When to do maternity photos

As soon as you see a bump. Many photographers might be more specific, but I have photographed pregnant women at all stages of pregnancy and I can tell you t hat it truly doesn't matter when. Just as a newborn is ideally photographed within 2 weeks of birth, but again it doesn't really matter. All moments are worth photographing.

But if you would like the perfect window for a maternity session, I suggest around 30 weeks as a beautiful sweet spot.

Why have a maternity session?

I will be honest with you, I didn't want maternity photos when I was pregnant and not getting them done each time is a big regret. Now that I am a photographer and photograph multiple genres, my absolute favorite is maternity. There is something so uniquely special about this time. It's just as precious as any other moment in your child's life. If I could go back in time not only would I make sure to have a maternity session, I would do it big!

A note from Ashley

Hello and thank you so much for checking out my work! I hope you enjoyed the images from my maternity sessions in Connecticut.

I have a beautifully simple and bright studio in Westbrook Connecticut, but I also travel to my client’s homes or meet families on location to create beautiful artwork from their images. 

If you want to see more of my work, please browse the Gallery of Work tab and mention your favorites.

As a mom of three boys, I know these moments are fleeting. Photography is the only way to capture these moments in time and that’s my ultimate goal with my clients. The portraits of my children are priceless. 

If you would like more information about a session, please fill out the contact form on my website and I will personally email or text you back within two business days. My studio is a short drive for anyone living in Fairfield, Hartford, Middlesex, New London, or New Haven Counties. I also travel throughout the state of Connecticut and Rhode Island.
