Does anyone know of a photographer that does pregnancy photos? I am looking to have photos done in my last month of pregnancy. Have you done this? Were you happy with the results? I am finding that it is much more expensive than I thought. This is my second child and a good chance it's my last pregnancy. I really have enjoyed my pregnancies and would like a keepsake like this.

Marcia at Modernmadonnas.com she's WONDERFUL. I LOVE HER... she's a wonderful woman and wonderful photographer. We had her capture both of our pregnancies. She's amazing. I felt completely comfortable and beautiful through her lens. My 2yr old also opened up to her and we were able to get some beautiful shots with her too.
I feel blessed to have found her. My sister also had photos taken, unfortuately by someone else. She and I both whole heartedly agree there is a HUGE difference in the quality from person to person.
I have recommended her to all (she even does family photos too)(which is a big deal as I don't reccommend anyone)... Anyone who has seen my photos have been in awe! ck her out.
Blessings.. Rebecca
email me and I'll be happy to send you a photo

I also do maternity portraits if you haven't already booked with someone, please check out my work at http://www.emphotography.net/
I work out of my home in Oak Park, or I can come to you. We have plenty of time for the shoot, so we can include your partner and son in some too. Or get a few portraits of your son, while we're at it. I do color/B&W, conceptual/fine art or documentary, so I am not limited with style.
If you have any questions please call ###-###-####.

Hi S.,

I took my maternity photos at Sadies in Northbrook, Il. They have a website you can visit. If you are looking for something more private, Diana Roberts in Elmhurst has her own studio. She also has a website and does beautiful work.

Good luck,
J.

I highly recommend Jenny Fontaine (www.fontainephotography.com). She is a true artist and she shoots digital, so she can give you both color and b&w. I was very happy with her work and have had her take 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and yearly photos of both my boys and our family. She comes to your house or any location you agree upon which is very convenient and private. She has very reasonable rates.

Hi there!
I used a woman I found off craigs list, and loved her! Her name is Kaosong, and I think you can even look at our maternity photos. (It was her first time doing these photos). She's kinda new to the whole photography thing, so she comes at a good discount, but she's very friendly and we felt extremely comfortable around her. Here's her e-mail, and if you want to check out our photos, ask her for the her web page address, and we're under Hurley. Good luck! [email protected]____.com

We used Jodie Garland to take first year photos of our son. She charges a very reasonable flat fee and gives you the rights to the photos to do your own prints. She also does pregnancy photos. She is in Skokie.

This is a wonderful idea! But it is very expensive too! I used a woman in Warrenville, her company was called Modern Madonnas. She was great and the pictures were beautiful! I used her for my first pregnancy and my husband took pictures for my next two pregnancies using color and b&w in our yard with the other kids. Not quite as awe-inspiring but still good memories.

We used Ketzi Chacon and she was wonderful. We actually purchased a package for maternity + first year photos. She came to our house, though she does have a studio now, which was easy and comfortable for us. She is more affordable than a lot of the others I saw online (her sitting fees are around $100, I think, ours were less because of the package, and the prints are around $20 and up each). Her website is www.ketzichacon.com and my belly is first in the maternity gallery :)

Very affordable and she goes to you and does a good job, you'll enjoy the experience, I send you a link so you can check her work out, If you decide to get her tell her Maria recommended you. This maternity photoshoots go from $200 and up elsewhere, she does it cheaper than that and includes the potraits, cd of all images and the photoshoot to the location of your choice.

Hi S.,

Check with Kristy Ralston ###-###-####, [email protected]____.com). She's a professional photographer, who used to do photojournalist style weddings for Artisan Events. She then got into post-partum doula work, and she's a nanny now. Kristy's freelance business specializes in kid photography and she's now doing maternity work. She did a session with my family this fall, and we ended up ordering a whole bunch of prints.

good luck! Feel free to mention my name to her.
