I believe that maternity photography is a meaningful, connection rich experience that is so worthy of being photographed. The season of carrying your baby is so short and goes by so fast. This unique season with your loved ones is completely worthwhile and are immensely meaningful to look back on for years to come. I approach these sessions with that meaning and connection leading the session. Moments of sweet softness and moments of bold strength- these connections lead the session. I guide you through prompts and poses that make for a truly connected experience and photos that will always bring you warmth and will make you "feel all the feels" for years to come.
Pregnancy is. so many things. It is beauty, strength, resilience, softness, exhaustion, joy, expectant, difficult, empowering.. above all, it's LOVE. This incredibly special kind of love that radiates off of you mamas in the most emotive way. It's also an intimate and incredibly connected season of for you and your partner as you prepare to welcome your sweet baby into your family. Have other kiddos? Such a fun season of expectant joy for every member of your family. Whatever stage of life you fit in, your pregnancy is a meaninful and life changing jorney that is so fully worthy of being remembered.
As an aunt to 13+ kiddos, I started my photography business by taking photos of my nieces + nephews from maternity, to birth, to newborn and through all the family photos thereafter. There is such a sweet specialness in newborn photos that I feel so passionate about. Whether baby #1 or baby #5, I believe so strongly in having these sweet seasons of life documented. The preservation if their littleness in photos is so valuable and it's even more special being able to look back and see yourself and your loved family members interacting together and with your newborn. There's nothing like it! I'll also mention here, I've never met a parent who has regretted getting these photos done. This season is just too short not to.

"Kenzi has been taking our family photos exclusively for almost 2 years now. Each time, we experience an intimate lifestyle photography session. Kenzi’s work is unique in that it feels like a family date! It’s intimate and creates a family memory while we’re being captured. It reminds us of the love we have and what makes us special and precious. Our whole family absolutely looks forward to it. We always leave our photo times more connected as a family than when we came. I always print my favorites as soon as possible, though it’s hard to choose because I could frame each one! Thank you, Kenzi! Book her today! And watch your years be captured authentically and beautifully!"
I always recommend two outfit changes for mom! Doing this adds a lot of variety! I also recommend dresses with a lot of movement and at least one outfit being comprised of neutral and muted colors. I also have a full guide i share once you book and a client closet!
I see you are based in Salem, do you travel?
