Unique, Beautiful, Maternity Photography
Welcome Expectant Mothers and Fathers
We are your baby and maternity specialists!
This is a wonderful time for you and we know you want to celebrate it. We would love to create a beautiful portrait of you that shows you how really beautiful you are. Many women who visit our studio and see the canvas portraits we have on display state they wish they would of had us create some for them. They can never go back in time to have them created. We don't want that to happen to you.
Being late into my pregnancy, I was a little shy and self-conscious about my body. Yet Gene and Tracy, at Montana Photographic Arts immediately alleviated those fears with their warm and professional attitude. I really enjoyed our session and look forward to returning with my newborn."

We know some women are sensitive about their bodies during this time so we are very careful about photographing them in a flattering pose that accentuates what they like about their bodies and also hides what they don't. Also the lighting is critical to capturing that beautiful glow.
**See info our contemporary beauty portrait session ...we can include your maternity session with hair and makeup so you look ravishing.
Before we photograph you we sit down and find out exactly what you want. We will create an image that's uniquely yours.
We can take your portraits in our fully equipped studio or outside at any location you choose
We have many beautiful locations around our area to take your portraits.
There are fields of wildflowers, waterfalls, ponds, barns, old buildings, and so much more. Whether you've seen some of our fine art nude figures and are interested in a nude maternity portrait or would rather have a partially or fully clothed portrait we can do whatever you are comfortable with.
If you'd like us to photograph you with your partner, children or pets we are more than happy to do that also.
The best time for most women to be photographed is when they are 7-8 months along. That way your belly should be big and round but you can still get around comfortably (relatively speaking of course). Also, we don't want to wait too long in case your baby decides to arrive early. This will also give you time to view the images we created of you in our studio and place your order before your bundle of joy arrives.
Of course you can't always plan when you'll be 7-8 months along so we always have the option to photograph you in our studio in case of bad weather. Also think about having them taken in your home. You will feel more comfortable and have access to your clothes and accessories. If you're not sure your home will work just ask and we can let you know.
Feel free to visit our studio to see some examples of books and other products including custom created invitations and announcements we've created for other expectant moms.
If you're interested in our pricing we charge for your portrait session and your print order separately. Your investment for the portrait session will be $125 per hour. 1-2 hours is usually the amount of time we need to get some really great images with several backgrounds and changes of clothes. For the print products our 8 x 10 prints are $125 each and our books start at $150. Books, Albums, Folios, Slideshows and Wall portraits are perfect products for your maternity session. If our pricing fits within your budget and you'd like more information on our package pricing where you can save lots of money plus get free books then contact us and request a Maternity Collections Pricing Brochure and we will be happy to mail one out to you right away.
I do love my maternity pictures and will treasure not only the album.. but the session as well."
