maternity & newborn portraiture at studio illume

celebrate the beauty of new life with

collections begin at 500

Come and join me in making art from the beautiful phase of life you're in! For expecting mommas and brand new baby girls, we can create a lovely arrangement of flowers to provide a feminine backdrop to your photographs. Baby boys can be surrounded by greenery or simply snug in their momma or dad's arms. There are hand-painted canvas backdrops to choose from or a more simple white wall. With an artful, yet lifestyle approach we include each member of the family; mom, dad, baby, and any siblings. There will be some posing, but you will also have the chance to be photographed enjoying being together as a family.

Collections include combinations of the following

  • maternity session
  • newborn session
  • milestone sessions
  • access to the Studio Illume client closet for mom  & baby
  • flowers or greenery for in-session use
  • heirloom albums
  • digital galleries to download your photographs
  • printed products

the Client Closet

Send me the information about what type of session or sessions you are interested in. My response will include a collection guide so you can look over the collection options that I offer. If you don't see what you're looking for, let me know! I would be happy to put together a custom collection. 


Once you have looked over the collection guide I've sent you and we have confirmed I am available for your date, we set up a phone consultation. This is where we discuss your hopes for your session and what's most important to you. We can discuss how best to achieve the photographs, whether that includes a hand-painted fine art backdrop, flowers, greenery, etc.

So, you've made the decision! You want to book your session. The first step is to decide on a date. Maternity sessions work best in your third trimester, and newborn sessions within the first couple weeks after your baby's birth. In order to be officially booked, I require a signed contract and 50% retainer. Everything is done online, which really simplifies the process! 


After we plan details for your session and you officially book, the next step is to schedule a date to try on dresses from the client closet. This is typically done fairly close to your session so that sizing remains consistent (because mommas can change SO much towards the end of their pregnancy and postpartum!). The dresses are sizes XS-XXL for mom and up to 2T for littles.

Final payment is due the week of your session, but you can pay anytime leading up to your session. Then you are all set!

Galleries are delivered within 3 weeks of your session. Photographs will be edited and retouched for blemishes and dry baby skin.


After the delivery of your digital gallery, there will be two weeks until the delivery of your album design. Upon delivery, note any changes you would like made and the cover fabric choice. Covers come in linen fabric or leather. Albums take 4-6 weeks to deliver from the time of design confirmation.
