Claire | Lake Pleasant Maternity Session

Claire and her family helped me check off a bucket list photoshoot this summer by letting me photograph them by (and in) the lake. And I am OBSESSED with how their gallery turned out.

Claire is my good friend and a fellow baby photographer. She has been photographing births for ten years! And she beautifully captures all of the details in motherhood. Claire’s client experience is #goals because she totally eliminates the a-stranger-is-photographing-me-giving-birth fear and makes you feel comfortable having her in the delivery room. You can see all of her work at

This is Claire and Scott’s fifth baby, but it’s their first time documenting it with a maternity session! So of course I was so honored to be the photographer capturing this time in their lives.

I was a bit nervous honestly, because I’ve never photographed a family this big. But it’s very obvious that these kids are used to being photographed because they knew just where to stand and how to pose. They made my job EASY.

Can’t wait to meet baby Waite #5!!!
