How far in advance should we book our session?
At Asheville Portrait Company, we value family & try really hard to prioritize having a Healthy Work / Life Balance. We believe that it directly affects our attitude, energy, creativity and ultimately our success.
As such, we can only take on 5 Expectant Mamas for Maternity Portrait Sessions each month. We encourage you to book you session as far in advance as possible to ensure availability for your session!
Where do we shoot?
That depends on your preference for outdoor or studio Maternity Portraits!
We can either shoot in our Biltmore Village Studio OR we can shoot outdoors. in and around Asheville. along the Blue Ridge Parkway, at Biltmore Estate, the NC Arboretum or UNCA Botanical Gardens & Observatory or we can find another magical little spot to make your maternity dreams come true!
What do I wear?
That also depends on your preferences for this session!
I've had couples who want a more casual, lifestyle or boho vibe.
I've also had couples who want to dress in black tie for a couture studio session!
The Creative Fee covers a Maternity Gown Rental for you and we have a Client Closet at the studio that you could pick something from as well!
What about hair & makeup?
We schedule trusted artists for in house hair & makeup service at the studio to glam you up before your portrait session!
This typically takes about an hour and a half.
What should my partner wear?
Mama! You're the star of this show! Your partner will be in a supporting role & will want to dress in a way that is complimentary to the theme, wardrobe and/or gown you've chosen for the session! They'll want to dress in a way that feels authentic, in a way that makes them feel comfortable and confident — like the very best version of themselves! I am happy to help you to put together your wardrobe for the session!
What do we need to bring?
But, I do love it when expectant parents bring Sonograms. IVF needle collections, or other sentimental things from their pregnancy journey!
Where is the studio located?
In Biltmore Village, along the river!
76 Glendale Ave.
Asheville, NC 28803
What is your cancellation policy?
Due to high demand and limited availability, Creative Fees are non-refundable for any reason.
In the event of illness, inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, we will simply re-schedule for the very next available date / time that works for both of us!
If possible, we will shoot before or after any inclement weather.
Our experience for our maternity shoot was wonderful. Brittany was easy to communicate with & very responsive. She was flexible when our date needed to change due to pregnancy brain & weather. She is incredibly personable and definitely put as at ease as a couple that does not do professional modeling often. Our photos are gorgeous and something we will cherish forever.
Brittany was a dream to work with! She was very responsive and easy to communicate with. I had a vision for what I wanted in my maternity photos and she executed perfectly. She created the most beautiful boho bedroom in her studio and it was exactly how I pictured it to be. She’s extremely creative and makes it fun! She made us feel so comfortable and I’m normally the most awkward person in front of a camera. But with Brittany, it felt natural. I am in love with the photos! 😍

We had our maternity photo shoot with Brittany and our jaws hit the floor! The quality and color was exactly what we wanted! The location was absolutely perfect, our little toddler was in a great mood (Brittany knows how to get the kiddos to smile!) and I’m BEYOND happy with the results. We will cherish these photos forever and will be having Brittany take our special occasion photos for years to come. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
