Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

A New Chapter of Life, Beautifully Captured Forever.




Nine months may seem like an eternity while you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy, but in the grand scheme of things, it's such a small window of time. So, celebrate the miracle of your body, remember all of the anticipation and excitement of your baby’s arrival, and commemorate the first step in your child's journey with breathtaking art pieces to enjoy for a lifetime.

“No one else will ever understand
the strength of my love for you.
After all, you’re the only one
who knows what my heart sounds
like from the inside.” — Author Unknown

From the very beginning, as soon as the baby starts to move inside the womb, to the moment when they take their first breath, pregnancy is a miraculous and special experience that deserves to be remembered. After all, this is a sacred time shared only between you and your growing little one, creating a bond that can never be broken. Let's capture that unique connection and your unending love in heirloom masterpieces that last forever.


No two families are alike. Whether you conceived naturally or you’re on an IVF journey, pregnancy is a beautiful time that can be cherished for eternity. Maternity photos are a great way to capture and commemorate a mother's joy as she awaits the arrival of her little one.

Spend an hour savoring the miracle of life growing inside you in a solo maternity portrait session, or bring your loved ones along for couples or family photos highlighting your baby bump.

The process

What to Expect

My goal is to make sure you have an enjoyable experience, feel confident, and, ultimately, love your photos. I'll guide you through everything from choosing the right location to finding the best maternity outfits and poses. I'll send you a questionnaire to help me understand your vision and a style guide to help you dress to impress. Let's make magical memories you'll treasure forever!


Your Step by Step


Say hello! After you fill out the contact form, keep an eye on your email inbox. Together, we’ll confirm a date and discuss your vision. I'll send you a location guide and help you choose the ideal photo backdrop.

All sessions are scheduled during the “golden hour,” which is approximately an hour and a half before the sun sets.


Once we settle on the details, we can make it official! I will send you a contract to review and an invoice for your initial deposit.

Book Your Session

It's time to get ready! Picture day is your time to shine, so pretend you’re going in for a magazine cover photoshoot and live it up! I’ll give you everything you need to prepare, including:

  • A detailed style guide to help you choose outfits and colors that complement my light and airy elevated photography style, complete with a helpful checklist to help you stay organized.

  • Hair and makeup recommendations, upon request.

  • A detailed questionnaire to learn about your goals, likes, and dislikes.

  • An optional planning consultation call to discuss the details, get to know each other, clear up any last-minute questions, and provide additional 1:1 outfit guidance.

  • Open lines of communication throughout the whole process.




Time to make your vision a reality. I'll guide you through poses & photo combinations. Don't worry if you're shy or nervous; I'm here to help and make it fun! I'll get there early to set up, and you let me know when you arrive. We'll begin with the full family if they’re joining you, while ultimately highlighting you and your baby bump throughout the session.



Picture Day!

Editing magic begins. Editing is my favorite part of the session, and I often have to break out the tissues. I carefully hand-edit each photo, so you’ll receive only the best, highest quality images, free from distracting imperfections. You can anticipate a sneak peek shortly after your session and your fully-edited, private digital gallery within 15 days. You will have the option to purchase prints and products straight from your gallery.

She picked the most beautiful spot for our maternity pictures. The way she captures the lightning in her photos is phenomenal! My husband and I tend to be very awkward on camera, BUT she made us feel so comfortable with the different poses.

It is no easy feat to get three little kids and an infant to cooperate but somehow Heidi managed to make us all look our best. She really wanted to make sure we loved our photos and took a lot of time before and after the shoot to understand what we wanted for lighting, poses etc. the photos that she took are absolute treasures."
