At Happy Chick Photography,
we LOVE pregnant bellies!
Attention new moms-t0-be! Get ready to celebrate you and the beautiful miracle of motherhood!
For your maternity photos, the ideal timing for capturing the glow and excitement is around 4-6 weeks before your due date (but don't worry, we can accommodate any timing that you desire).
We have been proudly recognized as one of the "Best Maternity Photographers in Overland Park KS" by Expertise in both 2017 and 2018, and was voted a Kansas City "Favorites" in 2023 by our happy customers. We know what it takes to make new moms feel extraordinary while capturing that special beauty. Our passion and dedication have also been featured by BloggerLocal in their list of "10 Best Kansas City Newborn Photographers."
Join us on this journey where you and your baby bump take center stage while we create timeless images that you'll cherish forever.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?
Maternity sessions are best taken around 4-6 weeks prior to your due date. It is best to contact us to schedule your session at least 3 weeks prior to that to make sure I can fit you in. If baby arrives ahead of schedule, any money already paid can be applied toward the newborn session.
HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION LAST?
A typical maternity session usually takes about an hour and allows time for clothing changes. We can also include your significant other and children if you choose. Sessions can be in-studio or outdoors.
DO YOU PROVIDE OUTFITS?
We have maternity dresses and fabric wraps that you are welcome to use in the studio free of charge. We will go over all the details during a phone consultation so I will have everything I need to provide you with the beautiful artwork you are looking for.
If you are wanting to do silhouettes, please bring a well fitting bra that doesn't have any lace or ribbon that may show in your profile. The same with undies. Nudity is always an option and always discreet.
DO YOU PROVIDE PROPS?
The props I like to use are personal ones so you'll need to provide those. Things like baby shoes, ultrasound photos, monogramed blankets or heirloom rattles, etc., all work great!
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I THINK ABOUT?
Manicured hands are helpful as we may be doing closeups of hands on belly. This applies to dad's too! Please look at his nails prior to the shoot to remove any paint, dirt under nails. etc. Also, be aware of elastic waistbands prior to the maternity session! If we are photographing an exposed belly, you won't want an elastic line across the middle. Again, we will go over all of these things at the in-person consultation.
