Beach Maternity Photography Session | Tybee Island, Georgia

I love Fall maternity photography portrait sessions on Tybee Island Beach. It is a little colder, but my pregnant customers are always super warm anyways due to their hormone levels. I don’t mind the colder temperatures either, because these beach sessions are a serious workout for me anyways. These sessions last about an hour (the sun goes down quicker at the beach) and I have two Tybee Beach locations to choose from. Whether you are local or booking me for a baby moon session you are always welcome to choose a dress from my client closet.


This sweet couple did so well during this beautiful beach session. We did a lot of laughing, as you can tell in these images.

Pretty Maternity Photography Richmond Hill Georgia

This pretty momma came back all the way from Alabama to take her maternity images with me. She told me, that she had never taken any maternity photos, but knew, that this was her last chance to take them, being pregnant with her third child.

We planned this session over the phone and it came out so perfectly. We started with studio portraits and finished up in the bath tub full of flowers and a milk bath.

I turn on a candle warmer during the milk bath part and many customers told me, that they feel like they’re in a spa. I want this experience to be as special as possible for my customers to remember this time for a lifetime.

How to prepare for your maternity session | Richmond Hill, GA

If you are pregnant and want to take maternity photos, this post is for you! Maternity Photography sessions in Savannah and surrounding areas are one of my favorite photography sessions to create in our Richmond Hill photography studio or surrounding areas.

I remember finding out I was pregnant. I took three pregnancy test with each child because I just couldn't believe the miracle. From the moment that little extra line appears on the test, your life begins to present it’s fair share of little surprises, right? 

Morning sickness or for some even 24-7 sickness in the first couple of weeks\ months, then come tiny flutters that make you forget all about the not-so-good mornings. Do you remember your first ultrasound appointment? The first time you heard that little heartbeat? It just keeps getting better. Your favorite jeans don't fit anymore. You run to the bathroom every other hour. In fact, you’d sleep if you didn’t have to take several trips to the potty every night. Your baby bounces around in your belly, and your dreams of holding your little bundle of joy become so vivid.

I can tell you that pregnancy was one of the most magical times of my life! You may not always feel beautiful, but you are!

I did not have maternity pictures taken because maternity photography was not a thing at the time (I am from Germany) I was pregnant with my children. Let’s make sure you remember this amazing time; your children will thank you for it!

Here are some tips on how to prepare for your maternity session:

1. If you decide to wear your own outfit, instead of using the gowns from my studio wardrobe, make sure to know that tight pants and socks, leave dents on the skin. Stay form-fitting but comfy for your shoot.

2. Keep your nails natural. Nail-design changes just like clothing styles do.

3. Consider booking a hair & make-up artist for your session, even if you’re a super-natural style Mama. Treat yourself; you deserve it! Let a make-up artist bring out all of your natural beauty with photo-ready makeup and a perfect hairstyle for your shoot! Most of my customers go on a fancy lunch\dinner date with their husband after their session. Not only do they feel super pretty because of their hair and make-up but I make them feel like a supermodel as well :).

4. Tell me what you’re comfortable with. If you’re belly shy…say so! We have ways of making sure your belly looks stunning without showing any skin. If you don’t like your stretch marks, c-section scar, linea nigra (you know the dark line along the navel line?), or anything else, there are ways to remove them. They should not be the reason not to have fantastic belly pictures!

5. Do your research. PINTEREST is my best friend! Also look up my Instagram and point me in the right direction. Don’t be afraid to make suggestions. I am open to ideas; I like to get inspired, and I love to grow!

I could go on and on. I loved having all of these sweet babies this year and hope for many more next year. Thank you so much fro trusting me to handle and photograph your newborn baby in Richmond Hill, GA. Newborn sessions are very limited due to the fact that they are very time consuming.

Beautiful Milk Bath Maternity Photography | Savannah GA

Are you ready for some gorgeousness? This session took place at my sweet newborn photography studio in Richmond Hill, GA. The bathtub in these images is my very own. I should use it a lot more often myself, it is lovely. Please read yourself what beautiful Antoinette has to say about the photography experience with me.

How has your experience been with Andrea Krey Photography?

