Maternity Photoshoots for Expecting Pittsburgh Families

A maternity photoshoot is perfect if you want to document the special time right before you welcome a new baby. The photos capture the beauty of your growing bump and possibly the last few moments before your first babies become big sisters and big brothers.

Beyond the Bump

Fresh 48 PHOTOS

Fresh 48 sessions are done in the hospital within the first
48 hours of baby’s arrival. These sessions are intended to capture the rawness and beauty of your new baby.

Newborn PHOTOS

Newborn sessions record the beauty of those first few weeks with your new baby. With a lifestyle approach, we don’t worry about posing but focus on recording the feelings of the moments.

Newborn FILMS

A newborn film records the moments as you get to know your new baby.  These films are incredibly special and emotional as they give you the ability to relive the moments that pass quickly.

Got Questions?

Everything you need to book your next maternity photo session with Danielle with confidence.

I typically recommend maternity sessions to be held between 33 and 36 weeks depending on mom’s comfort. We want a cute baby bump but do not want her to be uncomfortable.

I do not have a client closet but I have an extensive list of places to shop for a beautiful maternity dress that will help you feel beautiful and confident for your photoshoot.

Absolutely! Our fur babies are family too and they are more than welcome to join you whether it’s an on-location family photoshoot or an in-home session. If we are on-location, I usually just have to confirm that dogs are permitted but in most cases they are. If you can, sometimes it helps to enlist a friend or family member to assist!

Yes! I will usually help erase or minimize any non-permanent marks as needed. This could include acne that snuck up, a scratch or dry skin. In most cases, it’s a simple retouch and it’s included with your session. In the event of the need for more advanced editing, I’ll chat with you about retouching options for you to decide.

I understand that curveballs come all the time. In the event of bad weather or an unforeseen circumstance that
conflicts with your scheduled photo session, I am happy to reschedule!

The ideal time for photos is during golden hour. This occurs 1-2 hours prior to the sun setting. This time of day will give us the prettiest light. I understand however this might not be ideal for little ones. In this case we can easily move to a morning session or move up the start time. Happy kiddos are much more important than the perfect time!

All sessions will get photos within 2 weeks from the session date. If you sign the model release and approve, you will get a link to your sneak peek blog post within 3 days after your session. The sneak peek includes 5-7 favorite photos from your session. You can share this on social media or share the link with friends and family. Your gallery will be delivered via email and where you can download your full gallery with one click.

Yes, of course. I offer an easy and convenient way to order directly from your gallery. I offer high-quality, affordable, quality prints, enlargements, canvases and other items. These items are printed at a professional photo lab that I highly recommend.

Regardless of where you choose to print your images, I encourage you to not only print them and enjoy them but be sure to use a professional lab. Please do not use retail locations such as Walgreens or Walmart as their machines are not consistently calibrated to produce professional quality images.

These are your photos. If you want to keep them private and not shown on social media, I fully understand and respect that. During the booking process, you will find a model release. You can decline to share and I will honor your request.

I'd go back to those days in a heartbeat.

There is so much wonder and excitement when you are waiting for your new baby to arrive. I know pregnancy doesn’t always feel glamorous but the miracle of it all is just beautiful. I truly believe moms glow during this season of life and I love helping to record this special time. As a momma with two growing kiddos, I would go back to this season of life in a heartbeat.
