How would you like to be photographed for your maternity photos?
This could be you, too! These are everyday women who trusted us to document their pregnancy. All the women below have granted us their permission to share their experience so that other women, like them, can see just some of the many ways we photograph our clients. Read on to learn more about our luxury Orange County maternity photography sessions in San Clemente. Traveling from out of town? We have plenty of suggestions on things to do and places to stay nearby. Check out our post about it here: The Orange County Boudoir Guide.
Now, let’s capture your dream belly pics!
What to expect when you want to book your maternity photoshoot…
After you submit the contact form, we’ll reach out within 48 hours (typically much sooner) to schedule a quick and free consult info call to learn more about you and your vision for your session. We’ll go over available dates, answer your questions, and book you in for your photoshoot!
After you’re booked in for your session, you’ll receive our preparation magazine, the bonus guide, and you’ll receive more information about session styles available to you. You’ll have the option to pick out a collection that best matches what you’re interested in.
This is the fun part! Your session will take place in either our San Clemente Photography Studio or an alternative location, such as your home the beach, or an offsite studio location if you are outside of the Orange County area. You’ll be pampered by our professional hair and makeup artist and guided through your own 60-90 minute custom maternity photoshoot.
The Same Day Reveal
The same day reveal allows you to see your images on the same day they are taken! After your session, you’ll go on a quick lunch or stroll down to the beach. In the meantime, I’ll sort and edit your photos so that you can pick out your favorites when you return! No need to come back out for a separate ordering appointment.

The Maternity Portrait Movement Experience in Orange County
Our studio is going to be photographing 22 expectant mamas during the year of 2023, specifically for the Maternity Movement Project.
I will be creating stunning magazine-style portraits of each mother-to-be, then interviewing them at the end of the photoshoot to find out more about their lives and their excitement about being a mom.
These images and stories will be shared on our social media and will be used to create a beautiful art-gallery style exhibition and celebration held later in 2023.
The cost to participate is $399 + tax and includes:
The Folio Box
The Folio Box is an absolute favorite for my Orange County maternity photography clients! Many love to share their images from their photoshoot on their mantel, dresser, or bookshelf. Every image purchased comes with the digital image, is matted with museum-quality archival matted prints, and can be displayed in the Reveal Folio Box (the windowed box with changeable prints), the Wood Reveal Folio Box, and the Legacy Fine Art printed folio box.
Prints can also be displayed in Albums, large wall art, the 9-UP matted image wall art, or loose in a glass box. Pricing is simple: $250 per image with discounts as you add. Build your own box and add on in the future if you decide to come back for a mommy and me session!
