Petite Pregnancy Announcement in Downtown Charleston

This was the sweetest pregnancy announcement in downtown Charleston! These two booked a petite pregnancy announcement session, and spending the afternoon with them was so much fun.

Pregnancy Announcement in Downtown Charleston

This was a winter session, but the weather was so close to perfect. Looking back at these images, it’s hard to tell it wasn’t Spring.

Mom and Dad were the CUTEST couple! They were so joyful throughout the entire session and had the most precious connection to witness from behind my lens. You could feel just how excited they were about their new little one on the way. They found me through a mutual friend whom I had also photographed for a pregnancy announcement– definitely such a fun way to meet new clients! 

What Makes Petite Sessions Different?

Petite pregnancy announcement sessions are a bit different than my full maternity sessions. They’re simple and sweet and perfect for couples who want a way to share their news with their loved ones in a creative way. They’re also a beautiful keepsake to remember this new journey. 

These petite sessions are twenty-five minutes, the perfect amount of time to document a handful of beautiful portraits for you and your partner. They are offered in downtown Charleston locations as well as Hampton Park and are subject to availability. 

After our session, you’ll receive a gallery of twenty-five images to enjoy for years to come. Be sure to ask about prints and albums for a special way to preserve these memories, too! 

Petite pregnancy announcement sessions can also be the perfect add-on for newborn clients OR couples visiting Charleston from out of town. Mama must be less than twenty weeks along in their pregnancy for this particular option, or you’re more than welcome to reach out about a full maternity session so you can utilize the client wardrobe, too!
