I love capturing a wide variety of maternity pictures in Kansas City to capture your story in this season of your life. My goal is to not only create a fun and relaxing experience as you celebrate with your family but to create a session that truly captures your story and the memories you are making with your family during this session and season of life.

5 Must have Photos For Your Maternity Pictures In Kansas City

Not all of these photos will reflect your pregnancy journey, but here are 5 photos I typically do with each of my clients when applicable.  The best part about working with a professional photographer is they will create their session flow and capture photos that are important to YOUR pregnancy journey.

1. Solo

I love capturing photos of a mom by herself reflecting on her pregnancy and the life she will live with her baby. Every mama’s experience is different.  This is a way to capture the beginning of your motherhood journey— your strength that gets you through these months, the memories of this short, incredible time of growing another human, the love you have for your little one, and that unique feeling of becoming a mother.

2. With Your Partner

Pregnancy is such a big milestone in your and your partner’s love story! Capturing moments of you together enjoying the moment and taking a breath together as you enjoy the moment is a perfect way to remember your pregnancy.  Your love story is so unique and special, and I love capturing that for clients!  I will be focused on capturing not only your bump but the joy you and your partner are feeling as you get ready to welcome your child into the world together.

3. Belly Photo

What would a maternity session be without a bump photo?  There are so many beautiful and artistic ways to capture your bump. Every mama’s bump is different, big, small, or maybe even stretchmarks, But capturing your bump can be a beautiful memory that one often forgets.

4. Focus On Dad

Most of your maternity sessions will be focused on you and your bump, but dads deserve a special highlight too!  I love capturing photos of dads cuddling up to you and your bump as they take a moment to reflect on becoming a dad.
