You’ll always remember the way it felt to carry your baby for 9 months. Feeling those kicks for the first time. Hearing their heartbeat before you met them. Knowing they were safe and snuggled with you as their everything. It’s a special bond that is created between a mother and baby before they’re born and worth documenting the beauty of this connection.

Our Cedar Falls maternity photographer, Meghan, specializes in capturing these precious moments and preserving them for a lifetime of cherished memories.

I was hesitant to get my pictures taken at 9 months pregnant, but she made me feel like a goddess.
I cannot recommend Meghan enough to families, expecting mamas or new mamas. I was hesitant to get my pictures taken at 9 months pregnant, but she made me feel like a goddess. I am so thankful I have photos of my pregnancy to cherish. She is so much more than a photographer too. She offers services after your session if you choose (framing, photo books, etc)! She has an incredible client wardrobe with top of the line dresses and clothing for the entire family. Highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to capture your memories!
Meghan has been extremely wonderful to work with.
She creates a personal experience and does a great job combining her aesthetic and your personal style to create beautiful photographs. I would recommend her services to anyone wanting timeless photos.
Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 30-34 weeks. For twins, 28-32 weeks is best.
Absolutely! In fact, I think it’s really important to capture the bond between a sibling and the baby inside your growing belly. I think it’s sometimes easy to forget that our other family members have that unique connection to, even though they aren’t physically carrying a baby.
Because we book 3-6 months in advance, I would recommend booking between when you’re 13-20 weeks along in your pregnancy. If you’re further along, please fill out the contact form anyways as I sometimes have last minute openings.
Indoor sessions are during weekdays from 9am-2pm. Outdoor sessions are offered on select weeknights and take place approximately 3 hours before sunset. However, if you have younger children, we can adjust our start time based on what’s best for their nap/dinner schedule. Sessions take approximately 1 hour plus 1 hour for hair and makeup.
Our most popular choice among expecting parents is the First Year Baby Plan. The first-year baby plan is a collection of 3-4 sessions, and we reserve a limited number of spots for baby plan members each year. We recommend booking sooner than later if this interests you. By booking the First Year Baby Plan, you will save on session fees and you’ll receive an album credit at each ordering appointment that can be used toward building your baby’s first-year album.
Our most popular milestones are maternity, newborn & 1 year OR newborn, 6 months and 1 year.
