Cheyenne Maternity Photographer
Perks of Hiring Me
All final digital images included.
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.
All your final (and edited!) digital images are included with every session, at no additional cost. No limit on downloads, no watermarks, no print credits. You will receive your images in an online gallery, which is perfect for sharing with family and friends, especially those who may not be local!
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.
INCLUDES FAMILY PHOTOS.
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.
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.
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.

Get in touch.
I will send a sneak peek gallery and slideshow within 3 business days of your maternity session.
Your full online gallery will be available within 1-2 weeks of your session.
To reserve a time and date for a maternity session, I require a signed contract and a $50 deposit. Both can be handled online, from the comfort of your sweatpants on your couch!
I will be available by email or text for any questions you might have! A couple days before your session I will be in touch by text to make sure the time and date still work for you.
Use my Contact page or the button below to get in touch, and I'll be in touch in 1-2 business days (and usually even sooner!). I'm happy to send along additional info or answer any questions you might have. If you decide to book, we'll work on setting a date, time and possibly figuring out the location.
I recommend maternity photos happen between approximately 28 and 34 weeks, so send me your due date when you get in touch and I'll get you a range of dates for scheduling purposes.
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 34 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 35 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.)
What should we wear for our session?
I am really loving long flowy dresses for maternity sessions. Tight enough to show off your belly, but long and flowy to hide some (potentially) swollen legs. Bonus with long dresses? You can wear whatever comfy shoes you like!
If you're not a dress person, that's okay too! I would suggest wearing a tighter t-shirt/tank top to show off the belly, with some layers on top (scarf, loose cardigan). Watch out for lines from your maternity pants under your shirt though!
For spouses and children, have them wear something casual that fits their personality. Jeans, button down shirt, sweater, it all works.
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. I also love sessions at clients' homes, both inside and out!
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!
Any tips for planning my maternity photography session?
Yes!! Having been a maternity photographer for almost seven years now, I've learned what does and doesn't work for my maternity clients. I recently put together a few tips and tricks for planning a gorgeous maternity photography session (bonus: it has a link to my favorite maternity dress retailer!).
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.
