Half moon bay maternity session
Coming from out of town, Lizzy fell in love with our rugged coastline. It was important to her that for her session, we not only capture the connection with her husband and their love for their baby, but also the gorgeous scenery that defines our northern california coast.
natural bridges maternity photography
Esha knew she wanted to have her maternity portraits at the beach. Natural bridges is one of our most picturesque beaches, so that was the location we chose. Our summer beach weather can often be cloudy, and the day of her session was no exception. Overcast skies don't detract from the beauty of her session at all!
A summer beach session
Our summer beaches can be unpredictable, and there's a good likelihood they'll be at least some marine layer at your session. The good news is that your portraits will turn out beautifully regardless! Click through to see the beauty of a maternity portrait session with a heavy marine layer.

It's so exciting to talk to families who are expecting a baby! Whether it's your first baby or there are siblings who will be a part of the session, it's always a special time. Once you fill out my contact form, I'll be in touch soon. The more details you provide, the better!
1. Say Hello
2. Schedule it
Once we find a date that works for both of us (the best time to schedule is between 32 & 36 weeks of pregnancy), I'll send you a contract and invoice for your retainer. Your session date and time are secured once the contract is signed and the session fee is paid.
A few weeks before your session, we'll meet (usually over Zoom) to plan all the details of your session. From location, to wardrobe, to timing, we'll knock out all of the details together. This meeting is so helpful to make sure we're on the same page and prevent so many back-and-forth emails.
3. ask me Anything
On the day of your session, we'll meet at the planned location and time. Some people are more comfortable in front of my camera than others, but take comfort knowing that however you feel, I'll help you with prompts and poses to look your best. If children are a part of the session, I make it very playful so that they can have fun too, and we can get those natural smiles. I completely expect your kids to act their ages, so I do my very best to make it playful with silly games!
4. Your Photo Sesssion
The most exciting part of the process is your gallery reveal! You'll receive an online gallery with a slideshow to view all of your beautiful images. From here, you'll make your selections, and you can download your purchased digital images right to your computer. You'll even be able to order wall art, albums and prints directly from your gallery! I'm here to help if you need any assistance with the design!
5. your Gallery Reveal
Digital packages start at just $1000
To book a session, a $300 retainer and signed contract are required. You'll order your digital images, prints and products after you view your images in your online gallery about two weeks after your session. Your retainer will be put towards your purchase. Please inquire for detailed pricing information.
She can do it all and makes taking photographs a fun and memorable experience (even when your newborn won’t sleep or your toddler doesn’t want to take photos). Laura is so patient and kind and makes you feel so comfortable while taking your picture. Her new photobook and canvas offerings are also beautiful and of such high quality. I just cannot recommend Laura enough!
maternity, newborn and family sessions
Laura was also great at calming my baby down! She handled my daughter as if she was family, super sweet and loving! Thank you Laura for such a great experience!
Laura made the whole process so easy. She met us there and knew of some places there with great trees and light that we walked to before doing pictures on the beach. She knew the perfect time to be there to get the perfect light. She was wonderful with my 6 and 8 year old boys. She was also very helpful with outfit ideas and poses. We got our pictures recently and they are amazing! I would highly recommend Laura!
The whole process was seamless. After selecting a date and location, Laura sent over some links on outfit ideas that she thought would work well with our location. She also took the time to get to know details about my children before the session so she could easily engage with them. The day of the session, she offered suggestions for different poses, but also fed off the energy of my two little kids.
Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. One important service that makes her business stand out is that she helps you to setup the photos at your home. She helps to design your wall with recommendations of print sizes. If this service wasn’t provided I’m not sure how long it would take for us to take the time to print out the pictures let alone figure out what to print. She really takes care of you from the beginning to the end.
