Whether it is your first or third… pregnancy is a magical experience. I know many expecting mothers may be hesitant to get in front of the camera as their body changes, but I promise to work with you to help you feel beautiful, womanly and capture the happiness in your heart as you are waiting to welcome your baby. Many mothers I work with have expressed how happy are that they took the opportunity to document this special time in their life.  Your maternity images are something you’ll be able look back at fondly and share with your child as part of their birth story.

I recommend taking maternity photos 4-5 weeks prior to your due date.

Depending on your preference, I offer maternity sessions either in the comfort and privacy of my Des Moines studio or outdoors at several locations in and around the Des Moines area. I do shoot outdoors throughout all seasons!

One of the most frequent questions I receive regarding maternity sessions is styling… Of course you are welcome to bring your own wardrobe to your maternity session.  In addition, I offer clients the access to my client closet of maternity gowns.  You may try on and wear any of the gowns that I own and keep available in my studio for client use. 

Recommendations are available for professional hair and makeup.
