The motherhood Experience

celebrating moms and their unconditional love.

As a mom, your phone is probably bursting with every precious moment your child has gone through since the day they were born. But how many of those photos include you in them? How often do you get to be a part of these special memories too, not just the one behind the camera capturing them?

What you do for your child every day is special, sacred, and so, so important. Your child will never know anyone else who loves them just like you do. You deserve to step out in front of the camera too, and share in these moments with your little one. Someday, you can both look back and remember the smiles, laughs, kisses, and cuddles that show how much you love each other. We love offering motherhood sessions at our Milwaukee studio exactly for this reason!

Whether you're an expectant mama, raising a teen, or anything in between, it's never too soon or too late to create beautiful and timeless art celebrating the unconditional love you have for your child. Book a motherhood session today with our Milwaukee photography studio!

Hey there, I'm Jess!

Welcome to Elevado Photography, my Milwaukee-based studio where I specialize in boudoir and portrait photography. I'm so excited to have you here!

As a female photographer and a mom of three, I understand the importance of creating a fun, comfortable, and supportive environment for my clients and their children. My team and I love working to help you and your child to have fun and feel at ease, allowing authenticity and true joy to shine through in every image.

Feeling a little self conscious about being in front of a camera? I totally understand! Here's what I have to say about that: I believe that every person has a unique beauty and a story worth telling, and you don't need to change anything about yourself first to be worthy of that!

Through my posing and styling expertise, doubled up with professional hair and makeup services for your big day, I strive to capture those beautiful, timeless moments between you and your child that also make you feel empowered, confident, and gorgeously you.

I would be honored to be a part of your motherhood journey, helping you not only celebrate the love you share with your precious child, but also helping you find new reasons to feel confident, beautiful, and strong just as you are through motherhood photography. Let's create something extraordinary together!

what goes into a session?

With any motherhood session, rest assured you will be fully prepped by me and my team before and during your session. You can expect:

  • a pre-session consultation, so we can nail your vision for your dream session!
  • wardrobe & styling guidance
  • access to an inclusively-sized client wardrobe (XS through 5X)
  • complimentary hair and makeup, done in-studio
  • 60-90 minutes of photoshoot time
  • expert guidance on posing and facial expression
  • a post-session viewing appointment, where we view your final images and design your gorgeous printed products together!

What about printed products?

Printed products are available in several of the collections I offer. Luxurious, high quality albums, folio boxes (keepsake boxes with individual photographic prints), wall art, and other products are available in addition to digital images, and are customizable based on your needs.

Are digital images included in the session fee?

A.Digital images and printed products are sold separately. I offer several different collections (bundles) of printed products like albums, folio boxes, wall art, etc, as well as digital image files! It's important that the artwork you've invested in is celebrated through mediums you can physically grab and see, rather than just collecting dust on a flash drive.

How much is a collection?

A.Collections are highly customizable and designed to be flexible with your product needs and budget. Therefore, a consultation call is important in assessing your needs and giving you a customized quote based on them! Investment in a collection typically begins at $550, and clients invest an average of $1550 per session.

Do you offer payment plans?

A.Absolutely! Every mom out there deserves to experience a motherhood session with a professional photographer at least once in their lives, and I offer flexible, 0% APR biweekly or monthly payment plans to make sessions more accessible to different budget ranges.

Will my images be public?

A.Only if you want them to be! Protecting you and your family's privacy is THE most important thing to me. By default, all images taken during your session are strictly, 100% private, unless you provide written consent for your images to be shared on social media, my website, or the private VIP Facebook group.

I struggle with embracing my body image. Is a motherhood session still right for me?

A.A professional photography session is right for everyone! We all have insecurities about our bodies, no matter where we're at in our body acceptance journey. That's okay and completely normal! Leading up to your session, we'll discuss the areas of your body where you feel most insecure, and make sure to pose you in ways that flatter what you ARE happy with.

Should I lose weight before a session?

A.Nope! Our studio's philosophy is that being deserving of a session isn't about changing yourself or your body in order to become "more beautiful". A motherhood session is about embracing the body you've been blessed with, just as it is. It's about celebrating your inner beauty as much as what's on the outside too! Overall, our sessions are designed to help you see the strength and beauty in who you are right now, and helps you feel more confident that you DON'T need to change for anyone or anything.
