enjoy this special time

timeless style

Your photos won't look drastically different than the way everything looked in real life. I seek out bright and colorful backgrounds, and find beautiful light that will make you really stand out!

you be you

We’ll take a mix of candid photos and photos that are more posed. The most important thing is to be yourself. It's simple, but so true! I’ll send you a questionnaire ahead of time that helps me get to know you.

The key to having natural, candid looking photos is movement. The best, most genuine moments happen with a little prompting from me + confidence from you. I'll keep you moving throughout the session, and we'll have a blast!

danielle, 2023 maternity photos

"Lauren was so great to work with for our maternity photos! It was the first time we have felt like ourselves taking photos which resulted in some of the best photos we have ever taken! I cannot recommend Lauren enough - she's professional, personable, and is able to bring out the best of you in photos. She also sends you tips for the day in advance so you feel very prepared for the shoot. We will be working with her again!"

I schedule photo sessions up to three months in advance. During some months my weekend availability is limited, so being open to a weekday or morning is great!

How far in advance should we book our session?

Most people like to schedule this session for when they'll be between 26-34 weeks pregnant. 

How far along should I be during the session?

Definitely! I'll send you a list of my favorite Austin area locations, and we'll go from there. I'm also open to hearing your ideas!

Could you help us choose a location?

You'll have preview photos the next day, and your full gallery will be ready just 10 days later.

When will we receive our photo gallery?

Your session includes the link to an online gallery of high-resolution digital files, not physical prints. You can print all of your photos, as many times as you'd like!

Do the packages include prints?
Can I print photos on my own?

Yes! I use a secure online system to take payments with a credit card or direct bank transfer.

Do you accept
credit cards?

A $150 non-refundable retainer saves your date + time on my calendar. The remaining amount is due one week before your session.

When is our final payment due?

Most people bring their partner along, and take some photos together and some alone. It's totally up to you whether you want to bring your kids or not. If you do, I suggest bringing an extra adult as a helper.

Do most women bring their partner and kids?
