“Thanks again for the beautiful maternity photos.  You’re an amazing talent, and we can’t wait to see you again when our baby is here.  Everyone raved about our gorgeous prints and album!  So excited we found you.”



We rely on beautiful, natural light and unposed composition to capture the growing connection between a mother and her child.  Our maternity photography sessions never involve hokey props or contrived posing.  Instead we will document the natural beauty and anticipation of a new life.

There is nothing more pure, or more powerful, than the intense bond that exists between a mother and her developing child.  Every image we create for our expectant mothers captures the tender, yet fierce, love that makes this bond so unique.



Through our maternity portraits we create a photographic diary of your journey into motherhood.  

And someday, your children will look back at your portraits and not only SEE, but FEEL the intense love and emotion that existed as they grew within you.




A maternity photo session with us is all about you and your growing baby.  Of course, Dad and siblings are welcome as well.

A complimentary mini maternity photo session is available with the purchase of The First Year Collective, a photo journal of your baby’s first year.  We also offer a maternity/newborn bundle collection for clients who prefer to document their pregnancy and newborn only.

Our maternity photography sessions fill up quickly.  To ensure availability, a maternity session should be booked at the beginning of your second trimester.  Maternity sessions are typically completed between the 28th and 35th week of pregnancy.  $125 reserves your spot on our maternity photography calendar.

Maternity sessions are done indoors (in your home) or outdoors at some of our favorite Chicago and Barrington, IL locations and several other surrounding areas.
