Investment & Experience Details

Women are so stunning during pregnancy. I love being able to capture their beauty, their glow, their excitement for bringing a brand new life into this world. I remember being pregnant was one of the most amazing feelings in this world. Knowing what my body was capable of, was a feeling like no other! I pride myself in being able to make pregnant women feel beautiful. At a time when your body is growing and changing and not being able to know  if your clothes will fit from day to day. I remember that feeling all to well. Though I felt beautiful, there were times I would cry in my closet because I simply had nothing to wear that made me feel pretty.  I have you covered with my Gowns!  Collections starting at $425 (tax)

Your greatest Love Story

They are only new once, and capturing their tiny features is best in the first ten days of life.

You never want to look back and wish you had professional photos of your newborn. That is why I offer flexible payment plans. These moments are here and then gone in just a blink of a eye. They are only this tiny once! As a Mother of 2 little ones myself, I can promise you, these moments are fleeting and ones you will WISH you had more of. Let me be part of your story.  Collections start at $450 (tax) Ask about my Bump to Baby Story

The last thing you want to worry about when you are pregnant is what to wear.   Especially when you body is changing daily! You are growing another human, think about the magnitude of that for a moment! 12.9 Photography is one of the only photographers in Cincinnati, Ohio to have full client closet with over 100 gowns for you to choose from! Let me help enhance. your glow with my gorgeous collection of designer maternity gowns. I promise you will feel like a princess!  

What Do I Wear?

Step 1 of 5

The whole point of this session is to show off your bump, so you want to wait until you are showing, but we also want you to still feel great for your session! This is where we have, what I like to call a "magic window" of time! It is the time during your pregnancy where you for sure look pregnant, it is still easy to move around and you haven't yet started to swell in your face! Some people are super lucky and don't ever have those issues, and move through their whole pregnancy with ease! After years of photographing pregnant women, I would say for first pregnancies, you should schedule between 26-30 weeks. For second, third, or multiples, I would recommend scheduling between 20-24 weeks, as you tend to show quicker.

When to Schedule Your Stylized Maternity Sessions

Step 2 of 5

This is the most important part of any session, and why I pride myself in providing a client closet of over 100 maternity gowns exclusively for my clients to use. I want you to look and feel your very best when you are with me. Every expectant Mother feels differently about how she wants her bump to look. This is why I have tight fitting gowns, flowy gowns, and every color, and style you could possibly imagine! I want you to feel like a pregnant goddess when you are with me! You only have this ONE time to capture these priceless moments while your baby is growing inside of you, let me help you in making you look and feel amazing during your session! 


Step 3 of 5

I love to take my time and get to know you during the session. Since you will be changing into multiple gowns for your session, expect to be there a little longer than an hour. Our sessions together are fun and easy going, there is no pressure to race against a clock when you are with me! 

How long does the session last?

Step 4 of 5

-About 1-2 weeks before your session, we will get in contact to discuss gown selections.You can view them all on my facebook page
-If you have little ones joining you, be sure to bring some dry snacks along with you!
-Change of Outfits: just in case of an accident (especially for those little ones) 
-Comfort items: pacifiers, blanket, wipes, that thing that will make them smile
-Manicure- I often zoom in on your hands touching your belly, go ahead and treat yourself to a manicure before your session

The Investment Details

 found Maria through a friend. I was pulled in by her beautiful work. The beautiful dresses she has for her pregnant clients. this being my last pregnancy and having twins I wanted to sign up for her bump to baby package. She is very professional, pleasant, and easy to work with and take care of everything for you. no need to stress about what to wear. she gives you ideas. I'm so glad I did this package because I will have beautiful photos of me and my twin girls! I recommend Maria, 12:9 photography to anyone pregnant and looking for that extra step to make you feel beautiful during your pregnancy! when your baby has arrived she takes care of them as well during their photo session. she has the magic touch to get them back to sleep. Thank you so much Maria!

We opted for Maria's bump to belly package and I got to choose dresses from her many beautiful options and I now have some very special memories of our rainbow baby bump. Once our little one arrived Maria did an amazing job capturing his sweet face and made the experience very easy. I'm so happy to have these beautiful pictures of my rainbow baby to cherish forever. I would highly recommend Maria's services!
