    I had maternity portraits done a few years ago by Mara Oatman. I am expecting again. Mara, unfortunately is not doing photography these days. But she referred me to you and said you were fantastic. I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and would love to get portraits again soon before I become humongous(this time with some photos including my 2.5 yr old son). I noticed your session fee is $250. Does that include anything other than the session? Anytime I get professional photos done, I like to get the CD with all the images. Is this an option? and if so, how much does it cost? Thanks so much!
