You have anticipated this moment since before you can remember, can you believe that you are actually living it now? As you anticipate the arrival of your little one I can't wait to honor the inherent beauty of motherhood that you embody in these fleeting days. You are more beautiful than you know, Mama. It is my honor to capture that beauty. Every step of the way, I strive to bring that out in you. Taking advantage of my client wardrobe, hair & makeup, etc. it won't be hard!

From our first conversation and getting to know your Motherhood journey, to planning your Bay Area maternity portrait session to include pampering from my trusted hair & makeup artist, your choice of gowns my curated maternity closet, to a session where you feel luminous and walk away confident in your own beauty - I am here for you every step of the way. That is the "Laurel Smith Photography Maternity Experience".

"Laurel is SO talented and the best to work with. She knows how to find the best angles and gives you great guidance. 

She's also so great with every member of the family, bringing out our best qualities.

She's patient and has a wonderful eye for what she does. Can't wait to use her in the future!"

"Best photographer in the area. Her work is pristine and on a whole other level. 

Her photos are true pieces of priceless art.

She captures the love of family in a beautiful and intimate way. She will also make you and your family look like the photos you would see off of Pinterest (or those perfect photos all the influencers are posting). We were so impressed."

"We had a fabulous experience with Laurel in studio. My two year old was having a really hard day. Laurel was so gentle with her, and came up with great ideas to get some quality images despite the pout face. I was completely blown away when I received the images!! 

She captures light in such a beautiful way, I could not have been happier.

I'm so in love with my baby announcement pictures, THANK YOU, Laurel!!"
