The Maternity Experience

Maternity photography celebrates this journey by allowing you the time and space to reflect on what’s to come while documenting your and your family’s joy and excitement as you prepare to meet this little one. These images will be a visual reminder of the incredible transformation your body has gone through and the love and anticipation you have for your new baby.

I will guide you through the entire process, from location planning, to creating vision boards for styling your family, to a relaxed and authentic photo session, to helping you design stunning heirloom artwork to bring your images to life in your home. I'll help you with every little detail, so you can spend more time loving on your beautiful family.

Documenting the beauty of your pregnancy and the joy of welcoming a new baby into your family

Love what you see here and just know you want the same relaxed + authentic images of your Portland pregnancy?! Perfect, let's work together!

Get in touch through my contact form. and let's create some beautiful photographs + artwork of you and your family that you will cherish forever. 

I recommend reaching out early in your second trimester to ensure availability. I only take a limited number of sessions each month. 

1. Say Hello

Once you've confirmed that we are the perfect fit to work together, I'll send you a booking proposal. You will have access to view my calendar and choose a date that works best for you. For maternity sessions, I recommend scheduling between weeks 26-35 of your pregnancy.

You will also complete your session agreement and invoice for the retainer to officially reserve your session date on my calendar. 

2. Schedule it

Prior to your session, you will receive a session prep guide which will walk you through everything you need to know to prepare for your maternity session. At this time, you'll select a studio or outdoor session. If an outdoor session, you can select your favorite spot from my location guide.

You will also receive a style board with inspiration for outfits for your entire family. You are welcome to borrow from my client wardrobe (60+ size inclusive dresses).

This is also the time for you to reach out to my preferred hair & makeup artist who will pamper you on your session day. She excels at creating an enhanced natural look and she's amazing!

3. Planning it

Your maternity session will focus a lot on you, the pregnant person. While we will also include the entire family for some beautiful family memories. There will be extra opportunity for some quiet, relaxed moments for you to soak up this moment with your growing baby. 

Maternity sessions typically last about 30-60 minutes. We will work efficiently to create gorgeous images for you to always remember this precious time.

Studio sessions, offer the opportunity for 1-2 outfit options. For outdoor sessions, we stick with one outfit. 

4. Your Session

About 3 weeks after your maternity session, we will schedule a time for you to view your images via an online reveal + ordering appointment. You will have 48 hours to view your images, select your favorites, and decide on artwork. This all takes place from the comfort of your own home.

Purchased digital images are delivered within 24 hours of placing your order and artwork is ready for delivery in about 6-8 weeks. I'll schedule a time with you to deliver everything to your home. Making the entire process as easy as possible for you.

I had a great time working with Ashlie at her studio.

I went in for a 37 week maternity & mini family session and she exceeded my expectations. The pictures were perfect and I am really happy with them. We will definitely work with Ashlie again in the future.

Ashlie has an amazing eye and vision for her shoots!

I got to do a wonderful maternity shoot with her that made me feel like a goddess! Highly recommend her. 

maternity Session


I've had photos taken by Ashlie twice now - one maternity session a few years ago, and one family session more recently. To this day, my maternity photos are some of my absolute favorite photos!

Ashlie goes the extra mile and pays attention to the details, which makes each session so special. She had a whole rack of lovely dresses to borrow for the maternity session, and she even surprised my boys with little treat and activity bags after our family session. Highly recommend.
