the maternity experience austin texas

You have entered one of the most important times in your life. Your pregnancy is a celebration. This is the path to understanding unconditional love. My mission is to capture your inner strength and beauty through timeless works of art to live in your family for generations. I am happy to offer a day just for you and an unforgettable experience where we will create the most beautiful maternity portraits.


Maternity sessions are recommended around 25 or 32 weeks into your pregnancy. I want you to feel comfortable while I pose you through the session. The first step is a complimentary consultation call (voice or video) where we talk about your why, and your vision. I explain the process in more detail and talk about pricing.
I’ll guide you every step of the way from exploring how you wish to be photographed, to designing a dream photo shoot just for you and helping you prepare for this incredible day.
Once you decide to live this experience, a retainer fee is required to reserve date and time.

Once you have booked your date, we can start planning your outfits.

Your maternity session includes up to 4 different looks (outfit changes). You have full access to my growing client closet. Tulle robes, fabrics, dresses and the beautiful wings are available for you. If you don't want to invest in additional clothing, you can use all that you want from the studio. 


Finally the day of your photoshoot!

You will be treated like a celebrity. A full glam day that starts with professional hair and makeup, many change of outfits, lots of fun and lots of laughs. It's not your job to know how to pose, it is my job to make you look like you belong to a magazine cover, and to give you incredible images from your photoshoot, and beautiful images for your family and future generations.

The second most exciting day, it's time to see your pictures!

Around one week after your photoshoot, we will meet one more time (in person or over Zoom) and you will get to see your full gallery of images. We will go over all the products that are available for you.
What you order is up to you, be ready to love them all!

Collections start at $1450

5. your products

After you are done with this amazing experience, you will receive archival, museum quality products to keep your photographs for generations. You can choose from heirloom albums, luxury boxes, stunning and unique pieces of wall art. There is an option for everyone. And you will receive the corresponding digital with every photo you want to keep. 
The times to have your pictures in your phone are done. A picture that is not printed and in your hands, it has all the risk to be lost and forgotten.

The Process

Ingrid has such a special gift for truly seeing her clients and capturing their unique essence through her lens. My photo shoot with Ingrid was an unforgettable experience and the I will cherish the photos forever! Thank you, Ingrid for using your gifts to help us all see our own beauty, power and strength that exudes from the inside out! You are an amazing photographer and I’m so happy I found you!!

Ingrid is so wonderful! I came to her for new professional headshots and she exceeded my expectations. She immediately made me feel comfortable and confident and the pictures she took turned out beautiful. I highly recommend her!

Ingrid + the entire portrait experience she provides = INCREDIBLE! If I could give 6/5 stars, I would. The booking and consultation process with her was so easy, and I could tell from our first email that I was in very good hands. My hair and makeup were done professionally on-site (all organized and scheduled by Ingrid). During my session, Ingrid kept things flowing nicely and boosted my confidence when she could see that I was unsure about myself or didn’t know what to do with my hands/body/etc. When I saw my photos, I cried. No joke! I couldn't believe how they came out, or that it was me in the pictures. Invest in yourself and book a photoshoot with Ingrid ASAP, you will seriously NOT regret it.

Ingrid Barnhart is an amazing photographer and human being. She truly is one of the best and it shows, through her work, attitude, and personality. She makes you feel comfortable and confident. The quality and creativity of the photos are outstanding! The session was fun and such a great experience. Ingrid Barnhart Photography is the best in the industry!! Always professional, fun, capturing every shot with perfection!! She was very organized, professional and respectful throughout the entire process. She has an amazing way of making women feel empowered and beautiful, 10/10 would recommend every time!

Ingrid was super great to work with and very easy going, so it made the photoshoot very comfortable and easy. She listened to my feedback and was open to trying different angles than what we had originally discussed. The photos came out great, and I couldn't be happier!

I highly recommend Ingrid for maternity photos! She is so kind and easy to work with - instantly put me at ease while taking photos. The images I received as a result are nothing short of amazing too!


It will be my pleasure to create magazine style pictures for you!
