Waiting for Baby Moo - Rochester, Michigan - Maternity Photographer

I used to work with these two beautiful humans at the day job, so I was super excited when I found out they are expecting their first baby.  I was even more excited when Amanda contacted me to capture their maternity and newborn photos! 

Our maternity session was supposed to take place partly outside, but Mother Nature had other things in mind that day…torrential downpours, crazy thunderstorms and even a tornado warning.  So we decided to keep things inside, and I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.  I loved the light in their cozy home.   I also loved meeting their first baby, Lola, who is going to make a great big sis! 

Below are a few of my favorites from my maternity photo shoot with Amanda, Mike and Lola. I can’t wait to meet their little guy, who is due any day now!

Did you know that maternity photos are an affordable add-on to my newborn and milestone photography packages? Growing a human is a big deal, and I don’t think any mama-to-be should miss out on capturing this amazing time in your life. Head on over to this page if you are curious about pricing .

Why You Should Get the Maternity Photos - Rochester, Michigan - Maternity & Family Photographer

Sure, maybe I’m biased. I’m a photographer selling my photography service, after all. But, I have so many other reasons why I think you should book that Maternity Photo Session!

Nine short months.

Yes, at times, it feels like it’s dragging on forever. The constant peeing and frequent discomfort can be annoying, but nine months really does go by in the blink of an eye.

Your body is a freaking miracle…you’re growing a human! You WILL look back on that very brief time and think how amazing it was that you grew a person inside of you. And, I think you will really like to have a few great pictures of that time in your life. I’m not talking bathroom-mirror selfies, Mama. I’m talking about photos that truly capture your beautiful glow, the way your husband looks at you, the way your toddler looks at that belly. :)

It’s More Affordable Than You Think

I can’t speak for all photographers, but many do offer discounted maternity photography in conjunction with a newborn session….including myself! You can head to my Pricing Page for further details, and you’ll find that I offer a maternity photo session for only $125 when you also book your upcoming newborn photography session with me. That is the lowest session fee that I offer! I don’t want cost to get in the way of anyone getting amazing maternity photos. It’s THAT important! :) When you book maternity & newborn photos together, it works out to be a really great deal.

Your Future Baby Will Thank You

If you already have kids, you know that they LOVE looking at old pictures of themselves. They will definitely get a kick out of seeing pictures when they were in your belly. If you are putting a baby book together, you will definitely want to include a few of your maternity photos.

When To Schedule?

This is the most common question I get asked about Maternity Photography. In my opinion, you should capture the later part of pregnancy when that baby bump is bumping :) but before that last month when things start getting a tad uncomfortable.

You also don’t want to wait until the final month jusssst in case baby decides to make their debut early. That was the case for the Mama in these photos! We captured her maternity photos just in the nick of time before baby was born a month early!

Right around the 30 week mark is a great time to capture your maternity photos. Make sure to reach out a couple months prior to ensure photographer availability, and don’t forget to also schedule your newborn session at that time (I like to shoot newborn photos within the first 3 weeks of life).
