The Portfolio

- Amy B. | Maternity, Newborn + Family Client

Lauri and Carrie made me feel comfortable and beautiful when I certainly did not feel that way! (7 months pregnant + 2.5 postpartum.) They recommended hair + makeup and had a full wardrobe for me to choose from. I didn't have to worry about anything! The photos exceeded all expectations and I'll treasure them forever."

"I would 100% recommend
Winter Freire Photography!

- Aleks H. | Maternity boudoir, newborn + Family client

We met them while I was pregnant with our daughter and have since done maternity, newborn, and 6 month milestone sessions with them so far. I have never felt so beautiful as I have when I'm styled in their studio wardrobe and in front of their cameras. I can't even express how grateful I am to them for capturing the most precious moments of our lives for us to look back on forever."

"There aren't enough words to describe how much we love Lauri and Carrie and their amazing work! 

- MEGAN K. | Maternity, Newborn, + family client

"We LOVE Lauri and Carrie! We have gone to them for maternity, one/two/three year milestones, and all Santa/Holiday sessions for the past few years. We love how our house is filled with their beautiful images. I love the ease of having an outfit inspiration board emailed to me and/or using the wardrobe for mother and baby - it makes our lives so much easier! Lauri is always available to check over outfits and give her opinion since she knows the aesthetics best.

They are more than just photographers, they are an experience and worth every penny. 10/10 would recommend!

 NORA W. | Newborn + Family Client

With our oldest, it was the most relaxing and calm experience doing her photos! With our youngest, our toddler was having meltdowns left and right and what would have been a really stressful time ended up being so much better than we expected. Lauri and Carrie were so engaging and fun with her and worked some kind of magic to get us the most precious photos. One of my favorite parts is that you are able to use their studio wardrobe to style and have the ability to pick out accessories and colors that speak to you so each photo session from them is so unique with the same elegant look."

"Lauri and Carrie have done both of my daughters newborn photos and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! These are photos we will treasure forever and the best investment.

We want to help time stand still for your growing family by documenting all of the sentimental details + beautiful moments for you. We'll provide a custom and equally special session day experience you'll love, and ends with tangible artwork you will treasure.

Almost every session is photographed by both Lauri + Carrie. Lauri, the lead photographer, captures the essential portraits + family combinations while Carrie assists and focuses on the organic in-between moments and details. This unique approach provides clients with so many amazing, diverse moments captured quickly + simultaneously. Having two photographers means special moments are not missed and close attention is being paid to every detail, as both photographers constantly ensure everyone looks their very best throughout the entire session.

We recommend having your maternity photos taken anywhere between 28-34 weeks along in your pregnancy. It’s very important to book the session as early as possible so we can guarantee you receive the best placement on our calendar for your upcoming session.

How far along should I be for my DAYTON maternity photos?

We absolutely love to include immediate family into our full experience maternity sessions. Family can be involved in just a few of the images or for the majority of the session - the choice is entirely up to you! Our maternity sessions keep the focus on what’s most important to you - whether that’s a gallery filled with gorgeous images of just you and your bump, or centered more around you celebrating the pregnancy with your family.

Can my partner or family be involved in my maternity session?

The Full Experience Maternity session can take place in studio or in an outdoor location. It offers a longer shoot time and the option to include immediate family and multiple outfit changes for mom. Since the gallery is much larger, it’s a great option for someone looking for a variety of images that feature maternity portraits as well as organic moments. The Petite Maternity session offers a shorter session that includes 1 outfit in studio and is a great option for someone desiring only a few classic maternity portraits of themselves with their beautiful bump.

Should I book a Full Experience Maternity session or a Petite Studio Maternity session?

The Luxury Membership is a great option for someone expecting a baby because it captures Baby’s First Year perfectly: Maternity, Newborn, 6 Month and 1 Year. Mom will receive one complimentary professional hair + makeup for the session of her choice. It’s also a great way to receive additional perks and savings along the way!


Maternity Boudoir images can be incorporated into any full experience studio Maternity session! Simply let us know you’re interested ahead of time and we will help you with wardrobe and planning.

How do I add Maternity Boudoir images into my Maternity session?

Full experience maternity sessions select 2-3 outfits. Petite studio maternity sessions wear 1 outfit.

How many outfits will I wear during my DAYTON maternity session?
