Maternity Sessions

“She is a force of nature. At her core, all the wildness of the universe.”

-John Mark Green

Wandering Woman’s Maternity Philosophy:

Dear momma, I am so excited to be part of your exciting motherhood journey! You will feel my excitement for you during our time together. My adult career has revolved around working with young families.  I have worked as a postpartum nurse, maternal child health nurse, and now a pediatric nurse!  Seeing new motherhood a thousand times is the most raw, empowering thing I’ve ever witnessed.

The little moments of helping moms latch their baby for the first time, teaching diaper changes and swaddling to a dad, empowering moms about their changed bodies and the hundreds of other details made me cherish the simplicity of newborns and mothers. 

Motherhood looks different for everyone, and I want to show how unique your journey is. I want to capture stunning images that make you feel confident and beautiful!

This baby might be your first baby or your last. This baby may have been planned or not expected in the slightest. This baby may be coming to you through adoption, or perhaps this is your long-awaited miracle baby after suffering much loss. I’m here to serve you no matter your gender, race, age, size, political stance, religion or who you choose to love.

I want to help you enjoy this experience and cherish your last moments with this baby inside you and your first moments when the baby is in your arms. I’m here to catch all those perfect, still moments in between–those moments you never want to forget.

“Had such a great experience with maternity and newborn pictures. Would highly recommend! So pleased!”

Design your dream session

Location:

Let’s pick a beautiful outdoor location to capture beautiful motherhood moments! I have locations in mind that will be perfect for your maternity session.  If you have a favorite cherished spot, let's photograph there! If you are wanting an intimate indoor session, my natural light studio is set up to make sessions comfortable and beautiful! No need to deep clean your house for an in-home session, just schedule a maternity session in my natural light studio.

During the Session:

Maternity sessions can include significant others, children, pets, or can simply be you and your growing belly.  I want my photography to show you how beautiful and empowered you are as you go forward into motherhood. I will pose you in natural and flattering ways.  Want to do pictures with a dress and a field and do exposed bump pictures near water? I’ve got you covered and can offer you signature sessions to incorporate everything you want.

Client Closet:

Styling is one of the most important aspects in my photography.  It creates the romantic and natural look you see in my photo galleries.  With each session I offer full access to my forever-growing client wardrobe and styling advice for the family.  I have hand selected a variety of bump worthy dresses that are flattering and naturally photo worthy.  I buy dresses in a variety of sizes to accommodate all moms.  

After the session:

Once your gallery is delivered you have timeless maternity pictures to be creative with.  Let me help you print your photos, arrange that perfect picture book, or find that perfect custom frame to display your new family heirlooms.
