As someone who battled infertility for years, I know how special these maternity sessions can be for my clients! Sometimes the pregnancy is like my first—it happens years of trying and some additional fertility help. Other times families are welcoming in an additional child to the chaos!

Whatever your story is, the pregnancy is an important part of that journey to expanding your family. So often women feel “huge” and hate how they look during this time. But what they forget is the miracle that their body is in being able to change shape and create life. My goal is to take pictures that make the moms feel beautiful about the miracle inside them.

As with all of my work, I like to focus on storytelling with details and connections between people. My maternity sessions are relaxed, and I like to focus on the details and relationship between the mom and whomever is with her—husband, family, friends, or children.

I can work with you on location. I know some families have liked the urban vibe of Old Town Alexandria or downtown Annapolis. Others like the beauty of the water and opt for Chesapeake Beach’s Brownie Beach or Jefferson Patterson Park. I’m happy to help you find the perfect location to remember this important chapter in your family story. To book your session, visit my contact page or e-mail me at teresa@tcjdesign.com.
