Petite Magnolia Photography is dedicated to documenting the amazing journey of motherhood, starting with beautifully styled maternity sessions. These sessions are done on-location but can also be done in my home or yours during the winter months.  I offer a beautiful collection of dresses for mamas as well as a limited selection for younger children.  

 In order to deliver an exceptional experience & beautiful images, I serve a limited number of clients each month.  Scheduling your maternity session early will ensure my availability for your date.  Most mamas-to-be schedule their session to take place between 32-34 weeks of pregnancy.  This is an ideal time as your baby bump is showing beautifully yet you’re still comfortable.  Maternity sessions can be combined with newborn, milestone & family sessions as a Collective Membership to receive exclusive pricing & benefits.

Session Fee $300
The session fee commissions me as your photographer and includes your welcome package, pre-session consultation, your reserved session time, access to client wardrobe, hand-editing of 25-30 images, as well as your in-person viewing appointment.  At your private viewing appointment, you will view your images for the first time as printed proofs and choose your art  pieces as well as your digital images.  The session fee does not include any printed or digital products.


the Collective Membership starting at $600
For those clients who wish to document a series of life’s milestones and receive exclusive pricing & benefits, a Collective Membership (3 or more sessions) is available.  All newborn sessions in the Membership receive a complimentary set of 25 custom designed announcements.


the Design & Ordering Appointment
During this appointment, I help to guide clients in choosing pieces that will best display their images as well as compliment their home & lifestyle.  Heirloom artwork includes albums and framed fine art prints, as well as digital images.  A product & portrait planning guide is included in your welcome package.  Clients typically invest $1250 or more at their ordering appointment.

Petite Maternity Session
These petite one-hour sessions are just for the mama-to-be.  They include one dress choice from the client wardrobe and 5 digital files for $600.


Sessions can take place in a field, my home or your home.  Outdoor sessions take place either shortly after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.  All in-home sessions are done in the morning.

I offer my clients a carefully curated wardrobe of beautiful gowns as well as some pieces for babies and younger children.  During your pre-session consultation, we will discuss your wardrobe options and create a look that you will love.  I am happy to create a style inspiration board for your family to help when it comes time to choose their outfits.

A professional stylist is available for hair and makeup for an additional fee of $150.  This is a great way to ensure that you look and feel gorgeous as well as getting a chance to be pampered.  This service adds an additional hour to your session.

Absolutely!  I highly encourage you to include your spouse and children in this experience.  A styling consultation is provided for everyone!  If you want to keep it simple and just to yourself, my petite maternity session would be your perfect choice.

Due to the intricate editing process, please allow 2-3 weeks for your viewing & ordering appointment.  

Yes, of course!  My goal is to create beautiful, heirloom quality artwork that will be displayed in your home and passed along to future generations.  Clients have the option to purchase just the digitals a la carte or at special pricing with heirloom artwork.

Nothing makes me happier than when I get to document a series of life’s milestones for my clients.  I love the relationship that we build as well as watching your family grow!  I am so appreciative of your loyalty.  For those clients wanting to secure three or more sessions, I offer a Collective Membership with exclusive session pricing, complimentary newborn announcements, investment incentives, as well as priority booking for Santa Sessions & Petite Motherhood Sessions.  The Collective Membership can include maternity, newborn, baby, milestone, & family sessions.  A limited number of memberships are offered annually, please inquire early. 

I sure do!  I offer 2 limited edition sessions every year.  In the spring, I offer Petite Motherhood Sessions to document mamas and their little ones.  These are held April through June- these make a great Mother’s Day gift!  I also offer Santa sessions every November  and these are released in August, so make sure you join my email list and check back often to snag a spot- they sell out fast!
