maternity and newborn photography

Welcome to my beautiful studio in Bend, Oregon! I love nothing more than capturing the beauty of motherhood, babies, and their bond through photography. I don’t follow the latest trends in maternity and newborn photography, my goal is to create timeless, classic portraits that truly capture those precious moments from the beginning. These images will become treasured keepsakes that your family will cherish for years to come. With The Motherhood Membership, I offer a comprehensive way to capture all the wonderful moments from your maternity session and newborn session all the way through your baby’s first year and beyond. So, come on in and let me help you create a lifetime of memories!

The Importance In Capturing Maternity and Newborn Photographs

Maternity and newborn photography sessions are all about capturing those incredible moments of anticipation, love, and the amazing journey of motherhood. Ideally, maternity sessions occur during 28-32 weeks, when mom visibly shows the new life waiting to be born.

Newborn moments are so special and they can pass by in the blink of an eye. That’s why professional newborn photography in Bend, OR is so important. Sessions are all about capturing those precious emotions of innocence, newness, and love that a new baby brings to a family. The best time to schedule these sessions is within the baby’s first ten days when they’re still very relaxed and sleepy. As someone who loves taking family portraits, I focus on capturing natural expressions that convey genuine feelings in each session, making the experience comfortable and joyful. I make sure to capture all the little details like the cute little fingers and toes, so you can always remember just how small they were. With more than 20 years of experience in maternity and newborn photography, I am an expert at helping mothers feel relaxed and enjoy their sessions.

The Motherhood Membership

Motherhood is an amazing journey packed with unforgettable memories and milestones to celebrate every step of the way. The membership provides an exclusive way to document these moments through portraiture. The one-year luxury membership will consist of up to four sessions, starting with maternity and newborn photography sessions, the milestone event of sitting up, first birthday, and all the family happiness that comes with it. This great approach lets families dive deep into the beautiful story of their baby’s first year. My passion for capturing family moments will help you cherish them forever. The finished images represent love, connection, and the memories of new life.