I've had a fantastic experience with my maternity session and newborn session. Both days were not just days I was going to have my picture taken or my family was just going to have their picture taken. It was a special experience for all of us and created some fun and beautiful memories that Andrea was able to capture. I felt like a million bucks during my maternity session and walked away with beautiful portraits.

Why would you recommend Andrea Krey Photography to your friends?

I would recommend Andrea Krey Photography to my friends for so many reasons. My favorite things about her business that I like to tell them about is how professional she is. She really takes the time to make sure her clients are taken care of and is very genuine. She works with you to bring what you had in your head as ideas to life for the day of the session. If you are unsure about something she will give you her professional guidance which leads to beautiful images. I fully trust her because of how beautiful her work is. I also like to point out to my friends that her products for beautiful images she captures from the sessions really bring more beauty into them. She mentioned to me that I really needed to see them in person and she is right. The textures and quality of her products is unlike anything I've ever seen offered by other photographers. Her studio is gorgeous and dreamy and she offers so many things for her clients. I didn't have to bring anything for my maternity shoot as she has so many beautiful options in her studio to try on beforehand. It takes the stress away from having to go find something while pregnant to wear which we all know can be difficult and frustrating. I wanted a milk bath session and was prepared to buy flowers for it. After speaking to Andrea to plan the session she mentioned she provided the flowers and just asked what colors I wanted and guided me on what I had in mind. That took the stress out of trying to find a place to order from. She literally has everything you need. My main recommendation about Andrea Krey Photography is that she makes you feel confident and beautiful and that really flows over into the images she captures. I think it's so important when looking for a photographer to be able to connect with them and have complete trust in their guidance and knowledge of what they are doing because when you do it makes for a beautiful and memorable session and just adds to your photos.

Is there a story surrounding your pregnancy? Was it a breeze or has your little one made you work for it?

This pregnancy was my third and last. A year ago I sustained a concussion and found out I had a congenital brain malformation called Chiari 1 Malformation. It's something I was born with and had no idea about until I had a CT scan done from my concussion. I've had lots of symptoms growing up but always was told by doctors it was other less serious things going on so I just accepted that and thought maybe it was normal. After finding out about the Malformation I learned from my neurosurgeon that it was probably not safe to have children naturally and a c-section would be the safest way as it would not pull down the herniation any further but pushing would most likely pull it down more. I had two prior c-sections with our other two children. The first was an emergency due to her heart rate dropping dangerously low and almost stopping during milks contractions and the second was a repeat c-section. After finding out about the malformation I felt lucky for having those two c-sections as I could have made my situation worse unknowingly. I knew for sure this was going to be a c-section delivery. After my second pregnancy I developed Pelvic Congestion Syndrome that has become very bothersome. The treatment for it makes it unfavorable to having more children so I was guided by my doctor to decide on when we would be completing our family. When you are hearing that at only 27 years old it can be a little rough.

Have you got everything ready for the big arrival? Are you ready?

I had everything ready but did not feel ready one bit. Having a baby is life changing no matter how many you have. Our kids are pretty spaced out so it felt like we were starting all over again. 

Andrea Krey Photography_maternity-photographer-pooler-hinesville-richmond-hill-ga-savannah5.jpg

Do you have any tips or tricks for others planning a maternity portrait session?

My advice for others planning a maternity portrait session is to find something that is you and fits your personality don't try to do something you are not comfortable with because it looked good on someone else. Make it a stress free day and enjoy the session. I hired a makeup and hair artist to come prior to the session so I wouldn't have to stress about my hair or makeup and it really added to the experience. Pamper yourself and your images will come out even more spectacular.

Sweet newborn baby photography | Richmond Hill, GA

I must admit that little Leo's newborn photography session in my home-based studio in Richmond Hill, GA is one of my favorite sessions. Don't get me wrong, I love all them babies in my studio, but this little peanut was one of the most relaxed and sleepiest babies to date. All the white and natural fibers just suit him so well, don't you agree?

I loved this session so much that I had to print a Luxe Leather Heirloom Album for my sample stock. You can see more here. All the clients are oohing and ahhing over this album. See yourself. It just speaks luxury.
