I cannot begin to explain why maternity portraits are so important to capture! Think about this for a moment... being pregnant is something you may only do once or twice in your lifetime. As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline (it is currently at a rate of 1.78) that really means families might only be experiencing the joy of pregnancy once or twice in their life.

This journey is definitely something special and worth remembering! This is also the perfect time to celebrate your only child becoming an older sibling. Celebrate this important new role with your older child while sneaking in some really great bonding moments with just the two or three of you. The portraits of an older sibling hugging and kissing their Mama's belly are always my favorite and these moments make for such an adorable memory to display on the wall! I find myself smiling and reflecting on my past pregnancies, every time I pass my own hallway memories during my daily routines. 
Make your maternity session a day of pampering and feeling gorgeous- Photography by Cat offers a collection of designer maternity gowns for your session to help you look and feel your best!  These are available at no additional cost to my clients. Also, if you book both maternity and newborn sessions, you will receive a "Bump to Baby" discount on your maternity session. That is a win-win! 

I will help you create the perfect wall displays for your family's art! Together, we can create your own custom collection to match your vision- while finding the best match for your budget and style! 
When you choose Photography by Cat, I know you want something very special for your family! You are choosing the best the Lansing area has to offer for fine-art Maternity & Newborn Portraiture!
