Portfolio – Maternity



Artistic, classic & elegant images, on location or in studio sessions, focused on the pregnant form.  I will focus on your pregnant form and the connection between you, your partner and your baby bump.  I love candid shots and will have a variety of posed & candid images.   Sessions are 1 hour and include 2 wardrobe changes.


Pre-session consultation in my studio or on the phone is done prior to booking your session.  A digital contract and invoice for retainer for services will be sent via email.  Sessions are scheduled after digital contract and retainer for services is received. Session fee is required to book your session.  Maternity sessions take place in my Troy, Michigan studio or outdoor location in Michigan (within 30 miles of studio is included) and is best between 32-36 weeks.   Booking at the beginning of your 2nd trimester is recommended to ensure availability.


I have a beautiful maternity gown wardrobe available in different styles, colors and sizes, as well as draping fabrics and crowns.  You may also wear your own gown to the session.  We will discuss and plan your wardrobe at your consultation.  In person consultations are recommended so you can see, and even try on the gowns you like.


It is strongly suggested that hair and make-up are done professionally.  Skin retouching including blemish removal and color correction may be applied and is included in your session. Extensive editing requests will be considered.  A soft proofed online gallery of images will be sent to you to view & order your images.  Final retouching will be applied to all images you choose.


 I would love to tell you more about the experience you will have with your session with Melissa Anne Photography!
