Charlotte Maternity Photographer

Every pregnancy is as unique and beautiful as each expecting mama. As a Charlotte maternity photographer, I strive to make sure you are comfortable and feel beautiful during your session in an effort to capture and showcase genuine emotion.

No matter if you’re looking for timeless, classic images of just yourself or if you want to get your significant other involved, we can make the session work perfectly for you.

Choose from either fine art studio portraits or let me help you select the perfect outdoor location. I promise, whatever you go with - it'll be tailored to you.

Every Picture Tells a


Some might say I'm old fashioned, but I prefer the feeling of a photo in my hand over a digital file any day. Don't get me wrong, I know we live in a digital age - but your memories deserve to be works of art in your home. After all, that's what photos are for, right?

You're booking a professional photographer - you deserve to leave with professional artwork. Take a peek at some of the heirloom products we have to offer in our product guide.

Thank you! We will be in touch with you shortly!
