Thank you for considering His & Hers for your maternity memories. We invite you to learn more about the fine-art, landscape-inspired style Darcy uses to capture this beautiful milestone. “Mother + Mother Nature” is often how Darcy’s artwork is described. Capturing this once-in-a-lifetime stage is one of the artist’s favorite sessions; it’s a privilege to be part of these memories!
Please take a moment to check out the artist’s portfolio so you can get an idea of the style of images we create and so you know what to expect in your own gallery: http://hisandhersphotography.com/portfolio/iowa-maternity-pregnancy-photographer/
Our Maternity Sessions:
- Sessions held outdoors and take advantage of Iowa’s changing landscapes.
- Sessions photographed 1-2 hours before sunset.
- Mothers are 28-34 weeks pregnant. Please book after week 12.
- Indoor studio sessions are available for winter mamas. These are 20 minutes, 5-7 image gallery.
- Beautiful gowns and accessories are available for our mothers.
$200 Creative Fee is a retainer that reserves your date, covers your session, the time and talent of the photographer, as well as fine-art editing and retouching of 25 images in your gallery. Creative Fee does not include any prints or products. Option to add-on family portraits to include siblings +$50.
$100 Creative Fee for Mama-Mini: Available only during harsh winter weather (approx. Dec-Feb) as an add-on to newborn portrait session. 20 minutes, mama only, in-studio. 5-7 images to choose from in the gallery. Viewing held simultaneously with newborn Viewing & Ordering session, about 3-4 weeks after baby’s portrait session.
Canvas art, albums, announcement cards, gift prints, wall prints, boutique framing, and digital collections are all available. Prints start at $48.
Because we only accept a limited number of commissions, we have a $400 minimum product commitment per session. Families may invest $400 – $7000 on portraits, but we keep our courtesy minimum low to remain accessible to all budgets.
Viewing and Ordering:
About 3-4 weeks after your session, we invite you back to the studio to see your images. You will see your gallery of beautifully edited images, as well as all the gorgeous products available to you. Your order will be placed at this Viewing & Ordering Session, and we will let you know when you can anticipate your products to arrive. Typical turn around time is about 7-10 business days for prints, longer for specialty items such as albums and frames.
*note* Mama-Mini viewings are held simultaneously with baby’s viewing & ordering session, 3-4 weeks after the newborn photo session. Rather than a $400 commitment for maternity, the mama-mini sessions have a reduced combined minimum product commitment of $600 for both maternity mini + newborn sessions together.
Getting real, beautiful images of your loved ones on the wall is something that is important in our own home, and we know it’s important to our clients as well. We have scoured available vendors and discovered products that we’re proud to show in our studio, home, gift to love ones, and we believe you’ll love them as well. We offer swoon-worthy wall prints, gift prints, albums, canvases, custom frames, and announcement cards. While digital collections are available, we are artists and our goal is to provide artwork; we can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous products!
We know sharing online is important to you, which is why we gift web-sharing images of the artwork you purchase as gift prints or wall portraits for you to share on social media. There is no charge for these web-sharing images – it’s just a courtesy we provide so your loved ones can see your favorite portraits. Copyrights of our artwork remain with the artist. Our artwork may not be scanned, photographed, screen captured, edited, cropped, manipulated, altered, sold, or used without our written permission. This is our livelihood; we appreciate your integrity.
