Our maternity sessions are designed for expectant moms who want to embrace the beauty of pregnancy and celebrate the life their bodies are creating. We specialize in bold and emotive outdoor maternity photography, capturing the raw and authentic essence of this transformative time.
Scheduled during the golden hours of sunrise or sunset for soft, flattering light that enhances the natural beauty of the surroundings and your pregnancy glow.
Our sessions take place in the heart of nature, whether it's the lush landscapes of Ottawa, the serene beauty of Petawawa, or the picturesque settings of Pembroke, creating a magical backdrop for your maternity portraits.
Every expectant mother deserves to feel like a goddess, and our goal is to immortalize the radiance of this moment in time

"Silken is amazing at what she does! She did a maternity shoot for me & I couldn’t be happier. I’m definitely still getting used to my body as it changes through pregnancy, so I was a bit nervous. Silken made me feel so confident & beautiful the entire time. Her client closet is a dream come true! So many stunning dresses to choose from. She sent me a few photos right away as a sneak peek as well! Cannot recommended Silken enough! 🥰"

At Silk Sellinger Photography, we prioritize your experience from the very first consultation. Our client-centric approach begins with a complimentary Zoom consultation, where we not only discuss your vision for the session but also guide you through our exclusive client closet. This curated selection of wardrobe options ensures that you not only look but feel your best during your session.
Our commitment to excellence extends to providing in-home session options, creating an environment where your family can authentically shine. We believe in capturing the essence of your unique story, and what better place to do so than the comfort of your own home? This personalized touch ensures that every image is a genuine reflection of your family's personality and connection.
With Silk Sellinger Photography, it's not just about capturing moments; it's about crafting an experience that leaves you with treasured memories. From wardrobe guidance to in-home sessions, our goal is to make every step of the process seamless and enjoyable, ensuring that your family's story is told with authenticity, warmth, and a touch of luxury.
I didn't actually discover this why until I found my niche in photography. At first, as most photographers do, I shot everything and anything. Eventually I found what I truly love. Maternity. A mom being a mom, it's so powerful.
My favourite thing to here at a gallery reveal is "I feel so beautiful", "I look like a goddess". YES, YES YOU DO, BECAUSE YOU ARE. Pregnancy has got to be one of the most downplayed miracles on this earth. You are creating life, you are building life, pardon my language but you ARE a FRICKEN QUEEN and I will work SO hard to make every mama believe this...because I have been in your shoes. What pregnancy did to my body knocked me down hard. I didn't even get photos because I disliked myself so much, oh boy do I regret that. I look back at myself and see myself in a different light. I want you to skip over that disliking yourself phase and let me show you how much of an absolute goddess you are.
I'm Silken nice to meet you
Can my partner and other children join the session?
What should I wear for my Ottawa maternity photography session?
A: Absolutely! We encourage partners and siblings to be a part of the session, as it adds a beautiful dimension to the storytelling of your pregnancy journey.
A: We recommend flowy dresses, form-fitting outfits that highlight your belly, or any attire that makes you feel comfortable and confident. We can discuss specific wardrobe options during the pre-session consultation. We also offer a selection of beautifully curated dresses hand selected and designed right here in Canada.
Are there specific locations you recommend, or can we choose our own?
We have a list of stunning outdoor locations, but we're also open to capturing your maternity session in a location that holds personal significance to you. Let's discuss the options during the planning stage.
What happens if the weather is bad on the day of the session?
In case of inclement weather, we can reschedule the session to ensure optimal conditions and a comfortable experience for everyone involved. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities.
Does the session fee go towards the product after? What about digitals?
The session fee covers our meetings/consultations and time spent shooting and editing. It is not applied towards products. No digitals come with the session fee and I do not offer them alone. My goal is to get the beautiful heirloom art on your walls for you to pass down to your little ones. Being a mom I totally understand wanting that digital though. So I do include a matching digital file with every print purchased that is printable up to 8X10.
