Hi, there! I’m Karen - a boutique family photographer with a special love for babies! 

About Karen

Many women, especially during their first pregnancy, are eager to have some photographs to capture some of the moments. Sure, the early months of pregnancy can be stressful and uncomfortable, but in the later months, when that glow settles in, it is a must to snap a few pics for the family photo album. So what does it take to perfect a pregnancy photo shoot? In this article, we will explain the tips and tricks for a perfect maternity photo shoot.


We’ve done several maternity photography sessions here, and they are among our favorites. To start, you have to ensure the timing is right for maternity photography. Around the 28-32nd week of pregnancy is ideal because that’s when that bump is showing and that skin is glowing.

Location and Comfort

Next, it is vital to find a location that the mom-to-be is comfortable with. Whether that’s the studio or a favorite outdoor location, we go for warm, cozy, well-lit spots that will showcase the unique beauty of pregnancy. For indoor sessions, we use both natural light and professional studio lighting. With outdoor photoshoots, the ideal time of day for photography is near sunset and sunrise, when everything is bathed in a golden hue.However we can work under any lighting conditions.

When the location is selected, it is an absolute must to make sure that the client is feeling confident. To counter this, we encourage soon-to-be moms to select a favorite outfit in a color they adore.We have a collection of maternity dresses that clients can choose from.

The Family

Though the mama is, of course, the focus of maternity photography, we always include the partner and the other children, if any, in some photographs. That’s because the family interactions during the family photoshoot provide an opportunity to get the most natural and candid pictures.

It is always a good idea to take a few romantic pics of the couple together. We know that a few well-timed photographs are a great way to showcase the subtleties of the relationship and will provide a memento that the couple will return to for years to come.

Enjoy the Moment!

Finally, the most important thing to do to get the most out of a maternity photo shoot is to have a good time. So relax, smile, and enjoy this incredible moment. I’ve always found that the most beautiful photographs happen when all involved have forgotten the cameras and are simply being themselves.

I had an extremely anxious pregnancy after my miscarriage, which is why I didn't reach out to you until so late, but you really went out of your way to accommodate and make it happen for me and my family. I'm so glad that I have all these photos of this special time in our lives and the captures of (our) brand new baby. I'll be forever grateful for the perfect moments you captured. Thank you again, so much."

"Hi Karen. Just wanted to really say thank you again for everything with our sessions. I could not be happier with how they both turned out."

We have gotten many compliments from visiting guests. The photos you took are candid and captured true moments of joy. The product has amazing quality and yet very easy to install. I can’t wait to get another great collage for the upcoming family shoots. Thank you Karen.

She listened to what type of photos we were looking to achieve and offered suggestions since she is in fact the professional! Karen was always very responsive if I had any questions leading up to the actual photo shoot and was an absolute pleasure to work with the day of our session. Everything went very smooth, and our proofs were delivered very quickly. After the selection process, our final images were delivered also very quickly and looked so amazing. We have received so many compliments and will be using Karen again in the future. I highly recommend MuSen Photography to anyone looking for quality professional photography!

I hired her to do my daughters first birthday party photos and she captured the moment perfectly. I was so pleased with her work I hired her again to do a mother and daughters photo shoot for Mother’s Day. She NAILED IT one of the most beautiful photo shoots I have ever seen. Karen picked the location, lighting, told us how to pose her eye for perfection is beyond words she saw my vision and made it come true. She also was very easy to contact and communicate with. The turn over time to receive the photos was fast and easy. Karen is also very sweet it was truly a pleasure working with her.  I highly recommend her and if perfection is what you seek Karen is definitely the one.  I look forward to working with her again. Thank you so much Karen you rock .
