What to Expect: Christin's Maternity Sessions

Upon booking, we can get to discussing location and wardrobe! I have a small selection of gowns available, as well as some great recommendations for gown rentals if you have a specific look in mind. I love shooting maternity sessions in the golden hour, that sweet spot before sunset when the light is soft and glowing, even on a cloudy evening. Whether you choose ocean and beach, field, forest or mountain I have locations to suggest that the sunset works beautifully for, and are an easy walk.

When we meet for the session I can’t wait to hear all about your growing baby! We can go over any shots that you really want or don’t want, but I will give you guidance for posing throughout the session.

After our session, you will receive your gallery in two weeks. This timeline allows me to edit to my style and ensure that you get some time to enjoy the images before baby makes their way from inside to earthside.

Focal Photographer: Christin


As a mother of three, I understand how fast childhood can fly by! My three littles are my world, and the importance of motherhood, and that wild love like no other is what inspires me. My favourite is to capture all the love and moments that are important to your family. You have a legacy to build, let me help document it. Through creating connections in candid poses, bringing out genuine smiles, or delicately posing your new baby, my job is to guide you and help bring those true connections and moments to light.

Whether we are shooting at the ocean, a field or mountain, or in a forest, I am constantly chasing that beautiful light. Soft golden sunsets, or the wild west coast wind and drama, I will work with the elements to create beautiful portraits of your family. In studio I work within a calm and soothing environment and large soft box lighting, to achieve a lovely balance of shadow and highlights.

When we bring home a baby, we start counting in days, then weeks, then months, soon those months become years. We wish we could freeze time and the joy we share with our children, but years from now, your portraits will be what help you travel back in time to these moments again and again and again.

FAQ

  • I’m interested in photos, but I am so uncomfortable and don’t feel overly “pretty”, is it worth doing?

    YES. Motherhood is such an incredible journey, and even if you aren’t feeling like being in front of the camera, I promise to show you how beautiful you and your growing belly are. I have a lot of moms truly enjoy the experience because they have barely done their hair or makeup in their 3rd trimester, and it gives an opportunity to FEEL beautiful.

  • When is the best time to do maternity photos?

    The best time is between 32-36 weeks along. It really depends on how much of a belly you’d like in your images, but sometimes past 36 weeks it gets harder to move around and feel comfortable.

  • Can my partner and other children be in photos too?

    I love including your partner or older siblings in the photos! Those connections are so special, and we will be sure to show that.

  • What should I wear?

    We can have a consultation about wardrobe upon booking, but a variety of outfits can work great for maternity sessions! I have a small selection of flowy gowns available and can suggest some local rentals for other specific styles of dresses. If you don’t feel like wearing a dress I can happily suggest some ideas.
