Start by reaching out to me. You can visit my website and fill out the contact form, send me an email, or simply give me a call. I'm here to assist you every step of the way. I'm here to answer any questions you may have. 

1. Say Hello

Once you've contacted me, we'll schedule a consultation. During this chat, I'll get to know you and your vision for your newborn baby's photo shoot. We'll discuss your specific photography needs, such as the type of session you're interested in, your preferred date and time, and any special requests you may have.

2. Schedule it

To officially secure your maternity session date, I'll prepare a contract that outlines all the essential terms and conditions. This will cover the contract, session date & time, and other important details. As part of this step, I'll request a session retainer which we offer various payment methods for your convenience. Before the session day, I'll provide you with a handy preparation guide. This will give you tips on what to wear, details about the location, and any special instructions to ensure that your photo session goes smoothly and is filled with happy moments.

3. Planning it

On the day of the session, I'll be fully equipped and ready when you arrive at the studio. My aim is to capture those extraordinary and heartwarming moments. I'm experienced in ensuring both you and and/or your partner feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the session.

Everything that is setup for your maternity  photo session is designed around the color scheme and options you choose prior to the session.

4. Your Session

About one week after the session, we will meet again in person or by zoom to go through your beautiful gallery.  I am here to help guide you with the best products and prints that suit you and your family. Once you've made your selections and choose the products that you would like to purchase we will submit your order to my lab. 

5. Your Photographs

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal. After the session, I'll request your feedback to help us continue improving our services. I'll also follow up with you to ensure you're delighted with the results and to address any questions or concerns you may have. Your joy is my top priority! I'm here to make your maternity photography experience seamless, enjoyable, and full of lasting memories. If you have any questions or need further assistance at any point in the process, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're looking forward to capturing those beautiful moments with you!

The Maternity Process

Beautiful & fun sessions that
result in artwork on your walls


When I saw her work I knew she was exactly who I wanted to do my maternity pictures! She’s very kind & accommodating. I didn’t feel rushed as I was 9 months pregnant trying to switch outfits as well as change poses. She also made sure to have a variety of snacks that I was able to indulge in between setups while I took a break. My boyfriend & I highly recommend her as we both are extremely pleased with our photos!

We searched for a long time to find someone to do our maternity and newborn pictures for our rainbow babygirl and we are so happy we found Melinda!! She was so nice and sweet and made sure we got all the shots we wanted for our family and she even gifted us the cutest hat for our baby with her name on it for her shoot! We have a beautiful collection of photos that we will cherish forever all thanks to her!

Trishstan & Jai

We had the pleasure of working with Ms. Melinda for both my maternity and my baby’s newborn shoot. Everything was perfect. She takes care of you and your family’s every need. We were running late and I needed to curl my hair once I got there and she even curled my hair for me! I was so spoiled I did not have to bring anything. Literally she provided the clothing, the music, snacks, drinks, & most of all an amazing personality to help you loosen up in front of the camera. For our newborn shoot, all that I had to do was hand her my baby and she took over from there. A 2-3 hour break that we needed so much as new parents. I will never forget the moments we shared in the studio. Working with Ms. Melinda meant the world to me. Thank you so much for everything.
