Welcome to our latest blog post, where we delve deep into the enchanting world of maternity and newborn photography. As one of the world’s premier maternity, newborn, and family photographers, I'm here to share my expertise and guide you through everything you need to know about capturing these fleeting moments. Whether you're expecting your first child or adding to your growing family, this guide is crafted to help you make informed decisions and cherish these memories forever.

Understanding the Photographer's Experience and Style

How long have you been specializing in maternity and newborn photography?

Experience is key in capturing these special moments. I've spent over a decade honing my skills, specializing in maternity and newborn photography, to provide you with beautiful, timeless images. I worked with over 1.700 babies and pregnant women from 94 countries.

Can I see your portfolio?

My portfolio reflects a wide range of styles and settings, showcasing my versatility and commitment to capturing the unique beauty of each family. I encourage you to explore my work to ensure my style aligns with your vision.

What is your photography style?

I blend natural and studio lighting to create the perfect ambiance, combining posed and lifestyle photography to capture genuine, intimate moments. Every session is tailored to reflect the unique essence of the families I work with.

I offer both indoor sessions for THE GODDESS MATERNITY and outdoor sessions for THE STORYTELLER MATERNITY & FAMILY. I offer both in-studio newborn and in-home life style sessions for your babies. As everyone has different needs and wants, I ensure that you receive timeless and beautiful photos that you and your future generations can cherish.

Preparing for Your Maternity Shoot

When is the best time for a maternity photo shoot?

Scheduling your session between 28 and 36 weeks allows us to comfortably capture your radiant glow and highlight the beauty of your pregnancy.

Where do the photo sessions take place?

Whether you prefer the great outdoors or a more controlled studio environment, I offer both settings and will suggest locations that complement your vision.

What about outfits?

I provide a selection of over 50+ maternity gowns and fabrics, but you're welcome to bring personal outfits that make you feel beautiful and comfortable.

Ensuring a Smooth Newborn Session

How old should my newborn be for the session?

The first two weeks of birth are ideal for newborn photography. This period captures their sleepy, malleable nature for those serene poses. But that doesn't mean you missed it if your baby is older than two weeks. We welcome babies of all ages - only the poses and the workflow change. Contact us if you have any questions about it.

What safety measures are in place?

I am one of 12 baby safety ambassadors in the world. So, your baby is in the best hands. Your baby's safety is paramount. With specialized training and strict sanitization protocols, I ensure your newborn's safe, comfortable environment.

What can I expect during the session?

I have ONE GOLDEN RULE: One session a day. Newborn sessions can last 2 to 4 hours, allowing ample time for feeding, comforting, and capturing a variety of poses. I'll guide you through the preparation process, ensuring a smooth, enjoyable experience.

Booking and Pricing

How far in advance should I book?

Booking during your second trimester is recommended to ensure availability around your due date. However, I maintain flexibility for the unpredictable nature of birth.

What do your packages include?

My packages are designed to cater to various needs, including a set number of edited images and print rights. Custom packages are also available to fit your specific desires.

After the Session

Can I order prints through you?

Yes, I offer professional printing services to transform your digital memories into high-quality prints, ensuring the preservation of your precious moments in the best format possible.

I have a print lab studio and work with one of the best printing labs in the world to ensure you'll get amazing prints.

Do you offer milestone photo packages?

Capturing your baby's growth through milestone packages is a beautiful way to document their first year. I offer sessions at key milestones to cherish every stage of their development.


Choosing the right maternity and newborn photographer is a deeply personal decision. With the right questions and a clear understanding of what to look for, you can find a photographer whose vision aligns with yours, ensuring your precious moments are captured beautifully and authentically. As a dedicated professional in this field, I'm here to make this experience unforgettable for you and your family.
