Not Your Typical Pregnancy Photoshoot

The best maternity photos convey emotion, achieved through a collaborative process between the photographer and the subject. For your pregnancy photoshoot in Northern Virginia, we’ll work together every step of the way from choosing the best locations to portray your family’s story, to picking the most flattering wardrobe, and using prompts to evoke natural interactions and connections.

What to expect

In general, on-location maternity sessions begin approximately 15 minutes before sunrise, or 45 minutes before sunset — it does vary by location, so be sure to check your booked time. We start photography and will move around the property stopping at various spots to capture photos. We’ll get a mix of images including the birthing parent alone, the birthing parent with their spouse or partner if they’re joining us, and then images with siblings if there are any. We may also capture details of the belly if desired. If the birthing parent would like to change outfits half-way through, I provide a small changing tent for their convenience. I aim to keep sessions around 30-40 minutes. This length is great for getting a gallery with a variety of images, without keeping the birthing parent out in the heat or cold for too long.
