Myrtle Beach Maternity Portraits

Let's capture the magic of motherhood

My biggest regret as a Mom is not having maternity portraits taken when I was pregnant with my first baby. I was tired, I was sore, and I felt less than beautiful. But looking back I so wish that I had captured that time in my life. 

More importantly, I wish I had those photos to show my daughter when she's grown... what an incredible gift it is for our children to see photos of their mother as they were resting comfortably below your heart. 

Mama... you are stunning. And you are about to start the greatest adventure of your life. Let's celebrate that!!

Studio

A brand new, one of a kind studio portrait experience that you won't find anywhere else. Celebrate how amazing you are with a Goddess Session! 

On Location

Here you'll find some of my favorite outdoor sessions. While there are many beautiful locations in the area, most clients opt for our signature sunset beach portraits. 

“When a woman is pregnant she becomes a lioness with the will of a dragon. She becomes a goddess of beauty with the colors of the rainbow.  

She becomes the mother of new life.”

– Anthony T. Hincks

Goddess Maternity Sessions

A one of a kind portrait experience designed to celebrate the goddess you are

What an honor and a privilege it is to be able to participate in creation. Your body is doing incredible things right now, and that is something that deserves to be celebrated! 

Goddess sessions are different from the typical beach photos because these sessions take place in my Murrells Inlet portrait studio and focus entirely on YOU. Beautiful, magnificent you. You're welcome to bring a gown from home or you can choose something from my always-growing client closet that includes maternity gowns in various colors and fabrics. Your partner is, of course, welcome to join in for a few poses as well. 

We'll discuss colors and styling prior to your session so that on the big day all you have to do is show up, dress up and look amazing! 

Frequently Asked Questions

• How soon should we book?
Because I only take a limited number of due dates per month I recommend booking early in your second trimester. 

• When is the best time for maternity portraits?
Sessions are best done between 30-35 weeks. First time Moms tend to "pop" a little later so I recommend waiting until at least 32 weeks. We'll also want to take the time of year into account with timing for outdoor sessions, as the summer months can get very hot and we don't want Mom to overheat or swell by pushing the session too late into the pregnancy. 

• Can my family join in the session?
Parents and siblings are always welcome to attend! While the majority of the session is focused on capturing the Mom-to-be and her beautiful baby bump, we will also be sure to include some portraits with your partner and children.

Beach sessions are the best option for family images that include a toddler or multiple siblings, while studio sessions are great for just portraits of the couple and an image or two with a single child. Studio sessions also include access to my always-growing client closet.

• Do you retouch the images?
All of my images are edited for color, lighting and quality. Outdoor sessions get minimal retouching, background cleanup and body shaping. Studio session are glamor edits, so they will receive extra skin softening and artistic enhancements.
