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.
For 20 years, Focus Photography has been creating artistic, relationship-focused images of expecting mothers and their partners and families.
We have a private and serene photography studio overlooking the Saccarappa Falls on the Presumscott River in Westbrook.
We have 2000 square feet of shooting space so you won’t have to bare your belly outdoors in a busy park.
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.
"I really enjoyed working with you, and would recommend Focus Photography to anyone who wants a comfortable, beautiful and amazing moment captured forever!!"
"You created all the pictures I had in mind and incorporated the sentimental things that meant a lot to me into the pictures and I really loved that!"
"I love my Love Notes book, and I could not be happier with my pregnancy images"!
"I've been photographed before, at my wedding, for engagement pictures, and when I was a high school senior. Not once in all those times did I feel as confident and feminine as I felt during my maternity session."
"I felt awkward those other times because I didn't know what to do (and got no help from the photographers), but Will told me exactly what I needed to do - I wish I'd found Focus Photography earlier."
" Before I came to Focus, people like my mother kept asking why I'd ever want to do it - now they all tell me how lucky I am to have these images. God gave me this little boy, and I loved being pregnant with him. "
"But every image from our photoshoot at Focus Photography shows how excited we were for her, how much we loved her, and how grateful we are for this miracle. That's what we want Emily to know, and when she's old enough to read the Love-Notes book Focus made us, I think she'll treasure those feelings and images too."
"Our maternity session with you was just what we were looking for. Melanie was nervous about her weight, and Will helped her confident. I was feeling out of place, and you made me right at home, and an important part (I think) of the shoot. And Melanie is so happy with the portraits in Cole's room, that if we don't have another child, we can remember this time beautifully. "
"But when I came in, that all faded away. Will has a tremendous amount of empathy, and he talked to me about what I wanted, what I secretly hoped we could do (God bless digital art!), and what I would and wouldn't be comfortable with."
"All I can say is WOW. I enjoyed being photographed, and I love the album Lucia put together for me. I may not show everyone the story of my pregnancy, but I'm thrilled to be able to relive my story with my daughter Alyssa."
"I love these pictures, and Focus Photography did a great job making me comfortable during the session, helped me choose images during the ordering appointment, and the finished prints are a much better quality than I've seen before."
"After she was born, I did the first year plan, and now every year I bring her in for her birthday portrait."
"Will and Lucia are wonderful people who have perfectly captured my relationship with my daughter, starting before she was born. Thank you both."
Our maternity images feature strong directional lighting to flatter your shape, and shading to add contour. It’s a dramatic style made popular by Hollywood in the 1940s, but the difficulty of the technique and the equipment requirements leave very few photographers able to recreate it.
