What’s Included in This Investment:

  • What:  Includes a 45-minute maternity session at your choice of location.
  • Where:  Session may take place at an outdoor location of your choice in the Thurston County area (small travel fee for a further location), or it may be a lifestyle maternity session that takes place in your home, or the session may take place in my gorgeous downtown Olympia studio.  Should you choose multiple locations, travel time between locations does use a portion of your 45-min session time, so please keep this in mind.
  • Who:  Session can include spouse and children in a few images at no additional charge.
  • Discount:  To be eligible for the “discounted” rate (a $100 discount off the regular price), a newborn session must already be secured via a non-refundable retainer.
  • When:  Maternity sessions should ideally occur between 30-34 weeks gestation.  If you are having complications with your pregnancy that would require an earlier session, please discuss this with the photographer prior to booking.
  • How Many:  These 45-minute sessions typically yield between 20-30 final edited images.  Number of images can vary depending on number of outfit changes and location changes.
  • Digital Files:  You will receive these 20-30 final edited images (high-resolution) with printing rights.  You will be emailed a link to an online gallery where you can download your images directly to your computer at no additional charge.  If you do not own a computer or would prefer not to download the images yourself, then a CD/USB can be mailed to you for a small additional charge.
  • Professional Print:  You will receive 1 complimentary professional print that will be shipped to your home directly from my professional printing lab.  You may choose either a 5×7 -or- an 8×10 for this complimentary print.
  • You will have the option of ordering additional high-quality prints from my professional lab, which can be done from the online gallery you will receive.  This is not required, however it is highly recommended.
  • Gowns/Dresses Available:  I have several gorgeous maternity gowns and accessories that are available for use during your session if you so desire.  They stretch and fit most sizes.  If you are interested in seeing the dresses I have to offer I will send you a link to a gallery of images showcasing these different gowns and accessories.
  • The photographer’s travel is included within 20-minutes of Olympia/Lacey.  If the location of your choice or your home is further away please discuss this with me ahead of time as there will be a small additional travel fee that we will agree upon ahead of time.
  • $150 is required down at booking as a NON-refundable booking fee/retainer.  This booking fee/retainer guarantees your desired day/time on my calendar and will not be refunded upon cancellation.  Booking fees/retainers will be paid via PayPal (no fee).
  • The remaining balance is due on the day of your session via cash or a check.
  • Newborn Sessions: Please see the separate section on “newborn sessions” to determine which type of newborn session you would like to book in order to be eligible for the discounted maternity rate.
