When Amanda came to us for her Atlanta maternity session little did we realize the Incredible journey she was on. Amanda, like many thousands of other women, had walked a lonely, deep dark path of infertility. We wanted to shed some light on infertility. So you may better understand and maybe even be a support to someone going through this.
Every one in eight couples have trouble getting pregnant. The emotional rollercoaster of ups and downs with infertility can be more than some can bear. It’s absolutely heartbreaking. Every test that comes back negative makes you feel like a failure as a woman. And many people just don’t understand it. Seeing everyone announce their pregnancy can be so devastating to someone experiencing this. Not because they’re not happy you are pregnant, but because they are sad they are not. All this gut wrenching pain can be hard on relationships and marriages. Even if they are lucky enough to get pregnant, the constant worry that something will go wrong can be just as excruciating.
Looking at her strength and beauty in her maternity portraits speaks volumes. It is so clear the warrior she is and the pain she went through to get to this moment.
Capturing such significant moments in your life is our purpose! We our so grateful we could be a part of recording this triumph season in your life. Amanda, your baby girl is so lucky you fought for her life! We pray for everyone experiencing infertility. The road is not easy and we support each and every women going through this process. We do understand.

When to Schedule Your Maternity Session
Maternity sessions are best captured between 29 to 36 weeks. We recommend booking your maternity session with us at least 1 month in advance. If your schedule does not allow for that we would be happy to work with you on timing.
Hair & Makeup
Professional hair & makeup artistry is highly recommended for stunning portraits, and is included in our packages. You will get to sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered by our amazing glam expert before your photography session starts. Whether you prefer to stay natural or want a more dramatic look, our stylist will accentuate your beauty and sexiness.
Complete & customized professional retouching is included in your session! So you don’t have to worry about any little imperfections such as blemishes and certain body contours. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed editing and will enhance and transform the image into a stunning work of art.
What to Expect After Your Maternity Session
Our reveal + ordering appointments are scheduled 2-3 weeks after your session. This is when you will be able to view your fully retouched and artistically edited images for the first time! After watching a theatrical slideshow of your stunning photos, we will go through all of your photos together and help you decide what you want to display in your home.
