7 Simple Steps to a Successful Maternity Photo Session

I am such a lucky duck being able to photograph so many gorgeous pregnant ladies! There is something extra special, a gentle aura, that surrounds an expecting momma. It just makes these sessions so much sweeter to photograph.

Over the years, I have collected a little list of items to help an expecting momma be prepared for their maternity session! Here are 7 of them. I hope you’ll find it as helpful as many of my past clients!


Beach Family Photos Jupiter Florida

We had so much fun together at Coral Cove Park in Tequesta. I love photographing families there. The beach is a beautiful aqua color and the rocks make for another fun backdrop too. This family is into sports so I was not holding back, making them run up and down the beach and play in the waves! It’s all about having fun and creating memories after all!


Beautiful Erica – Palm Beach County Beach Maternity Portraits

It was such a pleasure photographing Erika and Scott and their fur baby Skylar.  They were wonderful people to work with. Her smile is capturing and her laugh is so honest. It is easy to see that she and her husband truly adore each other and it showed in every pictures. I didn’t have to do much posing with those two lovebirds as it just came so naturally to them but it was the subtle thing, the little kiss on the shoulder, the extra squeeze, the way they looked at each other, the whispering in her ear…  What a lucky little peanut growing in her belly. They will be wonderful and loving parents. Best of luck to the both of them!



Beautiful Karla – Palm Beach County Beach Maternity Portraits

I had such a wonderful time during this maternity shoot. Karla is such a stunning mommy to be  and I loved capturing her glowing maternity portraits on the beaches of Jupiter Florida. I have recently moved to South Florida and I am absolutely falling in love capturing sunset portraits.


Valentine Beach Session in Jupiter, FL – Children Portrait Session

I took my kids to the Jupiter, FL beach in the beginning of February for a few Valentine pictures. We had so much fun doing it and the kids enjoyed being in front of the camera. I took a few pictures with my little girl as I was watching my boys walking along the beach, playing, laughing, tickling each other. I stopped for a minute and soaked it all in… we were creating memories… memories I wanted to make sure we captured for our family album….



Palm Beach Sunflower Field Children Portrait Session in Wellington South Florida

I had so much fun with my three munchkins at the Sunflower Fields here in Wellington South Florida. The guys at Palm Beach Sunflowers did and amazing job planting these happy flowers! I can’t wait to bring clients here next year and I heard, it’s going to be even bigger than this year! <3



South Florida Newborn Photographer – Newborn Baby Boy Jase

Say “hello” to baby boy Jase! This handsome little boy came to visit me only a few days after he left the hospital. I was so excited to meet him! I had already met his mom and dad a few weeks back for a maternity session while they were still patiently awaiting his arrival. They both were just the most wonderful people to work with, so loving and so calm. I could just tell that their newborn session was going to be just the same way.


Sweet Caroline – South Florida Newborn Photographer

I love when clients come back to have their newest addition photographed at my Jupiter studio. It was so great seeing this family again and spending a few hours together. Just like her big sister, she was a super light sleeper and I definitely had to use some elbow grease…. but she sure made up for it with her sweet little angel face.  Isn’t she gorgeous? Welcome to the world, sweet Caroline!…

With Love,
