The Maternity Experience

When you step into the maternity studio, your family will immediately feel at ease. The beautifully styled sunroom looks more like a home than a bare backdrop. It's as cozy and bright as a favorite room in your own house. It's the perfect space to highlight your bump and your family's connection with minimal distractions. You'll also find a separate spacious fitting room filled with dresses for you, outfits for babies and children, and even some shirts for dad (hello, time and money savings). These rooms and more are part of my home in Castle Rock, CO, and I am so grateful to share this designated space with you!

I'm a mama and I've been through this whole process myself (twice). I invite you to trust my vision to capture your family in a timeless yet modern aesthetic. If all of this resonates with you, then let's start discussing how we can create the most meaningful artwork you'll ever purchase in your lifetime.

the easiest decision you'll make when it comes to your pregnancy journey


Searching for a Denver maternity photographer? Maybe you want some intimate maternity photos to remember how your body changed to grow your family. Or you want to document every part of this stage of creating a new life. 

Send me a message so we can start to discuss what's the best fit for you- the multi-session package, a single session, or the petite session.  Packages are my clients' favorites to ensure we don't miss anything important- from your bump, to your new baby, and even milestones throughout their first year. 

1. Say Hello

Once you've decided whether you'll be booking a single maternity session or the multi-session package, we'll get it on the calendar!

I typically schedule maternity when mama is 32-36 weeks along. Your bump begins to round out at this time and your body is still comfortable to move around into various body-accentuating poses.

2. Schedule it

Once booked, you'll begin to receive all of my planning materials to make this process as stress-free as possible.

I invite you to come into the studio to meet me ahead of time and have a private fitting in my client closet. This helps you feel confident in the available choices and have undergarments planned. There's usually time for 2-3 looks for mama at the session!

If coming in before your session doesn't fit your schedule, you can view my client closet through Style & Select and send me your picks. This tool also allows you to shop for other items you might like to purchase online separately. 

3. Planning it

Relax and let's have some fun! I swear the hardest part is just getting everyone clean and in the car. It's all easy after that!

When you arrive, I'll have your selected wardrobe steamed and ready to go. You can always bring personal items of your own that you'd like wear, too!

Your partner and any children are always invited to join in the session if that's your vision. We'll cycle through tons of beautiful poses (with and without them). 

4. Your Session

After your session, I will gather the best images together in an online proof gallery. You will then select the images that you'd like me to hand edit and include in your fully retouched gallery. 

Your package is fully customizable, which means you only purchase what you'll treasure!

The investment

Our experience with Alyssum was so seamless! She is quick to respond, clear with her communications, and incredibly talented. I also loved the outfit choices she had available for me to choose from to wear for our session (this was an important option for me to have as it just makes life so much easier with a newborn!!) She was also really sweet and engaging with our toddler which made everything go smoothly during our shoot. We love our photos so much and definitely recommend Alyssum!

Alyssum was great to work with for our daughter's newborn pictures. We booked months in advance and she was very flexible, had incredible communication, and was transparent through the whole process! Her client closet was amazing and took the stress off of the whole process. Alyssum was amazing at keeping our daughter comfortable while working quickly. She also was so patient and kind with our new parents, sleep-deprived selves. She was considerate and made sure poses were comfortable for me post-partum. She captured the sweetest moments that we will look back on for a lifetime. We can’t wait to book more sessions with Alyssum in the future! Thank you, Alyssum!

Through crankiness, diaper changes, and kiddo unpredictability, Alyssum is kind, thoughtful, patient, and plays and laughs along with my kids AND somehow manages to capture the most perfect pictures! I will never use another photographer to capture my family photos!!

Alyssum is the most incredible photographer I have ever had the privilege to work with. I feel seen in her photos. I never have to worry about an unflattering angle, she guides you through where to look to help avoid those third trimester double chins.

...Not only that, but she has this ability to immediately put you at ease. This is why I have used her for maternity, newborn, mom & me, and family photos. I won’t go anywhere else.

The photos and moments Alyssum captures are SO incredibly beautiful! I always feel like it's such chaos during the photos as we have two toddlers but Alyssum always manages to capture so many incredible shots that are truly reflective of this season of our lives. Which is exactly the reason we choose Alyssum as our family photographer -- to capture these exact moments!! As we just finished our second family milestone session, two years in a row, we will absolutely return for future years. Alyssum, you do such an amazing job -- thank you!!!

Our sessions with Alyssum are very relaxed, fuss-free and joyful while doing something that could be so much more stressful for mom and dad. In all honesty I dread family photos, but they were a breeze with Alyssum. We have one child diagnosed with autism and she did great at getting those rare shots of eye contact. I was also impressed with her ability to hold her camera and catch our son who jumped right in the water. She is extremely patient and I appreciate her willingness to get on our children’s level.

Alyssum truly has a gift a capturing moments on camera. I'm in aww of her ability to capture our family so well. Her photos paint a picture of who we are in the moment and they feel so natural. Forever grateful that we will be able to relive these moments in time when we look at the photos for years to come. The photos are not only beautiful, but she makes the entire process so easy and fun. I don't know how she does it, but we are grateful we found her. Thank you!

We have used Alyssum twice now for photos and she does such an amazing job!!! Her work is absolute perfection. She is also very easy going and fun to work with. Our son isn't a fan of strangers or being put in the spotlight and she really was so good and gentle with knowing how to engage him in photos.
...She is the definition of you get what you pay for, actually her services are worth even more in my opinion. I would 100% recommend her to anyone.

Alyssum is an AMAZING photographer. I just moved to the area a couple years ago and we had been flying back to California to have our photos taken with our long time photographer. I’m very picky and finding a good one is hard!! A few of our neighbors had used her and I LOVED her work. She is so talented and captures families so well. So glad we used her and will continue to do so. Already can’t wait for our next session. BUT, when you see her sessions come available you must book ASAP cuz she’ll sell out like that day! If we could give her 10 stars we would. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
