Maternity Sessions

MINNEAPOLIS MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

"Words cannot explain the emotions Emma captures... the feelings you get from seeing the images... the moments frozen in time. Emma has captured many moments for me over the years; each time I am blown away & in awe!" - Caitlin K.

Maternity Session Experience

Whether this is your first time experiencing pregnancy or you’ve been through this journey before, each & every time is truly remarkable & distinct!

Rest assured that the beauty of creating a new life & the emotions that accompany it can be preserved for your lifetime & beyond. Your stunning images will be the picture book to share not only this chapter of your story, but also where their story began.

01. Booking
We start with my booking calendar where you can quickly & easily choose your date, session type & package level, sign your contract & pay your deposit to secure your session - easy peasy! After you're booked you will receive my session guide, which goes over how to prep & what to expect for our time together, as well as my styling inspiration boards & a questionnaire so I can get to know you better!

02. Planning
As our time together approaches I'll reach out to discuss & start planning your wardrobe. I have several gorgeous maternity gowns we can choose from & I always recommend using 2-3 during your session for variety, so get excited! We'll then talk about location ideas so, together with your curated outfits, we can create a beautiful & cohesive setting for your images.

03. Session
On session day all you need to do is show up dressed & ready enjoy your time! Sessions typically last 60-90 minutes. This allows us the time & slower-pace needed to capture a complete gallery of storytelling images full of variety, real moments & all the details my clients love & have come to expect! Presence & connection will be our priority while I guide & direct for natural movement & interaction so your images authentically reflect this unique time of your life. Let all the nerves & pressure for perfection slip away... you're in good hands!

04. Delivery
After I've had the time needed to hand-edit all of your precious memories comes everyone's favorite part - gallery delivery! This process can take 4-6 weeks as my editing method is very detailed & all-inclusive. I'll email you a link to a personalized slideshow of your images set to music that I HIGHLY recommend you watch as your first viewing experience - it ensures you give each image it's own time of observance before moving on to the next. Plus, it's like watching a movie replay of your session (just the best parts, I promise!) so you can feel all the feels all over again!
