"Isn't she lovely?" - stevie wonder

Maternity

Can you believe it? YOU'RE HAVING A BABY! (sorry to shout, I just got a little excited there). Seriously though, how amazing is that?! As a mom of five, I remember all the little kicks, midnight bathroom runs, and trying to tie my shoes (unsuccessfully, of course). I will make sure you are comfortable through every step of working with me. I want to spoil you during the session and then when you see your gallery, SHOW you how incredible you are. And hey, if you haven't heard it yet today,.... you are doing a GREAT JOB growing that baby, mama!

Rebecca: Mommy & Me Spring Maternity Session

Julia: In-home Maternity Session

Amaya: Outdoor Summer Maternity Session

When do we get to meet? I'm SO ready. I recommend between 35 and 38 weeks for the ideal time to do maternity photos, so be sure to get on my calendar!
Feel free to bring your significant other, or baby's brothers and sisters to the session. And if you'd like to bring some little baby booties for a prop or two, that would be  a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e.

The Maternity Experience

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

I have a full session guide upon booking which helps you prep for our shoot, know the colors and patterns that photograph best, and I include helpful links of where to shop.
I also have a collection of maternity gowns in my client closet you may choose from as a courtesy for booking with me. One thing's for sure. You're going to look GREAT.

WHAT TO WEAR?

"What if I don't know what to do in front of the camera?" - this is one of my most common questions, and one of my favorites to answer. I've got you! I pride myself in making my clients feel comfortable during our time together. I will gently guide you into flattering poses and natural moments so you don't ever have to wonder what to do. 

I WILL GENTLY DIRECT YOU

I'm SO happy you're here. Feel free to look through my work (can you even imagine the magic we are going to create?). Perhaps you want to know when to schedule maternity photos (please see above!!), a little more about me, how pricing works, or how to book your session... it's all here so please stay, get comfy, and make yourself at home in my little corner of the internet.

Any questions? I'm happy to help! Please contact me here. 

Take a look around!

Step 1 of 5

I'm looking forward to working with you. Once you've decided you just can't live without "The Jeanna Hayes maternity experience," be sure to contact me and say hello! I will be over the moon to connect with you.

Before your session we will discuss options for a date, time, and location. I would love to hear about your "vision" for your shoot (if you don't have one just yet, no problem - that's what I'm here for!).


Please say hello!

Step 2 of 5

After we've decided on a date, time, and location, I will send over a questionnaire (which helps me get to know you more), a contract, and an invoice. Completion of the those will make everything official and secure your spot in my calendar! 

At this point I will send over a detailed session guide which will help you get the very most out of your photos with me. Because I pride myself in image quality, consistency, and unique style, there are a few steps to take with outfit selection and preparations. The good news is that it's not complicated at all! I also have a client closet with couture maternity gowns available for your use if you wish.

Step 3 of 5

The day we've all been waiting for! (You look great by the way.)

One of the best parts of working with me is the actual session. Your experience during our time together is very important to me. I want you to feel relaxed and at ease (Most of my first time clients tell me how surprised they are by how easygoing the session is!).
I will pose you in the most flattering angles, and guide you so you never have to wonder what to do next. Your comfort is of absolute importance to me. 
I love meeting new friends and my greatest hope is to continue a lifelong relationship of capturing your family photos from the very first moments... which is now!

The big day *cue confetti*

Step 4 of 5

Two weeks after your session, I will send you a very special link. Get the tissues ready, and enjoy looking at your images. You're a goddess!

From this gallery you will select your digital image package, prints, and products, which I will guide you through. 

I'm here with you every step of the way.


Enjoy your beautiful images

First, let me tell you what you GET when you book with me.

I am an award-winning, internationally published photographer who absolutely prides myself in the quality and consistency of my work. I will provide you with the images of your dreams so you never regret getting photos taken that you LOVE,...and not just ones you settled for.

You deserve it.

"I looked high and low for a photographer that has my same style and passion for all things timeless and whimsical. When I found Jeanna I knew that a match made in heaven was about to happen. She completely brought my newborn shoot dreams to life. 

When the big day came she made sure we had proper lighting in our home and wore a mask to keep us all safe. I could tell her main goal was to have our pictures be 100% perfection. 

She is sweet, caring and amazing with kids. She was patient and understanding when I had to nurse or our sweet baby boy was being camera shy. She far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use her again. The newborn shoot was beyond anything we could have imagined!  Worth every penny."

"I’m the happiest when I work with Jeanna because her tone is friendly and the environment is fun. She’s patient with our child that has special needs which is a huge plus. My whole family is comfortable with her and it always make for beautiful photos.

What makes Jeanna stand out from others is her attention to detail. Whether it’s commercial or family photos the execution is always flawless. With each shoot I know I’m going to receive perfect photos.

Jeanna always has a fun, natural environment while shooting. Her talent is unmatched and her photos are timeless. It’s always a pleasure."

"There are too many wonderful things to write about Jeanna. I will start with the fact that I will never have another human take my photo again. Her understanding of light and color and posing and framing make for the absolute perfect shot every time. Every holiday card I put together I have people begging for her contact info. 

Perhaps above all of that is who she is. She makes even the most uncomfortable and awkward people look like naturals and can use her photography sorcery to capture these incredible images of my kids (who are absolute tornados). We love her and have told her that she will be taking our photos for as long as she can hold a camera."

“Jeanna’s photography is magical! She has raw and genuine talent that is hard to find. She takes the ordinary, everyday moments and turns them into beautiful artwork. Her work is timeless. She has a way of capturing the sweetest moments with my children that I will get to hang onto long after they are grown.

My family loves sessions with Jeanna, she is fun and passionate about what she does. Even when the kids aren’t cooperating Jeanna works her magic and our photos are always gorgeous! Friends and family who see my pictures always want to know who my photographer is. Jeanna is a true artist.”

“We've worked with Jeanna for two family sessions and have loved working with her! As a family who does not do photo sessions very often, it is important to us to make them count when we do. Jeanna did not disappoint and I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on our photos when they were used for our holiday card!

We have two young boys who never stop moving and Jeanna was so great with them. I swore there was no way we were going to get the photos I had hoped for with how tough it seemed to get my boys to stay still. When we received them, I was beyond happy with the quality of the photos she was able to capture. We had so many amazing family photos to choose from and use. We will have these photos forever, and I am so grateful to Jeanna for doing such a wonderful job and capturing our family so perfectly.”
