The Beauty of Intimate Maternity Photography

Intimate Maternity Photography in the Hudson Valley

What you need to know about these sessions


Intimate maternity photography is a genre I stepped into over this past year. I am thrilled at the response. So many beautiful women have trusted me with their maternity stories. They have fallen in love with the natural, personal, and raw way in which we document pregnancy. Your body and connection is on full display. Are these sessions the right choice for you?

These sessions aren’t a one size fits all approach. This is why with each woman I work with, I schedule a call about a week before your session to go over your comfort level with posing, locations, and outfits. These can be whatever you want them to be! Some women love the natural, everyday life look- no props, clean and minimal. For other women, we add accents such as flowers, bathtubs, and candles. There is no right or wrong way to do it!

For styling, it is personal and completely up to you with what you are comfortable with! The commonality is that your belly will be bare. Some women choose a bra/ underwear set, some choose topless, and others opt for a button down t-shirt over bra look. Whatever you choose, I provide my best suggestions on what to wear that will highlight and flatter your body and belly.

Another question I often get is if partners should be included. Again, I leave this up to you! Some couples feel comfortable expressing their connection on camera in this intimate way, and some women choose solo intimate shots. It is about what is best for you. I also offer combination intimate/ traditional sessions, which allows couples the best of both worlds.

If you find yourself curious to hear more, and would like more info, I’d love to chat with you!



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.
