This magazine takes all the guesswork and stress out of planning the perfect photo session!
When I was brand new to photographing maternity sessions, I would send general wardrobe tips via email to my clients. Sometimes this worked pretty well… but other times, couples would look like they got ready in separate locations! Mama-to-be would be ultra dressed up, while her husband was dressed very casually. Their photos would be pretty, but something would feel off because their outfits didn’t go together.
I knew something had to change to ensure my couples always looked and felt amazing; I wanted everyone to feel super prepared because that guarantees comfort and confidence before the session even begins! (This makes an enormous difference in your photos!)
So, I created the Celebrate Motherhood magazine!
Print & digital versions of Celebrate Motherhood magazine!
It’s a gorgeous 54-page magazine that goes over everything you need to prepare for the most beautiful maternity, newborn and baby photography sessions ever! I’ve poured years of experience – and hundreds of hours – into this magazine. I absolutely love sending it out to clients because if she follows the tips inside, she will love her photos for a lifetime.
In fact, one big goal I had for this magazine was that it would work beautifully as a PRINT and DIGITAL publication! Fortunately, my background in layout and design made creating the print version a piece of cake.
ALL the info for incredible maternity & newborn photos!
The magazine includes timelines for each session so that you know exactly what’s happening from the moment we begin working together. You don’t have to wonder if I’ll send reminders before we meet for photos (I will!), when your photos will be delivered, or what day your post-session blog post feature goes live. It’s all clearly outlined in your magazine!
One thing every mama has loved is how so many sample photos are included. No matter what kind of session we’re designing, I’ve included tons of sample outfits and color combinations. Even better, you’ll see photos of the gowns in my client closet for maternity photography sessions! Some of these dresses work equally well for newborn sessions, and they’re available to any mama who is interested.
I also include a simple checklist for how to prep your house before an at-home newborn session. Listen, I know you’re not super concerned about how your house looks after you have a baby. I also know you want your photos to look amazing! My checklist includes really simple suggestions for the areas where we usually photograph: the nursery, the master bedroom and the living room. You can hand this list off to your hubby before I arrive. It will give you so much peace of mind about how your photos will look!
I’ve included just a snapshot of the Celebrate Motherhood magazine here – once you book a session, you’ll get the entire thing!
For mamas who book a single session with me, I send a digital version of the magazine immediately to your inbox. Working with me for two+ sessions? A gorgeous print copy will be in your mailbox! I think you’ll love how it looks on your coffee table, even after we’re done working together!
You could be featured in the next edition!
I update the Celebrate Motherhood magazine twice per year: in January and in August. Each edition includes new information and photos from recent sessions. This means your beautiful maternity, newborn and baby photos could absolutely be featured in an upcoming edition!
It makes me so happy to provide my clients with such an amazing, helpful resource so that your photo experience with me is something you’ll always treasure. I love that it’s beautifully designed and easy to read; I also love that my clients don’t have to sort through wordy emails or search through Pinterest boards to find the information they need!
You won’t find a magazine this helpful or beautiful anywhere else, and it’s created with you in mind! I can’t wait to send you your copy! All you have to do is tell me when you’re due and we’ll begin planning your dream maternity and newborn sessions!
