Words are often inadequate when describing the incredible beauty that is maternity. Our goal is to preserve this wonderful time in your life with contemporary images that accent that beauty. To do so, we will provide professional studio lighting and a very stylized, fine art approach to our maternity photography.

You can expect lovely images in both color and B&W which will be similar to what you see in our maternity gallery. If you have a special image concept you would like us to replicate or a special style of lighting you've seen somewhere, please let us know. We will try to fit it into your session if a sample image is provided to us in advance. However, PLEASE don't present us with multiple image styles to replicate; there simply isn't enough time in your session to do that.

You can expect up to 200 plus proof images to choose from in your online proofing gallery; poses may include combinations of mother only, mother and father or mother and children. A large part of the session however, will be devoted to the mother-to-be unless you specify otherwise. The best time to schedule your session appointment is in your seventh month when you are at your most round and radiant. Please take a moment to visit our maternity photography portfolio page for sample images of our work.


The maternity portfolio package includes the following:

1) Session fee
2) Various lighting set ups with you or you and your spouse or you and children
3) Up to two hundred exposures or poses to choose from
4) Personalized online proof gallery to make your selections
5) A collection of twenty 5x7 prints and
6) Four 8x10 prints

ALL for only $595.

In addition, our fee includes minor requested touch-ups, cropping and sizing of all selected images!

***The prints alone are valued at well over two hundred dollars and we print all of our images using only professional, archival quality materials.

**NOTE: If you're looking for that one special image to create a large canvas, portrait print or a "panel series" of your most dynamic three images from the shoot, you can pay only the three hour session fee of $425 (in-studio only) and order canvas or large portrait prints from us a la carte.

ON A TIGHT BUDGET? If you just want a beautiful maternity portrait of yourself, we would treat your session like a portrait sitting with ONE lighting set up, wearing your favorite maternity dress. You would get up to 25 poses, and our basic print package including one 8x10, two 5x7's and one sheet of wallets, all for only $195.

NOTE: Budget Sessions are for one hour and do NOT include multiple lighting set ups, background changes or images on disc.

Images are not provided on disc for any of our maternity sessions.

NOTE: Depending on client preferences regarding lighting styles, in home maternity photos may require a minimum amount of space to work in. An in-home setup fee will also apply.
Please contact us for more information.

NOTE: Please keep in mind that creating a variety of stylistic lighting set-ups, as seen in our maternity portfolio, will take time. In fact, most of our maternity sessions will last anywhere from two to three hours. If you want your maternity shoot to include children under the age of ten, please consider that the majority of young children do not have the patience to sit around for a three hour session, especially toddlers. We strongly recommend that you make arrangements to have them arrive near the END of your session. It is important that you are able to relax and fully enjoy your shoot time without worrying about the children's behavior. This is why it is also not a good idea to start your session with young children. If they are not in the best of moods, it could negatively impact your mood for the rest of the session.

Within a week or so after your shoot date, you will be given a special link to your personalized online proof gallery. After you review your proofs online, favorite choices and additional prints can be ordered by email; just send us your list. Additional prints not included in your package are priced according to print size and amount of prints ordered. Additional print pricing will always include minor touch-ups and cropping

Additional prints are billed separately at:
$5 for 4x6
$10 for 5x7

$20 for 8x10

$45 for 11x14
$75 for 13x19
$20 for wallet or announcement size (2 x 2.5 @ 16 per page OR 2.5 x 3.25 @ 9 per page)

These same print prices apply to enlargement reprints on all of our packages.

NOTE: Master image files on disc are only available on actor headshot package and model's portfolio or at the discretion of the photographer with selected packages and events.

(Even though it's usually less, please allow up to two to three weeks turnaround time on prints)

(Travel to locations over thirty miles outside of the greater metropolitan New Orleans area will be billed at an additional $0.55 cents per mile, to and from the location.)


Our maternity plus newborn package includes the same maternity session as above, plus a special one hour newborn session within the first three weeks of baby's birth. If baby and mommy need more than an hour of time for a session, we are always willing to extend the session as needed to allow for feeding, diaper changes and any other surprises baby may have for us. We encourage father and siblings to be part of the session.

If you have additional questions, please call us at
504-897-2333 or just click on this contact form link, complete the form and we will contact you in less than 24 hours. Thank you.
