How Sarah Finicle Photography Creates A Beautiful Portrait Experience for Expecting Moms


Hey there, expecting moms! As a toddler mom myself, I remember so well the excitement of seeing those two pink lines, the prenatal appointments, the nervousness, the joy, the morning sickness, and the scary-ness of becoming a parent. I remember going to take maternity portraits with my husband, and the wonderful memories we made capturing that. I wish I would have had a unique experience for my own maternity photos like the one I offer now to my clients! I love creating heirloom artwork for my mama clients' homes, guiding them through the process of creating something gorgeous and custom made for their family. I love pampering my expecting mamas by providing professional hair and makeup, a client closet full of amazing dresses, and showing mom how special she really is- in this blog post, I will lay out the entire beautiful portrait experience every SFP client gets to have here at Sarah Finicle Photography.

The process

Let's talk about that incredible baby bump glow! Our SFP Maternity portrait sessions focus on capturing the raw emotions and the developing bond between you and your little one on the way. It's about cherishing the beauty of this unique journey into motherhood, and freezing this season of your life for just a moment. You will get to create heirloom quality wall art, albums, and so much more to be able to pass down to your little one, and their own little ones someday!

Planning your Dream Maternity Session

First, every SFP client begins with their planning call. This is a virtual call held between mom and dad and the photographer, where we will discuss everything that Mom has on her heart in regards to her upcoming session. We will talk locations, wardrobe, hair and makeup, wardrobe for your partner, and more! Our expecting mamas always feel excited and relieved of any worries about their session after having their virtual call with Sarah.


Part of the wonderful SFP experience is the excitement of choosing one of our beautiful, bump friendly dresses to wear during your time in front of the camera. Sarah Finicle Photography has a carefully curated wardrobe collection just for Mama - these dresses will always look amazing in

the light and dreamy photography style that SFP is known for, are high end brands, and most of our dresses can be worn during pregnancy and beyond! If you are the kind of mom who doesn't know what would look best for a photo session, what looks the most flattering for your bump, or lacks the time to search for the perfect dress before session day - we've got you covered! In addition to the wardrobe for Mom, a styling virtual call will be held in order to hand style the rest of your family, and a styling board is also provided to help our clients get a feel for choosing the right clothing options on their own for dad, and any siblings who may join in on the photo session. It's all a part of the SFP Experience!


The other amazing aspect of having your maternity portraits with Sarah Finicle Photography is that each Mama has the option to get dolled up by our very own professional hair and makeup artist, Kasey Smith, owner of Kasey Smith Beauty! I have worked with Kasey personally and professionally, and she is one of the most warm and friendly human beings I have ever met - she will ensure that every single one of our Mama clients feels like a queen, looking perfectly camera ready and comfortable in her own skin!


Your portraits are your legacy in the making. Sarah Finicle Photography specializes in crafting timeless, heirloom-quality wall art and custom products that encapsulate the emotions and beauty of this extraordinary phase in your life, ensuring they become cherished family heirlooms. After your photo session, you may have a same day or same week viewing of your maternity photos. Our mama clients get to select only the images that they love! Once they have chosen the images they like, we will get to create something absolutely special and beautiful to cherish forever! She will get to see using special software what her wall art could look like in her very own home. She will get to see and feel real samples of our heirloom albums, luxury prints, and more! There are several options to choose from. We want our clients to feel excited about their portraits and what you can turn them into. We love guiding and helping to create with our very own professional expertise heirloom albums, wall art such as frames and canvases, luxury prints, and more for our all of our clients. We love taking stress off of Mama by helping her to get this task accomplished right away to be able to hang on her wall to enjoy for life.
