A maternity session, which will center primarily around the expectant mother but may also include immediate family members such as a partner/spouse, older siblings, etc. (up to 5 subjects total; $10 per additional subject), typically lasts 60-90 minutes.  We will work together to choose a location that best represents you and your desired session style (posed studio, outdoors, in-home lifestyle, etc).  A $100 creative fee is due at the time of booking; this secures your session date/time and provides you with a fully customized portrait session, digital handcrafting/editing of your session proofs, and 1-2 watermarked images for "tagging" and sharing online.  Professional prints and other items may be purchased separately after your session.

Maternity sessions are best done early in the 3rd trimester, usually between 28-34 weeks.  In general, this is the time when the baby bump is showing nicely, but isn't so big that it causes physical limitations for the mother.  Because maternity sessions can only be shot during a narrow window of time, it is essential that you arrange your session in advance.
