Why you need to photograph your maternity

Many women say they feel their best during pregnancy. Whilst others struggle with health and/or body issues. Whether or not you love how you look, a professional photography session will make you feel absolutely beautiful. I have pictures my husband took of me standing sideways against a blank wall in our home to document my growing belly. I wish I'd made an investment in a maternity session.

Pregnancy is such an exciting time. Down the road, you might forget what it felt like to be expecting. Capture those emotions so you can look back on them with fondness. And if you don't know it by know, I'm very passionate about photographing maternity sessions. It is truly such a short period of your life and it should be treasured and enjoyed!

One thing that I have realized is that if we don't capture this precious stage in life, we will forget the feeling and the anticipation (beleive me, I'm a mother of three) when we have gorgeous photos we easily bring those memories back again. By the way, there is no rule that says you have to go somewhere for your maternity session. Why not let the photographer come to you for a more "lifestyle" approach? You can achieve all of the above in your own home environment.

What may feel like a lifetime waiting for your baby to arrive, really does go by fast! The focus in these sessions are of course the mother, belly and curious careful father! Long after the photos are taken they will be appreciated by your children, "this is my mother when she was expecting me".

If you are interested in planning your maternity photo shoot with Sugarlight Photography, don't hesitate to get in touch! I would love to plan it together with you.

Enjoy your day,

the folio collection box and why I love it

the folio collection box and why I love it


I think one of the most important services that I provide – in addition to taking beautiful portraits – is to help my clients get their images off their phones and devices, and bring them into their lives in the form of tangible, printed, archival art.

Approximately two weeks after your maternity, newborn or family portrait session, we will all come together once again for your much-anticipated portrait reveal and ordering appointment. This is your private appointment set up to help you select your favorite fine art product(s) as part of your collection. Every art product that I carry offers a gorgeous, high quality option to beautifully display your portraits in your home. The Folio Collection Box is one of my absolute favorite pieces.

why I love this luxurious folio collection box for your maternity, newborn and family portraits

  • The Folio Collection Box is a luxurious, 11×14 handmade presentation box fitted with a selection of your favorite portraits from your session.
  • Designed to beautifully showcase as well as protect your images, the Folio Collection Box can be displayed open on a table, or stored closed on a shelf.
  • As an alternative to a traditional printed portrait album, the Folio Box offers much greater versatility, allowing you to add or replace of images as you like. 
  • Use it as a keepsake or memory box to be passed down one day to your child.
  • Keep the complete collection inside the box, or choose to display your favorite image outside of the box. Switch them out as often as you like. 
  • Every printed image is matted to 11×14 and ready to frame for your wall, or simply set out, with or without a frame, on a beautiful easel.
  • Use one or some of the gorgeous matted images as a gift to grandparents or godparents, while you keep a beautiful collection for yourself.
  • The Folio Box provides a beautiful, private place to safely keep a portrait folio that you may not necessarily want on display for everyone who comes into your home; this a particularly beautiful option for Maternity portraits. 
  • Purchase your favorite maternity images, and later add your newborn, milestone, and first-year portraits to make it a complete collection of your baby’s first year. 

On the day of your reveal and ordering appointment, there will be samples available for you. I’m happy to meet with you before you reserve your session if you would like to see these items in advance. 

Our boutique product line is made up of the highest quality art pieces, art albums and prints available. Please let me know if you have any questions, Im always here to help!
