Whether you are a first-time mother or expecting your second or third child, we offer vibrant and creative photo sessions that highlight your natural beauty and maternal glow. With a variety of settings, poses, and styles, we strive to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience that captures the essence of your unique journey to motherhood.

What to expect!

We suggest booking your maternity session between 28 and 34 weeks. While we do have an indoor studio to accommodate those who want to go that route, a large majority of our sessions are done outdoors at a variety of parks in the St. Louis and Southern Illinois areas. Based on any preferences you might have (water shots, trees, fields, etc) we'll be able to determine the best location for your photos! Typically it takes about 1-2 weeks for you to receive a link in your email to your finished gallery. There you'll be able to make your final selections as well as have the opportunity to purchase extra digital images if you just can't make up your mind!
