These parents to be were naturals in front of the camera. We had so much fun with outfit changes and exploring the beautiful rooms in their Bloor West village home. Big doggie brother even made an appearance and was so well behaved!

This beautiful family is expecting their second child and I am so excited to be photographing their little girl when she makes her appearance. Big brother did so well for his first official photo session!
First time parents
This in home maternity session was so fun! There is something so special about capturing the excitement of first time parents. Maternity sessions at home have a relaxed vibe which I love and they complement at home newborn sessions so well too!
Magical anticipation captured
Let's be real - pregnancy is a wild ride. There are moments of overwhelming love and excitement, and moments of exhaustion and uncertainty. That's why I approach my maternity photography sessions with a mix of fun and relaxation. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, so we can capture the real, authentic you. Whether you want to rock a dress or keep it casual in your favorite jeans and a tee, I'm here to help you feel confident and beautiful!

When should I schedule a maternity session?
What should we wear for our session?
How long will my maternity session take?
I recommend booking your session with me once you are in your second trimester. I only take a limited number of maternity sessions a month to ensure that my clients get their preferred dates. Generally maternity sessions are scheduled between 28-36 weeks pregnant.
My maternity sessions take between 60 and 90 minutes. This gives us lots of time for wardrobe changes and photographing in different rooms. When siblings are involved, they tend to go closer to 90 minutes.
Once you have booked a date with me, I will send you my session prep guide which includes lots of information on what to wear. Neutrals and softer colours are always a great option. However if your home has a richer colour scheme then coordinating with that will also be great! For maternity sessions, I recommend choosing a few options. For example, a super cute bralette/panty set with an oversized shirt/sweater, some comfy jean and even a dress you feel beautiful in! It's nice to get a bit of variety in your session to give you more options to choose from.
Are siblings and pets welcome?
YES!! My sessions involve the whole family. If your pets want to cooperate then the more the merrier!
Claire did an absolutely amazing job with our newborn photos. It was such a calming experience having the photos done at our house. Claire put us all at ease, and the final output is perfect!

Our most precious photos of our little one were taken by Claire. What makes her a special photographer in my mind is her patient and calm approach, the connection she is able to make with kids (they love her!) and her knack for capturing those perfect moments or expressions (the photos of our baby's sleep smile or him sticking his tongue out at us immediately come to mind). Thanks again Claire!

Claire took some absolutely beautiful photos of our new family. She has such a lovely way with little ones and is so patient, relaxed, gentle and she really took her time with us to take some beautiful pictures. She also has an amazing eye, she really is very creative and can work with whatever space you have available to create intimate, natural photos (we have a tiny 2 bedroom in the city, so I was initially a little worried that we didn’t have the “right” setting for beautiful photos, but she took absolutely gorgeous photos, both inside and outside of our home).
She is extremely service-oriented as it was clear that main goal was to make sure we were comfortable and really happy with the photos she took, which we were. Also, her packages are well priced and are flexible, so that we were able to get exactly what we wanted. We had a lovely experience with Claire and we absolutely can’t wait to do another photo shoot with Claire as our family grows!!

Claire captured some really special moments for our family during a maternity family session in a beautiful park as well as a newborn session at our home. She is incredible to work with, really bringing out the personalities in our children. Plus, she has a great personality which made our photo sessions really fun! For all these reasons I highly recommend Claire!

Claire is the best! We love the photos of our daughter! I was a bit apprehensive about a newborn session since it's such a stressful time, but she made everything relaxed and easy. Highly recommended!
