So much goes into preparing for a new baby to enter you family. Celebrate this special time with something special for the mom-to-be, a maternity session!

At SBS Photography we have an ever growing collection of designer maternity gowns that have been designed specifically for maternity photography. They are made from super comfortable material, and are designed to be one size fits all. They are stretchy and supportive in all of the right places.

I know personally how hard it was to find maternity dresses when I was expecting my daughter, so I made the decision to add these fantastic gowns to my client closet to make these sessions as stress free as possible for my Mom's to be.

I have a long list of new dresses I am adding to my client closet in 2020! The designer I use (the wonderful Chicaboo) has released so many beautiful dresses in the last few months, with even more on the horizon. So I decided to create a special offer for all those wonderful Mom's to be expecting between January and March 2020.

The first mom to book each of the dresses below will receive a discounted maternity session. Sessions will be $100 for a 30 minute session at one of pre-selected locations. You'll get to use the dress that you pick. After your session you'll receive a proofing gallery from which you'll get to select your 10 favorite images for your own private gallery. You'll be able to download these images in high resolution. You'll also get to select one image as an 8x10 print!

I'll update the list as gowns are selected. Remember, it is the first person who books each dress that gets this special deal, so don't delay! Upon booking you'll receive a contract and a session retainer of $25 will be due to hold the date.

I was driving home today and noticed about 10 trees that had started to change color already! That, plus the cooler temps can only mean one thing, Fall is right around the corner! Fall in Connecticut is the perfect backdrops for your family photos. People don't travel to New England every Fall to take in the foliage for nothing, right?

This year we are offering Fall photos at two locations. You will have a 30 minute block for your session (roughly 20-25 minutes will be spent capturing your timeless memories leaving enough time to travel around the park). After your session, you will receive a digital proofing gallery. From there, you will select 10 of your favorite images to create your own digital gallery. These images will be high resolution, and digitally enhanced. You'll be able to download, share and print these photos. You will also pick one image to be printed as your 8"x10" print. The price for these sessions is $99 + tax.

The first location for our session is Southford Falls. Located in Southford, CT (at the Oxford and Southbury town borders). Southford Falls is known for it's vibrant fall colors, it's charming red covered bridge and of course, it's waterfall. There is a 1/4 mile loop around the park. It is an easy walk (a few uphill inclines and rocky paths). Sessions will be held at this location on October 14th, and October 20th.

The second location is Topsmeade State Forest in Litchfield, CT. Besides having a small nature preserve on site, Topsmeade is home to the cutest little cottage with a variety of gardens. Large open fields, rock walls and tree lined paths round out the charm of this location. This park is a very easy walk (some paths are gravel covered but nothing that a stroller couldn't handle). Sessions will be held here on October 27th.

Sessions are filling fast, so don't wait to book your session today!
