The Maternity Experience

Maternity images document the beautiful beginnings of motherhood. Pregnancy is a beautiful time to be photographed. These sessions capture the quiet anticipation of meeting your little one, and the joy of all that’s to come.

About the Session

Maternity sessions typically take place between 30 – 35 weeks of pregnancy. I like to keep all of my sessions very personal to my clients and for that reason, I let them choose a location that means something to them (a favorite park or beach for example, or your very own backyard). You can choose to have a maternity session just focused on the mom-to-be or session that includes your partner, other kids, or even your pets!

What is included:

  • In person, skype or phone pre-consultation
  • Session prep guide
  • Wardrobe and accessory guidance for the session
  • On location coverage (one location, one clothing change if time allows)
  • High-resolution lightly retouched digital images of Valerie’s choosing, delivered via PASS online gallery with customizable mobile app, sharing and downloading capabilities
  • All print rights

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”
