We believe that the memories you are investing in should be seen and enjoyed every single day!
Most of our clients choose one of our collection packages with the choice of displaying your favorites in an Heirloom Album or as matted portraits in a 11×14 Reveal Box.
In addition to our collections we offer custom wall galleries designed specifically for your home
using our unique software to show you choices to scale on your very own walls.
You only purchase what you LOVE and every image purchased, no matter the format, arrives with it’s matching digital file to share with family and friends
The design & ordering appointment is hands down our favorite part of the entire process. This is where we show you your images for the first time and help guide you in choosing the very best keepsake products for your home and family.
We believe this is the part that absolutely shouldn't be skipped and sets our services apart from other photographers! We begin with a small slideshow with ideas for wall galleries, albums and newborn announcements and then go through each image one by one choosing the very best of the best.

We recommend maternity photos take place somewhere between 30-36 weeks gestation. That being said we can take maternity photos earlier in the process if you'd like to create a pregnancy announcement, or later in the process if you'd like to document your belly as big as possible!
When should I schedule my maternity photos?
What happens if my baby is born before my photoshoot?
Yes! If you would like to bundle a maternity session with our Luxury Newborn Experience session you'll save $200 off your maternity base package! You can book them together here.
Do you have a belly to baby bundle?
We are happy to do a shorter session for you! Our base package includes up to 2 hours of shooting time but if you're looking for something simple we can absolutely do this in a compact time frame. We find that our base package with 5 images included is perfect for clients who want more of a mini session type approach.
Yes! We encourage older siblings, mom & dad and even grandparents to take part in our sessions and do not charge extra for additional people. Please just let us know in advance who to expect so we can plan accordingly.
Do you offer mini maternity sessions?
Can the whole family be included?
We of course want to avoid this if possible but sometimes it does happen. We are happy to apply your deposit toward a newborn or family session anytime within that first year.
How long does the session last?
Our maternity session typically lasts about an hour but may be closer to 2 if you choose a specialty setup like a milk bath or outfit changes.
Our studio maternity sessions now include a same day viewing session! For our outdoor sessions we will schedule a time to view your images within 1-2 weeks of your session.
How long does it take to see my images?
Wait, Viewing Session? What’s that?
Your images are finalized 7-10 days after your ordering appointment and sent via web gallery for your approval. Once product orders have been placed, we generally have albums and collection boxes ready for you in about 3-4 weeks. Please allow 8-10 weeks for custom framing and wall art. Once everything arrives we will let you know that it is ready for pickup at the Glean Studio.
Once my order is placed how long does it take to arrive?
All images that you purchase get basic color correction and cleanup for stray hairs, acne, etc. If you would like us to do anything else, say the word! Extensive retouching is available for an additional fee.
Yes, all of our collections are available with or without the physical products. While we highly encourage creating a keepsake art piece for your child, it is ultimately your decision.
Our base maternity session includes 5 digital images + matching 5x7 prints. If that's all you want and need, that's ok by us! We want you to walk away with only the artwork you absolutely love and cherish.
How much editing do you do to the images?
Is there a minimum purchase required?
Can I just buy digital files?
A viewing session or reveal session is when we meet with you and any other household decision makers to look at your images together for the first time and place your artwork order. It takes place at the Glean studio or at your own home by special request. At this session you’ll see the products we offer, choose your favorite images, request any changes you might have and we’ll place the order the very same day with cash, check or card.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We are happy to work with your budget and create a payment plan that works for your family. All physical products are delivered after the payment plan is complete. Our online booking system utilizes ShopPay to break your total into 4 equal interest free payments.
Thank you so much for your message! We look forward to responding within 48 business hours!
