What to Expect When You’re Expecting

Catchy title, huh? Has anyone else read this book? Back in the 1990s and early 2000 it was literally the expectant moms’ bible!

I would read it every week and it would take me through how big the baby was and what was developing that week, etc. Remember this was pre world wide web and everything under the sun wasn’t at my fingertips!

Expectant moms are inundated with info now! Which is a wonderful thing!

DC Maternity Photography Session Options

One thing hasn’t changed over the years – moms still want to document this amazing time in their family’s life.

And that’s where I come in! I offer several options for a maternity session add-on. Lifestyle Maternity Sessions can be done in your home or outdoors.

And the best part, the session can include your kids, spouse and furry family members!

Benefits of At-home Sessions

Where are you and your family most comfortable? At home! So why not have your maternity session there?

I love incorporating the nursery in at-home sessions. We can highlight a special item you purchased for the baby or the decor you picked out just for them.

Still not convinced? Read my blog post on the benefits of an at-home session!

Outdoor Maternity Sessions

Outdoor Maternity Sessions are probably your more traditional maternity session – beautiful dresses with a gorgeous natural backdrop!

Many of my clients want an outdoor maternity session because they LOVE being outdoors! They want to capture the season in the pictures – fall leaves or gorgeous spring flowers.

And I have to say there is something special when that sun hits that baby bump! I swoon every single time!

What’s best?

Honestly, there isn’t a “best”! Both options are the perfect way to capture your bump – it really comes down to which you prefer!

During your pre-session consult we can discuss the options and I can help you choose the location that’s right for you and your family!
