I visited my hometown, Tallahassee, last year for the first time in many years. I was visiting for an old friend from high school’s baby shower. While I was there I took photos of another friend and her new baby...

My philosophy for maternity photo poses is the focus should be on relationship. Relationship between parents and with the new baby. If there are siblings, they can be included too! Here is a sweet maternity session with a new brother and here is one with multiple siblings.
I get this question all the time from couples looking to have maternity photos taken.
My goal is to make the photography process as pleasant as possible. I don’t expect you to know how to pose and will guide you through the whole process ensuring you have natural looking and feeling photos that are flattering and lovely.
I have a beautiful wardrobe available for clients who reserve full sessions. The wardrobe includes lovely dresses for moms, outfits for kids and shirts for dads. If you’ve reserved a full session, you’re more than welcome to change halfway through. With that being said, once we get on location, there isn’t a great spot to change. Most people change in their car.
The focus of the session is you and the people you love. The photos are about celebrating the baby that is coming not featuring products. I want all the photos we take to be towards that end. With that being said, if you have a little sweater or onesie or shoes that you’d like to include in a couple photos, by all means bring them! We can take a couple with them. But don’t think you need props to make memorable photos. The memories are with each other not with the things.
My greatest hope is for your photos to live on your walls and albums for years to come.
