Maternity Photos

At Happy Chick Photography, we LOVE pregnant bellies!

Welcome to seeing yourself in a way you may never have before!

We are proud to have been awarded one of the "Best Maternity Photographers in Overland Park, KS" by Expertise in both 2017 and 2018! As well as being featured by BloggerLocal in their list of "10 Best Kansas City Newborn Photographers"!  

Your maternity session is about feeling deeply at ease and letting go of any anxieties or judgement. During your session, you'll find everything else falls away, except for a new and beautiful appreciation for yourself, and a lasting connection to the miracle of carrying a child.  ​

Maternity photos are best done 4-6 weeks prior to your due date (but we can do them anytime you wish. We also can book your newborn photos as well, click here for more info.

Session fee is only $75 whether you come to the studio or do an outdoor photography session.



A maternity session lasts about one hour and can include your significant other and children, if you wish.  The session fee is $75 and holds your spot on our calendar.  Please note that this is non-refundable unless you cancel within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment.  If baby comes early, we can always apply the session fee toward the newborn session.  There is no charge to reschedule to another date/time when necessary.  

Belly & Baby Program

Take advantage of special pricing with our Belly and Baby Package, which includes both maternity and newborn sessions.  Enrollment in the program is just $99 and that covers your session fees for both sessions (regular price is $150).

Plus, you get 10% off your order.

The $99 is due to reserve your time on the calendar and is non-refundable unless you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment.  There is never any problem to reschedule to another date.

Maternity sessions are best taken around 30-33 weeks of pregnancy, so booking around week 20-25 of your pregnancy is recommended.


A typical maternity session usually takes 45 minutes and allows time for clothing changes and includes your significant other and any siblings, if you choose.  


I have some wraps you are welcome to, but please plan on bringing your own outfits.  If using my wraps, please bring a nude colored, strapless bra.You can go casual with a button-up shirt that we can unbutton to expose the belly.  If you will be in a dress, please make sure it is tight fitting so we can see that round belly.  Feel free to bring props such as ultrasound photos, baby shoes or any accessories that are special to you.  Manicured hands are helpful as we may be doing closeups of hands on belly.  (This applies to dad's too! -- make sure to look at his nails prior to the session).    Most of all, be yourself and do what makes you happy and comfortable in your glowing pregnant skin!
