Remember The Miracle

Every time you look at your maternity pictures, you'll get to focus on how miraculous your pregnancy was.

On how connected you were as a couple.

On how excited you were to start a family.

You'll never focus on how tired you look, or on blemishes or marks from your pregnancy.

When you come to Focus Photography, we'll make sure you look fabulous in your maternity pictures, so you'll be able to remember the miracle of motherhood, and not its inconveniences.

Will grew up with a darkroom in his basement, and his first love was B&W.

Our fine-art maternity images have all of the grain and warmth of film prints.

Clothing

You won’t need a whole wardrobe of maternity clothing you may never wear again.  

We have fabrics and dresses, and with a few basics from your closet, you’ll be camera ready.

Easy Directions

“My photoshoot was so easy.  Will told me exactly where to stand, sit, what to do with my hands, etc.  He even made my husband comfortable.”

Couple's Portraits

If you can get baby’s father to the studio, we can get him in your portraits.

We show dads as strong and supportive, and they’ll be proud for baby to see them.
