History of Maternity Portraiture


December 22, 2011:
Susan is temporarily not doing any portrait work because of some medical issues with her hands that limit the amount of time she can work with her camera. Look for her return to maternity portraiture in the spring of 2012.

Scheduling Your Portrait Session

The best time for a maternity session is usually between 32 and 36 weeks (earlier if you are carrying twins or triplets). Depending on your needs and our schedule, we may be able to do a "last minute" work-in for moms-to-be who were too busy to find time for their portraits. Call 884-9488 to inquire.

The best time for newborns is while they are still in the "curly" stage, around 2 weeks. If we miss that particular time, we'll just do infant portraits, which most families want in addition to newborn portraits anyway.
