may miss scheduling if you haven't booked already. You should book your newborn photos for about a week after your due date and we'll adjust things from there when your baby actually arrives. Most expectant mothers book with me when they are around 15-20 weeks along. The newborn session will take pace when baby is between 6-12 days old. It's a magical time when the baby will sleep through almost anything, so we can get those curly womb pictures!
I accept just 3 newborn sessions a month to allow for time enough for sessions and varying client childbirth dates.
Here is the Fairyography guide to having a stress-free pregnancy photography experience.
It’s best if the baby crashes when you arrive at my studio because a sleepy baby can be posed safely.
