Cara is awesome. She is so wonderful and energetic and up for anything. She is also so kind and easy to talk to, which made the session very relaxing.  Cara really did an impressive job capturing our spirits.

The weeks right before your baby comes are such a magical time.  You will never be this pregnant with this child ever again.  It might not feel like it now, but someday, you will scarcely be able to remember what it was like to carry a child in your belly.  Without a photograph, you might struggle to remember how you looked.

The maternity images I create celebrate the power of the female body, focus on the beauty of the physical changes and highlight the love you share with your family.


Maternity sessions can take place in the comfort of your home with your spouse/children/pets or at a favorite outdoor location…or a little bit of both.  In addition to capturing candid shots of you with your family, I love to create outdoor maternity portraits that convey the strength, grace, and beauty of being a mother.


I recommend scheduling your session between 30-36 weeks to ensure your belly is showing nicely but you are not too uncomfortable or close to delivering.  You are free to make outfit changes during your session, if you’d like.  I suggest wearing a top or dress that fits snugly, in order to show off your belly’s shape — a tight fitting black dress is always a classic look.   Solid bold colors work beautifully outdoors as well.


A pre-session consultation via phone is included in your session fee, during which we can discuss location, wardrobe and your vision for the session.  Take a peek at some recent maternity sessions on my blog or get in touch to schedule your maternity session!


The maternity session fee is $350 and the session will last about an hour.  Prints, products and digital files are purchased separately. Within about 3 weeks of your session you will receive a link to an online viewing gallery which will contain approximately 30-40 unique images edited in color & black and white.  An optional in person consultation can be scheduled at your convenience to view product samples and design wall galleries or make decisions about print purchases.


Document your journey from pregnancy through birth with a Belly to Birth package ($1275). Package includes one maternity session, one in home newborn session and one 10×10 custom designed coffee table album with 20 pages – enough to hold 30-40 images. Prints and digital files are purchased separately.

Orchard in Bloom | Needham Maternity Photographer

Spring is the season of growing and I loved that we were able to have this sunset maternity session at a local apple orchard in full bloom!  (How apropos!)

I’m so lucky to call this beautiful mama-to-be my friend and neighbor — and she makes a pretty amazing maternity model, too!  We had so much fun running around the apple orchard finding all the most amazing spots for pictures and staying until the sun dropped below the horizon.  This session truly was
