maternity portraits

As you reach 30-34 weeks of pregnancy, you begin to feel that your little bundle of joy can’t get here soon enough, and then before you know it, your pregnancy adventure is over.


How will you and your family remember the little miracles and each detail of this special time? The glow of your skin, the little fluttering kicks, the excited emotions, and the endless belly kisses.


A Beach Maternity Photography Session with you and your spouse is the perfect way to capture all of the wonder of this unique time in a stunning, remarkable way.


your maternity session

We focus on capturing the magnificence of your baby bump while also capturing you in the most flattering ways. We will help you throughout your session to perfect every little detail and to also make sure you feel comfortable and beautiful during your maternity session.

Using off camera lighting combined with the ambient natural light of the sunset (or sunrise) allows us to capture a variety of beautiful concepts including beautiful silhouettes.

We help you every step of the way from wardrobe to choosing the best images for you to display in your home and share with loved ones.

what to wear

Choosing the perfect maternity wardrobe for your session is all about your comfort level!

We photograph both fully clothed expectant mothers, as well as elegantly implied nudes. For this reason, please be sure to keep in mind that sunrise session may be a better option if you are uncomfortable in front of crowds on the beach.

We have a variety of maternity dresses here at the studio, including fitted dresses and flowy ruffle dresses. However, we love to help you "shop" for your perfect look. We suggest checking out Flutter Dresses online when searching for that perfect dress or robe.

Don't forget those keepsake items like the ultrasound pic, cute baby shoes or booties and other memorabilia you would like to showcase in your maternity portraits.

The greatest legacy we can leave our family is happy memories.

"Melonie is absolutely wonderful! She has been photographing my family for years! She is so creative and a dream to work with. Getting you to relax and have a blast is her specialty! She has done everything for my family from senior portraits to grand babies! Melonie and Tim even made a trip back to Michigan and took the time to do a last minute engagement session for my son and future daughter in law and are traveling back to do their wedding in the fall. We are so excited to have her capture their special day and have precious photos to remember the day!"

"Thank you Melonie for the beautiful photos you took of my family on the beach! You were so easy & fun to work with & you knew exactly how to get the perfect shot! Just like the photo I posted below (visit our google reviews to view image). You captured such a cute photo of my grandchildren on the beach! This is just one of the many I will forever love & cherish!"

~Pam J



“Our session with Melonie was amazing! She started the session giving posing tips and was patient and laughed with us as we quickly forgot them as soon as she got behind the camera! She actually made the session fun, and therefore was able to capture genuine smiles. Can’t wait to see the images in our home!"
