These sessions are all about capturing the love and bond you and your partner have for each other. It is a wonderful way to celebrate your pregnancy and prepare for the arrival of this new person.
Maternity sessions are held in my home studio, outdoors or they can be done as a lifestyle session in your home. A maternity session is typically held in the last trimester between 32 and 36 weeks. Since every pregnancy is different, please let me know in advance if there is anything I should know when booking.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I book my maternity session?
Booking your maternity session as early as possible is generally a great idea. Typically in your last trimester and between 32 and 36 weeks. Since every pregnancy is different, it’s best to make sure that mom is not too uncomfortable and exhausted. While I do my best to accommodate last minute bookings, I pencil in your due date well ahead so that I can provide the quality and customer service that you deserve.
Where are maternity sessions held?
Maternity sessions can be held in studio, outdoors or done in your home as a lifestyle shoot. My home studio is located in North Oshawa. Outdoor locations can be done in and around the Durham Region. If you prefer a location outside of Durham Region a minimal travel fee will be applicable.
How long does a maternity session last?
Sessions generally last about an hour. I encourage couples to be present in these sessions as it allows me to document and evoke the love and excitement you have as parents to be. The studio has minimal maternity gowns to borrow, however if you have an outfit to change into during your session, please feel free to bring it along. Planning for your session and what to expect are gone over during our consultation before you arrive for your session date.
After the session what happens?
7-10 business days after the session we will schedule a time to come into the studio for your viewing and ordering appointment. Together we will view your gallery and choose what products and art that best suits your needs and home.
Do you offer digital files?
Yes many clients wish to self-archive and keep their photographs from our sessions. Please refer to the Pricing page or contact me for any questions. I look forward to speaking with you.
