Maternity Photography in Chicago

I am a Chicago Maternity photographer providing gorgeous outdoor scenic sessions for expecting families both downtown Chicago, and the surrounding western Suburbs.

My lighting is natural and so is my style. Because of my love for film and the soft stylized look, I edit my maternity sessions to represent this.

Maternity Photography is a special celebration of a beautiful time in you and your growing family’s life! I encourage my Maternity sessions to include both husband and wife. If you have children already, it’s also very important to include them as well!

Don’t hesitate on booking your Chicago Maternity Photographer early!

Your session will be scheduled between the 30th and the 34th week of your pregnancy. The 34th week is the most ideal week to photograph in. During this time you are still comfortable. Swelling is at a minimum during these weeks. And if we reschedule due to weather or schedule issues, we will still have time before your due date!

Chicago Locations for Maternity Photos

Photographing in downtown Chicago has its own rewards! There are a few great options that work well as scenic locations.

Lincoln Park Zoo has a beautiful boardwalk with water, skylines, and thick green foliage! The Garfield park conservatory has acres of indoor gardens  that provide amazing results year round. Montrose harbor and beach are perfect options for summer afternoon and evenings!

Begin your booking by letting me know if you are located either in downtown Chicago, or in the suburbs. This will help me guide you to the best locations nearest to you.

Modern Maternity Photography: Pregnancy Photography in Chicago

As people change, so does the photography that represents them. Because of the changes in today’s styles, maternity photography has taken on a whole new form and style.

While there are many great photography styles to offer, the simple and most elegant forms of photography will keep the longest. The most important thing to remember is that we need to focus on you in these special days leading up to birth.

I will do my best to direct you towards a timeless style that will give you results that will not fade or age over the years.

About me: A Chicago Maternity Photographer

I have found that there are two types of portrait sessions that I love to do here in Chicago! The first has been newborn, and the most recently and top favorite type of session to work on is the Maternity session.

I grew up in Chicago, found my love for photography before high school, but only took it seriously after entering college. In 2012 I began to photograph part time, and in 2015 I went full time! I haven’t looked back, and it has provided a way to meet new people, earn an income, and gives me the pleasure of completing work that I know I can be proud of, as well as take ownership of.
