It is generally recommended to plan your maternity photography session in the late second or early third trimester, around 30-34 weeks, when the tummy is nice and round. You want to be clearly showing but still feel comfortable enough to enjoy the process. Earlier than that and the belly may not be prominent enough, later than that and you may feel uncomfortable. But every woman and every pregnancy is different, so listening to your body is always a good idea!
For our expecting clients, we have a full wardrobe of various maternity gowns, tutus and other outfits that you can choose from. All portraits are respectfully photographed in good taste, and nudity is always optional and discreet. Brittney will make sure that you are comfortable with the various poses and each session is tailored towards your individual needs.
Studio Maternity Sessions can take place any time of day. During a studio session, I can control my lighting with studio lights. Studio maternity sessions are ideal for moms only, however significant others can be included as well. We have many different backdrops to choose from to customize your look along with over 30 gowns at your finger tips!
Outdoor Maternity Sessions take place at sunset. The golden hour – that pocket of time just before sunset – produces some of the most gorgeous light ever. Golden light is soft, warm and dimensional. A gorgeous natural field is the perfect paired with our golden light!

For Men we suggest solid and simple clothing but colors are dependent on which gowns are chosen by mama to be. I recommend choosing clothing that they would normally wear so that they are comfortable during the session as well. The idea is to create classic, simply portraits that will last a lifetime!
