The Maternity Experience

How your belly looks, the anticipation of meeting your little one- these are things you will want to remember forever. I would love to be your St. Louis maternity photographer to help you capture this special time.

I want you to have a stress-free and fun maternity photo experience. My maternity clients have access to my client closet of carefully curated gowns, expert  planning and styling, and a session reveal to help choose your images and heirlooms. Hair and makeup is available. All my clients take home archival artwork to display in their home!

As a luxury maternity photographer, I take care of you every step of the way from planning your session to displaying your gorgeous portraits in your home. I can't wait to work with you to customize an amazing maternity session! 

Are you looking for a St. Louis newborn photographer, too? I'd love to help you plan both sessions!



Everything begins with a quick conversation!  I want to know all the details you are envisioning for your maternity photo session! We'll chat, see if we are a good fit, and schedule your planning consultation.

1. Say Hello

Next, we'll meet for a planning consultation. This will happen in the comfort of your own home or you may come to my studio. We'll get to know each other and plan your dream session!
You will have the opportunity to look through my client closet of designer gowns, flip through my curated collection of heirloom albums and folio boxes, and check out beautiful, archival wall art.

We will choose colors and location, plan outfits for everyone,  and start deciding how and where you would like to display your photos. This is when you will reserve your session date.

2. Planning Consultation

We will have a super fun, relaxed maternity photo session! We'll start with hair and makeup before taking photos of mom alone, mom and dad, and add in the whole family, if you'd like. I have snacks and drinks available in my studio, as well as toys to keep siblings busy.

Maternity sessions may take place at my studio or in locations around the St. Louis area.

3. Your Session

Now for the fun part! You'll come back in for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is when you will see your photos for the very first time and choose your heirlooms! 

4. Choose your heirlooms

So exciting! You will return in 4-6 weeks to view and pick up your artwork! Once everything has arrived and been hand inspected, I will contact you to set up your appointment.

Maternity Session


family Session


Right from the start Maggie made us feel extremely comfortable, was clear and direct and genuinely excited to take our photos! At the actual shoot she was relaxed but so professional and made us feel like naturals as she snapped our photos. The end product far exceeded our expectations and we absolutely LOVE the photos hanging on our walls. The quality of the photos are excellent!

My daughters and I had such an amazing time! Maggie was fabulous. So patient with my very energetic four year old and infant girls. She even had snacks and bubbles ready to keep the kids smiling! The finished photos captured my kids personalities and love for each other perfectly!! Maggie was so polite, accommodating and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
