Connecticut Maternity Photography

Custom maternity photography is like no other type of photography.

It is very special and requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with you, capturing the story of your baby’s arrival. Your photos will be cherished memories forever and heirlooms to future generations. I have been trained in the art of maternity posing. This has given me extensive knowledge on flattering poses and angles. I will work closely with you from start to finish to create images you will love.  There is nothing more beautiful than the pregnant form!

Capture the beautiful glow of pregnancy and the joy you are feeling with a custom maternity photography session.  The studio closet is full of beautiful skirts and gowns that will flatter your shape and will show off your perfect bump. View a sample maternity session.


Your experience begins with a pre-session consultation either on the phone or through email. This is when you will be able to choose from an indoor or outdoor maternity session.  We will also set up a day and time that works best for you to come into the studio to review wardrobe and styling.  We will also go over tips for making dad and other children feel comfortable throughout the session. I will then get to work behind the scenes, bringing your vision to life.

Maternity portraits are best scheduled between 28-34 weeks. Sessions last approximately 60 minutes allowing time for multiple outfit changes and short breaks as needed. This is an experience for you to remember and look back on and smile. For more information please read my Maternity Session Details page and fill out my contact form.
