The biggest regret I hear from moms is that they did NOT have a maternity portrait created! You quickly forget how beautiful your belly was and what an incredible superpower it was to create life. 

You and your baby deserve to be celebrated in a gorgeous maternity shoot that you can look back on and cherish.

The full-service, Maternity portrait Process

When you are considering an Insley Photography art piece for your home, Alicia will personally meet with you to design and coordinate with your home’s style and decor. Alicia is professionally trained and will work with the colors, textures, sight lines and layout in your home. She will ask you to submit photos of your space where you would like to display the final product. During your in studio consultation and planning meeting you will talk about your personal style, and your long-term desires for the space. She’ll help you make preliminary choices on what to do with your images for a tangible result now and what to think about as your baby grows.

Your portrait session will be a completely stress-free experience in the studio. On the day of your session, expect to be treated and feel like a queen. First, a professional hair and makeup artist will create a timeless look that helps you feel amazing. Second, you will feel prepared and confident in what you will wear for your session (since we had a planning session to prepare you). Then we will dedicate time to creating fantastic maternity portraits for you to remember this special time. Don't worry, you will be fully guided with posing and styling throughout your session.
