I suggest scheduling your maternity photo session between the sixth or eighth month of pregnancy. Your belly will have a nice round shape during this time frame, perfect for taking photographs. Usually swelling and feeling totally uncomfortable hits around 35 weeks for most women so try to avoid that time.
If you are expecting multiples we suggest booking your maternity session a little earlier.
As always, I suggest scheduling in advance to ensure availability between 28-34 weeks.
When booking your Maternity session, I Like to schedule a short phone call answer any questions you might have and to gather information to customize your maternity session. During this call I will go over All my maternity gowns, location choices, your pregnancy, likes and dislikes. After this call I choose a location that best fits your vision for your maternity session. During your session, I will capture the beauty of you growing bump. Spouses and older sibling may participate in this session.
There is no need to buy an expensive maternity gown for the session, I have a great selection of gowns to choose from at no additional cost.
On the day of your session, we will meet at the chosen location just before sunset or in studio. I purposely choose this time for its gorgeous sunlight. Please do not arrive early if you have small children. It is best to arrive right on time.
It generally takes me about two weeks to soft edit each session. I will contact you once your gallery is ready to schedule a time for your family to come view your gallery. At this time, I will help you hand select your artwork and the collection that best fits your needs. All images that are chosen with be fully edited before delivery.
Maternity sessions have a $75 retainer at booking to hold the date chosen. (Retainer does not go towards the session fee.) The session last about 45 minutes and will give you enough time to change gowns if you would like. Session fees are due on the day of your maternity session.
- Outdoor Maternity session fee: $125
- Mini Studio Maternity session fee $200 (Includes 5 digital images, available only when booking a newborn session)
(Prints, CD/Digital images, Wall Art sold separately.)

–Melissa Arellano, Tulsa, OK
Janel did both my maternity and my newborn photos. She was easy going, didn’t make me feel uncomfortable (I get awkward with photos and poses) and she was very sweet. She had snacks for my two older kids which was nice because they just sat back and waited for the session to be done. She’s very professional and I highly Recommend her!
