Sonoma County Maternity Photographer

Diana Jex is a lifestyle maternity photographer serving Sonoma, Marin, and Napa County.

As a Sonoma County maternity photographer, I believe maternity photos serve as a celebration of the incredible journey of pregnancy, capturing the beauty, anticipation, and love that surrounds this special time.


As you eagerly await the arrival of your little one, these photographs provide a tangible reminder of the profound connection you share with your growing baby.

I will make sure you look and feel your best at your Marin, Napa, or Sonoma County session - providing you with poses that don't look posed, but do make you look like your best, natural self.


This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your body and the remarkable things that it's doing, and I’m here to make sure you look and feel amazing while we do that.

This is a time to celebrate the bond you share with your partner and this journey that you’re embarking on. I'll provide prompts to get you and your partner smiling and laughing in your own way - capturing the emotion and joy between the two of you in a way that feels authentic to who you are.

A Sonoma County maternity photography session provides an opportunity for you to bond with your partner and family as you anticipate the new addition to your family. Whether it's a quiet moment shared between you and your partner or a joyful embrace with siblings-to-be, these photographs capture the love and excitement that fills your home as you prepare for your baby's arrival.

What to expect with maternity photography.

How it Works

You can expect your Marin, Napa, or Sonoma County maternity photography session to be calm, relaxed, and comfortable. This is a special time for you and your family and my goal is to capture memories that you will be thrilled to look back on - especially with your baby when they're older. This is a time that is so monumental - the cusp of a huge life shift! - and I'm here to create images that will help you remember the magic of that moment.


Before the Session

Before your maternity photography session, I will send you a questionnaire so I can learn about you and your family, and your ideas and preferences for the session. This way I can tailor the experience specifically to your family's needs. I'll help you pick out the perfect outfits, as well as offering personalized guidance and my best tips and tricks honed from my years of experience. I'll also help you with picking the best location for outdoor sessions.


After the Session

Within two weeks of your session, I will send you your private online gallery of high resolution photos. These are completely yours to share, print, and showcase as you would like! 


During the Session

During the session, all you'll need to do is relax and focus on your family or partner - I'll be taking care of the rest! I'll guide you through a series of setups and "poses" (i.e., you won't look stiff and posed, but you also won't be standing there in front of my camera with no idea of how to stand or what to do with your hands!). If you're expecting your first child, we'll focus on creating imagery of you, your bump, and you with your partner. If you have kids, this will be a family session as well as a maternity session!


What’s Included

  • A client questionnaire to plan your session

  • Assistance with session outfit planning

  • Session location guidance

  • All edited photos from your session

  • Private online gallery

I am so happy I took a chance on Diana to capture my last maternity photos. She made my family and I feel comfortable and relaxed during our shoot. She took the time to understand what I wanted to capture during our session and provided several different options in terms of locations for our shoot. Our pictures came out better than I could have ever imagined and I will definitely be booking with her again for our next family shoot. Diana was also super responsive and professional throughout the entire process.
