Your San Francisco Maternity Photographer
Documenting the beauty of your journey through the season of waiting.
There’s an actual human growing inside of you. It is completely wild.
And your body is changing drastically.
Every. Single. Day.
You don’t know where the discomfort ends and the magic begins. There are certainly plenty of both.
This is one of the most authentic experiences of your life, and you want to remember what that felt like.
And you want to tell the whole story, the one that includes the joy and the magic but also the quiet moments and even the tough ones too.
“Pregnancy is a process that invites you to surrender to the unseen force behind all life.”
– Judy Ford
Pregnancy is Unrepeatable
My wife and I had a long road to a successful pregnancy, and the more we open up and tell about it, the more we find other women and couples with emotional stories of their own.
Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to know that I see maternity, and the photos that we make of it, as unrepeatable. Each and every pregnancy contains a narrative of its own, full of varying levels of excitement and joy and discomfort, and even some anxiety too.
With maternity sessions, I am looking to make pictures that weave right into the fabric of your narrative. We work together to find the magic in your journey. That includes collaboration in where we take pictures, who you bring along, and what you want to wear. Maternity is personal, and your pictures should be too.

Outdoor Maternity Photos
I generally recommend outdoor maternity sessions. Pregnancy and childbirth are such deeply natural processes, and outdoor spaces highlight that. Dramatic sunlight, dense fog, redwood forests, rugged California coastline – photographs in these environments are full of a deep sense of connection.
If you are due in March thru May, don’t stress. Here’s why Winter is my favorite season for photo sessions.
