I promise to poetically document this precious time in your life.

from bump to baby

this is your legacy.








I'll send over a virtual proposal where you can check my availability, schedule your session date + time, and make it official by submitting a contract & deposit.


I'll act as a trusted resource and support in the weeks and months leading up to your session, answering questions and providing guidance on things like outfits, locations, + more.


Your session is here! Take a deep breath and get ready to have some fun (no really, it'll be a blast). I'll help you feel comfortable and at ease in front of my camera, so your photos reflect your true personalities.

gallery delivered

I'll send sneak peeks in 48 hours, & your full gallery of images will be delivered 2 weeks later. Print them out, put them on the fridge, or make a photo book to adorn your coffee table! 

I'd love to learn more about your family & the season of life you're in - complete the quick form on my contact page & let's get to know each other! You'll hear from me within 24 hours.



I know how much you want to hold on to every second. You wish you could freeze time, so you can enjoy this season for just a bit longer. But time doesn’t stop, and all you can do is save each memory through a photo, and revisit it weeks, months and years from now. Allow me to be on the other side capturing you + your loved ones, while you're free to live in the present and soak in every joyful moment.

Ilderina was such a joy to work with. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture our pregnancy announcement. She came prepared, was professional, and better yet, very personable and genuine. She made us feel so comfortable through it all. I love her work!

A joy to work with

- Elma

This was by far my favorite photoshoot I have ever done. Ilderina made it so seamless and comfortable for my entire family which can be difficult with a 15 month old. But she managed to capture the most beautiful moments of my family and I. We are truly blessed to have had such a wonderful experience with her and look forward to doing future shoots with her! HIGHLY recommend her for any family photos and pregnancy reveals!

So seamless

- Sara

I had such a great time with Ilderina during photo session!! She is such a humble, wonderful person!! Made me feel comfortable during the whole session, was very professional and extremely fast delivering pictures!! Everything ran so smoothly with Ilderina!! My maternity pictures could not turn any better and so grateful that she has captured such a special moment for me and my family. Would recommend her to anyone!!

Very Professional

- Fatima

Ilderina is the sweetest! And she did a wonderful job for our annual family photos! She is great with kids-even the sassiest 3 year olds! Looking forward to the next time (hopefully by the end of the year)!

Great with kids


what happens if we have to cancel or reschedule?

If you need to reschedule due to inclement weather or an emergency, your deposit will go towards a new date. Up to 2 reschedules are allowed. There is no additional fee for cancellations, however, the deposit is non-refundable.

The "starting at" price is the typical investment, but you may choose to add on a second location or outfit, extended family members, or services like a studio rental or travel fees. Travel within 60 miles round trip of Urbandale, Iowa is included.

What are "Starting at" prices?

do you provide unedited images?

All your images are professionally hand-edited by me! I've developed a signature style & will only deliver finished photos, so make sure my style fits what you're looking for before you book!

Reach out as soon as possible if you have a deadline (for example - yearbook photos, maternity, or holiday cards). I typically book portrait sessions 4-6 weeks out, but the more time you allow for planning the location & outfits, the better!
