Maternity & Motherhood

A Maternity Session with Emerald Photography is a time to pause and celebrate the magic your body is creating.  I strive to make every woman that walks in my studio feel comfortable, safe and treated like a celebrity. Book your session now and enjoy your magazine worthy images for a lifetime!

Motherhood Sessions are a time that you step our from behind the camera and connect with your little ones.  One of the things that we truly lack as mothers are pictures of ourselves to preserve the moment we are living in.  

Emerald Photography is located in downtown Jacksonville, Florida.  Emerald 's studio is a private space filled with eclectic walls and glamorous furniture and setups. I invite you to join me for a photoshoot.  I look forward to hosting every single one of my clients visiting my studio so that I can show them the magic of the building and tell the stories of the greats that once graced the areas where they will be photographed.

A quick phone call to help me understand how you want to be photographed. It's also a great time for you to ask questions.

Once your Photoshoot date is booked we will start planning out all the details of your session from what to wear, to hair and makeup inspiration, as well as posing, lighting and themes.

You will arrive at the studio and be greeted by me with your hair and makeup team ready to pamper you. You will spend the day with me coaching you through posing and how to look great in your photos.

I invite you back to view your professionally retouched images that will definitely put a smile on your face! Take home only what you love! My job is to make you love them all!

How it Works

A photoshoot experience with Emerald Photography is easy.  Never had professional photos taken, that's ok! I will walk you through everything.  Every shoot is tailored to each client.  It's time to push aside false beliefs about beauty standards and body images and SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION with Stacey!

The best time to photograph your Maternity Session is between 27-33 weeks.  

Questions

Sessions take place in my studio located in downtown, Jacksonville, Florida. I'm always happy to discuss other options like outdoor spots around Jacksonville, boutique hotels, in-home sessions or B&B's that may offer a certain style to best suit your vision. 

I offer an extensive wardrobe with beautiful silks, skirts and wraps, along with some original creations and designer gowns. I am happy to consult and guide you to what will be best for your session. Once your photoshoot is confirmed, I will send a wardrobe guide with helpful links and we can discuss what's in the studio closet.

Yes, I take privately very seriously. After your session, I upload photos to my editing programs and then delete images from my SD card. I do all my editing in a private location, on my personal computer that is password protected. After your Image Reveal & Ordering session, I move all photographs to a secure external hard drive where they will stay, archived. I keep them archived in the event there is ever a time that your gallery should need to be resurrected. 

No, I will not share anything unless it is approved by you.  After your Image Reveal & Ordering Session, I will send you an approval sheet of images you may wish to share and a contract.  You can decide to share them all, some or none.  I will honor whatever your decision may be.

I would love to be able to offer my products at a cheaper rate because I believe EVERYONE should have beautifully printed photographs in their home, but that just isn’t a sustainable model for my business. I have very carefully sourced my products from all over the world and I stand behind their quality. I value the time and education I have put behind my passion and that holds true value to my brand and myself as an artist.

It will only be you and me, and possible an assistant, depending on the images we discuss at your consultation. After hair and makeup, those wonderful artists will leave and we will begin our shoot.  

For maternity sessions, I am open to including your significant other in the session. This is something I am happy to discuss with you further if you are interested.

YAY!! This will be such an amazing thing that you do to reflect back on this time! Contact me about what dates and times will work for you. I will send you a contract and then we will move forward discussing wardrobes, tips, pricing and all the little details that will make your session the best decision you make.

Emerald Studio

JUST A LITTLE ABOUT THE STUDIO

Emerald Studio is located on Broad Street in the old Richmond Hotel. Historic buildings are in my blood so when I stumbled upon this space- I knew it was a good fit. The universe knows me and basically put this old gem in my lap. I am lucky to share my space with fellow photographer who shares my passion.

Emerald's studio is a private space filled with eclectic walls and glamorous furniture and setups. It is right next to the new courthouse in downtown Jacksonville. I look forward to hosting every single one of my clients visiting my studio so that I can show them the magic of the building and tell the stories of the greats that once graced the areas where they will be photographed.
