I wasn’t going to do maternity photos, but I am so incredibly glad I did… It was such a nice time to connect with baby. When I received the photos I cried because I was so shocked at how Ariel captured how much I already love this baby girl. Ariel has an incredible maternity wardrobe so I didn’t have to worry about buying different outfits for the shoot. It was so easy and she made me feel so comfortable. Ariel is the absolute best and has given me so much joy by providing these images!

Your maternity session may just be the easiest part of your pregnancy.

Your maternity session is designed to be simple and convenient – not a big production.

Your session includes access to the studio wardrobe collection - full of gorgeous robes and dresses - so you don't have to worry about what you'll wear. During your session, I give you plenty of easy-to-follow direction so that you look natural and beautiful in your photographs. And, because I know you have a lot on your to-do list these days, your session only takes about an hour.

your maternity session can be booked as a stand alone session or paired with a newborn session. please contact me for full session details.










Your maternity session is a time to feel cared for and celebrated.

I'll even provide the perfect dress from my studio wardrobe (think Rachel Pally, Doen and Ingrid & Isabel).

Maternity sessions include your partner and baby's siblings.

Treat yourself to a solo session, spend a quiet hour with your partner, or bring the whole family.

Simple maternity sessions are photographed in my NELA studio or at a nearby garden.

You may also choose a longer maternity session at a custom location, if you'd like.

I photograph most clients when they are about 32 weeks pregnant.

Depending on how you're carrying we may photograph your session anytime between 30 and 35 weeks.

I had a wonderful experience working with Ariel for a maternity shoot. She was flexible and extremely easy to work with. I loved that she provided beautiful wardrobe choices for my maternity dress- it made the experience extra special. Although we'd just met, my family and I felt very at ease with her, as if we had known her for years. Her rapport with my 3 year old son was amazing, resulting in beautiful shots.
