Getting Started

Our first step is a warm, in-depth consultation where I get to know you and your vision for the maternity shoot. This is a time to discuss your preferred styles, any themes or concepts you have in mind, and how we can best capture the essence of your pregnancy. My aim is to create a session that feels deeply personal and reflective of your unique journey.


West Michigan offers a diverse array of stunning locations for your maternity photoshoot. Whether you envision your session amidst the natural beauty of a lakeside setting, a lush park, or an urban backdrop in Grand Rapids or Rockford, I’ll help you select the perfect location that complements and enhances the beauty of your maternity portraits.

The Photoshoot

My maternity photoshoots are designed to be a comfortable, enjoyable, and empowering experience. I focus on capturing the beauty and strength of your pregnancy in a relaxed setting. My approach is to create natural, candid moments that reflect the love and anticipation you feel for your upcoming arrival.

Image Editing

Post-shoot, I’ll carefully edit your photos to bring out their best qualities, enhancing the natural glow of your pregnancy while maintaining the authenticity of the moment. My editing process is delicate and respectful, ensuring the images I deliver are not only beautiful but also true to the emotion and beauty of your maternity journey.

Package Options

My maternity package is designed to provide you with a range of choices for preserving these precious moments. If you are looking for a smaller or larger package, I am happy to create a custom package specifically for you.

“My husband and I used Karla for our maternity pictures in February of 2021 and just used her again for our daughter’s 1 year pictures! We love working with her, she is talented, easy to work with and timely! We will definitely continue using her in the future!”
