FREE photo sessions | Utah maternity photographer

I am currently looking to expand my portfolio in the areas of maternity, birth and newborn photography. So I am giving away some free sessions in these areas!

Models will receive a free maternity, birth or newborn session, as well as (1) 8x10 and (2) 5x7 prints from their session.

Maternity photography: Maternity photos are best done in the 7th or 8th month of pregnancy--far enough along to have a nice "baby bump", but not so far that you are incredibly uncomfortable and ready to pop! :c) These sessions can be done pretty much anywhere that you feel comfortable. If you want the classic look of a black background we can set up a make-shift studio in your home. Or the pictures can be done in the baby's nursery or other parts of your home. But don't forget that outdoors can be an incredible backdrop for this type of art as well. Wherever you choose to do your session, please keep in mind that I am primarily a natural-light photographer and will need adequate light to get the best pictures for you.

Newborn photography: Newborn sessions are best done in the first 10 days of the baby's life, while baby is still curling up and sleeping a lot. These sessions are done in your home (or a relative's home if that's better for you) and are very relaxed. I am happy to wait for you to feed the baby, rock the baby, whatever is necessary to keep her content and sleepy....perfect for sweet newborn photos.

Birth photography: This is a fairly new concept for most people, and not everyone is comfortable with it. That's completely understandable, and believe me, as a mother of 4 I know what their hesitancy might be. But let me assure you that birth photography is an amazing way to document your birth experience. The photos are all done in a very tasteful, discrete way and my presence in your birthing room will be quiet and non-invasive. If you would like to see some beautiful examples of birth photography, please watch THIS SLIDESHOW, visit

If you are interested in being a model for a maternity, newborn or birth session, please email me at Jami@lifeinmomentsphotography.com, or call me at 801-792-8213.

Until next time... Jami

I definately want to do a maternity session! I did one when I was pregnant with Alex, and I was so excited about it, but so not happy with how the pics turned out. I know I'd be able to trust you to do it right, though!

I'd also like to give the birth session a try. It's honestly a little bit outside my comfort zone, but the pics on those sites are so beautiful, and it really would be a one-of-a-kind experience. Plus, the baby's birth will be planned (I'll be being induced), so I'll be able to let you know the exact day. That might be a bit easier for you to plan for than a random phonecall in the middle of the night. :)

Yay! I'm so excited!

Oh my! That is one of the most beautiful things I have experienced. I got all teary eyed just watching. What a fantastic gift to have ... I wish I had something like that with both of my kids. If I were preggers, I'd have you do mine Jami. I'm sure you'll do a great job.
