Maternity and newborn portraits allow you to preserve this moment for your child. Allow them into your world so they can see the very start of their life story. Let them see their magical beginning.
Document your journey so when your baby grows up and asks you what this time was like, you can point to your maternity pictures and whisper “I was carrying you inside me when that photograph was taken.”
And your child will smile and say, "Tell me the story again...the one where you felt me kick for the first time."
Anyone can take photos nowadays, right? But it takes a special kind of photographer to truly capture you with your curvy new body, your family, and your sweet new babe in a unique artistic manner.
Only an experienced (25+ years) photographer, like myself has worked out all the steps to a successful family session. I know how to work my fancy camera in all kinds of situations, have a secret sauce method to ensure that everyone (yes, even Dad-to-be!) has a blast and all the while making sure you look like the goddess that you are.
Making authentic moments happen during a photo shoot is one of the hardest parts of being a lifestyle photographer, but after 9 years as a family photographer, I got it figured out. I’ll tell you my secret…..
…..These heartfelt moments don’t always happen when you want them to…or in the “in between” moments like some photographers claim. I believe in creating the moments.
Instead of telling you to “act natural” and just hope something interesting happens, I’ll give you specific directions. You’ll know what to do, where to stand and how to act and we'll mix this up with movement, prompts and even games if you have children. This creates natural and fun poses.
My job as a photographer is to make you look and feel amazing during your photo session. To capture all the love and excitement of this memorial time. Then mama-to-be can put on her comfy clothes, kick her legs up and eat chocolate for the rest of the day! You will be so happy that you moved past your discomfort, sleep deprivation and doubts!

"Previous family portraits were rather stressful for us as the photographers made us feel rushed and tense. Linnae, on the other hand, was very laid back, took her time, and sincerely put forth an effort to capture the best shots of our family and my bulging belly."
"With a newborn and two young children, getting good portraits can be difficult at times but she made it fun and relaxing. Linnae was very informative of what we could expect prior to our appointment and continuously reassuring us that we could relax and allow our kids to be kids."
