The Maternity Experience
There are endless options for a stunning maternity session you’ll never forget – indoor or outdoor, casual or glamorous, the whole family or just mama. We’ll work together to design an amazing experience you’ll treasure forever. Even better, your photos are typically ready for you within one week!! I primarily offer maternity photography in The Woodlands, Texas, but I am always happy to travel to you!
After you book, we’ll officially schedule your maternity session. Don’t worry – it will be a wonderful experience that you and your hubby will genuinely enjoy! I thrive at helping couples and families relax in front of the camera. A huge part of helping you feel confident is my exclusive Celebrate Motherhood magazine. It’s full of tips and suggestions to help you prepare for the most beautiful session ever!
Within about 20 minutes of us working together during your session, you’ll feel much more comfortable – guaranteed. That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and capture the joy of this new adventure called parenthood. I’ve never had a couple not feel at ease!
All of the beautiful mamas and happy couples you see here wanted more than just pretty photos – they wanted an amazing experience! Even if you say you’re not photogenic or your husband hates having his picture taken, these are pictures you’ll be dying to show off – and you’ll treasure the memories forever.
After your maternity session, you’ll receive your complimentary sneak peek within 24 hours. Your full gallery of gorgeous images will be delivered within a week, and you’ll be featured on my blog!
The Client Closet
Most mamas wear something of mine, along with an outfit from home they love. Several of my options work beautifully for maternity & newborn photo sessions; neutral shades like these always photograph well! My client closet includes pre-pregnancy sizes 4-12.
Custom maternity session videos
These incredible sneak peek videos are available within 24 hours of your session. I create them for everyone at no additional cost.
This was our first photo shoot and she made me feel so comfortable, beautiful results! We looked at our sneak peek (and) Bobby got chills looking at it - we love it!

"Kristal was absolutely wonderful to work with for my maternity and newborn photos. Right from first contact, Kristal was responsive, answered any questions and took the time to get to know exactly what my vision was for the photos. She is also extraordinarily sweet and easy to work with, making the entire process very comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to capture memories to last a lifetime."

What’s Included in Every Photo Session
Q: What makes The Maternity Experience different?
A: With The Maternity Experience, my goal is to give clients a beautiful evening where you enjoy yourselves, celebrate your baby and have gorgeous memories to share with loved ones.
Almost every woman wants photos that capture the radiance and beauty of pregnancy; that’s why lots of glowing mamas-to-be schedule maternity photos. But beyond that, maternity photography sessions mark the important and life-altering transition into motherhood. Your maternity session is an incredible way to embrace your new identity as a mother and celebrate this new phase of life with loved ones.
Another key difference between me and other photographers: I am fully insured to protect my clients and my business! There’s nothing more important to me than your peace of mind while we work together.
Q: Do you offer indoor/studio options for maternity photos?
A: Yes! We can shoot maternity photos in your home or in the studio! I’ve also photographed clients at other indoor locations, including country clubs and other venues. Let’s discuss your preferences for indoor vs. outdoor photos, and we’ll find an option that works for you.
Q: What if I have no idea what to wear?!
A: No problem! I have a studio closet of gowns and dresses to fit a variety of mamas. These gorgeous options come in a variety of colors, fabrics and lengths. I also send every mama a copy of my Celebrate Motherhood magazine, a 56-page guide that makes preparing for your sessions totally effortless! Inside you’ll find tons of tips for you, your hubby and older kiddos, along with sample photos of outfits and color combinations that work well. Hands down, every mama I work with loves this magazine because it makes it simple to look amazing and feel confident about your photo session before we ever meet.
Plus, the magazine is really pretty sitting out on your coffee table! It’s much more fun to plan your session using this magazine than going through emails or Pinterest boards! There is a digital version too, if you’d prefer to look at it on your phone, computer or tablet.
Q: What COVID-19 precautions are you taking?
A: I completely understand the concern you may be feeling about scheduling a photo session during COVID-19. I’ve outlined my extensive COVID-19 precautions here. In addition, I’ve always required that my clients agree to a strict Maternal & Infant Health policy. In fact, it’s included within all of my client contracts. Your health and peace of mind are important to me, which is why I’ve put these measures in place.
Q: I have no idea what kind of location would work best for photos. Can your recommend anywhere?
A: Yes! I have a list of locations to fit almost any vision you have for your maternity photos. On the other hand, some mamas already know where they want their maternity photos taken, and that’s fine too!
