Maternity Boudoir Session

Maternity Boudoir Sessions

A maternity boudoir session, you say? Yes! They’re totally a thing and I’m so excited to show one of my recent maternity sessions off!

Besides the Obvious…How is Maternity Boudoir Different From Regular Boudoir?

Maternity boudoir is more soft, more romantic, more about showing the beauty of the woman bringing a life into this world. And let’s not forget about that sweet baby bump!

One thing that’s different about maternity boudoir… there really isn’t lingerie involved! I recommend my maternity boudoir clients to bring cute lace bras or bralettes (she got her cute bralettes from Aerie)!  I also love the idea of cozy knit sweaters or cardigans rather than kimonos that I would normally use for boudoir. You are welcome to bring your own, or I have a few that I keep on hand for my clients to borrow!

When Should I Schedule A Session?

Usually I advise expecting mamas to schedule their maternity session in their third trimester. Once you’ve entered your third trimester, your belly begins to develop more of a nice round shape that’s perfect for showing off in photos.


Here’s what Maddie had to say about her boudoir session with me!

“Maternity boudoir? YES. YOU. SHOULD. I was basically crapping my pants nervous to do this (and I’m a photographer!), but I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t and I am BLOWN AWAY. Emma is totally amazing and I will treasure these photos forever. They are classy, romantic, fun, and everything I wanted. I LOVE THEM!! Thanks, Emma, for saying yes to this extra challenge and rolling with some of my ideas!
