The Maternity Experience

Whether it's your first pregnancy or your 5th, let's celebrate your body and the work it's doing to grow new life. We'll create beautiful heirloom artwork that you'll be able to look back on to remember this special time. You have a partner in planning your bay area maternity portrait session so that your images turn out just how you envision. From planning the location and wardrobe, to hanging your artwork in your home, everything will be one seamless process.

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 session fee. 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. We'll also plan out your artwork - you'll have sent me pictures of your walls so I can show you what different gallery wall arrangements will look like. (After your session, I'll be able to show you just how your images will look in those arrangements!)

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.

4. Your Photo Sesssion

The most exciting part of the process is your gallery reveal! You'll get to see what you images look like on your very own walls, and I'll even show you how they'll look in an album. For this part, we'll either meet over Zoom or in person (for homes in the South Bay Area), and you'll finalize your order since you'll have me there to show you what will images will look best in the products that you've decided on.

Best of all, once your artwork arrives, I'll deliver it AND INSTALL IT in your home! My clients love that part!

She came to our house and was able to transform different rooms to maximize the light and capture beautiful photos. She also brought samples and different products she offers to help with ordering. I am so in love with all our photos and my canvas.

One of the best services offered by Laura Michele Photography, aside from being able to capture beautiful images, and set us entirely at ease by creating a fun and relaxing environment, is the great service after the session. Following the session, we were taken on a journey of our photoshoot through a beautiful slideshow and then patiently guided through the process of creating a family photo wall of art, choosing the best fit for our space. Once our wall was designed and images were ordered, Laura personally delivered and hung our wall art for us! Such fantastic service.

Laura was recommended to us for newborn pics and I’m so thankful for our experience with her! It was important for me to have newborn pics in our home for comfort and Laura did an amazing job working within our home. She was so gentle and patient with our little one. With Laura, it felt like we just had a friend loving on our baby and I couldn’t be more pleased! You need to hire her.

Laura’s service and product was amazing from the beginning to the end. We are so amazed by her talent of capturing the moment. 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. So now we have 3 large canvas photos of us. 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. She is in constant communication and she has a really fast turn around! I was so impressed! Thank you Laura!!!
