Malibu Maternity Session
These two ER doctors worked through the Covid crisis and used this maternity session as a short date to take a deep breath and celebrate their upcoming new addition.
The mom-to-be grew up going to the beach and swimming in the ocean, so we made sure to get beautiful posed photos of her in the water.

Backyard Maternity Session
This mama chose a sweet and simple maternity session in her backyard to celebrate the home where they became a family and the upcoming arrival of their second baby.
Maternity sessions don't need to involve huge dresses or epic locations -- they can simply be a documentary-style celebration of your family, exactly how you are.
Trail Session in Rancho Palos Verdes
For this session, we did some more casual lifestyle maternity photos with the dad-to-be as well as traditionally posed and styled maternity shots overlooking the ocean at sunset in a beautiful gown.
Wardrobe changes are absolutely allowed and encouraged in maternity sessions and I always bring a changing tent for your comfort.
Want to wear a stunning dress and take gorgeous photos of your changing body at sunset? Let's do it. Want to celebrate this transition in the documentary backyard session with the older sibling-to-be? I'm there. Want intimate photos of you and your partner before your lives change forever? Call me.
Welcoming a new family member into your lives is such a huge transition and I want to document it for you -- in the way you'd like to be documented.
YOUR BEAUTIFUL BODY CAN DO AMAZING THINGS. LET'S DOCUMENT YOUR EXPERIENCE.
It starts with an email. Once we've connected, we'll discuss availability and what type of session you're looking for. (Please keep in mind that fall is my busiest season and usually books 2-3 months out -- so get on my calendar early!) The best way to ensure you get a session is to get on my mailing list. Subscribers get first dibs when I open up my fall schedule or offer mini sessions.
After we've agreed on a date, I'll send you a booking link so that you can officially reserve your date with a signed contract and $300 retainer.
1. Say Hello
2. Planning your session
Once you're booked in, we'll start planning your session!
I have a location menu to help you choose the best location for your session and some style tips to help you decide how to style your family. Don't worry, I don't leave you alone with these steps. I'll be checking in to offer help and second opinions if you need them.
Once you've arrived at the location, it's time to relax and have fun -- your work is done! Let me take it from here and guide your family through prompts and games to get your family connecting and enjoying each other.
Within one week of your session, you'll receive a watermarked proofing gallery where you can choose your favorite images.
3. SHOOT DAY
Within 2 weeks of you choosing your images, your beautiful gallery will land in your in-box for you to enjoy.
When you're ready to get some artwork onto the walls, your print credit will be waiting for you. I've selected the best labs and products for your gallery store and you can use your print credit to buy prints, albums, or matted frames that are drop-shipped directly to your door.

PHOTO PACKAGES STARTING AT $900
I offer three photo packages starting at $900. (Your retainer is applied to your photo package.) After your session, you'll receive a lightly edited, watermarked proofing gallery and will be able to choose your favorites for me to fully retouch and return to you as printable, hi-resolution images.
Maternity clients who book a newborn session as well will receive 10% off of the newborn session.
