Why You Should Book A Maternity Session

The last several months of pregnancy are spent watching your little bump grow. You’re probably wondering who your little love might be! What better way to celebrate this special time than to book a luxurious maternity portrait session full of pampering? As a maternity photographer in Wilmington, NC I am so honored when soon to be parents reach out to me to book a maternity session!

This is one of the most special times in their parenthood journey. I’m so grateful for my clients who entrust me to capture it! I love documenting your growing baby bump and the sweet intimacy of motherhood. These images will be some of your most cherished ones of this amazing season in your life.

Every Pregnancy Is Different

Whether it is your first babe or fifth, each one of your pregnancies is special and unique from the last. Take this opportunity to capture those precious moments! During our shoot, you can enjoy the wonderful and miraculous life your body is creating. When your child is older, they will be so excited to look at these lovely photos of their mama! It will be such a special memory of while they were growing inside of you.

Pamper Yourself With A Luxurious Maternity Portrait Experience

When you book a maternity session, the most important thing for me to do is to make you feel your most beautiful. First, we will schedule a pre-session consultation/styling appointment at my studio. We will do a dress fitting to find the perfect one for you! I will style you in something that flatters your growing bump, and pairs well with your portrait session vibe.

On session day, you have the opportunity to be immersed in our luxurious portrait experience with full hair and makeup. While shooting, I will guide you through natural, beautiful, and organic poses that flow into each other. This way, you can spend time being one with your body. And, experience intimate and quiet moments with your husband and family. Who knew pregnancy could look so glamorous? That bump is beautiful and there’s no better way to show it off than with a maternity session.

Bonding Experience With Your Older Children

If you have older children, this is a wonderful way to get them involved! There is so much excitement and happiness when adding a new sibling. This session might be your last (or only) opportunity to enjoy the moments with just them and you! Why not spend it laughing, hugging, and savoring those final “first baby” experiences before your family grows? These portraits will remind you of all the sweet emotion and abundant joy motherhood brings. Photos are a wonderful way for bringing back memories to relive. This is your chance to create those memories of growing a new life and celebrating your family!

Bond With Your Husband

A maternity session is a sweet way to bond with your husband. Sometimes dad does not feel as included since the baby is growing inside of you. Getting dad involved in your session can help him bond with the baby and with you. This will create those extra memorable moments he will cherish, too.
