There is something so special about babies. Holding their silky weight in your arms, their newborn smell. Soon you will be able to count those tiny fingers and toes. Remember that your baby will love you unconditionally. Making all the mood swings and morning sickness all worth it!
It might not seem like it right now, but your precious belly bump will be gone before you know it, leaving you wishing that you have captured your gorgeous new body and this moment in time to remember that amazing sensation of having a life inside you.
Maternity sessions are a great opportunity to get pampered before baby arrives. So go on, get your hair and make-up done, put on a gorgeous gown and I will take care of the rest!
I can't wait to connect with you to plan your maternity session tailored specially for you! You deserve it!
our body may be going through a lot of interesting changes right now, but the biggest change of all will be your transformation into a beautiful mother.
Most people feel self-conscious about being in front of a camera (me too!). But my goal is to make this a fun and relaxing experience! I’ve done hundreds of sessions of all kinds, and I'm here to tell you, as soon as you get that first shot clicked, the nerves will dissipate.
Typically, maternity portraits are taken at 30-34 weeks of pregnancy. Most likely, you will be showing that glorious belly while still feeling pretty comfortable.
Schedule some "Me" time to get your hair and make-up done. A fresh blowout goes a long way when being photographed. You want to feel your best and this is definitely a time to treat yourself!
Solid colors, long flowy dresses, and open necklines are generally very flattering - make sure you are comfortable. Undergarments - A lot of maternity dresses are made of very stretchy fabric (To show off that bump!) So please pay attention to bra and panty lines! A well-fitted bra and supportive shape-wear will make whatever you wear
look even better!
Get a manicure and pedicure the day or two before your shoot. I typically recommend a neutral and something fresh and light. We want your images to feel classic and timeless!
I can do the shoot in a variety of places. In your home or at a favorite park. Do you want an urban/edgy feel? A romantic
garden or field? I have several location suggestions for you!
The most flattering light is just after sunrise or before sunset. I typically schedule shoots an hour after sunrise or 2 hours before sunset.
That's it! Now let's get together to capture this moment in time and to celebrate your pregnancy!

"Watching my baby girl grow into her own little
person is such an amazing experience.
As we all know, it happens too fast.
Pictures have the ability to
pause time, just for a moment.
Rosa not only did this, but artfully
captured the spirit and essence
of my daughter's soul!
I will continue to request Rosa's services
and recommend her to friends and family!"

""I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Rosa. From the initial scheduling of our shoot, Rosa scheduled time to talk about the photo shoot to get to know our family and ask what we hoped to get out of the experience.
During the shoot, she was so relaxed and easy going. I was blown away when I saw the beautiful photos of our family.
I would recommend her to anyone and cannot wait for the chance to work with her again."
"Rosa was very transparent about the process of working with her and her fees from day one - very comforting considering this is a first time experience for many couples! We spoke via phone and got to know each other a little better, then she walked me through everything from A to Z, and gave great advice on color schemes, makeup, advice for my husband, and general to-do’s prior to photoshoot day. She also gave location recommendations that we ended up using and loving. On the day of our shoot, she guided us expertly on poses and expressions that ended up making beautiful photos. Her turnaround time was prompt and as-promised, and editing was superb! She answered every question we had along the way in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Rosa for your maternity photos! You will treasure the precious moments she captures for years to come.
"Rosa was amazing!! Our session was fast
efficient and she was amazing with my kids!!
Our pictures are beautiful and I have got so
many compliments on them!
I’ve been using professional photographers
for years now and Rosa was one of the best!
We will be using her again."
"We seriously can not recommend
She was so professional and made us
comfortable during the entire session
with her fun yet relaxed personality.
She captured this special time for us
so perfectly and naturally.
We will treasure these photos
for years to come "
"Rosa took amazing newborn photos of my son.
Having never done newborn photos with
my older child, I had no idea what to expect
and I was worried that he would be fussy
or not handle the situation well.
Rosa knew exactly what to do
to keep him happy and relaxed!
I was so impressed with how well she handled
him and the great photos she got.
Highly recommended! "
