Outdoor Natural Maternity Photography in the Hudson Valley


Hudson Valley Lifestyle Family and Newborn Photographer

Everything the Expecting Mama Needs To Know

Whether it is your first baby or your fourth, there is something so very magical about pregnancy. For me personally, pregnancy wasn’t always smooth. I am a type 1 diabetic, so was classified as “high risk.” It meant more appointments, more ultrasounds, and well, a lot of anxiety! Even as my discomforts mounted as I got closer to the big day, I also always felt this unique sense of privilege that I was able to grow, carry, and birth my baby. It is incredibly empowering and beautiful. So, regardless of how your pregnancy is going, I truly believe it is worth documenting and remembering. Remembering just how much your body changed to support this new life.

My approach to maternity photography is similar to how I run my other sessions. I love to incorporate beautiful and scenic locations, emotive posing, and precious details to help you document this very special time. Each session is unique to the mother; and before we have our session, I will send you a questionnaire to help me learn more about your family and your needs for your photographs. Have ideas of must have shots? This is your opportunity to tell me all of your thoughts, so that I can better tailor the session to you. While I do pose lightly, I also like to let the session naturally unfold to see where it goes. After all, this is YOUR story, and only yours!

If you may be interested in documenting your pregnancy journey, I would love to work with you. Please reach out and say hello! And if you may be interested in newborn photographs, please inquire about my special collection which includes both a maternity and one of my custom newborn at home sessions.



I wholeheartedly believe in the power of authentic documentation. Our stories and truths are not only a gift for ourselves, but also through the generations, becoming treasured keepsakes as proof of our place and time. My passion lies in storytelling that focuses on your present moments. Whether our adventures take us deep into the Hudson Valley, high in the Catskill Mountains, or within the comfort of your home, it is always about where you are meant to be and where you feel the most alive.
