Investment & Senior 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 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. Collections Starting at $325

The 12.9 Photography Experience

Dancing is something that takes time, dedication and years to perfect. No matter where. you are on your dance journey, you deserve to have unique dance photos to remember this time by.  Collections start at $350




It's ALL ABOUT YOU! Your time has come! Chances are you have been waiting for this moment for a long time! Your senior year! Congrats! You have arrived! 
And I am excited to be a tiny part of your journey! I want this experience to be awesome for you! From our pre-session discussions, to adding on hair/make-up, to choosing the perfect locations for your session, this experience is going to be EPIC! I know you will love your photos for years to come!  Packages start at $599

How many outfits do I bring? You are the main event for this session, so for girls, I recommend about 5 outfits. Guys, I would say about 3. However, you don't have to stop there! The more the merrier when it comes to outfit choices! That way we can mix and match! Think casual, formal, things that really show off your style! If you cheer or are a football player, bring those uniforms as well! We for sure need a photo in those outfits! Layers are also important! Especially if you have booked a fall session! Think scarfs, vests, jackets and I am also a huge fan of things that have textures! I will also send you my Senior Style Guide once you have booked

What Should I Wear?

Step 1 of 3

SHOES: Bring several pairs of them! You need to have at least one to match each outfit and you don't want to wear
the same pair for each one!
ACCESSORIES: Think hats: floppy hats, things we can take on/off to add to an outfit, jewelry, sunglasses.          
TIP AND TRICKS: Be sure to wear the correct undergarments. AKA: strapless bra and nude colored undergarments. There is nothing worse than thinking I can fix that bra strap that keeps falling down or black under a white dress!! OMG! Talk about wardrobe malfunction! LOL! Let's make sure that doesn't happen by starting with the right things underneath first! 
Be you, be authentic and be comfortable. Don't try to be someone you are not for your senior photos! This is not the time to try out a new outfit that is totally outside your normal way of dressing. You need to be confident and comfortable in what you are wearing, but mostly, you need to look like yourself, just a tiny bit extra!

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!
