palm springs photographer for the fun and nostalic at heart

the maternity experience

capturing that sweet stage of anticipation

Once your babies are earth side, it will be all about them. For now, let's take maternity photos for you. 

You deserve to be celebrated. Whether you've been waiting nine months or nine years for this moment, my job as a maternity photographer is to capture that glow, anticipation and joy. After all, soon it won't just be the two of you

Maternity photography sessions are usually captured between 30-35 weeks of your pregnancy, when you have a nice big bump, but are still comfortable enough to enjoy the session. Your session can be mama-to-be only or include spouse an/or other children. 

 



 I offer three types of maternity experiences; sunset, studio and lifestyle.

Studio sessions are for those momma's that want simplicity in their maternity photos.  Sunset sessions are great for incorporating gorgeous scenery and lifestyle sessions are documentary in style, laid back and focused on real moments between your partner, family and even pets.

Not sure what to wear? Clients have the option to provide their own wardrobe or choose from my growing client closet of maternity dresses. 

Want to really pamper yourself? Treat yourself by booking a hair and makeup artist for your session, ensuring that you feel like the gorgeous goddess that you are.

As a mama to be (or a busy mom already), nothing takes away from the maternity photo experience like a tight timeline. I recommend reaching out early into your second trimester, so we have an abundance of time to plan and dream the perfect session for you. It might not feel like it now, but your time being pregnant will fly by!

You can expect your images back within 1-2 weeks after your session. I carefully choose the best images and edit with lots of love to make sure there is consistency throughout your entire gallery.

I recommend to stick with neutral, earthy tones as they never go out of style. They also go best with my editing and photography style. Once you book, you will receive a client portal with tons of information on what to wear, as well as guidance from me, with one on one calls. I also want to take as much stress as I can off of you, so I have a growing client closet of items for you to choose from for your session. 

I do and want to travel more outside of the state! There is a travel fee involved, but if you need me to travel to you, I am more than happy to do so. 

A nonrefundable session fee of $300 is required to hold your session date and time as well as a signed contract. The remainder of the collection fee is due the day of the session. 

Reach out and I will walk you through all of your options. Can't wait to meet you!

"she is so gifted and wonderful to work with."

Deja took the most AMAZING photographs of my 2 year old niece! She not only got her to smile beautifully and naturally at the camera, but Deja also captured fantastic (and heartwarming) candid shots when even mom didn't know the camera was on. She is so gifted and wonderful to work with!
