Northern Virginia Maternity Photography | Client Closet



As a mom with a growing belly, I know how hard it is to find something that not only fits but looks flattering for photos! That’s why I decided to start a client closet of dresses for my Northern Virginia Maternity Photography sessions. There’s no use in buying a special dress just for a photo session while you’re pregnant to never wear it again!

I offer a collection of “one size” maternity dresses for client use for sessions with me. These dresses are super soft forgiving material that fit a variety of sizes. Some of them also work great postpartum for newborn sessions if you need something simple to wear for your in-studio photos.

Some of these photos are from my time in Hawaii, Virginia or Ohio. Although we can’t get to a beach as easily in Northern Virginia, these dresses look great in a variety of locations.

If you are a current client of mine, feel free to copy and paste the dress names I’ve used here. All clients are also welcome to come try dresses on in my studio too.

I’d be honored to capture a session for you and your growing family! For more information about maternity sessions, see more information about family sessions here.
