Maternity Photography

The Photographer’s Soul

Maternity Photography

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for.”


… And as a father of three, grand father of seven, and particularly as a photographer I believe that maternity photography is a wonderful media to record the moment and tell the story of a child’s beginning and the mother’s journey. And when done well, framed on the wall or printed in a luxury album becomes a valuable heirloom and keepsake.

Maternity Photography

I had a hard time finding an inspirational quote on maternity photography that I felt was universal and actually “inspirational”. (Google maternity and you’ll find a lot of political or corporate stuff. ) However I think the quote above is a decent beginning. We could add a few more things and I’m inviting you to leave your suggestions in the comment box below.

I did consult for my own clarification between maternity and pregnancy and here’s what I found.

  • Maternity: noun – the state of being a mother; motherhood.
    adjective – of, relating to, or for the period in which a woman is pregnant or has just given birth to a child.
  • Pregnancy: noun – the state, condition, or quality of being pregnant.

So technically, the work I do in this field should be called pregnancy photography. Either way, every woman has a story. The question is, “will it be recorded for posterity sake?”


For maternity or boudoir, I rely on my experience in fashion and with figure models to create the rapport with my clients, and direct them for posing. I always meet before hand to discuss wardrobe and plan the images we intend to make.

That said, I have one gallery of maternity (or pregnancy) photos to share with you at the moment. Please enjoy them here.
