Raising two kids can be a real STRUGGLE, but being parents to THREE is a whole different story and can be a hard thing to juggle!! When this mama-to-be came to us for her Atlanta maternity session, she immediately knew that she wanted to include her hubby and two sons ages 1 and 3! She knew that this is a time she will never get back as their family is growing by 1 baby girl in July!! She will soon be the most amazing mother to 3 incredible children.
Looking at these maternity photos and the emotion and connection between this beautiful family you would never know that behind the scenes was… well… a hot mess to say the least! lol! The 1-year-old was an absolute doll while the 3-year-old did 3-year-old things!! We know what you’re thinking, “OMG I would kill my kids if they acted up during our shoot!” This is every parent’s reaction!! But, it’s actually so normal! And we were still able to capture some super adorable and sweet moments!
Becoming a family of 5 you may soon realize you need a bigger car and a lot more snacks because let’s face it someone is always hungry and thirsty! But, the amount of love, hugs, and amount of fun you will have also multiply times three! Most importantly you will be able to watch them grow together and form an amazing bond and know they will always have each other. Seeing them together will fill your heart with so much love that you could never imagine doing life without them ❤️
Jenna, we know you are so excited about bringing your baby girl into the world welcomed by two Big Brothers! Although there will be days of laughter followed by days of “Oh God I have failed miserably” if we had to choose someone to be the perfect mom it would be you! Not because you’re perfect and don’t screw up (I mean geez you’re still learning!) but because your love for your children and the parenting values you bestow will guide you through your parenting journey.
We are so, so happy you trusted us to capture your maternity photos and to capture your precious family! You are truly going to value and cherish this time several years down the road when you look back and your little babies are all grown up!

Our maternity sessions are truly meant to celebrate the beauty and power of motherhood. Many women have found this experience to be life-changing and empowering.

Our maternity sessions are styled like a fashion shoot. We personalize every session to make you look and feel elegant and alluring, while providing gorgeous, timeless images you can enjoy for years to come. All maternity sessions are tailored specifically to you. We will work together to plan various artistic lighting set-ups, backgrounds, poses, and style changes. Your maternity session is never rushed! We only book one client a day which allows us freedom to spend the time needed to perfect each set up and help you make the most out of your shoot.
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. We can’t wait to show you how incredible you look as art!
