Maternity & Newborn Portrait Information

Maternity Portraits, Unmatched

Joel is well known as a pregnancy, newborn and baby photographer.  His newborn portraits are in high demand, often scheduling weeks and sometimes even months in advance.  If you are pregnant or have a new born baby, call early to ensure you get an appointment while your newborn child is tiny. Bring them by on the way home from the hospital, not really.  Just remember after ten days your baby loses its newborn look and begins to be a baby.  Baby's first year and grow up plans for toddlers and children are available!  Watch your baby grow throughout his/her first year of life with natural true to life natural light infant and toddler portraits that show off your baby the way you see him or her.


Maternity photography & Pregnancy Portraits with Studio Lighting

Professional studio lighting is used exclusively in Joel’s work. Studio lighting not only removes the unpredictable nature of the weather & natural light, it affords Joel the opportunity to spend more time with his clients, helping each woman accentuate her natural movements and expressions, imparting her own unique personality and emotion on each photograph. From a visual standpoint, Joel expertly controls the shadows and highlights within his maternity photographs to create visually stunning images of unmatched tonal range and beauty, elevating the unique lines of each pregnant woman’s body into an intimately timeless work of photographic art.


Professionally Edited Maternity Portraits

After your session, Joel uses his talented artistic eye to choose a selection of the best images from each session to go through a detailed editing process. Chosen from many  raw photographs, the selected pictures will be custom cropped to enhance composition, expertly adjusted for tonal range and completely edited to ensure flawless presentation. This time intensive (and far too often neglected) process, is just part of what separates Joel’s maternity photographs from other photographers work and enables his prints to be rightfully called, Fine Art.
