For the expecting mom who loves to document every milestone & celebrate the life growing inside of you
That moment you found out that you are expecting, you were filled with overwhelming emotions - the joy, the excitement, the love! That sigh of relief knowing that the precious baby you’ve prayed so hard for is finally given to you. The baby that will make your family complete.
Your journey to motherhood is unlike any other & it needs to be carefully documented so when you look back at this time in your life, you will remember every detail of it. The way you look at your belly every time you feel those flutters & kicks, those flaky newborn feet, the adorable yawn of a newborn baby, and everything in between.
Documenting every thing from your pregnancy to when you’re finally holding your baby in your arms, sets my soul on fire. There’s nothing like freezing these precious moments for you & your family to look at and enjoy for the rest of your life.
So let's celebrate the arrival of the newest addition to your family in the best way I know how.
I have associate photographers who do Maternity & Newborn Sessions on my behalf when I am booked or unavailable. It's also a great way to get the TBP Experience on a smaller budget.
My associate photographers were trained directly by me on location scouting, lighting, shooting techniques, posing workflows, & client interaction. They also completed assignments and were provided feedback all throughout the training period. The associate photographers were carefully chosen by me based on their positive and upbeat personalities, but most importantly the same passion for loving & serving clients as I do. Therefore, if you book with a TBP associate, you can be rest assured that you are going to get the same quality of photos & client experience that TBP has been known for.
COMING SOON: There is currently 1 more associate photographer in training and she will be taking on paid clients as soon as she's ready.
"She made me feel so beautiful in the midst of a season of feeling not so pretty (pregnancy). And my maternity photos are better than I could imagine!"

“Belle is an absolute pleasure to work with...”
Belle is an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped me plan the perfect outfits, the perfect location for our photos, and helped pick out props to use. Our maternity photos are absolutely stunning!!! She was able to capture precious memories for us that we will always be grateful for!
Warrenton, Virginia Maternity Session
“She is very good at interacting with kids...”
Belle was absolutely amazing. She was extremely responsive throughout the entire process. She provided us with outfit recommendations for the family and sent a comprehensive guide to prepare for the shoot. She was so thorough prior to my due date which helped relieve stress and preparation after the baby was born. The shoot felt so natural. She seemed to blend in to the surroundings and was capturing natural moments and interactions. She was also very good at interacting with and encouraging our 2 year old and 7 year old. The photos we received were stunning and everything I was hoping for. She was worth every penny!
Fairfax, Virginia Newborn Session
“She made us feel comfortable...”
We couldn’t be more happy with our maternity pictures! Belle is super easy to work with and really put us at ease in front of the camera! Our last experience with another photographer was a little stressful especially with two rambunctious boys, so we were a little apprehensive. But she totally made the boys comfortable and everything went so smoothly! She prepared us for the shoot way in advance and even had suggestions on outfits and what would look best for the season, which I totally appreciated!
Woodbridge, Virginia Maternity Session
“She feels like a close friend by the day of the shoot...”
Belle was by far the best photographer we have ever worked with. Her responsiveness and level of communication prior to our shoot was unparalleled to anyone else. She feels like a close friend by the day of the shoot.
In our home she was a calming force that we needed that day. We are new parents and the day could have been so chaotic with our baby on an unpredictable schedule at the time. Not only was Belle understanding of that, she was encouraging us to slow down and take breaks. She kept the process equally moving along but with ease and nurturing that we all needed.
Her photos are beautiful!! We couldn’t be happier to have such an important milestone captured so perfectly – because you don’t get a redo! She even thought to make sure we included personal touches and she captured small details of the nursery. I was amazed!
Reston, Virginia Newborn Session
“She is great with kids & keeps the session so relaxed...”
Belle is simply amazing! We used her for family photos and later newborn photos. Both times I have been so impressed with the photos. She is so easy to work with and great with kids. She captures incredible images while keeping the sessions so relaxed. I love that she gets to know us as a family and makes the sessions so personable. She is an extremely talented photographer and we can’t wait to have her capture more of our family’s special moments.
