Every mama deserves a few beautiful portraits to document her pregnancy.
As anyone who has experienced pregnancy knows… motherhood begins well before birth.
Whether your pregnancy has been a dream or a challenge, you deserve a collection of beautiful portraits to celebrate your journey and show your child how eagerly you anticipated their arrival!
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!

Pregnancy isn't always easy, but your maternity portraits will be.
Photographed with the same simple aesthetic as my newborn work, your maternity portraits celebrate the quiet power and simple beauty of pregnancy.
My maternity sessions are designed to be easy and convenient – not a big production. Choose one of the gorgeous dresses from the studio wardrobe collection and spend an hour celebrating yourself and your baby. You'll be glad you did.

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.
