Maternity Photography| Studio| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography

Whoa, gorgeous MaMa! Capturing K.  maternity session at my home studio is quite a treat because not only do I get to spend time with a glowing mama, but we also with different outfits.   Bonus: In a few weeks I’ll get to snuggle her new baby! Maternity sessions are such an important way to document this huge milestone in your life. Glowing mama and growing family! Your littles will want to look back on these moments, and your photographs will show them just how excited the family was for their arrival. Maternity sessions are typically captured between 32 and 36 weeks, and we can go as easy as you need or be as adventurous as you want! I’ll help you select a location – in your home or outdoors – and outfits! This process is meant to be FUN and EASY, so I’ll hold your hand! What are you waiting for?!

Pick a prop|Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Newborn & Family Photography

Preparing for your session: 

When planning a session, it helps to pick one main color that will be present in all the shots- then add complementary colors to the images to add a bit of interest and to compliment ( yes, i said complement...not over power) the images (or baby!) as a whole. 

The images below are a few of the props i have available for you to choose from.  I always try and to incorporate a prop into each session.  Take a look below to see the types of buckets, baskets and wreathes available to you during your session.  

Choosing  the color scheme and props involves a little planning and thinking about what the end goal will be.  Did you want a wall display? custom framed prints,  gallery wrapped canvases or an Heirloom album. Whatever your goal may be,  my goal as your photographer is to take the color scheme you would like and make beautiful images for you to display in your home.  

buckets

The wreath can be plane or decorated with flowers to suit your specific session.  The antique suitcase is very nice when posing newborns or older babies.  The curved bench is one of my favorite props to use.  If you wanted a nautical theme i have the boat for you. :) 

I have several baskets,  a curved wicker basket, a flatter longer basket and a brown crate all make for adorable props.  I also have a white birch tree truck for the winter months and a sling for a simple clean fresh in the womb feel.

I’ve just loved watching Zoey grow over the last year. I’ve had the joy of seeing her in the studio/location every few months to capture all of her milestones! Her cake smash session was just the icing on the cake to top off the wonderful year we have had together.   Z. was not a fan of the cake but soon warmed up and had fun.

I fell in love with this sweet, beautiful family the first time we met.  I photographed the birth of their first baby and had the honor of photographing this babies as well.   This was the most lovely experience , working alongside two incredible birth workers Midwife and their doula (Amy). The birth was fast and amazing.  Patricia was a Rock Star!   The family chose not to find out their baby's gender until the birth.  I hope you love reliving the day E. came earth side just as much as i have while piecing their story together.

I met Emily a few years ago as i was her doula for her first baby.  I was so excited to hear that she was expecting again.  I was even more excited when she contacted me to do her sweet little girls newborn portraits.  Isabelle was just perfect and i had great company while doing her session.  Here are a few from our session of Miss. Isabelle.

Meet 8 day old Zoe:

Oh my….I know I say this all the time but seriously baby girl Zoe is just the prettiest baby girl!!  She has given me a bad case of baby fever, haha.  She just the sweetest little gal too, I could have snuggled with this cutie pie all day long.   She has the most gorgeous head of curly hair hair and the biggest most beautiful set of brown eyes I’ve ever seen on a newborn.  Zoe was very happy to keep those eyes open for most of the session.  Yep, she definitely knew something was up and she didn’t want to miss one single thing.  I love when newborns have such wonderful eye contact.  It’s rare to get a picture of them looking directly at me but with my paparazzi like skills (hehe) I’m able to wait for that perfect opportunity to get that most sought after picture.  It took a LOT of sweet talking to get Miss Zoe to fall asleep but once she did I was able to capture some very beautiful pictures of her.  

Congratulations to this new family of 3!

Meet 22 day old Arjun:

Introducing the teeny tiny sweet-as-can-be Mr. Arjun.  He was 22 days old the day of his session and he just rocked it!  That was the day of the big snow storm.  He has such a wonderful little personality and he even shared a few really adorable big smiles with me.  His smiles where so big at time, I’m pretty sure I heard him laughing.  I wonder what he was dreaming about….or maybe he was just laughing at me, haha!

He already has such a fun personality.  He really LOVED being wrapped up.  I’m so glad that the weather finally held out long enough for us to get Arjuns' session done – it’s been so cold and snowy.  We received 17" of snow that day. I'm glad i was able to photograph this sweet boy before the snow really hit.   Pretty soon this sweet little boy will be running around outside all day long and his family will soon be missing the newborn stage.  They will forever have wonderful memories to forever remember this fleeting age always and I’m so happy that I was able to capture so many beautiful pictures of Arjun for his family.  The newborn age only happens once and I’m always so honored when families have chosen me to capture this precious time for them.

Many congratulations to this wonderful new family:
