I want this moment to be about you, Mama - capturing the wonder, the anticipation, the GLOW, and the transformation of your beautiful body. This time of your life is nothing short of amazing (and exhausting, I’m looking at you first trimester!) and I am here to document this intimate moment so that you can treasure it for a lifetime.
My Philadelphia Maternity photography sessions are designed to capture the beauty of pregnancy as you anxiously await the arrival of your little one! Together we will dream up a session that perfectly suits you! Whether in the studio for a timeless and classic (or even intimate) look or outdoors at a romantic location. Allow me to style and create a maternity session that will reflect the beauty and connection of this special time in your life. These portraits will allow you to one day reminisce and remember this miraculous time.
A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
I’m here at every step of the process, from the planning to the posing. I know it’s not often you are in front of a camera focused on just you, which is why I strive to make your session relaxed, and unforgettable! I will guide you every step of the way, tell you where to look, and yes, even what to do with your hands!
Maternity Sessions are held between 30-36 weeks pregnant. Signature Sessions include professional hair & makeup, studio wardrobe, and styling. When booking both a Maternity & Newborn session together, you can save on session fees and gain other perks. Learn more about my First Year Collective below.

Ashley has a real gift and I am so grateful that she shares it with us! Her pictures always turn out amazing! I cannot recommend her enough..
Don't know what wear for pictures? Tired of the dreaded returns? I have you covered, literally! My studio is home to my curated client wardrobe. Clients have access to utilize my beautiful wardrobe pieces to style Mom, babies, and children. You can now check another to do item. Finding the perfect outfits for pictures is on me ! After booking your session, you have the option to set up a wardrobe appointment with Ashley and she will walk you through all the options!
As a mom, I know we get everyone ready and then hurry to get ourselves ready as quickly as we can. Mamas, let my hair and makeup team pamper you the day of your session! Your hair and makeup will be taken care of, another item you can cross of your to- do! Also, I am very proud to say the hair and makeup artists I work with are professionally Covid-19 certified, meaning they follow all necessary beauty precautions to keep you safe!
About 2 weeks after your session, you will have your gallery reveal where I will show you your gallery of images! This can be done wither virtually or at the studio. Once you have seen your gallery, I will help you select the perfect products for your family, whether that be a beautiful wall gallery, a statement piece for above your mantle, or an album to showcase you art, Ashley helps turn your digital images into artwork you can cherish everyday in your home.
When you have a baby, you quickly realize your little one is continuously changing before your eyes. From the baby bump to birth, to smiling, sitting, standing and all the milestones in between capturing these special moments become even more valuable.
My First Year Collective Membership allows families to purchase either 3 or 4 sessions at once while saving money on their session fees as well as enjoying perks like complimentary birth announcements.
The First Year Membership highlights the big moments and milestones. The most popular milestones families like to capture during their membership are maternity, newborn, 6 month/sitting, and one year. I love having the opportunity to tell each baby's story over the course of one year. The best part, at the end of that year, you have a beautiful heirloom album commemorating your child’s growth!
It is best to book your Philadelphia maternity photography session between 30-36 weeks. We want to make sure your bump has popped, but you’re not far along enough where you are too uncomfortable to enjoy the session.
When is it best to book Maternity?
We will talk prior to your session and I will help guide you in your styling choices based on what you are envisioning. If you are borrowing from my wardrobe, we can set up a try-on appointment!
How will I know what to wear?
Absolutely! I both welcome and encourage this! I try to get a good variety of just you as well as a combination of you and your partner and children (if this isn’t your first baby).
Can my partner or family be in the pictures?
I sure do! The First-year Collective membership is a popular choice for the families I work with. The membership gives clients the opportunity to book more than one session at once, while saving money on session fees, as well as gaining other perks like complimentary birth announcements and $200 album credit per session.
Do you have a package for both maternity & newborn?
Yes, hair and makeup comes complimentary with all sessions. Being a Mom, I have been there, done that with maternity photos and know how hard it can be to get out the door while looking presentable. Pampering and fully serving my moms is something that I love to do throughout the process.
Is hair & makeup included?
Being a mom to four young kids, I get it. I know what it is like to be on the other side of the lens. I am very comfortable around kids and have some tricks up my sleeve to get your little ones to warm up to the camera. I never rush a session so we can take our time. I always aim for my sessions to be fun and stress free for both the parents and the kiddos!
What if my Kids don't cooperate?
For investment details and availability, please send a message via the form below. I do offer two different options for maternity sessions, both a full session and a simplicity session.
