Please stay awhile, take a look around my website, view my galleries, read my testimonials to get a better feel for me and what I can offer you. You may want to know more about my business, what packages I offer and how to schedule your session. Let's chat, work together and create some beautiful images that you will forever cherish for years and years to come.
Take a look around!
Step 1 of 5
If you love my work and think I might be the right photographer for you, (yay!) lets chat! We will discuss session availability based on your expected delivery date and your unique needs/requests. I have a beautiful studio in Chalfont, PA and also photograph at many outdoor locations that I have hand picked, for the most beautiful and scenic of backgrounds. Have a vision? I want to hear about it! If you don't, that's fine too, i've got lots of options for you. I'm here for you every step of the way in planning your maternity session!
Step 2 of 5
Hooray, you are ready to book! After we've decided on a date, I will be sending you a photography contract and retainer. Once those are both back to me, the fun part begins...the planning! I will send a questionnaire which is helpful in my personalizing this session for you. I also send a Client Experience Guide which has lot of helpful tips including a What to Wear Guide! This guide is very specific and includes visual boards and links for where to shop. I want you to look and feel your very best and I want to remain consistent with my clients and editing style. These guides are very important and helpful in planning your wardrobe for you and your family!
Let's Do This!
Step 3 of 5
Today is the day! We are photographing your maternity session. The pictures you will one day show your child and tell them "that was you in my belly!"

Photographing Your Portrait Session
Step 4 of 5
It's the email you have been waiting for...you're images are ready! Two weeks after your session, you can expect an email from me with proofs from your maternity session. In the email gallery you will be able to pick your favorite images from your session. Your session comes with digital images, however think of this gallery as it's own little shop! You can order prints, albums and other products right from your gallery.
Once you pick the images you want fully edited, you can expect those pictures to be ready in 10 days. Every session comes with a USB mailed to your home. As a busy mom, I know how hard it can be to get those images off of your computer or phone. I provide high quality prints and products that you simply can not get from a local store. I order through my professional lab and guarantee they are the highest quality products. I want to take all the work out for you so you just enjoy the memories!
Your Photographs are Ready!
Step 5 of 5
Upon booking, I have a full session guide that helps you to prepare for your session. This also includes a what to wear guide. This guide is filled with lots of tips on wardrobe, colors, patterns, accessories and even what to stay away from. I have visual boards as well as shopping recommendations for you to utilize.

WHAT TO WEAR
The best time to have your maternity photo session is between 35 and 37 weeks. My schedule fills up quickly, so the sooner you schedule, the sooner we can get you in that very specific timeframe! Significant others and siblings are always welcome and encouraged!
WHEN TO SCHEDULE
If you are familiar with my brand, you know I love natural and organic moments. We will still get those moments, I will just be guiding you to the most flattering poses and angles for mama looking and feeling her best!
Trust is the key to any good investment. I can tell you, countless hours are put into planning and creating your session and that’s before you even arrive. Even more hours are put in after the session editing your galleries and packaging and ordering your favorite heirloom products. My goal is for the end result, to be a wonderful experience and for you to cherish these images for years to come. The time and money you invest in my craft and my experience, is reflected in the fee. When you invest in me, you can rest assured that I will in turn invest all of me, in the planning, experience, delivery and ordering of images.
I truly hope we can work together to capture timeless memories for you to forever cherish!

I cannot wait until we can book Laura again to capture our family photos! We had so much fun during our session and I have the most stunning photos to cherish forever! I am so grateful to Laura for her creativity and patience, she had everything setup so perfectly and was absolutely wonderful with our three daughters (ages 1, 5 and 7). If you are looking to have family photos, newborn shots or anything in between definitely book a session with Laura because you will be so impressed!

I happened upon Laura's website when looking for a family photographer for my notoriously difficult family (think: husband who hates his picture taken and 3 kids, ages 3, 5 & 6). I emailed Laura and she got back to me right away and I could tell she was easygoing, accommodating and professional- right off the bat.
Our session took place outdoors at a local park. She was so pleasant and good with the kids. Very knowledgeable about our location and where exactly to go for the best shots. It was so quick and such a pleasant experience- natural shots where she really just captured my family at their best. No silly artificial poses. Just simple, understated and classy. It was a far cry from the stuffy studio shots we had been doing for the past 6 years or so. She was so efficient my kids didn't even have time to get antsy. Everyone was put at ease by her calm nature and the final result? I couldn't possibly be happier. The photos are amazing. We received them shortly after our session, as promised, and they are more than I could have asked for. I can't say enough wonderful things about Laura McCarney Photography.

We had the best experience with Laura! Our baby came a week early and she was able to schedule a date for our photo shoot with ease! When she arrived she was very organized and set up took no time at all. The way she worked with our little girl was awesome, I called her the baby whisperer because she was able to get the pose and the perfect picture while keeping the baby comfortable! We received the photos very fast through the mail and they were absolutely AMAZING! We couldn't ask for a better experience, we now have our photographer for all our family needs! Thanks Laura!
Laura has photographed our Christmas card, baby announcement, maternity & newborn photos. We absolutely love them. From taking pictures in the water on the beach in April to a uncooperative newborn, she has shown such professionalism and patience. I can be a little particular of what ideas I have in mind and she makes sure to capture them everytime. We plan to use her services again and again.
