Looking for someone to do maternity shoot

Hey everyone - We are having our first child in April, and we're looking to do a maternity shoot. I wanted to see if any parents/to-be parents here have suggestions for photographers around Berkeley/Bay area. Everything we found looks super expensive, and the portfolio pics weren't even that great. Please let me know if you have any good suggestions that are affordable. Thank you! :)

I recently did a maternity shoot with a Cheri from Roots & Shoots Photography. She is great. Made me feel really comfortable and totally captured the look I was going for. I don’t know if our pictures are part of her portfolio yet-it was done recently, but I would be happy to send you a couple if you’re interested. 

Congratulations!

I can't recommend Lynn Bagley highly enough!  https://www.lynnbagley.com/. Very talented and warm and easy to work with. She is based in Bolinas but to my knowledge works all around the Bay Area.  I also can't speak to her prices but a quick email would solve that.  Definitely check her out!

I highly recommend EP Li Photography.  She did a shoot of a dear friend's birth and a shoot of our family when our daughter was 5 weeks old.  The photos are stunning and she is a lovely person.  She even runs a daycare when she's not being a photographer.

She's been shooting our family since our kids were babies (now 10 and 12) and sadly we didn't find her when I was pregnant! Her maternity photos are fantastic.

Hi, I'd like to recommend Keri Vaca. She's a fabulous professional photographer who has been in the business for 20 years. She volunteered for 10 years taking maternity portraits at the Homeless Prenatal Program. She's a beautiful person inside and out and I can't say enough good things about her or her skill at capturing the true essence of her subjects. Check out her website, kerivaca.com.  There are links on her site to media coverage of her work, here's one: https://www.today.com/parents/photographer-captures-struggling-moms-be-s.... Good luck and congrats!
