Glamorous Studio Maternity Sessions are LIVE

Many of you knew I wanted to grow the maternity branch of my Ellie B Photography “tree”. After months of preparation, including workshops and new lighting techniques, I’m thrilled to say that I’m now offering studio maternity shoots. These sessions will be all about celebrating you as a woman and mother to be. I remember what it feels like to be pregnant: uncomfortable, swollen, and exhausted. This is our chance to make you feel like the strong, beautiful woman you truly are. Size 2 or 20, short hair or long; you don’t need to come feeling confident and glamorous, but

Every success story is a tale of constant adaption, revision, and change. -Richard Branson Just yesterday I was chatting with a photographer friend, and she asked if I feel like I’ve found my groove.

That’s why with every session, I strive to produce beautiful, timeless memories of your family that you can hang on your wall, place on your mantle, or tuck away in your wallet so you can relive them whenever you want.
