“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.

Why should I have a maternity session?

So many women say they regret not creating portraits while they were pregnant and that baby bump was in glorious form!

This is an amazing time in any woman’s life and it’s not only a pampering experience but an opportunity to document you at a time when you truly glow. You may not feel like it on many days but you do! And what better gift for your child but to show you as you were carrying them.

Is my spouse or significant other welcome to join?

Yes, absolutely! I recommend having him join either at the very beginning of the photoshoot or at the tail end, but he should not feel obligated to stay for the entire session.

Can I buy “just the digitals”?

Every print you order comes with the accompanying digital, suitable for sharing on social media! I highly recommend buying something tangible, something that will be with you way longer than however long your hard drive lasts. One key reason: This is a high-end, luxury photoshoot that is designed to create images that are to be treasured for generations. Most people find that they rarely do anything with the digitals and they just sit there collecting virtual dust on a hard drive. The aim is to provide you with images that will exist for the generations that follow: your children, your grandchildren and beyond.

Do you also photograph “mommy and me” sessions?

I do! When you book your maternity session, just let me know if you also would like to plan a mommy and me session with your baby. These sessions are generally held when the baby is about 6 months old. That’s a good time because they’re old enough to show some personality but young enough that you can easily hold the baby for an extended period of time without much fuss.


We’ll schedule a consultation by Zoom or in my Boise studio to design the photoshoot you’d like to create.


We’ll hold our photoshoot, using different backdrops and different wardrobes, and I’ll guide you through the right expressions and poses that are captivating and flattering.


About 2 weeks after your photoshoot, we’ll meet again to view a selection of edited images from your session. It’s here where you’ll get to decide which images you would like to select. You have already paid for a package and you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade it at this time.
