Maternity + Motherhood Sessions

Maternity

What better way to celebrate this season of life than with a maternity session? I love capturing the beauty of pregnancy while, at the same time, capturing the special bond between mom and baby that can only be found during pregnancy. Though you're going through a lot, what your body is doing is nothing short of a miracle and being able to capture that in it's raw beauty is such a privilage. Partners and children are welcome to join these sessions. Take a look at my portfolio below to see if I am the right photographer to capture this season of life.

Motherhood

There is nothing more special than a motherhood session. From the beginning of your motherhood journey to the beginning of you grandmother journey and all of the bittersweet moments in-between, I am honored to be able to help celebrate motherhood journeys and capture them in each season. Take a look at my motherhood portfolio below and if I seem like a good fit just fill out my contact form and I will get back to you as soon as I can!


This season of life is so important

My maternity process:

01.

Fill out the form

Are you ready to make your dream maternity session a reality? Start by filling out my contact form. This is going to give me all of the information I need to send you my investment guide and start the scheduling process. I recommend scheduling your maternity session for when you are 25-30 weeks along.

Contract and payment

Once you have decided on a session length I will send you a contract and non-refundable retainer. As soon as you take care of these two things your session is officially official!

 

03.

Planning and session

Once your session is booked, I will email you a copy of my style guide and color guide. These two resources are packed with all of my pro tips as well as locations ideas and more. Once you have a chance to go over them, just let me know and we can begin selecting your location and styling your session outfits! We will meet at your session location and I will guide you through the entire session.

Gallery and prints

Your session will be delivered via a private online gallery ready for web use. You have the option to purchase prints through my professional print lab, attached to your gallery, or to purchase high-resolution files of the images you would like to print and print them at the retail lab of your choice. Your session comes with unlimited digital downloads.

Kind words


Desiree was so great to work with! Her communication was top notch, she made an effort to find exactly what we were looking for in our session, and above all she was so kind and patient with our kids! We would definitely recommend her and definitely use her again in the future.

Sadie

Desiree has been absolutely amazing to work with!  I originally booked her for a maternity shoot but sweet Sidney decided to come before we could make that happen.  Thankfully Desiree has been able to capture SO many precious moments since then!  She is makes photos comfortable, natural, and always so much fun!  I have and will continue to recommend her!  You will LOVE your photo sessions and photos.

Jasmine

Desiree is excellent! I had a friend give us the best compliment on Shannen’s seniors pictures - she said that she saw ALL of Shannen’s personality reflected in the pictures. What more could you ask for!?
