A maternity/boudoir photography session with Stephanie Toland Photography is an empowering experience that lets you celebrate motherhood. At the studio, your maternity photography session will be styled like a fashion shoot — and you’re the star! The lighting, sets and backgrounds are kept elegant and simple to keep the focus on you and your baby. Your maternity photo shoot is never rushed. I will take the time to direct you to make sure that you feel comfortable, confident and beautiful.


My mission is simple: create a collection of wall-worthy images that you will love. From the day we start planning to the moment you take your photos home, my goal is to create stunning works of art that capture your beauty, tell your story and celebrate you at this special moment in your life. My style is fresh, bold and eye-catching — while emphasizing your natural beauty. I gravitate toward neutral colors, jaw-dropping black and white images, and clean lines. I want you to be able to look back at these photos for a lifetime, so my aim is to keep it simple. This moment is already timeless!


Your maternity photoshoot at my studio will be tailored specifically to you. Together we will discuss ideas on posing, lighting, wardrobe and style to make sure that your vision becomes a reality. As soon as you are booked, you’ll receive a detailed prep guide filled with tips on how to get ready for your photoshoot. To start planning your session, be sure to peruse my maternity portfolio for addition inspiration.


In addition to a selection of silk fabrics to choose from, you will receive a detailed prep guide with information on choosing the perfect outfits for your maternity session. Some of my favorite options include form-fitting dresses, lace robes and meaningful personal items/accessories.  


I include professional photo retouching in your maternity session. I am passionate about creating beautiful images that celebrate your individuality. While I do edit out blemishes and minor imperfections, I want to keep you looking like you. I use posing to get flattering body positions and to enhance your favorite features. You probably won't even be able to tell what I've done — you’ll just be amazed at how beautiful you are!


I offer high-quality prints, stunning metal wall art, heirloom portfolio boxes and beautiful lay flat albums. For more details about products, visit my pricing and products page. Together we will discuss which products will be best to display your new art.
