Cheyenne Maternity Photographer
why maternity photos?
INCLUDES FAMILY PHOTOS.
Maternity clients go to the top of the editing queue, no matter how busy I am! I know you're excited to show off your images, and I want you to have time to get these posted to social media before the baby arrives.
All my maternity clients receive their images within 1-2 weeks of their session.
I've been a full time photographer for eight years, photographing hundreds of clients. I've been to session locations all over southeast Wyoming and northern Colorado.
I will help you find the perfect location, give suggestions on what to wear for you session, and pass along tips and tricks for what to bring to your session. I will give gentle direction to put you in the most flattering position and light, showing off those gorgeous curves.
I frequently get asked if spouses and children are welcome at maternity sessions: yes!!
I include all members of your family in your maternity session, at no additional charge. It's up to you if your maternity session is focused mostly on you, or if it's mostly a family session with a couple photos of you by yourself.
Local Maternity Sessions are 30 minute sessions at a location in Cheyenne. Includes the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, High Plains Arboretum, in-home sessions, along with other locations in Cheyenne!
I offer maternity sessions as a standalone session, or as part of a newborn package (see below!). All maternity sessions include photos with your spouse and/or children.
Standalone maternity sessions are a great gift idea! I'm happy to provide a PDF gift certificate that you can print or email to the recipient.

Mountain Maternity Sessions include a 45 minute session at a mountain location. Session locations include the Happy Jack Recreation Area, Curt Gowdy State Park, and everything in-between! Since locations can vary based on time of year, I'll help you find the perfect location for your session.
Mountain Maternity Sessions are also able to be purchased as a standalone session.

I'm Liz! Mom to three amazing daughters, including a set of twins who made me more uncomfortable for nine months than I ever thought possible.
This is where I should include a maternity photo of my own, but other than some dimly-lit bathroom selfies, those don't exist! Which is why I am so absolutely determined to give other expectant moms a different experience. Pregnancy is a wild ride - thrilling, exhausting, mind-bending, being nauseous. This is one half hour during your third trimester, where no matter how awful you feel, I will make you look like the rock star that you are.
What does the maternity session fee include?
My session fees include the time for your session, custom processing, 50+ digital images, and an online gallery. USBs are available, upon request, for an additional fee. My pricing is all-inclusive - you'll receive 50+ images, custom processing, and an online gallery to share with family and friends.
At what point in my pregnancy should I schedule my photos?
I suggest my maternity clients schedule their session for between 28 and 32 weeks. This timeframe means you'll have an adorable, round belly, but should also still be comfortable. While I'm happy to photograph moms at 33 weeks and beyond, you might be pretty swollen and uncomfortable on your feet!
(This timing is for moms pregnant with one baby. If you're having multiples, you'll want to schedule much earlier! I looked almost full term as early as 24 weeks with twins.)
Where should we go for a maternity photo session?
I'll help you figure that out! My favorite session locations include the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens in Lions Park, Curt Gowdy State Park, and the natural areas in and around Fort Collins.
The Botanic Gardens conservatory is one of my favorite places for maternity sessions. As of now, they are only allowing one photography session/day at 9 am (Tues through Sat), and it must be scheduled ahead of time. Let me know if you're interested in this location when booking and I can call and ask about availability!
Can we do family photos during our maternity photography session?
Yes! If you have other children, they are completely welcome to come. I treat these sessions more as a combination family/maternity session. While I will definitely plan on photos of mom and belly, I will also plan on photos of the whole family, kids with mom, kids alone, etc.
If you would rather I focus mostly on the maternity part with only a couple quick snaps of the whole family, let me know!
Are pets welcome during our maternity session?
Absolutely! For a lot of my maternity clients, getting a dog with their spouse was a pivotal moment in their life as a couple, and they want to enjoy the last few weeks as a family of three. Let me know ahead of time if you'd like to include your dog(s), and I'll make sure we schedule your session for a location that allows them.
