Maternity Photography FAQs


As a Dallas Maternity Photographer, we provide in-studio maternity photography sessions conveniently located in North Dallas. Our services include professional hair and makeup to ensure you look your best, and we offer a selection of elegant maternity dresses to choose from. Leave it to us to capture your special moments with style and comfort.

When should I book my maternity session?

The best time to take maternity photos is when you are between 28–34 weeks. By 28 weeks you should be showing a nice round bump, but you won't be quite "full term" size. It is the best window of time because you will be at the end of your 2nd trimester / beginning of your 3rd, so you will likely still be feeling pretty good. By 34 weeks, you are at risk of early labor or may be ordered to be on bed rest by your doctor. It's never a good idea to wait until the last minute to plan your maternity photos as it is unclear how your birth story will play out.

Do you offer professional hair and makeup services?

Yes we do! We work with a few local area hair and makeup artists experienced with studio portraiture. You may add on these services with your session fee for an additional $200.

I'm really awkward in front of the camera, and I'm really not feeling it with the way I look lately. I don't know if professional photos are for me.

Between the magic of professional hair and makeup artistry, a beautiful gown, professional camera angles and your radiant cheeks, we will make certain that every shot is carefully crafted to be the most flattering version of you. These photos are more than just a "maternity session" - It's about creating everlasting memories of this season of your life. It's a wonderful way to honor the journey of parenthood in anticipation of the new life to come. 

What should I budget for photography?

Create-A-Collection begins at $1650 and digital-only collections begin at $1350. Building your own collection has its benefits because you buy only what you love! Depending on your choices, you should budget anywhere from 2-6K for a complete collection with an album and digital files.

I just want digital files and don't need any prints. Can I just buy that?

Yes, you may choose a digital only collection rather than Create-A-Collection. You will make your selections and purchase only the ones you love. Begins at $1350.

I would like to do my session outdoors. Do you offer that?

Yes, Outdoor sessions are available upon request. They may not be available in June, July or August depending on heat index. Indoor studio sessions are always available.

How it works

The creative fee is paid at the time of booking your session. If you are booking in advance, this allows you to secure a day in my calendar when you are between 28-34 weeks for a maternity session or 1-2 weeks within your due date for a newborn session. No products or digital files are included in the creative fee. There are 2 options for obtaining prints and digital files; Create-A-Collection OR Digital only. 

* Ideally, we schedule maternity sessions when mom is between 28-34 weeks. Newborn sessions are scheduled according to the due date.
