Twin cities studio maternity session

Minneapolis/St. Paul Studio Maternity Shoot

Maternity sessions are some of my very favorite to shoot. Lately I’ve had a bunch of second time mamas doing studio maternity sessions in a row and I think it’s so special- second babe is sometimes just along for the ride, especially with a toddler sibling… taking a minute just to connect with your baby, and document it is so meaningful.

Here are some of my most frequent FAQs about maternity shoots:

Maternity sessions should take place somewhere between 30-36 weeks. At the beginning of your third trimester is the ideal time. This way we have time to reschedule due to weather or sickness if you’re having a rough pregnancy. Your belly will also be showing beautifully and you haven’t quite hit the uncomfortable stage yet! If you are having multiples or have any complications throughout your pregnancy then adjustments to this time frame should be made.

Depending on our season here in Minnesota, I will offer the session either outdoors or indoors. I have a variety of locations I like to shoot at, and a beautiful sun filled studio for the winter!
