Pregnancy is such a significant and special time in your life. I will guide you on exactly how to pose in a flattering manner while elegantly highlighting your pregnant belly. I remember all too well how it felt being pregnant and wishing someone could take my portraits in a way that would make me feel gorgeous; especially when I wasn’t feeling so beautiful. I don't have a picture of my mom pregnant with me and that would be something I would cherish.
Your pregnant with this baby only once and they will be here before you know it. Do not miss this once in a lifetime event to capture stunning maternity portraits. If not for yourself, give your child the gift of seeing them come from within you.
I recommend booking in advance as session availability is limited and my calendar fills up quickly. The sooner the better! It is best to inquire about scheduling a newborn or maternity session at the beginning of your second trimester. I do offer last minute if available, so please do not hesitate to contact me with the date inquiries!
Please refer to the investment page for information on session pricing. A non-refundable retainer is required to reserve a date on my calendar. I currently accept cash, check, and Credit Cards.
Sick babies and parents are not allowed in the studio. This is extremely important due to babies who are just days old who come into my studio frequently. If you must cancel an appointment, please call at least 24 hours in advance to reschedule.
With my digital collections, yes! These sessions include a print release for the high-resolution digital images. Clients are able to print as many copies as they want, wherever they want!
Whitney D Photography offers both tabletop and wall prints, canvases, albums, and custom birth announcements.
Typically I have images ready for your viewing and ordering session within 5 days, sometimes sooner! Once you place your order, your images and products will be ready within a week. So that’s less than two weeks from the time of your session to when you have your finished images and prints.
Please back up your images as soon as you receive them. You can never have too many copies of your digital files for safekeeping. Things can happen to your computer, so I recommend saving them on both a hard drive and a cloud service. All images are archived for 12 months. While it's not guaranteed that they are still available, recovery of images past 12 months will be subject to an additional fee.
Sales tax in the amount of 9.125% is applicable for all sessions and orders.
All images are the property Whitney D. Photography and are copyright protected. Please note that it is illegal to scan prints, right-click or screenshot images featured on the website or the blog, sell or alter images received in digital or print format.
Session Fees are due at time of booking.
The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer and all that is required to run a successful studio. These fees do not include any prints or digitals - they are for the session only. Product and Digital Collections start at $250.
This session includes the use of my collection of gowns and maternity wear, though you are welcome to use your own clothing. You can even have one outfit change if you would like the option of wearing your own clothes or one of my dresses. Sessions can take place in studio or on location and are up to 45 minutes in length. Your family is welcome to be a part of the session as well!
Maternity portraits are best scheduled between 32-36 weeks of pregnancy.
